Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. The next step is to pressure check the cooling system using a cooling system pressure checker.

Ford Mechanic: AMEDEE, FORD TECHNICIAN replied 2 years ago

Now if the leak is hard to see, you will need to use a small mirror to locate the leak while the system is under pressure.

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
