    i am my own diesel mechanic. with a whole fleet of motors it would cost and arm and a leg to have somebody else change the oil and keep them running.

    diesels are for the most part easy to work on anyways. air and diesel go in, there is a bang and exhaust comes out.

    Yea not really worried about the simple oil change, maitanence

    Looking for someone with knowledge, pick their brains

    It also needs to be hooked to a comp, so the codes can be read. Cant do that in the home garage.........

    There are several forums that are good for this. A good diesel mechanic is hard to find. I had an hour drive to strathroy for mine. I would call a local diesel parts place ( like an injector pump rebuild place) and get a referral. I can prob get u a good forum but need to know what make

    WWW.Oilburners.net. good site for trouble shooting. I stick with my original thought of getting reference from a local diesel parts rebuild/supply company

    i have tdi diesel, i do my own work, i bought the vag cable and can scan most everything the dealer can.. i also have a efi live cable and can scan most all Chevy gmc with live data. also i think now they added the newer cummins

    both cables cost over 1000$ total but well worth it. cant stand someone else working on my stuff..
