Customer Question
I have a standard...

I have a standard ranger pick up truck and my shifter is not working, when it's not running seems to be ok but when I start the engine it won't shift.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle have a fuse that enables or disables the shifter?

I have to see it if there's one

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Ranger?

2004

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

After flips ones my engine won't start after I take the oil out I put new ones now it's running but it can't shift

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

When the shifter is not working, when engine is running what would be the problem?

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

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
