Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Ford technician and would be happy to assist you with this.

So I am thinking we may have an EGR cooler issue, if the cooler fails it will display the symptoms you have described. Can you go and check the oil to make sure there is no coolant on the dipstick? I want to make sure the cylinders aren't contaminated and blowing white smoke

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.

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
