Customer Question
I'm having trouble finding...

I'm having trouble finding a part to fix the clutch. Mechanic told me on the firewall some rust has caused a problem as rod comes through. I'm not sure what that part is called he told me it a rebuild kit.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?

No problem with that

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

1991 ranger

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

Placed a new crank sensor and ignition module.

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.
