I need a diesel mechanic in SF Bay Area
the 1976 300D i drive daily is in need of some help. while my regular mechanic is friendly, inexpensive, and trustworthy, whenever i take the car in (which up to now has always been for things not engine-related) he always asks, a little puzzled and afraid, "is this a DIESEL?" and then looks relieved when i say, yes, but the trouble i'm having is with the left tie rod...
but now i need to get some work done on the engine. fuel filters need changing, some fuel lines are old and leaky, the fuel return might be clogged, i even suspect one of the cylinders is out. and maybe in the process of working on all this, i'd convert to bio, though it's not a priority. so i need a friendly, inexpensive, trustworthy DIESEL EXPERT--especially one who's knowledgeable with older models and sympathetic to their poor, poor owners. and if the shop is in the east bay, all the better--though i'd go anywhere from san jose to marin for good help. any suggestions?
