    OC Diesel Mechanic Recommendations?

    Can anyone recommend a good diesel mechanic in South or Central Orange County?
    My fuel pump on my 7.3 has a leak and it looks like the turbo charger has to be removed to replace the pump.

    I bet it's the pulse damper leaking. It's a 20 minute fix and you don't remove the turbo. All I did was bend the correct size wrench 90 and was good to go.

    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.

    There are some rip off shops in OC if you don't choose carefully...I would highly recommend using one of the site sponsors, even if it's a little farther.
    Closest to you would be:
    1830 Town and Country Drive.
    Norco, CA 92860
    Tel: 951-272-4611

    Matt is the owner and I believe he is honest and knows the trucks!!
    As a start, call Matt and ask him what he thinks will fix your problem.

    PowerHouse Diesel is a new shop, but Matt is an experienced mechanic.
    (The other sponsors...I personally have had dealings with both Domestic Diesel and Diesel tech and would not hesitate to recommend either one!!)
