Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 F250 6.0 starts fine will throttle in park and neutral but when I put it in gear it will not throttle at all

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

The transmission is original the truck only has a hundred twenty thousand miles on it it's been sitting for 4 years

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to fix it myself changed out the throttle pedal that's about it so far

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

No that's about it

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.
