Customer Question
Hi, I just bought...

Hi, I just bought a 2000 Expedition with all wheel drive and it doesn't disengage. It consequently hops and skips when turning at low speed. The previous owner says the shift motor on thye transfer case was changed.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Its the original. no leaking that I can see

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

I just got it yesterday, so nothing trid yet

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

No, the rest seems fine.

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.
