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! This question is 30$ would you lie to continue?

What happened to my $5 deposit that the girl said this was going to cost me to start a conversation...that's what this conversation started at ...are you guys running some kind of a scam on me ... I was just looking for a couple of ideas that I could work, and $5 sounded great now we're up to 60 bucks I might as well take it to a mechanic so what gives thank

Well I sent you $28 via PayPal and every time you answer me it tells me want to switch to a lie phone call amount $26 and then it says call me so if I hit this button it's going to cost me another $26 to talk to you and then I'm not then let's do this verbally with text it don't have a lot of money I got laid off a month ago and it's not like the car is not drivable it runs great it's just vibrating at low idle I think I know what the problem is and I'm just looking for a little expert advice to backup my suspicions thank you

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.
