GUIDELINES FOR REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE FORUM USE
Disclaimer: While the following guidelines cannot cover every situation, by using them and applying some good old fashioned common sense you will find your experience in this forum, and all the rest of the forums for that matter, a much more pleasurable and productive experience.
1. When asking questions about your car please provide year, make, model, engine size, and transmission type as a minimum. Of course any other pertinent information will be needed as well for example, if you have trouble with an inoperative window we need to know if they’re power or manual and knowing if it’s a two or four door may be helpful as well.
2. If there have been any repairs or maintenance performed on the car recently, this may be important so let us know. Also, if there is any past history of this or a related problem let us know that along with what was done to resolve it in the past.
3. Do not assume we know what you know or what you mean to say. We are more than willing to help but can only use the information you provide. Because we are online in a forum, we cannot see your face, hear the inflection in your voice or see, touch or hear your car. You are our eyes and ears and solving any problem begins with you and the effort you are willing to put forth helping us to help you. This brings us to…
4. The description. Please do not interpret what is going on with your car, just give us an explicit, step by step description. We need to know anything that might be a factor such as engine hot or cold, vehicle speed, weather conditions, etc. There are too many possibilities to name them all but you get the idea. Also, if you have already had the foresight to retrieve computer codes (in instances were that is helpful) let us know what they are. If you tell us you think it needs sparkplugs then your answer will be put in sparkplugs. Keep in mind if you knew what was wrong you probably wouldn’t be here asking for advice.
5. Finally introduce yourself. There is a section here at Car-Forums.com called “Introduce Yourself”. We don’t need your name, age, address, social security number and date of birth although if you want to share those details feel free to do so. It is nice however to know a little bit about the person who we’re trying to help. And honestly if you don’t have the time to type a few sentences about yourself, then we don’t have the time to help you. Remember you came to us looking for our years of knowledge, training and experience.
With that let me say welcome to the forums and we hope you enjoy your stay.
You are a fu@#ing riot. You really don't expect to get that amount of information from the people that post on a forum? You couldn't drag that shit out of them if you were a servive manager and talking to them face to face. :mrgreen:
I guess it wasn't that important now, was it? That might clear out some of
the riff raff. :clap:
Actually, all of my customer service representatives (sounds bitchin', huh?) are women. Female customers are very relaxed and open up to them. Male customers like to impress them with their knowledge. Between the fact that they're all well qualified, great with people, have a checklist to follow and they're hot to boot, they do a fine job of cracking the nut and getting out the info. The only credit I take is being smart enough to hire them.
Most of the CSR/SMGR here are women,but have yet to see a HOTTIE. The male reps are usually pure Dicks, reguardless if you are a m/f. They think(male) you don't have a clue as to what is going on and whatever they say is carved in stone////in the back of their f*#*#ng pea brain :cussing: Dude, I am RIFF RAFF :evil:
I don't let any dicks work for me. I'm dick enough for everybody. None of my chicks even come from an automotive background. They're all someone I've met in a retail setting and I had a gut feeling they could make me some money. The way I see it, if someone wants to do a job badly enough, they can be taught. Easy hours, good pay and they get to see me on a regular basis. What more could you want in a job. :mrgreen:
I typed a reply AGAIN and got dumped. I QUIT :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing:
You have the same problem as me... you type like an old man. Every few minutes copy what you've typed (so it's not gone forever) and then click preview post. If you take to long the server times you out and dumps you.
ok...sorry for the controversy. i'm sorry but i thought the info i provided would be enough to answer my question so does anyone know???

ok sorry once again for causing such a scene, but alas now i have introduced myself and trust me i do appreciate all or your knowledge or why else would i be here...soooo having said that, can anyone answer my question? thanks again
Probably not, at least if you want it to look nice. The place to ask would
be the shop who's doing the job for you. They can see the car, we can't.
How obvious was that?
Alternately your boyfriend who's "real into cars " should be able to answer your question. Ask him.
