Customer Question
Have 2008 MKX and...

Have 2008 MKX and it smoke was coming out from under hood. Green fluid was dripping some from ac hose. Recently I noticed heat coming out better on 1 side of the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

It looked ok but I could check closer later

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

Just happened as I was pulling into work

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 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
