Customer Question
I have a 06...

I have a 06, E-350 Van A/C problem, Low side pressure 75 PSI, High side pressure 235 PSI, hi side needle flutters a bit, tube on expansion valve is the same temperature on both sides and we are set at 85 to 90° day with no AC

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It's been slowly getting worse, about a week ago I took it to Ford and had a AC line repaired in the back Cargo area that has been going downhill ever cents

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I know the basics about AC, but this one's got me stumped, and after getting hosed by Ford service for $750 I'm not taking it back, I will gladly try it myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Ford replace a blend door in the back cargo area AC, vacuum tested the front blend door dash mounted AC, found to be good, the AC compressors runs normal

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.
