Don't know what to make of "0" "zip" "zilch" recommendations for mechanic in Lower mainland!!!
Is it because only people who do their own work are members here or no one wants to stick their neck out or no one has had good experience with a shop here or ????? This is supposed to be a place to get help from fellow Ford owners !!!

This forum sort of gets passed over and forgotten. The only one with any real traction is the BS thread. Anyway...

Can't say that I know of any Powerstroke specialists. There's BD Power in Abbotsford. NW Fuel Injection in Port Kells, but they're mostly a fuel injection place, not really into just Powerstrokes.

Hopefully someone else will chime in for you.

Need 7.3 diesel Mechanic in Lower mainland

Thanks for offer Jack. Posted symptoms of "Intermittent very rough idle" on 1999-2003 7.3 forum where I found I needed a mechanic or shop that had AE or similar equipment and ability to find the problem.. Can do minor maintenance but not electronic or heavy repairs so wanted someone here to go to for help when needed.

Don't take it to BD diesel in abbotsford their way overpriced. Trust me I took my 6.0 diesel there. Try PDR diesel in langley. Ive delt with them and they seem to know their ford diesels. How many miles on the truck? rough idle? very well could be a injector(s) going out on you.

You could try Precision Auto Services in Langley.... I have spoken to them a few times and had my truck in there once. They seem to have a decent diesel guy there. Worth calling maybe?

Thanks for your help Trophy. I'd actually sent them an email about the same time as I posted my request for suggestions here. In light of your recommendation I will followup with them.

You could also try Bernhausen diesel in Langley. They also specialize in ford diesels. With that amount of mileage it shouldn't be the injectors. It may be as John said, o-rings. I still have my original injectors and have 4 hundred thousand km's on my 7.3 .

and its jack and the o-rings do go bad. the navistar 444e is similar to the powerstroke.
they have the same injectors. no worries. and when you start pulling injectors out it will flood the crank case with fuel. and let them power down for atleast an hour. because it takes 110 vac to fire them. the ecm has a power inverter in it. and change your oil too. it will have diesel fuel in it. and it may flood the cylinders as well. and or both oil and fuel so be carefull. don't hyrdastatically lock the engine up with oil and fuel.
