I've got an old Isuzu pickup with a diesel motor. Does anyone know a good mechanic with the competence to work on it? I've searched all over but can't find a mechanic. I even looked on http://www.autorepairyellowpages.com but no luck. They have a lot of shops there but nobody in my area that works on Isuzu diesels. I'm in San Jose, Ca.

    I don't think it's getting fuel but I'm not sure, won't start.

    Possible timing belt broken. However even if it is i think this engine still may use a brake away rocker assembly and valve or piston damage may not be an issue!
    Fixed an older one years back and the rocker rails simply broke off and the engine was ok. So you are right you need a good Isuzu diesel mechanic, but i cant help with that. Back then it was pretty slick the way it was set up, just had to replace belt and rocker rail stanchions! This is just my suggestion, may be completely wrong!.
