I am looking for a diesel mechanic

Does anyone know a good diesel mechanic in the Port St Lucie, FL 34953 area? I have been using my regular mechanic and he is just not cutting the mustard. He is a good mechanic but has yet to fix my truck correctly.
Thanks

I am an auto mechanic not diesel mechanic. I would really rather have a good mechanic to care for my truck. It has been running rough and I have a mechanic working on it now. He diagnosed it as a bad injector. He replaced 2 injectors, fuel pump and tank filters. It still continued to run rough. Then it was dumping fuel really bad. He replaced another injector. It ran ok for like a month then rough again especially in the AM. I drove it to NY from FL and on my way back south it started running really bad. Rough at low speeds then would clear up around 70 mph. Then when I got back in FL it just ran bad all the time. I had the glow plugs replaced. Then it would not run at all. He said another injector. So we put it in. It runs ok the rough. Back and forth good then rough. I am pulling my hair out. I am gonna have the rest of the injectors replaced and the harnesses. I am running out of money...lol
I need a good mechanic that will properly diagnose the issue and fix it right the first time and not take me to the cleaners in the process.

I have a mechanic that is really good. But he is very expensive. I need someone good and a good price.

what made you think it was dumping fuel? I'm wondering if its not a UVCH or possibly even the CPS.

At one point i was getting a lot of black smoke out the exhaust and my turbo temp was running hotter than normal. It was running really rough. It seemed to me to be an injector stuck open. Replaced it and that problem was fixed. I love my truck and really want it to just be running correctly. I have been dealing with this problem for way too long. I am missing out on work and just not being able to run it.
