Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 f250 superduty 6.0 turbodiesel I sat driving on the highway and all of a sudden heard like a chain slipping sound and lost lost all gears can put the truck in every gear including the 4x4 and it just revs I have no lights on the dash indicating any problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Yes all the lights work and all fuses are good

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

I would like to do it myself I just don’t know we’re to start

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

That’s all I know so far

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.
