My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

Your vehicle is in limp mode from the overheating. If it is driveable, go to autozone and have the codes pulled and reset so the vehicle will come out of limp mode and be driveable again.

Why did it overheat? If that isn;t corrected, it will put the vehicle back into limp mode. Examples are if the fan is bad, it will limp mode the engine until the fan is replaced. That mey not be why it overheated, but that is an example of what will keep the vehicle in limp mode.


You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see, touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.
