Customer Question

first it felt like transmission slipping - which likely did a bit. Now RPMs get really high, and i feel no shifting. I was limping it home, and put it in neutral to coast, and for kicks revved engine. Engine didn't run steady, but i would say loped voom voom voom voom with nothing between vooms. about the speed you can say that. No check engine light. someone stole my code reader, so I can't plug it in. It wasnt the most sophisticated, but did give some real time data. Also, the car drank a half tank of gas over about 90 miles. Been getting 20 miles per gallon. I did use a lower octane gas last refill, but I would expect knocking. There is no knocking.
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: There is NO check engine light. SO it doesnt stay on and it doesnt blink
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 1995 ford taurus 3.0 v6 sfi
JA: Are you fixing your Taurus yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: nothing watched a video online sating I should check throttle body
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: how much will the connection cost
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: I cant afford to pay some unlimited undisclosed amount. thanks anyway
