2003 Ford Mustang Problems

Squeaking 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.

Camshaft Sensor Magnet may Damage Synchronizers

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.

Noise From Synchronizer Shaft Upper Bushing

The synchronizer shaft for the camshaft position sensor can cause a loud squeak or chirping noise due to failure of the upper bushing. The noise may be erratic and is usually present when the engine is warm.

2003 Ford Mustang Recalls

Gas 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.
