Need a good diesel shop near Austin for an electrical gremlin

I have used and trust Premier Diesel up near Mansfield, TX but it is expensive to get a truck this heavy that far.

I'm frustrated with my truck to the point that my troubleshooting has turned into parts flinging at the truck and I'm ready to call in the pros!

I tried one shop and they didn't listen well, and replaced parts that I had already replaced twice (which was documented when I dropped it off) so I'm looking for some extensive experience beyond the diagnostic tool.

As an alternative - if you know a good shipping/towing company to get the Excursion to Mansfield I would like those recommendations as well!

Thanks!

I can't say they specialize in electrical problems but there's a garage that seems to specialize in ford diesels in Manor right on 290. You'll have to google because I can't remember the name of the place. Good luck, electrical problems are the worse. Usually it's a bad ground somewhere

M and M Diesel

I think you are talking about M and M Diesel - they have a Manor and Pflugerville location. They also have a week wait at least so plan ahead. We have heard good things about Patriot Engine and Transmission, also. A friend used M and M for a complete overhaul and was very pleased.

Not yet, found a recommended shop that was close.

It may not have been electrical though, pressure wouldn't hold steady at high idle so there is a new HPOP being installed.

Ok, I am off weekends for a while if you need something. I am thinking if you don't find anything in the engine causing it to cut out, the ignition switch in the column could be the culprit. They do wear out. Ours died on my wife one day. Just cut out when she turned right, and would not restart. It was the ignition tumbler. Had broken off in the ignition switch. Obviously, not the same problem you have, but it is a similar symptom.
