Customer Question
Check engine light went...

Check engine light went on in my 2005 ford freestyle, the code read "low pressure". my name is frank

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Just stays on

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

About two months ago, I had a new fuel pump put in, new gas filter, a new ignition coil, and a fuel rail sensor switch.

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

No. that's pretty much it.

no, my mechanic just told me low pressure. also, the gas gage is not working properly, and sometimes when I'm making a turn, the car feels like it wants to stall. could the fuel float be stuck in an awkward position?
Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 8 months ago

fuel float only controls the gauge. has no effect on the running of the car.

can you call your guy and ask him some questions???

1. what was the code

2. what is and was the fuel pressure prior to his repair.

3. was this the original issue???

no, the car was sputtering, and it was the ignition coil. I tried my mechanic, he's not in now.
Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 8 months ago

ok, so it was not stalling before.

I am concerned about the fuel pump. it needs to be the proper pressure for the engine to work correct. when codes set, they do not identify bad parts just failed systems. before replacing anything the part needs to be checked and confirmed failed before replacing it.

you need to have the pressure tested by either him or someone else to rule out his fuel pump.

is the check engine light still on or did it go off??

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.
