Looking for Trusted Mechanic/Shop for EGR/OC Replacement

I own a 2003 Excursion with 110,00 miles. Besides the normal parts that wear out the only engine related part that has been replaced was one fuel injector and that was covered under warranty. I have religiously changed the oil, tranny fluid and coolant at the specified intervals and until recently I have not had any problems with the truck until about two months ago when the coolant level dropped. I am now topping off the the reservoir every 1000 miles or so. Thanks to this site, I am well aware of the problems associated with the oil and egr coolers. I would like to replace these parts using Ford OEM parts as the truck is used for very light duty, i.e., no towing, and the Bullett aftermarket parts are just too expensive (I've got three kids in college). I have watched some of the repair videos on You Tube but I don't have the tools, facilities or mechanical skills to get this done on my own. I would like to take the truck to a trusted mechanic or shop in the California Bay area that really knows these trucks. I would appreciate any suggestions. I live in the east bay in San Ramon.

Many thanks,

Bob T
