    Okay, why can I not find any posts before January 2004? I set max day limit to 270 looking for a discussion that I know happened and no results for the keywords before Jan.

    Thanks

    I just tested it by searching for arb in the 80/100 section and it went back through Dec 13, 2003.

    Could still be a data migration issue when he moved the site, dunno, but seems to work ok.

    try different search words,

    i looked for the "stuck bad" topic (guy in alaska that got a jeep and ram stuck in big creek), and it didn't show up, yet it showed up if i looked for "stuck" individually

    1> enter a word(s) in the box (valvoline)
    2> select "match all/any/phrase" (selected all)
    3> ignore the user/dropdown (leave as is)
    4> click "check all" to uncheck everything, then check only the sections you believe you'll find an answer (80-100 tech)
    5> select fields (I keep both usually)
    6> ignore min age (unless you want older posts), select max age (720 days)
    7> choose results quantity (500)

    That search resulted in 87 hits....oldest thread April 1, 2003
