Customer Question
My vehicle is reading...

My vehicle is reading service power steering now.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

It's electrical power. And at one point I believe I did hear something.

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

2012 ford fusion 2.5L

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

I've only tried putting air in my low pressure tire.

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

It also says service advance trac.

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.
