DISCLAIMER: All observations made in these pages are based solely on the anecdotal experiences of their authors. The contributions are reprinted here exactly as posted by the contributors. The spelling, syntax, grammar, etc have purposely not been corrected in order to retain its original flavor. The contributors are from throughout the World, and English may very well not be their native language. Don't be an ass and complain about the lexicon. YMMV, of course. You are "on your own", and I take no responsibility if someone tries anything in this website and gets into trouble with the law, their dealer, significant other, or the manufacturer. Or damages their person or property, or goes deaf, dumb, or blind. If you are not competent and comfortable with the inner workings of internal combustion engines, do the wise thing and defer to an experienced mechanic. Take everything you read or hear "anywhere" butt especially on the Web with a large dose of salt.
