Car coolant temperature gage...

Car coolant temperature gage stuck on high and vehicle will start and run but when put in gear will not move

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

2013 ford fusion

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

Not planning on it.. just want to get it back home or on a trailor to a dealer

Most of the time that problem is caused by the cylinder head temperature sensor. The vehicle does not love because it goes into a failsafe mode.

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.
