Dave Rocks to the rescue once again!

I'm a fair distance from home and I get a blinking slow down light. I never had one and wasn't sure how bad of shape I was in. First i googled it and found some info but none that really satisfied me. I send Dave a text and 30 sec later I get a call from him answers all the questions I had and got me back on the road....Thanks again brother. If your ever in central Mich you always have a place to stay all the beer you can drink and food you can eat my treat, Thanks again

What's next? 599GTO.458?

If you are going to tell someone how to remove a bolt you should at least know which way to turn the wrench.

Curious, what was the issue and what was the advice?

Also, I don't understand the meaning of the comments relating to 288.f40?

Guys, I had another Fchat account 288.F40

I created it so I could see photos when lurking then I found myself posting here and there.

I've been helping Mark with his car and yesterday I posted and signed the post "Best Regards, Dave Rocks"

I figured DrBob would run right to the mods to have me banned and the hammer most certainly fell.

No issue as I obviously T'd it up.

So now 348bubba has come her to rub it in

Dave,
I saw that post with your sig, and thought glad he is back. Your old posts I discovered in my searches were very helpful. I hate you had issues with the other forum, but glad I found where you are! Thanks again for your helpful posts.

Now I have two forums to waste time on......

Much appreciated. A handful of guys have followed me over here and it's flattering. I'm glad that find my efforts helpful.

Unfortunetly, there are 2 that made there way here only to stir the pot.

Randy,
That one doesn't even nudge the meter on the E scale.
