It only click hen...

It only click hen turning key forward

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

It is a 1990 F350 truck. Recently I go outside to start it drags when starting, so I took the older battery out & purchased a new one the clerk said it was the battery. It was sarting find for a few days then it starting dragging when trying to start it until today I cut it off, but it would not start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Someone pulled me to kick start which it did since I have a manual transmission.

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

That is it

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.
