My mustang CE is an automatic. I'm 99.99% sure it's not coming from the engine, transmission, or clutch.
I totally baby this car. I never peel out, accelerate, or brake too hard. The car is in pristine condition.
The weird thing is I only hear it on the freeway with the windows up because the wind drowns out the noise. It does the same thing whether my AC/Heater is on or off too.
As soon as I lower my speed to less than 40-50mph (when I hit traffic) the noise goes away. It's been making the noise even before spring time so I don't think weather is a factor.
I'm pretty sure that what ever this crackling noise is it's not hurting the car in any way as far as safety or performance.
It's just pretty damn annoying!
Thanks for your suggestions.
