Customer Question
Had the oil changed...

Had the oil changed and now it says low oil pressure and shuts engine off. Got stranded on interstate

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?

II

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

I never changed it but bought it used 2011 ford edge 3.5 liter. No engine light comes on

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

Just put a new oil filter on it thinking it may be plugged. Did notice that the place that changed the oil had silicone on oil plug.

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

Any suggestions.

ok, silicone on the plug is not good. some repairs may have been done and the tech used too much sealer. this sealer gets down in the pan and may have clogged up the oil pick up screen in the pan.

you should have the pan dropped and inspected to see if the screen is blocked. if it is, it will not supply oil to he motor and damage can result.

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.
