Search function

Why is it that my searches never serve up any results. I must be doing something wrong. Never had this problem before. Simple one word searches like "msd" do not have any results....maybe a setting?

Re: Search function

You must have at least four characters so try MSD* - The Astrix is the wildcard so anything in a fourth position will match MSD

You should get this listing...

Re: Search function

It's not your settings jkkrs310. It's the way the site owners have the searches setup. Too few characters will bring up far too many results, so the search term has to be a little longer. Try multiple words in a search like 'msd distributor' or 'msd ignition'.

Re: Search function

Also you can use the Google search in the drop down menu which Google's search engine limits hits to within Team Camaro, but I find the wildcard works best for terms less then four characters.

Re: Search function

If u simply click on the search not the drop down...u get bthe google site search which I find is often hopless ... below that is the site search which is damn good...maybe too good sometimes so use the + and - functions
This works best because it references directly the site data base, where as google references the google data base in relation to here.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
