Hey all,
Blew a head gasket coming back from Nola last weekend and need a solid mechanic in Pensacola FL to work on it, any suggestions?

Thanks!

Yes give a try on D24T.com

Stay away from Volvo mechanics would be my only advice. Typically are ignorant of diesel mechanic principles, try to work on D24T engines without special tools and essentially sabotage them (incorrect timing, loose hardware etc), then are well known to blame the engine rather than accept responsibility when their sabotage leads to engine damage.

Better option would be a VW diesel mechanic familiar with TDI engine. Check the mechanic's directory on tdiclub.com also.
