Customer Question
I have and old...

I have and old 1986 Ford F-350 truck, that I have had a compete tune up done on it at a dealership. They did replace the computer also. When we first start the truck and try to take off, it misses badly. If we start it and let it warm up for 5- 10 minutes, then drive it, it runs great. Any ideas. We have replaced the computer twice..

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

A dealer ship did it. They tuned it up and replaced the computer

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

Not that I know

I would try replacing the engine coolant temperature sensor.

Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.
If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.

It looks like they are charging me twice, please adjust charges for only one question. I received one answer only. I will try your solution .
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I had already reported that other post as a duplicate so it was closed. You should get a refund on that deposit, if not contact customer service.

As far as this post goes, Don't forget to rate me well, so I get credit. If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
