2003 Ford Mustang ProblemsCreak/pop noise when turning
A creak/pop noise while turning may mean that updated steering rack bushing tubes need to be installed.
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.

2003 Ford Mustang RecallsGas Pedal May Stick and Cause Unexpected Acceleration
On some Mustang Cobra models, the unique rear surface of the accelerator pedal may catch the cutout in the floor carpeting and not allow the engine to return to idle. This could cause longer stopping distances and/or unexpected, continued acceleration, which may lead to a crash. Dealers will install a shield over the cutout in the carpet behind the accelerator pedal. The recall began April 26, 2006. The Ford recall number is 06S43.
