Hello, my name is Michael. I will be assisting you today. Give me a moment to review your information and get right with you. If you have your VIN please send it to me.

Did this begin after work was done on the cooling system? Has your coolant been low?

before and about 5weeks after coolant level good when cold didn't look yet when running doesn't overheat to much just enough for the fan to kick on
Ford Mechanic: Michael, Ford Senior Master Technician replied 4 months ago

I highly doubt you have an air pocket. I've never seen an F-150 with the 5.0L engine get one of those.

Do you have the ability to control temperature differently between the driver and passenger or just single temperature control?

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 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.
