Should I contact my ex-boyfriend for help with buying a car?

I’m looking to buy my first (used) car, but feeling kind of overwhelmed by the process. I don’t really have anyone in my life who is car-savvy. Is it a bad idea to ask my ex for advice or help?

My ex-boyfriend was quite knowledgeable about cars, and I'm considering contacting him to ask for his advice on car models or places to buy from.
We were together for over 8 years and broke up amicably 5 years ago; the last time we spoke to each other was almost two years ago. I have no idea what he’s up to these days.
My current boyfriend is wonderful, but he’s not a car guy like the ex was.
Would it be weird for me to contact my ex and ask him for help after all this time?
