JA: It's only $5. An oil leak can be frustrating and tough to diagnose. Fortunately, the mechanics we work with have tons of experience dealing with them. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes I have had experience , have shop striped 02 down to frame motor and trans still in frame Worked as diesel field mechanic on heavy equipment and hobby at restoring Willys jeep trucks, Now I'm 67 yrs old but some times have help in training.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I tried buying 4 different trucks and plan to sell spare parts , experienced paint and body , engine overhauls frame up rebuilds & do most maintance on personal vehicles.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?
Customer: Am I crazy?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
