Customer Question
I have a 95...

I have a 95 f150 with 5.8 rwd the cruise control will only work once in a blur moon

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse? What size is your engine?

Well it wasnt workin at all but i changed the deal by the brake master cyclinder and now it only work very rarely i have a 5.8

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

That is the only thing i have done now that im not working anymore i have time to figure it out but im kinda lost on the route to go

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

      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.
