  • Troubleshooting posts ONLY (read this!)

    There have been an increasing number of posts in the troubleshooting forum asking about removal procedures, and specific instructions on parts.

    I've been moving them to the MAINTENANCE forum as needed, but they are getting out of hand.

    To be clear:
    TROUBLESHOOTING: a place for posts when you are experiencing a problem and DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS FROM, or what it is related to.
    If you know that your battery is bad, you wouldn't post in here to ask about how to replace it. You would post in here to ask how to FIGURE OUT that your battery is bad.

    MAINTENANCE: a place for posts when you KNOW YOUR PROBLEM and want guidance on how to remove said problem part, or specific instruction on torquing, procedure, part numbers, etc. To post in here you should either be doing ROUTINE MAINTENANCE, or know what your problem is comming FROM. If you are unsure of why your car is acting up, your posts do not belong in here!

    Read it; heed it; do it.

    Please take a moment and use a meaningful thread title. Thread titles that are not discriptive of the problem will be less likely to have replys. If for an example you are having a problem with your transmission put something to calls this out in the thread title. Naming your thread "help" or "contour problem" doesn't help other users help you.

    So please take a moment and help yourself, give your thread a meaningful title, and make sure you include all the information like, year, model, engine and miles where applicable. By taking a moment to make sure all the information is available, the better others can help you.
