Re: I Cut The CORD!!!!! Best $35 spent! BT-S2 1000m Bluetooth Headset Review

Great Information and even GREATER Explanation!!! The BT-S2 is merely the "conduit" to the phone so it doesn't have the same "data" stored in it. You have to make the phone do the "work", then deal with the "basics" through the BT-S2. It works just like Shawn explained. For the price, its a great ad...

Re: new to me and running very rough 1990

The "new-to-me" part makes me wonder how much solid "background" you have on that new ride. Since that beast is 27-28 yrs old (like mine), get every ounce of background on it that you can, it'll help us troubleshoot your problem. As stated previously, checking the vacuum lines sounds like a solid pl...
