Customer Question

It's my Son. He just phoned and said he was driving on the highway and suddenly he could no longer get it to drive. It has power and revs up. Yet no drive movement.
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: hmmm maybe a 2003 ? I'm unsure. Let me see if I can call him back
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No he is not mechanical. He is heading to vacation in Myrtle Beach and is literally on the side of the road 200 miles out. With the wife and two children
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: He said he thought he smelled something before it failed. The model is a 2003 Ford Taurus. He just had tires replaced and an oil change at Firestone yesterday. They reported no issues on belt checks. He also said he filled the gas tank about 20 minutes prior
JA: Have you ever changed a tire on this vehicle?
Customer: It's not my car so no
