    Question Needed mechanic in Riverside

    I need to replace my icp sensor and harness, I have already bought the parts, but just haven't found the time to replace them.

    It is throwing a P2285 code, along with the oil leak, and now has begun to surge at idle. All the symptoms of I need this done right away.

    With this economy, I'm trying to save every dollar, so I don't want to go give my cash to a dealer, besides their pricing is rich for my blood.
    anyone know, or recommend a good 6.0 diesel mechanic in riverside?

    It's really not that tough of a job to take on yourself, but as far as a recommendation you can't go wrong with Loren @ DieselTech in San Jacinto.

    I have the 03 6.0, and from what I hear, its a little tougher than the other years. Well if I don't get any good recommendations, I'll have to try it.

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Well I called these guys,just got off the phone with them, they told me they don't install parts for people who have bought them somewhere else, WOW!! Turning down a customer since I already have the parts.

    This is exactly why I asked if anyone knew about a mechanic, maybe someone who lost their job or someone who needs that extra work for some extra spending cash.
