Default Diesel repair shop search in the northern metroplex area..

My 7.3l is starting to leak oil again on the top of the valley and dripping off the backside. More so than I am comfortable with now. After years of working on it myself, I'm getting too old and fat to be climbing on top of and on the backside of the motor to work on the dang thing so I am looking for a reputable diesel shop to get it done. I'm pretty sure its the turbo pedestal orings leaking as the HPOP looks clean. And that is way on the back. Anybody have a shop up here in North Texas they use for diesels? I was directed to AA Auto and Diesel several years ago but didn't end up using them and did it myself.

I'm in the Denton area but would be willing to drive some for a reputable place. Anybody other than Bill Utter Ford please and would be prefer a non-dealership unless its a TBHer I'm dealing with.....

Another vote for Dieseldynamics.

I trusted them to work on our Fire trucks. Never had any returns for same problem.


I will say this, they charge dealer shop rates, BUT, they wonít try to upsell crap you donít need.
