2008 Ford Mustang Problems

Creak/pop noise when turning

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

Buzzing Type Noise From Upper Engine Area

4.0L V6 engines may develop a buzzing type noise from the upper engine area at about 1900 RPM, under light acceleration. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by loose ignition coil bracket bolts. Coil bracket bolts should be checked for the correct torque before further diagnoses is performed.

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.
