Customer Question
Turns over but will...

Turns over but will not start. We have replaced the batteries, oil sending unit, alternator. Made sure it has diesel. Twice now the truck has been running and hit a bump, then wouldn't start again. Last time it died, I towed him home which was harrowing to say the least. He has checked all the wires going to the trailer, found one with bare wires and fixed that. The computer isn't throwing any codes and when it was running had the volts needed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have a scan tool to read the codes?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2004 F250 6.0

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

See above

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

What does this service cost?

Mechanic's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Ford Mechanic. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

How much is the rest? We are retired. My husband just had another back surgery so funds are very limited.

It has been 30 minutes. Are you still looking for answers?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Dave took the positive cables off then took a test light from the positive cable to the positive post and it lite up. Does this mean there is a short somewhere? It has been over 50 minutes waiting for any answer from the mechanic. Is this normal wait time?

That is correct
Ford Mechanic: Ray M., Ford Master Tech replied 6 months ago

Do you know what the ICP(injection control pressure) is when cranking it over? I suspect a hig pressure oil leak or pump failure.

No I dont.
Ford Mechanic: Ray M., Ford Master Tech replied 6 months ago

If you could have that done it would eliminate a lot of causes for the no start condition.

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.

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.
