Have you checked for trouble codes?

No I havent. Those codes will tell you alot about your engine including alot of things designed to just cost extra money like egr valve needs replaced and such. Was looking for a mechanic that actually knew about engines not just one that knows how to work a computer. Sorry to have bothered you.

Are you kidding me? I am aware of what the computer can do and very competent when it comes to engines. If you feel an EGR, sensors. Can't cause problems, you are wrong.

Good luck
