    Bled my brakes tonight, each wheel 3-4 times then went to next wheel and repeated process. Started with rr, rl, fr, fl. Filled MC as needed and when the entire process was completed, I noticed that my old fluid that I kept was extremely dirty compared to new fluid. My car only has 4,300 miles on...

    I have an 2008 Bullitt and it is time for me to get some brake pads. I have stock right now. Stock rear rotors with wearever rotors up front (so basically crappy yet long lasting rotors). I am looking to for pads with more stopping power, brake dust is not my first concern seeing how the bullitt...

    My 1995 V6 has a leak on one of the steel brake lines that run across at the front end. I figured I'd replace all 3 of those lines. It has ABS. Haynes says this: "The HCU on an ABS system can not be bled without a very expensive tool." Two of the lines go from the Brake Pressure Control Valve to...

    Hi all, i recently installed rear brake pads on my 98 3.8 v6, and ever since when the brakes get warmed up I hear an awful moan coming from pass. Rear when taking slow and sharp right turns. Sometimes when the brakes are really warmed up (stop and go) they will moan for a second on take off. I...

    I have a 65 V8 convertible with aftermarket power brakes. It is a recent restoration. After I installed the engine wiring harness I tested all of my electrical components. I noticed my brake lights won't turn off and my headlights won't turn on. I'm pretty sure the headlights aren't...

    I have a 2001 V6 Automatic and recently my shifting at speeds 20-50mph have been slow to shift, and very jerky in their shifting. Another characteristic of the issue is that if I retain pressure on my accelerator at a steady amount (Let's say 40% depressed), acceleration will be intermittent...

    I'm putting in new soft lines with for my disc brakes and I'm having trouble getting the old lines off. The passenger side came off with not too much trouble, but the drivers side is being impossible. The connectors are starting to round off, is there anything I should try other than yanking out...

    Got an issue I hope you can assist me with... Just bought a 2006 Mustang GT automatic with convertible top. I am third owner. Vehicle has 64K. Background. I'm sort of in a pissing match with the dealer over a "he said/she said" regarding 30 day return policy if they don't cover repairs after...

    I have a 67 289 coupe with power drum brakes I want to convert to front disc. Can I use the master cylinder and booster I have now or do they need to be replaced? Any suggestions for a conversion kit?
  14. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    It's time to replace the front brakes and rear shocks after 33,000 miles. Any suggestions on aftermarket upgrades or stock replacements for both? I think I might want a firmer rider and response than stock, most noticeably up front, so struts/springs may come into play. Looking for input...

    Hello everybody, I have a 2007 Mustang V6 with around 67,000 miles. It has done its job ever since I bought it 2 and half years ago with 50,000 miles on the odometer. When I bought it, the first thing it needed was new brakes. I got brand new rotors, calipers, and pads, basically the whole...

    Hey guys! So prior to me replacing my rear brake shoes on my pony, I was getting a chirping/squeaking noise out of both of my rear tires. I thought it could be my brake shoes due to the chirping/squeaking would stop when applying the brake and E-brake. It would only do it when going 1-15mph and...

    I recently bought my first car, which happens to be a 1965 Ford Mustang coupe with a 6 cylinder engine, automatic transmission, manual steering (I think), and original drum brakes. I am restoring it to be my daily driver, nothing fancy like a show car. I'm only 18 and have had very little...

    Hey guys I have a 2003 mustang automatic v6 with 122k miles and have some questions. So I was driving on a snowy road, and I went to turn around on some ice and this happened. When I applied the brake the ABS kicked in and wouldn't stop until I got to dry pavement. When I was in the snow the...

    So I was browsing the classifieds when I saw a 1977 Mustang 2 being parted out with no engine or tranny but had the complete suspension. Its only listed for $400. I wanna put disc brakes and rack and pinion steering on my 1968 Mustang. This sounds like a good deal to me. Is it just a bolt in...
