Customer Question
The wrench light comes...

The wrench light comes on and the rpm goes up when I am under 60 mph

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

It look like a wrench, but the book calls it a powertrain I think

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '60 Ford?

2007 ford explorer

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

Nope, but I like to know what it so I don't get cheated at the shop

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

Not right now, thanks

Your wrench light come on when the computer system sees a system fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is causing this you need to start first with having the computer system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. Most auto parts store such as Auto Zone will do the scan for you at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with them I can help you with determining the cause.

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

No way to know the cost till we have some idea of what it failing, the code scan will tell us what we need to know to determine the cause as well as the cost.

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.
