Thanks in advance for your reply,

Hopefully one of the bay area guys can chime in. During my warranty I considered using Towne Ford in Redwood city because the manager Jay Mento was (is?) affiliated with Sportsmobile West. Not sure of their quality then or now but felt better having someone that at least knew what a Sportsmobile was. Jays Performance Diesel is starting to do a lot of diesel work in Fresno for SMB. Justin seems to know his stuff and they did a good job for me. Zilstra's Automotive rebuilt my engine and did a good job but a little pricey & about 45 min S/O SMBW. Valley Hybrids in Stockton was recommended by Advanced Adapters as a repair shop for the Atlas transfer case. They are a 4x4 shop not an diesel shop so to speak. Good luck on your quest.

Just wanted to post a big "thumbs-up" for the guys at Devil Mountain Diesel in Concord, Ca. Mark and Jay have gone out of there way to keep my 7.3 van running tip top. Honest, reliable and smart guys.

How about Colorado - specifically the front range (Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins)?

I can vouch for Tuttle-Click's Capistrano Ford, and Rich Rader, the service manager. He took special interest in my SMB and doggedly pursued and fixed an issue which did not show up as an error code, thus took some time to track down. Had gone to a couple of other mechanics over several months period who could not identify the condition.

Golden Nugget Automotive, just off 395 in Gardnerville, NV. We pulled in with a bum vacuum pump on our 6.0 PSD Quadvan. They had the part and had us fixed same day, a couple weeks ago while we were traveling. Great people and the mechanics were friendly and knowledgeable. They were familiar with the van situation and understood our need to to be back and going quickly!
