1996 ford explorer. drove it...
1996 ford explorer. drove it off a 20 foot embankment. Ran ok after. Had the ball joints replaced ball joints, and fixed the fog lights. Then, when the car was brought to me, as soon as I started it, I saw that it wasn't getting gas, though the tank is half full.

Eric, do you have an answer?
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago
I have something for you to check. There is a fuel cut off switch on the passenger side on the inside. There is a button you can push down to reset it in case it got tripped in the accident.

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.
