The forum search facility will help you to find the information you're looking for however, it's a bit quirky if you're not used to using it.

The <search> link is towards the top of the forums page and looks like this : Search

Alternatively, just click HERE <-- click to link

Here are a few useful examples of keyword search phrases :

*egr*
*egr*valve*
egr AND valve
*egr* AND *valve*


(the *'s allow for example valve & valves)

here is an example of a bad search phrase :

my engine makes a lot of noise at 40mph

Additionally, to limit the information that is returned, you can restrict your search to a specific part of the forums in a number of ways ...

For example, by specifying the forum you want to search (eg Technical FAQ). When you perform your first search, one of the options in the search box is

Forum : [All available] v

From that drop down menu, you can select (for example), just the Technical FAQ forum, so your search is limited to just that forum!

To further refine your search, there is another drop-down box where you can choose to search the entire forum, (titles AND message content), just the messages or just the titles (this last option is great, but ONLY if people post with meaningful titles!)

Give it a go! It's great when you get the hang of it!
