Need better search engine!

Postby MEK » Sun Oct 19, 2014 2:24 pm

I love the information on this site but I have had issues searching for specific answers.
If I type "Trooper Oil Leak" I get everything with all these words in it.
I have seen thousands of results come up and none are what I am looking for?
I have had better luck using Google to return more specific results from
I can select "More results from" then I just open the desired results in new tabs.
Maybe add an option for "The Exact phrase" in advanced search?

I'll certainly agree with that.

It's cheaper to fix what you have than to buy someone else's problems.

That IS an option in the Google search. You have to put the phrase inside quotation marks.

Just put that in front of your Google search and you'll get results from this site. Use quotations like said if you want exact results.
