Why did you put this in the "questions for all other cars"? Didn't like the odds a Volvo guy might answer it?
One last thing, when you say.
"Sounds good to me. But, I bet if I donated $1000, an answer, right or wrong, would be forthcoming. "
Not only am I deeply offended, but also you truly show how ignorant you can be. Here is the situation: The fellow techs and myself have paid our dues in the miserable world of the auto repair industry. IT is generally thankless, it is horrendously expensive to be an owner or tech, involves serious brain racking, massive stress and the ability to maintain ethics.
To get the information out of the person having the car difficulties is CRITICAL! For you to treat Merlin like that was BS and you owe him an apology. If you re Man enough and can do that, I ll try to help you and bet others can forgive. See when we spend out free time here to help people we don t know; help them understand, learn and maybe fix their car, see if they are being treated fairly at their local garage or have no other avenue to take . Baby, it ain t for the money. It s a pat on the back, but frankly I could make that in 3 hours on a side job if I chose to spend my time that way. It gets frustating dealing with people who give lousy info to work with. You ask a few questions and don't reply. Over and Over. Personally, I get a little irritated with it an don't answer them if there is lacking or whacko information.
