Heat shield rattle is usually more clangy than that. Could be the matrix inside the cat is failing? Doesn't sound like transmission noise to me.

YouTube has it, but they want you to pay for it. Here's the (free) abbreviated version: I was wrong about the truck, it's an F-250. Caliper clearly falls off at 3:14, dangling by the hose.

Someone actually stole my non-locking gas cap several months ago. I never buy aftermarket parts when Motorcraft parts are available. "Do it once and do it right." I went to the dealer and got a locking Motorcraft cap for $47.33. Part #7w7

I got it. There was another connector of the same style at the horn location, but not plugged into anything. I just took the connecter that was on the horn off, plugged this one in, and presto - I have a working horn. Thanks for the help. Greg

It was something different I remember. But I found it!! It looks like you need to add in a couple missing wires from the clock spring plug and that's it.

It sounds like you're having fun with it. You'll probably find over time that your idea of how you like the exhaust will change or you'll make other changes that you'll either grow out of or can't live without. These are great first cars. And I'm no
