Hi. Have you checked the codes in the computer?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No not yet but also oil symbol came on at 1 point but not on no more
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok. There could be a lot of issues to cause this. Oil level should be checked, fuel filters should be replaced if it has been over 15000 miles. An exhaust temp sensor that has failed can cause this. The high pressure fuel pump is common to fail. Can you get the code checked?

I'll need to take it to a shop to do so n hook up fee is pricey itself
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

You could buy a code reader from walmart. Or most auto part stores will scan your codes for free.

232 and 264 or
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Codes are 4 digit numbers with a P, C, B, or U in front of the number.

A cheap code reader will be able to retreive them from the computer.

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
