Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Can You Please Explain a Little More On Mechanical Issues? (12/29/20 12:19 PM)
A: It would be best for you to come and personally check it over. We did not bring the car in for repairs so we truly don't know what the issues are. Department stopped using it due to the amount of oil it was using. (12/29/20 12:38 PM)
Q: do you know what kind of mechanical issues, does it start and drive? any warning lights on? thanks, (12/29/20 12:40 PM)
A: It will start and it will drive. it uses oil, it does have check engine light on but we never have went and read the codes. You are welcome to test drive it and take it for code reading. (12/29/20 12:43 PM)
Q: Is it burning oil or leaking oil? (1/4/21 12:03 AM)
A: burning, we have not seen any leaks (1/5/21 10:02 AM)
Q: Good Morning can you please tell me if the Explorer smokes when you first start it up ? I noticed the drivers seat has a cover on it. Is it bad or is it on there for protection ? When is the best time to come and take a look ? Thanks (1/6/21 11:40 AM)
A: I have not notice any smoke when starting it up. The driver seat does have a tear where the stitching is. You can make an appointment to see it by calling 270-265-9879 and asking for Megan. (1/6/21 12:52 PM)
Q: do you know how often oil had to be put in the motor . example every 100 miles , every 500 miles , every 1000 miles . every 1500 miles , every 2000 miles . this answer will tell everyone just how bad it burns oil . (1/8/21 8:08 PM)
A: When our officer was driving it he would had to add a 1/2 qt every 100 Miles, we took it off the road and used it for code enforcement which was not being drove at high rate of speeds and being pushed. Driving around town and not flooring it has slowed down the need to add oil. (1/17/21 5:18 PM)
Q: Does it run well enough to drive it on to a trailer? (1/16/21 9:48 PM)
A: Yes, ir runs well enough to make a few laps through town! (1/17/21 5:11 PM)
