    Research and homework :eek:
    Wouldn't it be easier to ask you what is wrong with my machine? :D

    On a more serious note. I think that is a good idea

    Can bus, basic hydraulics, basic engine, and basic electrical would probably get most things in the right direction

    Other forums I've been on have these. It's good to direct people to so they have a basic starting point before asking questions that are covered regularly

    Most answers have been posted . Nobody uses the search function. Lately , folks can't even form a complete sentence. I know, google translate, yadda yadda yadda.
    Since we're talking sticky, how about we stop entertaining the emissions delete crowd. At least here in America. Its getting old and I'm sure the EPA is behind half of them.

    Yeah theres no place for emissions delete it wont likely fix the issue at hand in the first place plus it's illegal. I thought I read in the rules no illegal posts.........

    Having basic sticky posts makes it easier to direct people to info that will help with the problem.

    I'd be happy to help with sticky info

    One excellent point in favor of sticky threads, the moderators can keep them trimmed of off topic or redundant posts, makes it easier than trying to read through 16 pages of posts for the one answer that might pertain to your needs.
