The truck is miss...

The truck is miss firing and I was trying to get the code to tell which ones were missing

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

OK the truck seems to miss fire when driving in overdrive. I am replacing the spark plugs and ignition coils which have been the problem in the past I bought the truck with 200,000 on it and the firing issue has been there since I bought it.

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.
