2000 Ford Mustang Problems
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.
The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.
the pins will pull out of the connector for the transceiver ring,the connector is under the dash right above where your shins are.the wires pull out due to tilting the steering wheel and not enough slack in the harness.

2000 Ford Mustang Reviews
have had to replace front tie rods inner and outter and ball joints, air conditioning trouble ... compressor will not come on, good on everything else
2000 Ford Mustang drives and handles well on dry roads, good on wet roads, has a little sway at higher speeds but still handles well has good response in body sway. Good gas mileage, quiet engine some road noise inside cabin on some roads but otherwise quiet and comfortable with good quality tires. Suspension is firm and steering is responsive. Heating and air conditioning work well air conditioning very cold. No electrical problems noted. Drive train has a slight vibration during quick stops. Interior is comfortable during long trips, driver side seat has electric adjustments while passenger side has only manual adjustments, seat belts are positioned too close to door and seat, difficult to retrieve from side of door and seat. interior is mostly plastic but feels sturdy. Bought this car used with 73,000 miles on it, it's been very reliable so far, only had the camshaft position sensor replaced recently and even with that problem the car ran beautifully no problems. I love this car and am slowly adding improvements such as high performance parts like K&N filters and synthetic oils will also add high performance spark plug wires and some chrome interior improvements, you can always rely on a Ford.
I bought my car with 15,000 miles on it in 2003, it is now over 200,000 miles in 2010. Throughout the years the starter went out, I replaced the rubber grommet to keep the fuel tank from leaking, Alternator replaced. Had a minor car accident that was professionally taken care of by Moore's Buick here in Jacksonville NC and regular routine maintenance but other than that it's a great car. I keep my car garaged everyday to slow the aging process from the outside elements. The car is regularly waxed and cleaned to keep it looking like new. Rain now sneaks in to my convertible behind the rear seat. I'm still trying to figure a good way to fix that. I also am trying to figure out how to fix my key remote without spending too much on it. I can't complain though the car is over 10 years old and it's still a very reliable car. I am planning to keep it awhile longer so that my son can enjoy it when he is on his own. It still looks like new and I still get plenty of comment on how great my car looks from friends and strangers.
Bought my with 10,000 miles on it in 2001, 170,000 now. Up to now, the fuel pump went out a couple of years ago but other than that it's been routine maintenance. I have had to replace the trunk mounted brake light a couple of times. Sunlight cracks them out really fast. I can't complain though it's been a very reliable car. In here today because I am changing the drivers side exhaust manifold.
Love the color also!!!
