Is there a reason that the search feature dismisses words like "209"? This seems like it would be a very useful way to narrow down the search if model numbers were allowed.

Just wonderin'

"rpm" is another one that the search engine kicks out.

If you need to search short words do it in Google. Use the following format

oil site:www.tmcowners.com (http://www.tmcowners.com)
rpm site:www.tmcowners.com (http://www.tmcowners.com)
209 site:www.tmcowners.com

This will give you only results for those words on this site.

TMC no1 has this in his signature. It is all you need.

VERY NICE. Thanks guys!

This will really help get around the problem. I still wonder why the TMC search can't handle it.
