Customer Question
It just wont start...

It just wont start, I turn it over and the lights come on but nothing happens. it doesnt click or anything. Ive replaced a few things already and i cant figure it out. Could it be a relay fuse?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

There is over 150 thousand miles but it has been starting normally except for the last few times when i started it it would make like a winding sounds but it started.

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

1997 ford expedition

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

Ive replace the cylanoid ( i know spelling is wrong) and two relays

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!

Have you checked voltage at both starter wires while someone tries to start?

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.
