I think someone had messed with my ford to disable it. When he came around my truck started running badly and blows white smoke. I parked it and have heard people say he drives it on occasion. I think the power distribution box has been tampered with

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you been losing oil or coolant?

60,000

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '60 Ford?

2010 Ford f350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I’m not and I have had it diagnostic in which case they said it through a turbo code and exsaught overheat code. But I don’t trust their shop

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.
