Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Some of the informaion you provided is a bit confusing. You say you replaced the key cylinder at first then you say you replaced the head gaskets. Which is it?

Also when asked if you are going to fix it yourself you say its done. Do you still need help or no?

Ok, A little back ground on this truck should help. Owned it since new. Known it required head gaskets for approximately 1 year because when placed under load compression would fail & overheat engine, but would run fine when driving in normal conditions. It was stolen last June and taken on a joy ride and abandoned. I recovered the truck and parked it until last month and then decided to tear down engine to replace head gaskets and fix damage done when stolen. had to replace ignition cylinder due to how they started it when it was stolen. Everything seems to work except when key is fully turned to start position, it won't crank over.

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
