Can anyone recommend a shop/mechanic between N. Seattle and Everett?

I have an '96 F250 7.3 diesel that stopped running due to bad fuel and need to have the tanks drained and cleaned, as well as a couple of things replaced (such as the brakes, senders, and possibly a couple of other things). Was tempted to do it myself, but the HoA is throwing a bitchfest.... I was wondering if anyone could recommend a shop/mechanic in the area?

RE: N. Seattle shops

We had a new transmission put in our '95 F250 gasser at Trans Service Inc. Not sure what else they might be able to help with. They were pretty easy to work with, and came recommended by a good friend "in the know".

Just found your thread after seeing the Visitor Message.

I could do the work on your truck but I do not have the time. My shop is in Marysville and you need a couple days worth of work which I can't afford to take.

Having my wisdom teeth pulled Monday and my wife is 8.5 months pregnant so we have a ton going on and I'm hustling to slam out a couple of my projects before the baby comes.

As for recommending a shop I'm not sure, never paid a shop to work on a vehicle.

I HATED the HOA I lived in in AZ and pretty sure by the regular fines that they hated me too. lol

Hah, thanks for the replies!

Took the bed off, then finally managed to roll the truck in the garage somehow. I pulled the tanks and noticed that the screens on the sending units are clogged to crap... so looks like I'll be doing the work myself.

Ive used Fleet Service in Everett for about 10 years now. Very reasonable and knowledgeable. They are very adept at Diesel.

Give Rick a call and Tell him Rick sent you.
