2007 WK CRD Mechanic Denver CO

I've had a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD. Love the rig and everything about it, but it has recently developed an oil leak. I'm looking for a good honest mechanic around Denver CO with experience working on this motor...I've had less than stellar experience with dealership in the past. If you know anyone please let me know. Willing to drive to North to Ft Collins or even Cheyenne or South to Colorado Springs for the right shop. Thanks in advance.

I'm in Fort Collins - there's only one shop in town that has even a remote level of familiarity with this engine. European Motor Cars (http://europeanmotorcarsservicecenter.com/). If you go to them, ask for Lou or John and mention that the guy with the Army green Jeep referred you. They're good people that know the OM642, but they don't get in to overly-technical issues; I would definitely trust them to track down an oil leak.

Another member here, Jambalam, recommends Branch Automotive and Emissions Testing in Highlands Ranch (http://branchautomotive.com/). I haven't personally worked with them, but Jambalam knows his stuff and I trust his recommendation.

Do you have a photo showing the area around the oil leak? I recently uncovered oil residue in my engine bay. TLDR, turned out to be a cracked intercooler pipe.

Regardless of where you end up taking it, please post here or message me with how it turns out.

Check out Linden Automotive in Golden. They specialize in Sprinters and had competitive rates for Denver.

Many thanks Tetto. After having a 'professional' ruin my alternator doing a simple oil change, I now do all the basic work myself. But I'm an OTR truck driver so I don't have enough home time to diagnose or repair this problem. I believe the leak is near the back of the motor and seems to be a pretty big one. I will start with European Motor Cars then Branch and will share my experience. Thanks again!
