    So who's the current go-to for service? San Diego North County area?

    Time to take the '99 in for some overdue major maintenance, and of course I don't have time to turn wrenches myself...who's doing the good work now?

    Probably going to need benching injectors, harness, etc. Truck is right at 197K, but it's time to check on that stuff. Also trans, come to think of it. along with other things.......

    Any help appreciated!

    Thumbs up

    The only shop I feel is worth recommending is Domestic Diesel...Owner, John Ferguson.
    The guy is honest, does good work, and takes care of SoCAPS members.

    He's in Chino and a drive for you, but it's your decision.
    Call and talk to John, then decide.

    I'm seeing him mentioned quite a bit, I'll probably be giving him a call.

    Wasn't there a good shop in Mission Viejo at one time?

    I recommend domestic as well. The shop that was in Mission Viejo has moved to Midway City and the hype over that shop passed a long time ago but the mechanic that worked there when they were in Mission Viejo works at Domestic Diesel now. I would give Diesel Tech a try to.

    That hype has passed for good reason. I had more than one bad experience with them.

    Matt was the best thing about the shop formerly in Mission Viejo. I followed Matt to Norco and now intend to start going to Domestic.

    Tried to drop the truck off at Diesel Tech today. Called them yesterday, said there'll be a tech there from 8-11, I managed to get there about quarter till eleven.

    Nope. No one home.

    Well, that was a fun 130 mile drive. Wife followed me in her car, she was plenty happy.

    There's gotta be someone in North County San Diego, gotta be.

    I appreciate that, and thanks. However, I've decided to go with someone a bit closer to home.

    Good on you for offering the transport. I'll keep you in mind if work is needed in the future.
