    I have read a lot of posts and watched a lot of videos on this but have found no solution yet. This intermittent chirp/squeak started early this year on my 2002 Mustang GT. It sometimes lasts several seconds to a minute, sometimes on/off like Morse Code, and sometimes goes away completely...

    Ford’s upcoming heavy-duty gasoline truck engine, codenamed “7X,” was believed to be a 7.0-liter V8 built with the express purpose of replacing the 6.8-liter Triton V10 and perhaps the 6.2-liter Boss V8. While the program will indeed bear fruit at Ford’s Windsor Engine Plant next year, there’s...

    Hi all. New to this site. As the title states, my 2013 GT/CS does this thing when I'm cruising at lower speeds and RPMs. When my foot is held steady on the gas, it kinda cuts out or backs off a little, then recovers quickly; happens about every 3 minutes or so. It seems to improve a little...
