Customer Question
I am having trouble...

I am having trouble with my differential. It is a 2004 Fort expedition. Will you help me

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

No, I mechanic is helping me but he does not speak english. I would like to chage the whole differential system. If I give you the vin number will you be able to help me?

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

Is it posible for me to send some pictures of the part in this chat?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I need to buy this and I cannot make mistakes about the part since I am taking the part outside the us and I wont be able to return it if it does not fit.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Can you help me buying it from you or from amazon? How much will it cost me the part and or your advice?
Ford Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 2 months ago

to get the whole assembly, you will need to find a used one, if buying new, you will need to order the carrier the ring gear, the side gears and the pinion gear and all the bearings, your best bet is find one used as an assembly,Tim

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
