Customer Question
Went to start my...

Went to start my van today. It would turn over but not start. When I turned it off and took out the key it kept trying to start. I have recharged the battery. Now when I turn the key there is nothing happening, not even lights on the dash

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

They all seem to be fine. The van won't even turn over

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

Its a 03 2.4 litre back wheel drive

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

Don't want to fix myself. But having trouble getting mechanic until next week at earliest

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

As far as I can see with the van not stopping trying to start in burnt out the starter. I have one of them and know his to change this

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.
