Hi All,

New owner. 2008 E350 6.0L Diesel. EB 50 4x4 Sportsmobile.

Anyone in the area perhaps have a good Diesel mechanic / garage?
It's proving quite hard to find.

Is it me or do all the personnel at the Ford Dealers have comb-overs or wear a Toupe?

It just doesn't give me a lot of confidence that they will pay special attention, like with the Amsoil etc. Are these fears unfounded?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Will Arnot

John Kalmbach has written here the formula for finding a dealership that is used to handling fleets of vans with all their permutaions. I don't know how you'd search for it. Maybe PM him?

One way to locate Ford Dealers near you is to go to; . Enter your zip code and select "Business Preferred Network - Service Centers". You'll get a list of several dealers in your area. Fleet Dealers are usually better equipped to work on SMB's because they typically have more experience with diesel engines and are use to working with Ford vehicles that have been upfitted.

Good Luck!
