  1. 5.0L Tech
    Hey guys, so I have a donor 5.0 HO for my wife's '66 Mustang and I thought since I had the pan off for the change I would check the bearings. The engine is supposed to have between 90-100k miles on it. Both the mains and rods checked out at 3-1/2 thousandths with Plastigage. The rod I checked...

    which one is better and will last longer, spherical bearings or the polyurethane bushings or is there really a difference? 2012 5.0 stock suspension side note: may add lowering springs and new shocks/struts if that matters

    im not certain if it is the bearings or not but theres a constant "warbling" or semi high pitched whistle coming from the rear end when im maintaining certain speeds (the higher the speed the louder the noise) jacked it up and tried wiggling the wheels but they didnt budge also checked the U...

    Hey guys, I have a 2004 GT automatic. I just recently had new pads and rotors replaced on all four wheels. I did this because there was a high pitched squeel coming from the right rear wheel. There was also a type of grinding felt in the brake pedal right before I come to a complete stop...

    Recently I noticed a "squeaking" noise coming from my engine. I figured out it was the smog pump. when I spun the pulley it makes a bad squeaking sound. Do I need a new smog pump? or could I get new bearings for it? or do I need a new pulley?

  10. 2.3L Tech
    i was wondering if the tailshft bearing would be cosidered part of a transmission rebuild. today i took my driveshaft out and you could move the tailshft up and down and side to side.could that be the bearing or a bent tailshaft? i think the tranny shop is trying to get one over on me. i need...

    Hey all. My 96 GT makes an annoying whine when I start to roll (when letting out the clutch in 1st gear). I don't think it's the clutch, though. It sounds like it's coming from the rear of the car (rear end? rear wheel bearings?), and it only happens when I start going from a dead stop or a...
