Hi. What is the issue you are having? What is the symptom the vehicle has?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The vehicle has a vibration and cracking sound at the tail pipe. It will not accelerate like it has in the past.
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Probably just the spark plugs but you could have a coil failing as well. Have you had the plugs replaced yet? how many miles are on it?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Had new plugs and coils installed 2,000 miles ago and replaced the plugs again yesterday(Friday) and the truck is still
missing and vibrating. It does not run as it should. I was told that the coils are not bad, so I am stuck until I am able to take it to the Ford Dealer.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
That's OK, don't bother with the call.
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Have you had a check engine light on or flashing?

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.
