I am not happy. I pay a fee to use this web site every month for 3 years now. I have never been strong armed into paying more money to get a answer. I believe this is blackmail and is against the law here in Alabama. I will be submitting this to the district attorneys office in the morning. I am also reporting you to Just answer customer service and if you are found in violation of their code of conduct you will be banned from use of this site. You picked the wrong person to play your RICO scam with.

Hi,
If you do not wish to accept the offer that is made you simply have to decline the offer. Nobody is forcing anything on you or black mailing you. I made an offer I thought would be appealing vs. other, less detailed answer options. I will happily opt out of the question and release it to other experts.

I have a 2007 Mini Cooper S R56. Recently, car has had boost or acceleration problem or reduced power with limp mode light coming on frequently under hard acceleration. I have recently replaced with new turbo charger, new high pressure fuel pump with no noticeable improvement, so I bit the bullet and brought to local Mini dealership for diagnosis. Their result showed the vacuum pump and EPDW valve showed low vacuum to turbo and quoted price to replace both. I declined and replaced with new units at a cheaper cost, but the car had not noticeable improvements again. I am at a loss now at what the problem could be, as even the Mini dealer techs diagnosed it incorrectly. … read more
