Customer Question
My 2006 freestar turned...

My 2006 freestar turned then died, now cluster has power but just a click, tried boosting and nothing.. the engine compartment got snow from our last blizzard but it had started and I let in run to melt the snow then used a compressor for the moisture

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

Tried to start the truck.. it turned a few times then died, now just a click at ignition, will not turn

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
