When accelerating at around 40+ MPH, my Mustang jerks and then levels back off at about 55 MPH. I put some fuel injector cleaner in about 30 miles back, but no change.

Stay out of the Genie in a bottle isle

There has never been a manufactures factory service
manual or owners manual that require ANY additives to
any vehicle system

There not necessary & DO NOT WORK

The car is over 10 years old

Have the spark plugs been changed every 3 years
Have you replaced ALL the ignition coils around 6 to 8 year
or when they have misfired or failed
The front Oxygen Sensor get replaced on ALL vehicles at 100,000
miles
Have you been on a road test with a professional scan tool to look at data,have to do that a couple times a year
Is the EGR System working
Do you have any Vacuum leaks

Could go on all night

Just have to work on it several times a year

Have you checked for codes not just Generic
but Enhanced?

Ring and pinion noise for sure,yes. Check for play right at the yoke where the drive shaft goes in.
I've seen a few fords where the pinion nut was loose and after re torquing they lasted another 100,000

Replace TPS (Throttle Positioning Sensor) It's a rheostat that controls throttle. After time and mileage it develops hot spots/wear in areas that get most use. In your case the 45-55 mph area of rheostat. Your description is spot on to symptom of bad TPS.

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.

That and also maybe a vacuum leak will cause the O/D to click in and out. turn the O/D off and see if it happens when you go into high if not then look at a vacuum issue
