Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

What engine do you have?

Ask Your Own Ford Question

The purge valve allows fuel vapor from tank back into engine for emission purposes. This usually doesn't matter much as it is only emission related. If valve sticks open it can cause vehicle to start hard after filling tank. This is something you can easily do yourself otherwise will cost around $150-$200 to have done at a shop. If you give me your engine size I can show you a picture to help you locate, thanks.

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
