Default Guide to starting or replying to threads

1: If you are starting a thread, MAKE SURE YOU POST IT IN THE CORRECT SECTION. Example: fuel, exhaust, transmission, drive accessories, suspension, etc, DO NOT go in the internal engine section.

2: State what vehicle, year, engine, transmission, mileage, condition and any modifications or add-ons that’s been installed. We can’t help you if we don’t know what you have.

3: Keep it short and to the point. Don’t drone on with long paragraphs, nobody’s gonna read them.

4: Try to be accurate and let us know what led up to your problem and what you’ve tried to fix it.

5: If people make suggestions, try them and report on the results. Ignoring suggestions is a great way to get yourself ignored. Same if people ask you questions. Answer them.

6: Don't expect instant responses. Sometimes it takes a day or two for people to respond.

7: Don't make duplicate threads in different sections.

8: If you’re replying to somebody’s thread, make sure you’ve read all the posts so you don’t give duplicate answers. Keep it short and sweet, to the point.

9: If somebody, including the OP, becomes combative or nasty, don’t fuel the fire, say nothing and step away. Only add to a thread what’s relevant to the car questions & answers in the thread.

10: Don’t poke fun at people who aren’t as articulate, can’t write or spell as good as you. Let’s help, not tease, hurt or bully people.
