Ford Mustang Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Even though Ford Mustang is a very successful and popular pony car, problems and defects on it still start to show as the accumulation of mileage. According to the complaints collected from Mustang customers, we can summarize these two are the most common problems:
First, engine problems. Mustang drivers complained that their engines were suffering performance issues like decrease in fuel efficiency, power, acceleration and sometimes even difficulty starting. Engine stalling, misfiring or giving out noisy sounds are not rare. At the same time, engine would overheat or Check Engine Light kept on. Usually, engine went wrong is shortening your car's lifespan. So once you notice similar situations, you had better check your engine control module, intake manifold gasket, exhaust manifold gasket (if also smell burnt odor), oxygen sensor, timing belt and timing chain.
Second, transmission and braking problems. Transmission failure is usually caused by slippery clutch disc. As for braking problem, drivers found when the brake pedal was applied or let off, vibration and squealing noises would be produced at the same time. Moreover, brake pedal became pulsating and brakes responded poorly. Sometimes, score marks could be found on the rotor. As braking system is important for your safety, you should check the brake pads and brake disc if above symptoms happen.
