Customer Question
I have a mercury...

I have a mercury milan 2010 and it's saying service power steering and service advantrac. Everything was fine but when i started driving it got sluggish then those words popped up and when i got back in the drive way it smeels like burnt rubber

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

Well it's time for an oil change and no

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

The car never had a tune up its 7 years old so what should i do?

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

No I'm not

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Sounds like you have a power steering pump locking up, are you fixing this your self or taking it to a shop?

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.
