Customer Question
3.5 ford edge 2010...

3.5 ford edge 2010 was running good except for a miss narrowed it down to a coil tech was driving the car wound it really tight and it sounded like a chain rattle then died cranked just like it was out of time I pulled the motor out it has no bent valves im trying to figure if I jumped a couple of teeth on the gears

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Sounded just like a chain it just died tried to start it back but cranked very slow there was no chain broke the phasers gears seem worn to me I I have turned it over by hand countless times trying to aline the marked linls with the marks with no luckl

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

Yes I am I have ty

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