I was trying earlier in the thread to assist by giving a number of
probing questions that might have helped me (or anyone else) to narrow
down the source of the problem- try reading an entire thread before
jumping in and making rude comments. If you will also please take
note, my comment was followed by what is commonly known as a "winky
indicating that the comment was made in jest.
As far as my car, my posts have been made in an attempt to a)find and
solve my problem, and b) to share the experience so that subsequent
people with the same difficulty could do so more easily. If you
understood cars or had worked on them for any length of time [it is
possible that you have, but your posts don't seem to indicate that]
you would understand how difficult it can be to diagnose a failing
(but not failed) AMM. Even some experienced mechanics here commented
that the failure of the AMM in that way was difficult to diagnose, and
that the passing of the two standard tests for it had thrown them off
as well as they had me.
And what about the calling the kettle black? How about your positive
contributions to the group? Let us examine them together. They have
most recently included:
> No idea about the Cd wiring being pre-installed I suppose .
> If no, don't bother to reply
But you replied anyway with, "Sorry, not sure about the wiring."
"You won't be disappointed but there aren't many fans of the V/S40 on
this newsgroup so don't hold your breath waiting for replies."
But you talk about how it seems to be eating motor mounts like breath
mints- I certainly would be disappointed if that were the case with a
car I had purchased.

"Sounds like you are driving a lemon!!"
This group is populated by helpful and generous people who have
contributed a mass of excellent hints, tips, and advice. Over the past
three years or so I would like to think I have been part of that mass
of assistance to others. Based on the above quotes taken from your
previous posts of recent date, if everyone here followed your
standards of "helpful comments," this group would be bordering on

And my car is running great, shifting like new, and a joy to drive as
well. Even my wife could feel the diffeence riding in the passenger's
seat. I even just installed new rear shocks this afternoon which made
a big difference. I might post a message about the installation, so
take care not to read it.
