Yes, you sure do. If English is not your first language, I
suggest an ESL (English as a Second Language) class at a
local high school or junior college. If that is not the
case, then you might seek a remedial English class at a
similar institution. Suggested topics for early attention
include capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, and
proof-reading.

That, of course, won't make your car run any better, but it
might enable you to seek assistance in a more effective
manner.

Re: 2001 ford explorer gas tank

I find it amusing that some people think that putting down others who
may not be as proficient in English as they are is wonderful way to
communicate. The gentleman's grammar and sentence structure were not
perfect, but I was able to understand the difficulty he was having
with his vehicle.

I would suggest that MS. or Mr. CWLee loosen up a bit, sit back and
have a nice glass of wine. If that doesn't work, there is an
appropriate web site to meet others that share your feelings

You are to be commended for your patience and abililty with
such attempts to communicate in writing. For the benefit of
the OP, I hope his bosses are always so accepting of his
writing skills.

A glass of wine sounds good.

As for "lossen up a bit," that is what our public school
system, and much of higher education, has been doing with
academic standards for more than a generation. It is called
dumbing down, and it is not all caused by affirmative action
pressures to meet quotas.

Back on topic, what is the problem with the OP's car, and
how can it be repaired? I did not find your diagnosis or
recommendations.

A fiction, as it were. Politeness. Something you seem to be unfamiliar
with.

How did you devine the OP is a product of our public schools?
See how that works?

There are a few possibilities. IAC. Plugged fuel filter. Too much crap
in the tank.
Among others.
I didn't see any from you, either.

It is a fine line between politeness, fantasy, political
correctness, and linguistic imprecision.

Illegal alien ==> undocumented worker.
Prostitute ==> generic sex street vendor.
Janitor ==> sanitary engineer.
Cool ==> kewl

Do you mean divine? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt
and assume merely a typo. :-)

I did not assume the OP is a product of our public school,
nor did I make such a statement. But, if I had to guess,
I'd estimate that the probability is .95 or higher that the
OP did not graduate from a private school in an English
speaking country.

> See how that works?


No. What is your point?

Again, I commend you for your patience, and ability to
understand what the OP was trying to communicate. I choose,
regularly, not to devote much energy trying to understand
poorly written material. Although retired now, I spent many
years reading the essays of public school graduates - many
of whom had all As and Bs in English yet could not
conjugate, punctuate, or spell beyond a 4th grade level.

I truly believe, and you may differ of course, that we do a
disservice to students and others by rewarding them for
shoddy work, by not pointing out their errors and thus
giving them avenues of growth and improvement, and by
pretending that all output is equally valued by society.

Ladies and gentlemen, what we have here is an honest to goodness "
prig". Just leave him/her alone in his/her feelings of righteousness.
They never, ever get the point.

As the thread shifts from rational discussion of ideas to ad
hominem attacks I bow out, giving you and others the
opportunity to have the last word.
