I hav 2006 Ford F-350 6.0lt. Turbo diesel I drove it the inspection state this morning to get the emissions test and get the sticker. While the guy was doing the test. He put something in the tail pipe to do the smoke test. He’s start the engine. He was idle the engine like over 4000 rpm. I was waiting him. Then he turn off the engine. After that it won’t start anymore. And the truck was running perfect before take it to inspection

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
