Customer Question
Was doing some work...

Was doing some work on the radiator and didn’t hook back the Hood release from by the hood and accidentally closed it down.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you hear a thunk when you pull the lever?

It’s not connected at all from under the hood

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

2008 F 450 superduty automatic diesel

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

Me and my cousin. And I haven’t really tried anything yet

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

I live in the British Virgin Islands. But I just need to know is there anyway to get it to release so I can get the hood up.

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
