Welcome to the Automotive forum, a tech chat forum for automobiles, motorcycles, and related technology.
Your post must follow these forum rules in addition to the site rules.
Act like you are old enough to own a car. •
Do not post advice that is dangerous, unsafe, or illegal. You should be 100% sure of any advice you give here. If your advice looks questionable, expect others to question it. •
Do not post inline images. Instead, please upload any photos to this site so that they may be automatically thumbnailed and made into a slide show. Uploading your images also provides much faster page load times. If you must keep your image off site, then just post a link to the image. •
Do not post any sort of advertising or referral links. No cars/motorcycles/parts for sale. No "WTB" threads. •
No import vs. domestic flaming. No flaming someone's choice of manufacturer or marque. •
Purely social, political, or non-technical threads like "Who is the hottest chick in racing?" or "Anyone see that race at Talladega?" do not belong in this "Tech Chat" forum. •
Due to an official request we can no longer allow Carfax reports to be exchanged. Please do not ask for, or offer any reports from now on. •
As a courtesy to others, please include the make, model, and year of your vehicle when asking a question. In fact the more information you can provide, the better.
Posts that violate the forum rules may be edited by the moderators or deleted.
