  1. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Hi all, Recently I got a noise problem in my GT. It started suddenly, while I was driving. I wasn't accelerating hard or hit any pothole, just normal drive and it started. Problems is about rumble/hollow noise from the front part of the car (somewhere around engine, on the driver side) that...

    Hello, Probably a stupid question but why is it when I'm wanting to accelerate quickly, for instance Interstate driving, lane changing and just flat out hot dogging it. My car will kinda like hesitate, bog down for a second then RPM's jump up from 2 to 3.5 then shift normally after that? Seems...

    my car is an 89 mustang 5.0 lx (manual 5 speed) My mustang had been driving great the past few months. But last week on my way home from work out of no where, I noticed a clinking / ticking noise under the hood as I accelerated. Once I was at a steady speed with no high rpms or accelerating the...

    (Video) 2010 V6 continues accelerating after releasing pedal Hey Guys, I brought my 2010 V6 Mustang Convertible in to a Ford Service center about a month/month and a half a go. It was having what is probably a throttle related issue where my Stang continues accelerating even after I release...

    Hey guys I just bought a 2006 mustang gt and have been noticing that while I accelerate I hear and feel a vibration under the armrest and shifter area. It feels like maybe somebody dropped something in there and now it rolls back when I accelerate but I'm not sure. I guess my question is could...

    Hey guys! New here and just purchased a 2005 V6 with 155K miles on it. I love it, but it's got some quirks... It has a pretty significant rumble when idling. Needle is steady, but the whole car shakes, sometimes worse than others. Today it threw out a P0301 code (misfire in cylinder #1.) I...

  8. 2.3L Tech
    First off I'm going to say that I'm not a mechanic and far from it. The little bit I know about cars is from learning to fix my own. I have a 93' 2.3L Convertible. When i first got the car about 3 years ago everything seemed fine. At a dead stop she accelerated nicely and ran like a champ...

    Hey guys, my car is whining quite a bit now. I have noticed it is only when I touch the throttle. It will happen for about 5 seconds, then it will stop. If i keep accelerating, it will keep whining. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks, Cole

    I changed the spark plugs so i know its not that. Also i got a SCT trouble code reader and no codes where thrown so im lost? It normally happens in low rpms also

    Figures quoted by Ford for MPG are for the 3.31 rear while different sources for 0-60 times are for the 3.73 rear axle ratio equipped cars. Does anyone know the MPG for the 3.73 and/or the 0-60 for the 3.31?

    I know this may be hard to beleive, but I've never taken my car above ~5000 RPM. I may have gotten above 4500, once. My accelerations are always very gradual - really, the car pulls strong (enough for me) up to the 4K mark. I'm very much a conservative driver and I'm terribly afraid of tickets...

    Hello, I have a 1998 Cobra that has a few problems that I am attempting to take care of, but one seems to be eluding not only myself but every mechanic that has ever looked at the car. I will attempt to describe it as best I can, if you feel I have missed some detail please feel free to remind...

    My mustang gt 1996 just recently start making a rather loud clicking sound while im accelerating and its volume seems proportional to how fast i accelerating and it becomes more rapid as rpms go up. it does it in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and some times 4th and maybe 5th. when i rev the engine it sound...
