    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.
