What would a reasonable...

What would a reasonable price for getting a 2008 Ford F250 repaired that has diesel fuel adulterated with water

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

It doesn't start at all

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

We need to get a mechanic to do this in College Station Texas

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

The vehicle has about 80,000 miles on it.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

I would say about 400$ give or take plus parts, depending on how much water there is you may need new filters and maybe even new injectors

I do prefer email). Thus the dealer offering a price of $10,000 is trying to take advantage?

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
