stuck in Coeur d' Alene

Howdy Ford enthusiasts of Idaho. I have trouble with my F350 and was wondering if you know a reliable and possibly affordable diesel mechanic in Coeur d' Alene? I'm from KY, long way from home and don't know anybody or anything around here. Would appreciate some advice.

What needs to be done? A friend of mine is a diesel mech and is between jobs, he might be able to do it and give you a deal.

One of the only reliable shops that I know if in cda is alligator performance but I will do a little digging around and see if I can find some others.

What is going on with your truck?

Well the power loss problems seem to have originated from oil loss/burn. I'm pretty sure it's the unserviceable plug on the HOPOP that causes the loss.

I was refueling and got back on I 90 when I couldn't pick up speed, it sounded like the engine wasn't getting fuel, but then it went back to normal but the service engine light stayed on. This morning I noticed that there was no oil in the engune anymore. I know I have a little leak but I have no idea where the 15 qt. Went. I'm pretty sure the problem is the non servicable plug on the HPOP.
