John Mc :

Hi, I am John Mc, a Ford dealer technician.
I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.

John Mc :

What is wrong with the truck?

Customer:

hey John, hope you are having a better day.

John Mc :

Just sittin in bed watching tv and answering questions... the good life :)

Customer:

2000 f250 7.3 l .. 268000 mi manual transmission. Runs but lacks power, simptomatic of a plugged fuel filter or a bad lift pump so I have replaced both. Yesterday it slowly lost power over a 20 minute span and I was able to limp it home. However the work that I have done has not cleared the issue. It starts and idles semi rough but when I apply power it acts fuel starved and shakes really bad.

Customer:

Great way to make some extra cash

Customer:

I am worried that it is my high pressure pump

John Mc :

Don't think it is your hp pump. When these go bad they won't even start.

Customer:

ok I sort of figured that

Customer:

PCM?

John Mc :

Have you removed the fuel tank and checked if the pickup screen is blocked. I have seen several of these.

John Mc :

Doubt it is the pcm.

John Mc :

Does it run better hot or cold?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
