Customer Question
I have a 99...

I have a 99 f-350 that sometimes driving it will miss and sometimes it dies. the check engine light will come on but it doesn't put a code in the computer. It will sometimes go for a couple of weeks to a month without doing it. Mechanic drove it for a week with the reader hooked up and it never showed anything.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It stays on until it starts back up. it may only flash but it doesn't stay on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

We have changed 2 relays. the mechanic says he can find it by changing parts put it would be expensive just guess and checking until we find

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
