IS THIS A COMON PROBLEM WITH THE 5.3 MOTOR I CHANGER OIL 3,000 FAITHFULLY
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

I am not set up for phone calls at this time. However, it is more common for the oil pressure sensor to be bad and not reading the correct pressure of the oil.

.

If you give me your email address, I can get the instructions for it and put it in a PDF file, (it is rather large) and send it to your email address for as little as possible.

.

You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it, Thanks

Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

Actually the phone call is $18 more and you shouldn't post your personal info on here.

RECEIVED NO RESPONSE VERRY POOR SERVICE RATE 2 STARS SERVICE
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

No, see you did receive a response and you never let us know what you wanted to do. You can't rate me because I never sent an actual answer, (thank God). Do you want to get your vehicle fixed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that is why you got such low rating because no answer their should be no charge verry poor desponce
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

It would be pretty hard to just give an "answer" without knowing what A. what the code is and B. what was done, (besides an oil change) thus far to the vehicle, in an attempt to rectify it. Thanks
