Greetings,
I own a '00 GT Convertible.
I change my oil every 2k miles. (At the Dealership)
Currently, I have about 24k miles on it.

I have noticed in the past month that if I floor it to pass anyone, the engine makes this mid pitch whining noise for about 10 seconds, then dies down. It sounds like the engine is straining when it produces this noise.
It also happens in Park if I rev up the engine past 3k RPM.

My 'Stang is still under warranty and Ford is looking at it on Friday. Is there anything I can expect them to tell me?
Has this happened to any of you?

Thanks in advance for any advice and any personal stories relating to this problem.

Thanks,
StangVert00

Have you had someone else get in the car and rev it to 3K while the hood is open and listening for the noise? This would help isolate it to a particular area of the engine. If you haven't done this, it would be very helpful and could help Ford find the noise before taking it in. It could be coming from an accessary, the belt tensioner, belt, or something totally different.

You don't want to get the famous "no problem found" on your warrenty ticket when you get the car back. Good luck.

Thanks for the replies.
I never thought of the belt. Thanks for the hint.
I will check that before Ford gets a hold of it.
You may be correct about the "Green Light" message from Ford.
If they say that, then I will just have to reproduce the sound, at Warp Speed! :)

Thanks again.
