  2. 2014 GT X-Pipe Exhaust Leak -- Gaskets? Sealants?

    Greetings. I installed the Ford Racing X-Pipe onto my 2014 Mustang GT and have a small exhaust leak at both sides of the X-Pipe where the "ball and cup" attach to the stock cat downpipes. This is a known issue for this particular X-Pipe. Does anyone know of a gasket, sealant, or exhaust tape...
  3. Oil leak near oil filter 2003 V6 mustang

    V6 Tech
    I have noticed an oil leak from somewhere above the oil filter. From looking around at various forums, it seems like a common problem would be for the oil filter adapter gasket to go bad in 4.6 L engine. But not many people have complained about this in a v6 3.8l engine. Has this happened to...

  6. Head or Lower intake gasket?

    V6 Tech
    Hello, I have a 1995 V6. The coolant in my car slowly disappears. It is not leaking on the pavement, its not in the oil, and it does not look like its coming out of the exhaust but I suspect it is. I did a pressure test (used a vacuum and gauge on the radiator) and the cooling system held...
  7. JBA O/R H Hardware 99-04 (need specs)

    SVT Cobra Tech
    I purchased a used JBA o/r hpipe for cheap but it doesn't have the hardware. I called JBA but they keep sending me in circles to different people. Does anyone here know the nut/bolt specs? also, do you think some cut-it-yourself gasket with some dabs of liquid gasket will work ok?
  8. Oil in the Cylinder

The dealership where i get the $10 oil change deal has mentioned a leaky gasket before, but I feel like i am misfiring on a cylinder when trying to accelerate. Is there any connection...

    I just recently bought a 2000 Mustang GT with 142,000 miles on it. First off, when I first start it up, some white smoke exits the exhaust when under slightly heavy acceleration. After it warms up, it doesn't smoke anymore. Secondly, there looks to be nothing wrong with the oil, no white crap...
