Just wanted to give a heads up for our South Ontario Diesel heads out there of a great Diesel Tech guy. I live in Oakville and had some really bad experiances withe the dealer near me so I out the word out for a diesel tech within 100klm of Oakville. I was desperate. A member on another forum pointed me to a great mechanic called "m-chan68". he has treated my truck and me like no other dealer has. Just search my posts and read my issues with other dealships before I found Mike.
The travel tome for me is worth it to have my truck looked at and diagnosed by a certified and competent tech. and who loves diesel engines.
The dealership is in Toronto called "Yorkdale Ford" and is located on Dufferin just south of the 401.
If anyone is looking like I was. You'll thank me later. By the way Sonia the service adviser is quite knowledgeable on Diesel's as well.
Thanks for the kudos. I have been with Ford since January of 2000. My main job at my workplace, is anything to do with engines (gassers or diesels). Those of you curious about my experience, I have "been inside" almost every engine of Ford products of the last ten years. As far as gassers, I'm more mainly experienced with the 4.6/5.4/6.8L engine family. However, of late I have been replacing more than my fair share of phasers on 3.5L Edges. I enjoy wrenching on Crown Vics/Grand Marquis' as well as Mustangs too. I consider myself a RWD fan. I would LOVE for Ford NOT to discontinue the Crown Vic/Grand Marquis/Town Car line. If anything, I would rather see FoMoCo update the above mentioned Panther Chassis with some minor upgrades, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, I would LOVE to see the new "5.0L" make its way into this model line, along with the amazingly efficient and smooth shifting 6R80 transmission. Those in favour of this idea, please post a reply and send a petition to FoMoCo.
