Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started.

I assume the repair was due to the prior sensor reading incorrect?

Is it right now a crank no start concern?

What liter engine?

I travel 200 miles a day to work,mostly highway . On the last 10 miles on journey home the oil pressure gauge dropped and the van started running rough and died....I called my wife and waited about ten minutes and it started up, full oil pressure and ran great for about 7 miles and did the same again while I was waiting for a turn light.Then I managed to start it again and made the turn and it died again. So I went with the cheapest option and changed the sensor. I let run for 10 min ,went and got changed and drove it to home Depot ,where I let it idle for about 10 minutes and then she died
