For my 2007 Ford Fusion...

Good afternoon,

That sure looks like a dead battery. Any idea how old it might be?

The battery is probably two years old, I guess it's probably deadish. I was worried about if the starter sounds bad or do you think it's the battery?

From the way the dash acted it seems like a bad battery to me. We have only been getting a couple of years out of the motorcraft batteries recently, and even some of the big name batteries aren't holding up like they used to.

I would probably pull the battery and have the parts store test it.

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.
