Customer Question

chrank but will not stay running
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Lincoln. The Lincoln Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: crank but will not stay running
JA: Fortunately, the mechanics here speak car like it's their native tongue. They're great at sussing out engine issues, and it would be my pleasure to put you in touch with the best one for the job. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: check fuel pressure and it was 40 lbs
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Lincoln Mechanic should know about your Lincoln?
Customer: no
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 Lincoln Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, let me see if I can help you, so the engine cranks over normally or just for a second and stops cranking? You said that when you turn the key to on the THEFT lamp comes on and stays on steady? You have 40 psi of fuel pressure, does it hold steady or come up and then bleed off? The vehicle ran fine before this issue, didnt have any warning lamps on? Have you run a diagnostic check for codes with a scan tool?
