That's the way mine looked, except that I had many small cracks in the rubber around the circumference. I would have never condemned it, because I couldn't see where anything had moved. I do recall...

I didn't line up the timing marks to check to see if the HB moved. I looked very closely at the rubber insulator and I could see small cracks and the rubber appeared to be dry rotted. I figured it...

What you are describing sounds exactly like the harmonic balancer has shifted. You can't tell by looking at it, but it sure throws the engine out of balance. It will rattle the car at different...

Welcome! I did exactly what you just did. I bought my son a 2000 Mustang V6 w/5spd 5 years ago. I have been playing with it ever since. I've been through many of the problems with it (minor...

If you've got a wiring diagram, you can check for fuel pump power in a couple of places. I would go to the harness going to the top of the tank (rather than the inertia switch). I believe you can...

I agree, that bracket made the simple water pump job a PITA. I pulled the whole PS / Alt cradle bracket off once the PS pulley wouldn't budge - added time to the job. It does sound like someone...

I'll try to provide some direction here. First off, I am not sure if the 2001 Mustang has the electronic return-less fuel system, meaning there is no return fuel line to the tank. The PCM controls...

It sounds like all systems are "go", except the car won't start. Did you replace the pump with the whole fuel module (pump, sending unit) or did you just wire in a new pump. I spent an hour...

I replaced mine a few months back. The motor has 2 wires going to it - I believe the switch supplies 12v to 1 wire for up and the other wire for down. Since the vehicle is 15 years old, sounds like...

Yes, the inner diameter will separate from the outer diameter (it is one piece) when they get old and dry rotted. I had to drop the tank to get it in properly. I couldn't get the filler neck at a...

I'm with DaeHawk above, sounds just like the rubber grommet is torn. Removing the tank to replace the pump puts the filler neck connection at steep angles which tends to ruin the old dried out...

I replaced all mounts last year. Due to their age, the rubber gets all dry rotted and brittle. When one fails its best to replace them all. That is an interesting point on checking TDC on the...

I'd try to turn the engine over by hand first. Starter and ring gear on flywheel may not be meshing properly - remote but easy and worth a try. Then start electric troubleshooting from there.
