2001 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.

I have had my V6 stang for 4 1/2 years. I bought it used and have had to replace the alternator and the engine just went out. It has 104k miles, but I think the engine problem was my fault for not keeping up with maintenance. I love the car and am going to fix it.
