  1. 4.6L Tech
    Hey guys, First post here and would appreciate all the help I can get. I have a 1998 4.6L V8 Mustang GT. It has all of the classic symptoms of a faulty cam shaft position sensor. In fact, that's also what the computer has coded as well. I have heard it is not a hard fix to replace the...
  2. 2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Just wanted to share my troubleshooting journey with everyone. I finally found a major cause of my drivetrain clunk and managed to reduce it to a barely perceivable level. TL;DR at the bottom. A little bit of history: the clunk started to manifest less than 6 months after the car was driven...

    hello, I want to rebuild the rear end on my 2000 V6. I was planning on getting an 8.8" LSD with 3.73 gears. It's easier to find these parts with 31 splines instead of the stock 28 I have. I also want new axles so i figured I might as well get everything with 31 splines. I know the my drive shaft...

So now i need to replace this piece but I'm not sure how to go about doing so. Can i replace just the balancer? or do i need to replace a whole section or...

    Alright, here goes. When I bought my car I took it to a mechanics and had it checked out, he said there were some rust on the rotors and that the chirping/squealing sound it made would go away after a few weeks. This is on my right-rear wheel. Now, two months later, it's still here, just worse...

    Hey guys! We were getting ready to start dropping the engine in and were looking at all the related parts when we noticed our drive shaft had a bend in it. So we looked around and found a '68 drive shaft which we were told could be interchangeable. However, the base of the shaft is different...

    This is a 1970 C4 in my 1966 Mustang 289. I decided it was time to drop my pan and check out why the PO had the outside of the kickdown lever zip tied to the neutral safety switch. When I cut the zip ties and removed the nut I found that the shaft would pull completely out of the case along...

    I have an 03 Mustang V6 base model and am having a slip issue that I'm not sure where it's coming from. Only during most turns, not all, I will slow down normally, make the turn, and about 75% into the turn, I will give it gas and the engine will just rev up and finally catch and lurch forward...

    Hey guys: The other day I had the issue of not installing the oil pump shaft when putting the oil pump on. After about a week of thinking, I made up a long hard handle and then what I did was I welded a large nut onto the end of it, just so it would support the oil pump shaft clip, what the...

    I went to install my oil pump driveshaft today. So i slide the shaft down the distributor hole until the little unbrella type guard hit the block, well realizing the oil pump driveshaft was almost to short and wouldnt go into the oil pump hole. It is a stock replacement oil pump. Do i need a...

    Hi guys, My front suspension has started to make this screatching noise. Interesting enough increasing after I drive for a while (and when the engine is warm, but I do not see the connection here). I have not been able to pump any grease in the the shaft nipples, Nipples seem to be stuck...

    Hey, I have 2 Mustangs with 2 different sets of rear axle dampers. The first Mustang is a 1990 2.3L lx and the second is a 1991 2.3L parts car. The 1990 has stock dampers that are black without any real markings while the 1991 has Gabriel "RED RYDER GAS" dampers. I'm just wondering if the...
