    I just popped over to FullSizeChevy.com since ther are more of the newer Vortec trucks over there. Wanted an opinion on something to do with installing an MSD box on my 97, figured it a good spot.

    Anyway, I popped into the "Maintenence" section, after our "oil change" discussion here. So I start popping around, and well I know a lot of guys here aren't automotive technicians, but I'd say the overall gearhead know how here is pretty darn good. My god that place was making my head hurt. Every post was "I replaced, this, this, this, this, this, this, AND this, and my problem is still there"... :doah:

    Or the one where someone said how they had a "pressure code" on their evap system. "Yea they have fuel pressure sensors, you probably need one of them!"... I politely informed them that it is the "Fuel TANK pressure sensor"...

    I could tell them where to put it, but I'd rather not be banned.

    I've had to ask Ford vehicle related questions on here (ck5) because the guys on the Ford forums couldn't help.

    And something else that really annoys me about another forum I'm on is when I ask a question or read other posts through a search and the only advice I get is "take it to a shop", or "my shop did xxx and got it working again..."

    You know, you're right... I almost never read 'take it to the shop' on CK5. About the only time is if the members truly believe it is in the best interest for the person having the problem. (Too advanced for them to do safely).

    I'm not sure what the other boards are like. I quit looking after I found CK5! :D

    Definitely my favourite site too!

    I go out, endure the crap from some of the other forums, then bring that knowledge here :D

    And yes, I find that FSC doesn't know anything about the rigs they are driving... I always hate being ahead of the game from others, impossible to bum knowledge off people if they don't know, which means I have to go through the hard work of figuring it out myself, LOL

    I think I've officially become addicted to giving advice on FSC, hahaha. I just feel sorry for these guys, that and it makes me feel like a damn genius...
