Customer Question
I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus. I've put a new battery, starter, alternator, spark plugs and wires. And the car still doesn't turn on

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

I had my friend turn the key while I looked at the engine and it looked like the crankshaft pulley does not want to turn at all.. Would that be the problem?

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.
