Need 7.3 diesel Mechanic in Bellingham Area

Am having intermittent rough running problem with my 7.3. Would appreciate recommendations for a knowledgeable 7.3 mechanic or shop in the Bellinham, Burlington or even Everette area. Would like one that can use approriate engine analizer and pressssure testers etc to be able to find the problem without throwing parts at it at my cost. Can you recommend one that you have had good experience with. Thanks for your help.

I've heard good things about Dynomite Diesel in Monroe. I personally haven't been to them, but plan to have them do work on my Dodge in the future.

Thanks Jimmy. Appreciate the help. Am surprised that with all the shops in this corridor not many recommendations. Wonder if this is because little good experience or people don't want to stick their neck out or what ?

Seems like a lot of the guys do the work themselves,,, maybe that's why they have no recommendations??

And I don't have one that I've ever used down here,,, as there hasn't yet been anything that I haven't been able to do myself.

Exactly what is the issue??? Maybe you don't need a shop?? Some outstanding advice in these here parts!!

Thanks for interest and responses Lizzie, Tom and Driximus. Unfortunately not all of us have the same talents so while I can do basic maintenence I need help with the electronic sensors and systems and heavy mechanical things. Did have thread on 7.3 (intermittent very rough idle)which was where I discovered that may need someone with AE or similar and ability to diagnose issue. Harder in that its intermittient. Am down that way frequently so would consider someone with the ability to assist in this area to help me.

DDP is mainly a Dodge shop. They do good work with Ford injectors and head stud installation on 6.0's.
