What is "messed up" ? Is it noisy, have you taken anything apart yet? Are you using stock wheels, can I have a VIN # ?

The rear end has alot of play in it. When i start off it knocks while trying to turn until it catches. i just wanted to know if the rims did it. The stock rims are now back on.

Is this limited slip??? If you are not sure can I have a VIN # ? I will be back in about an hour to check...dinner break.

Yes. I will have to give the VIN to you later, sorry. Also, before the rear end catches it takes away from acceleration.
Ford Mechanic: EMRSR, Master Certified Service Manager replied 8 years ago
You describe a pretty typical issue...actually 2 different issues. Need the VIN # XXXXX I will be here all day Tuesday and everyday this week on and off.

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.

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.
