Now I haven't been working on cars for over 20 years.. I don't know a whole alot about how to fix alot of cars, but I know how to repair the problems on my car. I've had it long enough, 10+ years now, I'm past taking it to a mechanic who knows jack about my SVT. I don't however know how to diagnose alot of problems that concern this car. I turn to this forum to help me figure out my issues and help me to figure out what they are; and how to figure out to fix them. I know if its sweet its coolant and not oil. So, if the OP isn't a car genius and is trying to diagnose an unknown problem, he could try that method. It would save him taking it to a shop, who might charge a diagnostic fee...
