Our "new" mustang has a strange whirring noise - similar to what you hear when a car goes a bit fast in reverse. The car drives great, shifts good (it's an auto), and seems fine. Being a newbie mustang owner, I thought I'd ask the experts here. Is this normal? It's not exactly annoying or anything but seems strange to me. The belt looks fine but I'm pushing 124k miles... Please tell me I'm just paranoid
Its always there, even when idling in park

Re: V6 whirring noise?

Power steering pump maybe? Does it only do the whirring sound when your turning?

you can take the belt off and start it and see if it makes the same noise to see if it's the power steering pump. fords are notorious for pump noise.

The mustangs do that. Between the motor itself and the powersteering it is something you should expect. Look qt all the YouTube videos of peoples exhaust, you will hear it on theirs too. Both of mine do it. Just part of the game.

taking the belt off..... aiy chee wawa... I wish I had that kind of car guy skill and knowledge... <sigh> but I don't. I can do just about anything except for under the hood stuff. Knowing me I'd blow something up and what would take someone else 10 minutes would take me 3 hours and cost a couple grand to "un do"

I really appreciate the info and advice... I'm betting that it's just a noisy pump.... I'll try to get a recording so the resident experts can chime in with their expertise.

Thanks all!!

Thanks for the info! Not so worried now... a noisy pump is livable... I'll just add it to the bucket list so I eventually get around to it in my order of priorities for my new project.

Thanks again!
