: recommended shop in Toronto/Kitchener area

11-06-07, 12:29 PM
All indications point to me needing a replacement engine for my 2001DTS. It exhibits all the symptoms of a leaking head gasket. Disappearing coolant, clouds of white steam/smoke on startup. Overheating.

IS this a job that could be done by a local shop or is it recommended that a dealership do it?

Does anyone have a shop they would recommend for doing the engine replacement?

I'm not sure this is the right section and if not the Mods could put it where it belongs.

Having been a Mercede owner previously, they had on their forums recommended shops for those who owned those cars and that were considered reputable from all over the US and Canada.
Hoping to get similar info here.

thanks in advance
