i just bought, a 1997 ford mustang (5 speed) from a dealer, only had it 3 days now. anyway, my 2nd day riding around in it i started to hear a buzzing in 2nd gear, it's become loader and is now doing it in 1st,3rd, and 5th. i'm really worried as i feel this may cause major damage to the car itself. I didn't hear the sounds when test driving, they even said they had placed the transmisson, and cluch. HELP

After locking the doors w/remote to set alarm with in 30 sec to a min the alarm goes off
I took my mustang into a local shop with the agreement of $1200 total for a motor swap and installation. Two months later the guy tells me he's got it running, which is good, but its now gonna cost $2000 due to a fuel pump and ECU. I know the ECU for my car is $230($150 after core). And a fuel pump is $100 give or take five or ten dollars. Which makes my total $1530.
MY TWO QUESTIONS ARE:
1. Did it even need these to things to begin with?
2. How much should the installtion charge be for each of these?
My check engine light has been on for a couple of months now but car runs OK, however, lately I have noticed that the temperature guage goes up to about the half way point when I am sitting in traffic & not moving. What does this mean?
