Customer Question
I have a 1991 f250...
I have a 1991 f250 4x4 with a five spd and a Borge Warner 1356 transfer case. I recently acquired a used transfer case to replace mine. It seemed fine after I put it in shifts in all ranges and seemed to work fine. After a couple miles in 4x4 high I notice a burning smell and it kicks outta 4 high and buzzes not quie in or out

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.
