In Indianapolis - NEED HELP W/ TRUCK
I have now been stricken with the infamous EGR problems and I need some help.
This is my first diesel and I have had it for about 4.5 months and put around 7000 miles on it. Up until now it has been great. It is an 04 f250 4 door lariat with the 6.0 motor. It has 122,800 miles on it.
It is at a dealership right now and they are telling me I need egr, egr cooler, oil cooler, head gaskets (not sure if gaskets are bad but are saying to be safe while they are in there) - $5100.....
I really can't afford to spend $5100 on these repairs right now and I think it is really high. They said I could buy an egr delete and give it to them and that would save me around $800 which would bring me to $4300.
Does anyone know of any good diesel mechanics that do side work? A good diesel shop that is not too far from Indianapolis that would be cheaper than a dealership?
I know this is a lot to ask but I need help, I am willing to help turn a wrench on it, but I need someone who knows what they are doing. I will still pay good money for this to be done, I just think the price I have is way too high.
Any suggestions would help.
