Can't believe I'm actually asking...

...Anyone know a good mechanic in South Jersey who works on....Chevies? My old man has a 1998's a turd with tires. They have it at a place right now because it wouldn't start, and this guy is saying it's an intake mani leak. I've been home all weekend, and my brother-in-law, a GM mechanic was there all weekend, and we never saw a drop of orange anti-freeze. It sits overnight at this shop and this guy thinks we have a leak?

I wish they would've listened and started with the battery (it was 12F here last week) because it's free to check, but now we have this guy looking at it and wanting to give her a tune up and a new intake manifold gasket...not cheap labor.

Any help at all is appreciated. It just seems that this truck is looked at like a fish in a casino, and they take it for all its worth every time. I just need a guy who I can trust to work on this thing.

Thanks guys....happy holidays.
