Any Powerstroke Techs in the Bay Area?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if there are any good PS techs here in the SF Bay Area. This is my first truck (and is my daily driver). I've always had cars but never did work on them too much.

Anyways, I just wants someone to check out the truck to see if they see anything wrong as I am still learning on what to look out for! I'll buy the beer!

Thanks for any recommendations, etc!

Mark

This guy thinks he knows 7.3's...

I guess he'd be OK to "look over" a truck!


I kid! Marc knows his stuff. Not as well as Jon I heard...

Actually I'd love to have Marc look it over. I just need someone to tell me..."Hey you need to do this" etc. I'll have to get your number and we could set something up! It looks like about a 2 1/2 hour drive! Not too bad!

You can also take it over to Left Coast Diesel in Concord (off Hwy 4). Eric and crew can take a look at it.

Whatever you do get a second opinion. Or for that matter a third or fourth. PM me if you want and maybe we can get together. Not affiliated with any shop or mechanic.

I did contact strokin_early_99 but I think he's a bit busy so I don't want to bother him. I just need to give Marc a call and take a 2 hour drive!

Thanks everyone for your replies!
