Customer Question
When I stop in...

When I stop in traffic and step on the accelerator the care is revving but is hardly moving . Then the car will jerk ahead and the tracking light goes on and the wrench light will come on. I took it back to the dealer and he stated he could not find the problem. It still is having the same problem and now the engine light is on. It does not happen all the time maybe that is why they cannot find the problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No it has not stalled when I took it to the dealership he stated he used the computer and could not find a problem

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

2013

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

No as I stated I took it to the dealership. They told me they cannot find a problem

Good evening I hope you are doing great. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you with this.It sounds to me like we may have an intermittent sensor issue, most likely the transmission speed/input sensor. Since the check engine light is on that means there will now be a trouble code stored in the system and they will be able to use that for direction in the diagnosis of it. The wrench/traction lights will not save a code for diagnostics, but the check engine light will. I would suggest giving them a call and checking if they can re-scan it now

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.

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.

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.
