Customer Question
I had the battery...

I had the battery tremmales off

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Sorry I didn't erase the question right. Removed the thermals and cleaned them; when I reconnected them.this on my ford 350 v10,the volt meter and oil pressure gauges reads negative whinthe engine is running.?

Mechanic's Assistant: What confuses you?

How do I correct this.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your F350?

1997 43000 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Talked to the local ford dealership the said try disconnect batted see if the computer resets itself.

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

I did wash the engined down with a cleaner.no high pressure.

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.

Are you sure I got the correct info. 1997 F350 v10 with 43,000 miles?

I ask because Ford did not offer the 6.8 V10 in 97.

Running, what is the battery voltage showing using a volt meter?

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.

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.
