VANCOUVER--where's a good ford mechanic??

It's hard to find a mechanic who has an HONEST passion for fords,and doesn't necessarily need to mark up part prices 200 %,to be satisfied with their day's work!!!,or sell something pricey,that doesn't really go along with the balance of the vehicle,,,,or install something without torquing a seal,,,,but knows what actually helps a cure?????????

...........any suggestions????????

----I'm a boat repair tech by trade,and am happy to be a friendly PROFFESIONAL anytime!!!and better,make a skills exchange!!!

There used to be a guy with a shop in Surrey just on the East end of the bridge that crosses in New Westminster

here's an example of my complaint......a shop quoted $400 to replace a power booster in an '86 ford van.
I picked one up for $130,and had it re and re'd in 1 hour--did I just earn $270/hr?
or
howabout this ?
An inspection garage tells me I'll need new kingpins--turns out they didn't look at them,and they're fine !


Sorry to rant,but just HAVE to let it out somewhere,otherwise might take anger/frustration out on a convenient innocent victim.
CHEERS!

I recommend, not only for Fords but for all vehicles, Willowbrook Firestone in Langley. 604-530-4162. Our family have taken all their vehicles there (imports and domestics) for over 10 years, he's never gouged us and offers a good shop rate. The only thing he wouldn't touch was the Aero's Airbag or the AirConditioning.

Well it has been about six months since we bought a engine but it was through Dams and it did come from Vulcan and its still going strong. Im getting a set of 370 heads on Monday also from dams I will see if they are from Vulcan or if ford has another rebuilder . Eric

Hey i broke down in van and used a shop a few blocks down (towards the ocean) from MEC, think it was a napa shop. They were great, told me worst case price and ended up costing me less due to some smart thinkin from the shop boys. Just my two cents worth.

cheers
