  1. What would be considered "high mileage"?

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    Hi, I recently got into a wreck with my 99 v6 Mustang. I am thinking about replacing it with an 05-09 model. I have found a 2005 that I like for about $6,000, but it has 140,000 miles on it. Would that be pretty high mileage for those years? My 99 only has 85,000 on it, and I'm not really sure...

  3. Gear swap on 2011?

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Just wondering if I should be concerned about having my rear gears swapped after 35K miles on 2.73's? Is there any reason to avoid drivetrain mods due to mileage? Also, does anyone know of a good gear shop in Central Illinois? Thanks

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    I don't know if anyone else happens to have this issue, but when I stop to get gas, I reset the trip meter so that I can watch my mileage. I drive to wherever my destination may be 5, 10, 15 miles. I turn the car off and it doesn't matter how long I let it sit, a few seconds or hours, when I...

The last time before I filled it up, I tried to ride it out as long as I could and it did something weird. The "Low Fuel" light went on and the meter was nearly on...
  11. 2006 Mustang GT Rebuit Tranny Lowered Gas Mileage

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Is this possible? It seems like I can literally see my gas gauge going down. I've noticed that previously, my car shifted out of 1st at around 20mph, then if I jumped on it around 30-40 it had some amazing pull/torque/acceleration, almost scarey and then, there was always a "cruise" to it, on...

    4.6L Talk
    I have about 110k miles and full bolt ons. Never got around to tuning it. I figured I would get a dyno tune just to see some before and afters. But I know they go full throttle. And I am wary that something may go wrong on the dyno. I have an insanely clean engine, with regular fluid changes...
