I have a consistent sound when I start and drive my Ford Mustang 2003 convertible. I had the belt replaced, but it didn't fix the problem. I was told at a dealership that the cause of the sound is Exhaust manifolds & synchronizer & sensor. I was quoted $1800 for fixing.
The question I have is how long I can drive with above problems (if that is the cause of the sound) and can I get the job done for cheaper somewhere else

Re: Exhaust Manifolds and Synchronizer & Sensor
You can drive the car nearly forever with these noise concerns, the trans noise which is the synchronizer ring may cause an issue in the long run, I have no clue what sensor they are talking about, but sensors don't make any noise, they are electronic parts.

According to the service literature I read, the 2003 Montero Sport with the 3.0 or 3.5 L engine does not have O2 sensors listed even in the maintenance schedule. The 2.4 L engine has it on the exhaust manifold though. --- However, the following lists the par, though for before or after the catalytic converter:
--- I think that $250 to $300 is reasonable if the Oxygen sensors are stuck in there with rust and the threads are preserved by the technician. Oxygen Sensor replacement can be tricky. --- Good luck on this repair.
2 O2 sensors and 2 catalytic converter efficiency monitors, they look like O2 sensors but are not, they are after the cat converters, the O2's are before the cat converters in the exhaust pipe of the engine exhaust manifolds
I would bet that there is a pully on one of the accessories that is about to stop turning. I would remove the belt and make sure that all of the acc. turn with out to much effort. I.E. altnator the tenstioner, as well as the a/c and idler pullys.
