    5.0L Tech
    I had my hood open because I was working on something else on my engine and after closing it and driving for a bit I heard a tapping or "knocking". I opened my hood again and still heard it.

  7. 2005 Mustang v6 Eibach Pro Kit Plus Knock

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    I installed the Eiback pro-kit plus last weekend. Kit drove great the first three days. There's more noise entering the car in terms of thuds going over bumps because of the stiffer springs. But that was expected and reasonable. However, yesterday, after about 250 miles, there's now a...

  17. Knocking noise when braking.

    V6 Tech
    Whenever I brake moderately hard my car makes a knocking noise that seems to come from where the brake pedal is. It doesn't do it if I brake softly. My dad says it's because the tires are worn out and the anti-lock is engaging. I have a 2002 v6 Mustang. Any one know what it could be?
