Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Have you had a chance to have it scanned to see which codes are stored?

When will you reply
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 months ago

I write this on the 3rd. Have you had a chance to have it scanned to see which codes are stored?

You replied with. No not yet.. friday i have to take it in..

You then asked for a call and my reply was I cannot talk on the phone was because I had been to the dentist, numb and drooling.

I figured you planned to respond Friday once you knew the codes stored so I could provide you an answer rather than an educated guess.

Have you heard of this problem before, could it be throttle body..the vehicle shutters, then trys to accelerate
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 months ago

Yes, I have experienced, diagnosed, and resolved concerns like the ones you mentioned. In some cases a computer reflash was needed and in others, a concern with the throttle body was the issue. Another possible cause can be a converter clutch issue.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

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.
