Looking for a knowlegeable diesel shop

Need opinions, looking for a knowlegeable diesel shop around the Thornton area.
Bought a 2000 psd a while back, and although I am happy with it, I have some concerns on engine noises (are they normal) and performance (is it right for stock) and such. Looking for someone to listen/drive and give me advice. Not looking for freebies.

Thanks for your inputs.

Bob

Try the Northern Colorado PSD club. They have a website, and have get togethers regularly.

If you have to have a shop look at it, go to ATS in Wheatridge.

Also look for a shop on south Sante Fe run by Jim Wright. They are diesel only. He is a graduate from Mercedes, and is very good. Also has a dyno there. Can't think of the name of his shop.

Just about Oxford, or maybe a block or two South of that on the West side. You have to get to it from a service road. I'm trying to remember the name. He used to do the work on my Mercedes Diesel.. I believe it is Hilton Diesel or Hilton Service or ?


They have a great reputation.

I don't have any experience with Diesel stuff, but the guy across the street from me owns a PSD, and he runs a shop called Keep Kool. It's on 72nd and Washington if I remember correctly.
