Please report back.

I encourage everyone to post their findings and results to this or any subject. It seems like in researching this and other issues, posters often post a problem and ask for advice and get feed back for possible solution and then the dialogue ends. I usually assume that their problem was fixed, but it sure would help others (especially those using search function in the future looking back) to know if suggestions worked, if some other solution was found (by mechanic or otherwise) or if problem still exists (good information in itself if suggestions tried and failed and also so that possibly others can give additional input).

On idle issue, many responses have suggested a fix but there is often no indication as to ultimate solution or whether suggestions were attempted.

This is in no way meant to be critical but is meant solely as something to make this board that much better. I personally thing it is terrific and anything that helps make it better should be shared/discussed. This forum and those in it have given me the both the courage, support and knowledge to attempt many things that I otherwise would not have (along with excellent parts support from Phil at partshop/fastlane).

Another way to think about it, is that any time advice is solicited, you are not just seeking assistance for your particular problem but are also providing assistance to those in the future, who will ultimately be faced with possibly the same set of issues.

Just my thoughts. Perhaps this should be its own post heading, if so please advise.
