I'll BET you have window visors or rain guards!
Look at the bottom of them as you drive air will go between the door and the guards and make a very nice squealing noise.

I have a 66 mustang when i drive at 45 miles per hour, it makes a grinding noise and shakes. what can it be?


Could be a bad universal joint. I have a '65 Mustang, once when I installed the drive shaft, I put the rear u-joint into the axle slightly off-center. It would shake rather badly at about 45 MPH, but was mostly smooth above 50 or below 40. I thought it was a wheel balance problem, but it was just the driveshaft being slightly off-center.

Riding rough what do i change with these codes po171, po174, po300


171 and 174 are lean mixture codes, 300 is a random misfire (any cylinder). Check for a vacuum leak, listen for a hissing noise with engine idling.

I would recommend a body shop because they will for sure find any type of problem like this one..good luck..www.carfax.com

2003 Hundia Sante fe Altornator?


It is probably the alternator. I have had alternator's that were bad test good. If the alternator is not fully charging the battery than you will continue to have the issue. I think it is best to go ahead and change the alternator.

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour


Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.
