Customer Question
I have a 95...

I have a 95 Ford Bronco. the override light start flashing and then the engine will rev up and the truck has trouble changing gears. there is no pattern as to when this will occur. Help

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

The light on the end of the shifter. it will usually continue to blink

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

Iam not fixing the truck myself. the problem has not appeared when the guys at the shop have driven the truck.

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

I cannot think of anything

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.
