North Texas

I am looking for a good powerstroke mechanic near Sherman and Gainesville area. I moved down form Montana/Idaho last year and would like to find a great person who will help me and not take advantage of me.

also, send a message to tubular031, he lives near Sherman. I travel to Texoma several times a year but have no knowledge of mechanics. tubular has a new job so hes online less often.

if you like i can give him a call, or maybe he can help, what do you need to do with your truck?

I am looking at things I should do or need to do to my truck. I have all ready taken out the exhaust and air filter assembly. I want to get this thing to run forever.

if you mechanically enclined i say do it yourself. there are only two mechanics i trust and neither of them are diesel guys. if i dont have the tools then i prefer to show them hwo to fix it rather than take it to a diesel shop that will run codes and tell me i have injector issues!

stay on top of your oil changes, get a compression test as a baseline, fix all leaks, run clean fuel, get an oil analysis. thats what i would do. if your on your maintenance, then your golden, usually just minor things that just wear out from that point on.
