There are few coherent questions posted here. Most people leave out all the facts and don't know enough about cars to understand the answers.

There are many dumb, incomplete, stupid, vague, ignorant, misspelled, foolish and moronic questions asked here. Will a Subaru engine fit in a Camaro is one of my favorites! The ones I really hate are the ones that are about 1,000 words of gibberish with absolutely no punctuation. There are also some good questions asked in a thoughtful well organized manner. Also there are many dumb statements posted here too with no explanation pointing to why the statement was made in the first place.

These forums aren't set up in any way for detailed specific help with diagnosing mechanical trouble. We can't even create posts formatted with paragraphs. There are tons of online forums dedicated to specific models that delve into intense mechanical how-to's that are far better suited for some of these questions (such as engine swaps, or rebuilding motors/trannys).

Speaking of swaps, I'm amazed at the number of people who think that swapping an engine is a simple task.

Let alone wanting a "how to" on engine swaps explained to them in a single paragraph.
