Please help!!!!

Ok so I love my mustang but it's been giving me so many problems I'm only 18 and put 7000$ into my car on parts alone. I just got a new motor installed in it and new clutch. The problems I'm having are the engine makes a whistle sound at 2000rpm and higher( no after market parts except sct tuner) .second problem I have is that when idling the car can't stay at around 800rpm it always almost shuts off and some times it does.and the last problem is that my clutch ticks till I put pressure on it. Please let me know if you think you no what these problems would be. Thanks

Kinda sounds like vacuum leak, for the first problem. About the tick, does it tick faster if u rev the engine a little bit faster than idle? I really don't know a lot about clutches so I'm going to try not to sound like an idiot lol. When you press the clutch pedal it separates a plate with springs on it from another one with some kind of brake material on it. So whatever your tick is, it seems to have to do with those plates spinning. I think you would have to look inside your clutch to really see what it is. Hopefully somebody will have a better answer for you there.

Try setting the base idle, and yes check for vacuum leaks, just give everything a good look over.

You can't do that manually on a car this new. Its all in the computer.

Re: Please help!!!!

that ticking noise might be an exhaust leak by your header(s)? maybe a gasket is on crooked and airs seeping through it and giving you the ticking, happened to me before

If you engage the clutch and the ticking stops then it's prob the throw out bearing which either is bad or not installed correctly You may need to set the timing on your newly installed engine which will correct the idle problem. Hope this helps some, good luck

Oh also there should be an adjustment for the clutch cable/linkage. Come to think of it, that might actually be the issue since you didn't have this problem before you did the work. So see if tightening it will help.
