Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks

How to get GOOD Answers

Please, please please, when you ask a question, give as much detail as you can.

To get good answers, you HAVE to ask GOOD questions!

I know you are sitting in front of your exercise bike, and you want a manual for it, but it is no good putting a question in the category of exercise bikes and just write

'I need a manual'

This happens time and time again. It doesn't even matter if the partial image in the category is
JUST LIKE YOURS! We need, make and model to help you.

If you are asking questions about vehicles, or anything that may change on a yearly basis, please also include the year.

Today, a young fella posted 'I need an assembly diagram'. I posted an assembly diagram for an exercise bike. He responded "you gave me details on an exercise bike, I want a diagram for a Co2 BB Air-rifle ". You see the problem :>)

If you do post something really vague, don't be surprised if I have some fun with you!

I need to see the interior of this boat in order to restore it correctly please

Aha, so the 1968 Camaro details were no good then? :>)

I though that might give you a clue that you weren't supplying enough information, in fact in that post as this one, there are no details. To get good answers, you have to ask good questions.

You post this to the category 'Cars and Trucks'.
You say 'this boat', but no details of the boat.

I can supply you with lots of boat interior pictures, but not necessarily, the boat you have :>)
