It's been my experience that most "mechanics" do not know what their doing.
I think it all depends on where you take it......IMO it's the few bad that give the gross generalization that " most" are bad...what I've come to see here on forums is that a good number of 5.0 owners are youngin's who often don't have two nickels to rub together and they take their ride to the lowest bidder.....The cheapest guy IMO is a bad philosophy to follow.....he's cheap for one reason...low overhead = often inexpensive/inexperienced techs hired, which ther in lies the prob of quality......Personally, If I didn't work on cars , I'd look for someone who knows these cars

The irony here is that what you paid a mechanic to do, your now checking again for mistakes. Fortunately mjr gives good advise and the knowledge gained is priceless. Keep us informed on what actually fixes your problem. I like to see how every situation ends.
