Are you okay with doing some electrical pinpoint tests?

Can you look over these steps to see if you can do them?

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

I have already done that test and it leads me to replace the motor
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

If you have the same result after doing the diag and repair that means the motor installed was no good or the steps were not done correctly. Can you redo the tests and let me know the results.

You didn't supply all the testing material for the switch so I wouldn't blame the motor again right away.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

What tests are you needing? A1-2-3-4 do not link to doing any other tests.

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.
