Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 ford f250 6.0 diesel. I put a new fuel pump on I and a fuel sending unit for the gas tank and it still wont get fuel to start, the fuel pump is pumping fuel up to the fuel filter on engine but it stops there, any ideas

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

I said i just put a new one on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes i am a mechanic had a shop for 30 years but this electrical stuff kills me i am the old fashioned mechanic lol

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
