Customer Question
2007 Ford Explorer (109K miles)...
2007 Ford Explorer (109K miles) has been a little tough to start (doesn't fire right away the it always had in the past) and is sluggish and some hesitation. Had Jiffy Lube change the oil about 1,500 miles ago. The change oil soon idiot light came on today. Is this a maybe Jiffy Lube screwed up something up issue or something more serious? Thanks.

Hello, my name is***** you for the question. This would not have anything to do with the oil change. Is the check engine light coming on when the vehicle is running? What size engine do you have?

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
