Lurker rule for new members
Feb 26, 2007 - 2:52 PM - by nukefission
Bringing this back to the top of the News section. I've been getting a lot of PMs lately from folks not familiar with this rule.

Each new member to register on DSMtalk automatically enters a seven (7) day "lurker" period, in which you are permitted to view and search the forums, use the private messaging system, but NOT post threads or replies. Seven days after your join date, you should be able to post in the forums. If after 8 days you still cannot post, please notify me or another admin or mod and we'll take care of it.

This rule is in place to deter trolls and spammers from registering only to post useless junk.

There are NO exceptions to the lurker rule. I will NOT respond to PMs about exceptions to this rule.

Why Wonít My Car Start?
May 05, 2015 - 12:12 PM - by AutoGuide.com

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'

While the two situations might seem similar, they have very different meanings that are important to a mechanic and can signal different problems calling for a variety of solutions.

'Itís important to note that a vehicle is an extremely complicated machine and can exhibit similar symptoms for a variety of reasons,' he said. 'That is why itís important to first look at the type of Ďno startí and then at the list of conditions that could be causing it in the first place.'
