Customer Question
A few things actually...

A few things actually, 1. dash gauges indicate it's running hot when it's not. 2. front ac doesn't blow at all and rear ac runs but doesn't get cold .

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you noticed any leaking?

Coolant is fine and no leaks from what I can tell.

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

E350 2003

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its a modified side loading wheelchair van with electric lift & emergency caution lights on outside so it has several extras added. well I've already spent over 2k on trusting shops to fix it and its still not fixed. they had to order a customized hose to fix the ac I was told but it didn't fix it.

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

Please help

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Did they ever check or test the engine coolant temp sensor at all?

Did the ac issue start to occur the same time the false over heat issue occurred?

Let me know,thanks Pete

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 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.
