Default guru's in Pittsburgh region

Anybody know of any Guru's near Pittsburgh? I live in Wheeling, WV and think I need one! I work near Greensburg, so nothing in this area is too far from me.

Dude, there's a Trusted TDI Mechanic's thread that's a sticky at the top of this forum.

Also, see the map link in my signature.

I know. I was looking for a guru. Only 1 trusted mechanic and my conversation with the shop worried me a little.

I appreciate the offer, but you're about 200 miles from me. I have been driving to and from work 80 miles each way and it is not ideal. The car has in my estimation about 40 horses! Do you have much experience with PD's?

I have seen this before, but never gave it any thought. I think VCDS may help in solving my problems, but not sure because I don't know what all can be done with it. Thought about getting one, but never spent the $ to do so. Approximately where in the region are you?

I work in Jeannette, so that wouldn't be too bad a drive. I have a tough week ahead of me...I am in Accounting and this is our month-end week and I have myself on a bit of an abbreviated schedule to take my son to Cub Scout camp on Thursday. I hate to go too long driving this thing like this, but my week is squeezing me real quick!
