possible future problems? new noises
« on: December 30, 2008, 10:09:46 PM »
I bought a used mustang GT 06 a few months ago, and have been loving it.
It had about 16k on it, and was in great shape from what I could tell.  I had a mechanic take a look at it too, and it checked out alright.

The only thing i noticed was an annoying rattling noise that came from the passenger side.  It goes away after driving about 5-10 minutes, but i havent been able to pinpoint what it is.  Sounds like the console or something higher up.

Anyways, I had a problem starting my car for the first time after putting about 1500 on it myself.  Now when i start the car, it shakes a little more than it used to and has a quick pop noise.  It seems to run fine otherwise, but I was just wondering from experience if anyone else knows what sort of problems I should expect down the line?

I live in michigan and the weather has been shifting back and forth alot lately, so i figure maybe that's a factor?

thanks!

When's the last time you changed the fuel filter?? Sounds stupid, but if the fuel filter is clogged on these cars it can send the fuel pressure haywire.

I haven't personally since i just got it at 16.5, but i will look into it, thanks guys!

Would this also cause that interior-sounding rattling at all, or is that just probably some loose console/dash i'd need to look into?  The only reason it confuses me is because it goes away after 10 or so minutes.

Sounds like you have a naked woman in there trying to get out.  ;D Nah, I have no idea.  Apparently you have something loose that needs tightening to stop the rattle.  You need to get a buddy to ride with you to locate the exact area where the rattling is taking place and investigate further from there.
