1997 Ford Mustang GT ProblemsSqueaking noise while turning due to worn outer tie rod ends
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
Internal heater blower motor issues can cause a ticking noise from the heater blower when the fan is on. To correct this concern, replace the heater blower motor with a revised unit.
An internal transmission issue can cause a longer than normal shift from first to second gear, and it can feel harsh. Premature wear of the accumulator seal from scuffing of the accumulator case bore is the cause, and replacing the 1-2 accumulator spring, seal, and piston will correct this concern.

Manual transmission. Odometer works, but speedometer does not.
