I can't seem to get the search function to work very well. I type in the words like "oiled air filters" and set the time frame to newer than 4 years, but it does not bring anything up. Any other tips to make it work? Surely they must have discussed "oiled air filters in the last 4 years. It seems to bring up anything with "oiled", "air" and "filters". How do we get it to reach just the combination of the three words? Thanks.

Using the search function on this site is usually an exercise in futility.

Use Google to search it. Here's how:
2004 Silverado - on its 3rd Jasper engine in less than one year.

Put your query in google search engine, and in addition enter as one of the search terms.

The search function here doesn't work very well, yet we still have people saying to SEARCH.

Your best bet is to Google your subject plus

"PYB bobistheoilguy" for example then refine your search to display results only from this site.
