Perhaps the most significant issue with the Mustang so far has been its leaks. This problem has been so rampant that it appears to be everywhere – under the hood, in the cabin, and of course, under the car.
Cabin leaks are usually due to substandard fishing on the insulation around the windowpane, door, and possibly the overhead. In many cases, it can be solved by realigning angels or changing the insulation.
As for the leaks under the bonnet, this could be due to hot oil leaking from transmission tubes. Some owners have also complained about leaks in water coolant systems that could hamper the PowerTrain on a running vehicle. By changing tubing systems and their joints, we will be able to take care of these leaks once and for all.
Rigid Steering & Suspension
Another major problem with the Mustang appears to be weird sounds in the steering and a rigid suspension system.
Most times, you feel the symptoms of this when you’re making a hard corner turn. The steering is in a full rotation angle, and you will most likely be able to hear the sound as you shift. Sounds are usually generated around the outer tie rod ends, where materials tend to wear off.
While this isn’t uncommon, it can also be frustrating. Squeaking sounds are usually an indicator that the tie rods in the steering system are bad, but they also could be indicative of an issue elsewhere.
Some experts recommend simple lubrication as a possible solution for this, but it doesn’t always address the problem. To wit, be sure to bring your Mustang in and let us have a good look at it.
Consistent electrical inconsistencies are especially rampant among the first and second generations of mustangs. But, they’re not unique to those vehicle models alone.
In most cases, owners complain about irregular performances with performance gauges. They might not work, or they could provide the wrong information. Other electrical issues noticed by owners include irregular battery drainage, dull headlights, short-circuiting, or the car not even starting.
Most times, the solution to this is to replace the gauge motor. However, we recommend bringing your car in so we know if the problem is more extensive. Whatever the issue is, we’ll be able to get it fixed.
Mustangs and engine failures are quite common. Even if your engine doesn’t entirely fail, there’s a probability that you could have seen other irregularities concerning the PowerTrain.
Whether it’s a dead engine or a sparking one, there are different issues that can go wrong with your Mustang’s engine. Interestingly, you might not even be able to diagnose many of these issues until you take the car for a test drive or use it for a while.
This is why we recommend bringing your Mustang in for a check-up – even as soon as you get it. We can diagnose the engine and see if there are any issues that need to be addressed.
