Boston Area Mechanic?

Looking to have the thermostats changed and flush the coolant on my LBZ dually. Anyone know a good mechanic in the Boston area? Preferably north west of Boston. Thanks.

I am in Burlington so not too far from either place.

I assume the Waltham shop is Wal-Lex Gulf 892 Lexington Street.

Thanks.

I ended up having the work done at Wal-Lex Gulf. I would definitely recommend them after going there. Knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.
