Anyone have a good 7.3 mechanic or shop to recommend in the lower mainalnd? Am having intermittent rough idle/running problem so want some that has 7.3 experience, analyzer,testing equip and ability to idenfity the fix without throwing parts at it at my cost. Thanks for your help.
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 !!!
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?

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.
