Well I can tell you this , a friend of mine had 1 that had 386,00 miles on it before the head gasket blow . I told her it would be worth it to replace the head gasket with that many miles on it . She had the car since it was new ,and never had to replace it . I told her to buy a used motor and ill put it in. She did , and has been driving on that motor fore over 2 years and still doesnt have any major problems with it. Im not really a ford person , even though I got a 1999 mustang gt , but the 6 cycle motors are built very good . I would say if the car is in very good shape, doesnt smoke at all , and good price I would jump on it!!
#44 of 130 My mustang misses
Apr 09, 2008 (7:12 pm)
I have an 05 Mustang which runned perfect until it got ran over a hill. The car sit on it's side for approximately 14 hours before towing. Since then, it misses bad and hesitates when accelerating. I changed the spark plugs which helped for about a day, then it started right back. Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?

My brother had this problem and i was the Fuel Pump that was bad. He's no mechanic so I'm thinking it was an internal (in the tank) filter to the pump that had gotten clogged.....but I also experienced this with my girlfriends Saturn. It kept stalling on my when I was idling but no other time. I changed the fuel pressure regulator, which I could tell it was totally messed up, but then I had to go back and change spark plugs because the old regulator was allowing to much fuel and fuel-fouled my plugs. Works great now!
#48 of 130 Dealer Greed Nixes Deal (what else is new?)
Jun 04, 2008 (10:30 pm)
Now that my warranty is almost up, would have traded in my perfectly cherry 05 GT Premium (16k miles) for an 08, if the dealer hadn't low balled trade-in value $5,000 below Blue Book. Ford is closing plants and this moron won't deal? Screw it: Instead, got Ford Extended Service Plan for another 2 years. Will wait for the 09 or 10 Mustang, for expected redesign/upgrades (500 HP rumored).

Blue Book means nothing - it depends on what the dealer thinks he can get for the vehicle at that particular time in that particular market. Maybe the used car market is already saturated with mustangs. Why didn't you get a quote from another dealer for comparison? If all the dealers were quoting $5K under blue book then blue book is simply wrong. If other dealers offered you blue book with the same vehicle price then yes, perhaps that dealer was taking you for a ride. But I imagine the market for V8 mustangs is a lot smaller than it was a year ago.

Checked local car ads and ebay. Dealer offered around $9,000 below open market value. Differences between '05 and '08 models are minimal, certainly not worth, to me, $15,000-$18,000. I was willing to chip in a max of $10,000 for a new model.

So sell it yourself if they're going for so much more in the open market.
#52 of 130 2003 Mustang GT air conditioning problem
Jun 11, 2008 (11:35 am)
The air conditioner on my 2003 GT is barely blowing cold air. At idle the ac compressor clutch seems to continually cycle in & out. The engine rpm's increase & decrease as this is happening. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Any ideas on how to correct the problem.
Thanks in advance
