Forum Search - Not worth a sh....

Or maybe I'm doing something wrong. When I type in keywords like "Timing Belt" or "Spark Plug", I would think it would yield results that just have those words in the title or body of the forum. However, I always get a ton of junk that is not related at all. This happens on another forum I'm on as well.

I've tried the advanced search too and got the same poor results. Example. Advance searched for Timing Belt Replacement in the Spectra forum. About the 15th item says Timing Belt. The rest of the results are worthless.

Everybody says the "search" is your best friend but it apparently doesn't like me yet. HELP!

Thanks - Kirk

use google search instead.

I agree. I feel your pain. The search engine was modified and now it does not allow to search words shorter than 4 letters, such as HID, ECU...
Google search is OK, though.
