New mustang problems

My dad just got a 00 or an 01 Mustang v6 its got around 55k on it and He says there is a howling coming from the rear end do any of you know if this is normal or if there are any known problems with these cars? He also says when it starts up sounds like he has an exuast leak for a few moments till it is warm.

mine doesnt gears might be screwed up? are they stock gears? if not, then that could be the problem and i would recomend getting them swaped for a set of 4.10s and a detroit true trac if he can afford it

as for the exhaust leak are you sure thats what it is or could it be a lifter?

its more then likely that he has a wheel bearing going out, ask him the next time he's driving and its making the noise to swerve side to side slowy and listen for a change, basicaly what happends when u swerve side to side it loads and unloads wieght off the tires and a wheel bearing howl will not make noise if its unloaded, unless the bearing is realy bad

so if he swerves left and noise goes away it should be the left side wheel bearing, because when u swerve the body roll of the vehicle will take weight off the wheel and wheel bearing and the noise should go away

it is unlikely the carrier or pinion bearings are making the because of the low milage but i have seen dumber stuff happen
