  • Ford CNG mechanics/dealerships?

    I never got my tanks inspected when I bought the truck, so I thought I'd get one done...I also might need a wheel bearing replaced, some engine smoking inspected, and someone to tell me how awesome an extended range, long bed, lifted 01 F150 CNG is.

    I used Villa Ford when I had a cng crown vic back in 2003. http://www.villaford.com/compressed_natural_gas.htm

      I have a CNG trained/certified repair shop in LA off the I-10 that I have been using for about 5 years now. They have always been great with my Crown Vic CNG and my F-250 CNG. And (IMHO) they have always been very fair on what they have charged me.

      While the shop is in LA, they have always worked on my car/truck within a "while I wait" time frame, and got me in and out in an hour or 2 (depending on what we are doing)

          I have used Ken Grody Ford in Buena Park for repairs to my Crown Vic - it's been a while since I was there, but they were quite good.

                  thanks for the responses; I just got in touch with Alternative Fuel Techinologies in Huntington Beach, and I'm going to take it there next Tuesday; he needs the truck for 1-2 hours

                  talking to the fellow on the phone, he said white smoke (and water dripping from the exhaust) is normal...it's just a byproduct of CNG combustion

                  Also called Ken Grody Ford, and they need the truck for 1 week and charge $250 for a CNG system inspection.



                  edit: nevermind; Villa Ford charges $330, but they can do it in one day (tomorrow) and I happen to be working about a half mile down the road, so they can do it while I'm working.
