Hi, My name is Jay.

Since I am not with your vehicle I will have questions to properly diagnose your problem. Are you able to answer a few questions on tests of the system?

just give me an idea as to what is wrong
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
are you there
Ford Mechanic: Jaybird61, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 1 year ago
  1. Was the orifice clogged with debris?
  2. When you turn on a/c does compressor engage?
  3. What is the low pressure and high pressure readings?

I cannot just tell you what is wrong without knowing the reason the orifice was replaced. I am a master mechanic with over 30 years experience. I need more information to give you a diagnosis. If you cannot answer a few questions let me know?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

The other tech has opted out, would you like me to try?

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
