Ford Mustang GT Problems
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.
An internal transmission issue can cause a longer than normal shift from first to second gear, and it can feel harsh. Premature wear of the accumulator seal from scuffing of the accumulator case bore is the cause, and replacing the 1-2 accumulator spring, seal, and piston will correct this concern.
Our technicians tell us the spark plugs in this engine can be very difficult to remove. Ford has issued a service bulletin (08-7-6) to address this issue, which includes a recommended procedure on how to remove the plugs. Failure to follow the recommended procedure can result in the one or more spark plugs breaking off in the cylinder head.
The recommend procedure is as follows. Using this procedure will greatly reduce the chance of bre...
Internal heater blower motor issues can cause a ticking noise from the heater blower when the fan is on. To correct this concern, replace the heater blower motor with a revised unit.

Ford Mustang GT Reviews
I acquired a 1990 GT Convertible 5-speed, 25 year edition, in need of some TLC.
Work I had done> 1. Two front seats re-upholstered, New Ford Blue Convertible top, with new headliner. Front door panel map holders redone. After-market caster-camber plate and alignment. Transmission and differential service, and new headlight switch.
DIY work> Replaced all 6 shocks, new plugs, plug wires, rotor and distributor cap, flushed radiator, new thermostat, new radiator hoses, and AFE air filter.
Results: Reliable and fun to drive.
I own a 2002 GT that I purchased a few weeks ago. The car is beautiful but has a lot of problems that I am working out. I replaced all the pads, and rotors, had the engine and all fluids flushed, in process of replacing leaking pinion seal, replaced factory differential cover with new chrome cover. Car shakes when driving over 60, shakes really bad. Still trying to figure out why, and there is a humming like a wa wa wa wa while driving in 5th gear. Sound resonates throughout car seems like it is coming from the bak but maybe it is a bearing. Also the car bounces pretty bad when you hit a bump at anything over 35, again I think something related to the other problems. The car runs like it is straight off the show room floor with 69000 miles on it. The convertible motor works like brand new. I feel a little loss of power while shifting gears and pressing on gas hard. Engine looks brand new. I love this car, I just hope I can figure out what is causing my drive train/ Suspension issues. Also for the most part the car is very easy to work on as long as you don't have to change the spark plugs. I haven't been able to find them yet.
I bought a 2009 Ford Mustang GT Premium (45th Anniversay Edition) and it is a piece of crap. I spent over $1200 before could diagnose that the air conditioner relay was faulty. This relay killed my battery, my alternator, and one of the fuse boxes in the Fix Or Repair Daily. To make things better, Ford has not offered to compensate me for buying their worthless, made in America crap. By the way, I bought this car when I was deployed in Iraq in 2008.
transmission gets stuck in reverse when backing up a slight incline into my garage. if I can get it to roll forward a little bit it will come out of reverse. anyone else have this problem?
2011 Mustang GT/CS in Race Red. Have had the car for a year now. Only thing I have really had a problem with is cold shifting and the standard "skip shift." Car has more power than you can really use (legally) on the road and the manual transmission is great. Everything (a/c, stereo, heated seats, etc.) works the way it should. While in Michigan, car was actually quite capable in the snow due to the TCS.
