Hello: The truck seems...

Hello: The truck seems to be working fine, all gauges light up. One minute the truck was working and then the next I get nothing when I turn the key. Could this be a fuse?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

Yes, it's in park, It's an automatic. I have jiggled the shift handle and still nothing. I was driving it just fine. Ran some groceries into the house. Went back into the truck to head out again and bingo nothing happens. Just like that!

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

2008 F350 6.4 ltr diesel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to since it's a Sunday and most mechanics are closed today. How can I get a fuse schematic? Can't find my owners manual.

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

No Just needed this information so I can try to fix it.

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
