Dunno about in Columbia

Heres a bump

Scott @ Trucks Unlimited is where many people do business but he is up in Winston Salem

Someone will probably drop you a line to someone closer though

Not exactly sure. Noticed the fuel smell night before last. Drove it to work today and could smell it again. Looked at it was leaking down the back of the motor, or should I say pouring down.

I had a breakdown while visiting our son in Columbia last month. I had the tow driver take me to the AAA shop on Lake Murray Blvd. They took great care of my truck. I'd recommend them. Their # is (803) 678-4000

My fuel pump quit. We were leaving the next day for Florida for a cruise, so I left it with them for the week. They had it fixed on Monday and put in back in the shop every night so it wouldn't be sitting out on their lot.
