Re: 2000 Mustang GT Engine Knocking noise

I have much the same sounding noise in my '00 stang GT. In my case I believe its the pilot bearing. It can be seperated from a bad trans input shaft bearing by parking the car, in gear, clutch disengaged, raise rpms and snap throttle shut. The noise appears as rpms decrease thru a certain range. Since its in gear the input shaft is not turning therefor can't be the input shaft bearing. Literally the input shaft nose is flopping around inside the crank.
Haven't pulled the trans yet, I'm going to park it for the rest of the winter.
