Hi Cam, This is ***** *****...
Hi Cam,
This is ***** ***** from Alaska.
I know it has been a month since we last talked, but the customer FINALLY paid for a new catalytic converter and I got it installed yesterday.
Vehicle is now easier to start and kind of holds a rough idle with a little help.
The only 2 remaining codes at this time are P0121 and P0505 with some misfires.
I have photos of my most recent freeze frame data if u like.

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.
