2000 Ford Mustang Problems

If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.

It is not uncommon for the intake manifold and/or valve cover gaskets to develop a coolant or oil leak. Leakage from the intake manifold may result in coolant in the engine oil. Coolant mixing with the engine oil severally impacts the lubrication ability of the oil. Internal engine may result if this condition is not repaired promptly.

A creak/pop noise while turning may mean that updated steering rack bushing tubes need to be installed.
