A shop in or near OKC

I am trying to locate a trustworthy and reliable shop in or near OKC. I live outside the area, but am needing to find a shop in the area to do some diagnostics on my daughter's 1998 Ranger 3.0
5 speed.
It has long had a problem with poor starting in cold weather (cleaned MAF etc etc) and now is running rough at lower RPM's. We had the fuel pressure and all the sensors checked but didn't find anything to pinpoint the problem. The cold starts seem to do better if we add fuel conditioner/ injector cleaner to the fuel. It starts well during warm days.
Any help or advice?

seeing how you have a 98 model have you tried looking for an vacuum leaks that could cause hard starting and rough idle ..also if it is a vacuum leak usually it smooths out at higher rpm...good luck ..i live in yukon and used to take my truck to a guy that has a small shop on main street ..until i got up the nerve to do some work on my own ..but if its something that i cant figure out i just take it to him ...its Morris Automotive..its listed in the phone book ...Take it easy

I appreciate all the replies. I live in western Kansas (just north of Guymon in the Oklahoma Panhandle) and need to get this vehicle problem resolved. I'll call one of those guys and see what I can learn.
I get down to that part of the country occasionally also ( see http://www.texomaairboatclub.com/pics.htm ) and i'd like to stop in and visit with those guys in person also.

There was a time when I tried to stay with the learning curve on vehicle technology, but heck,,, I'll just pay someone else who has their brain full of this stuff and i'll save mine for something important hehehe

Thanks again!

Take it to the Valvoline instant oil change on Air Depot and SE15th in Midwest City (By Tinker AFB). Tell either Jimmy, Dianna or Ron that Sean sent you. They will check your computer for free. Don't buy anything from them though. They will probably try to sell you some injector cleaner or something you don't need.
