the steering is tighting because the belt that gives movement to the oil pump of the hydravlic steering system is dragging and it doesent give all the rpm that the oil pump needs to work well.try to tight the belt or check for oil on the belt.

AnswerSounds like a bad power steering pump or another driven accessory like the alternator may be locking up and causing the belt to squeal and not turn at the needed speed. Chances are the crappy idler pully bearing might be failing since the stock one likely came out of a cerial box or a Yugo parts fire sale. Answeralso check the Smog Pump they are known to fail Located passenger side lowest Pulley on outside.

it can be done but is not easy. must install a man trans run linkage from steering column to floor and install stick shift.

It takes about 2.5 quarts of Mercon Automatic Transmission fluid, then turn the steering left and right to work it all through the system. Check again when hot.

ATF - made especially for Ford trannys Use Type F in 60's era automatic transmissions. The power steering system uses the same stuff BTW.

You can fit a manual transmission into an automatic Ford Mustang as long as you have the same engine but you will have to change a lot of things. Depending on the year, you would have to change things like the computer, wiring , steering column to add the clutch, etc. It would be better to buy one that's a 5 speed already.

The main difference will be the length of the steering columns themselves. The one from the 1995 will be longer I believe.

I believe that was an ( A4LD ) automatic transmission with the 4 cylinder engine on a 1989 Ford Mustang

The Mustang GT (2011 model) has a 6-speed manual transmission standard and a 6-speed automatic transmission optional. The 2010 Mustang GT had a 5-speed manual transmission standard and a 5-speed automatic transmission optional.
