My name is ***** ***** and I have a ford F-150 ecoboost.

Customer Question
HI my name is...

HI my name is ***** ***** and I have a ford F-150 ecoboost.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I live in the Canadian Arctic and it is regularly -40 to -60. The truck is fine when it is running or plugged in (it has oil pan heater, block heater, battery blanket). Last night the plug came out and now it won't turn over. The battery is fine and its been plugged in all day, but it wont crank. Is there some kind of sequence involving the pedals to reset this and make it turn over?

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $28) to post your type of question to Ford Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

I might have to go, lets see how long it takes

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

There is no sequence with the pedals to reset the truck.

Are you sure the engine isn't frozen or the oil is so thick it won;t allow the engine to rotate? Temps that low you may have a frozen engine.

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.
