- now we need to find a mechanic, hopefully today, unless this is something we can manage ourselves? Used to do our own mechanics - but that was when things were simple without all the electronic stuff.
I see willwren
is from Corvallis.
- any mechanics you would recommend in the Sweet Home or Lebanon area? Haven't been here long enough to know who is good, and, trustworthy (and hopefully affordable).
I realize that there are a lot of electronics on the engine, but an engine is still and engine... There are a series of things that need to be done... But the most important is getting all of the correct parts, as well as getting the Upgraded gaskets from the dealer...
I replaced my lower intake gaskets, coolant bypass Elbow, and upper intake... Had to do the water pump too...
If you do the work on your own you will be out a little better than $200... The shop will charge $700-$800... I could do this job in a matter of a few hours if I wanted to...
Have a look at my thread, there are a couple of others like it some place... May give you an idea of what you are getting into...
