  1. S197 Clunking/rattling sound when accelerating and turning right?

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Alright I have been chasing the cause of this noise since I got the car 5 years ago. The noise started showing up when I would be turning right with the car in 3rd gear at about 1800rpm. If I were to push the clutch in, the noise would go away. If I revved the engine to ~1800 rpm in neutral...

    2015+ 5.0 Tech
    Hey friends, I've noticed on occasion that during driving a sound will resonate from the manual shifter area, resembling an annoying, slightly high-pitched rattle. After researching it a bit, I found a few other posts elsewhere about said issue, and it was apparently related to the cheap...

    Hey gang - I've been floating around the forums but finally found a reason to actually post. My 2002 Mustang (~200k miles) recently started making a new sound and I was wondering if anyone had an idea what it could be.

  5. 2017 EcoBoost Premium Rattle From Day 1

    Mustang S550 General Discussion
    I know, I know... But it drives me nuts! No pun intended. This sounds like a plastic on plastic or plastic on metal rattle. At first I thought it was a loose tray in the center console, but it's not. It's on the passenger side of the cabin, but I cannot pinpoint it yet. Suggestions?

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hi, I'm new to AllFordMustangs. I have looked extensively, and found a lot on this topic, but nothing similar to my problem. It makes this noise pretty much all the time, at idle, or acceleration. Some other problems I've read about with this sound say that their sound goes away when the car...

  10. 2006 Mustang V6 Convertible rattle

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    2006 Mustang V6 Convertible has a loud rattling noise coming from underneath the car about where the shifter is. I don't know if it matters, but it is much louder and consistent when the air is on. I've heard it could be the heat shield for the exhaust or possibly the catalytic converter. Has...

  12. Passenger side rattle??

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    I have a 2007 v6 mustang convertible and the passenger side rattles something awful. I can't place it if its the window or the door or what. Also this same side has a space between the window and the convertible top weather stripping which allows for leaks. I pulled the stripping down a little...

    Hello all, Today, after changing the oil through Jiffy Lube, I began noticing a knock/rattle in the bottom of the engine that I haven't heard until its oil change. The first obvious thing I did was check to see if they actually put oil in it and a filter on it and its good and full. I recorded a...

    SVT Cobra Tech
    My right rear break squeaks unless I'm on the brakes. It's not a constant squeak its a "squeak squeak squeak squeak" type of squeak. If that makes sense... It speeds up with vehicle speed and slows when I slow down without touching the brakes. I'm going to take the wheel off and look around but...
  16. 2007 v6 Mustang Rattling under the car

    There is a rattle under my car when i accelerate at about 2,000rpm. Sometimes it seems like it happens when it shifts gears. Maybe it is my heat shield? It also could be my aftermarket dual exhaust i had installed. If anyone could give me advice on what else it may be ?

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    A while back I read some posts about a quick fix for the nasty separator plate rattle that was a TSB for 2005-2008 manual trans Mustangs. Has anybody successfully stopped the rattle without dropping the trans? I believe some guys backed out the bolts and shimmed the plate and it worked. If...
