Welcome to the site. My friend has a 98 gt as well and his squeaks too its loud and annoying. I checked all his pullies and the bearings in the idler pulley was bad so i got it replaced and the noise stopped. I wouldnt use wd-40 on my pulleys. Idk just my opinion. Hope this helps.

Welcome to the site. Is it coming from the engine compartment or under the car. If it's in the engine compartment it's more than likely a pulley. If it's coming from under the car check both your u joints to see if one of the caps is broke or dry.

Re: sqeaky noise

It may be your clutch chattering but when you start going your exhaust note drowns it out.

Re: sqeaky noise

Welcome to the site! You know I used to get paranoid if I heard something or it did something. One thing I've learned with Mustangs is they are rather simple cars. (I'm a former Chrysler owner.) I doubt it's anything major, but it would be a good idea to find out and fix it sooner rather than later.
