    Top Five Ways To Get Questions Answered on GM Truck Club

    1) Use a specific title when starting a new thread.
    This may sound funny, but more people will read a thread with a very specific title. Use the best title you can think of so it stands out for people surfing through the new messages.

    Bad Title
    Can someone help me?
    Good Title
    2002 Trailblazer won't start - Bad Battery?

    2) Give Enough Information.
    All the time people post a general questions with not enough information. Don't go overboard though, just the basics are fine.

    Not Enough Information Post
    My SUV just stopped running. Can someone help me?
    Good Information Post
    My 2002 Chevy Trailblazer wouldn't start this morning. Any thoughts?

    It's got 95,000 miles and I just tuned up the 4.2L engine last month. The battery is 6 months old and I haven't had any problems with anything since I've owned it & I'm the original owner.

    I just moved from New York (where I bought the vehicle new) to San Antonio about 6 months ago. Any suggestions on where to look?
    3) Don't be long-winded. Try to be as brief as possible.
    To get the most responses, please be as brief as possible while still giving all of the relevant information. Hint, bullet-points like this work well.

    - Vehicle year, make and model.
    - Specific problems or questions you have.
    - How long you have had this issue.
    - Vehicle information like engine type, mileage and vehicle history.

    4) Fill out your Profile, Signature & Avatars - it only take 5 minutes.
    People tend to help those that they know a little bit about, that's just human nature. Consider filling out your Profile, add a Signature and uploading an Avatar and Profile Picture.


    Put basic information about you and your vehicles. (You can even upload a Signature Photo)

    Good Signature Example:
    Steve - Texas
    2006 Chevy Malibu
    2002 Chevy Trailblazer LS
    General information about yourself can be entered in the profile, this can really help people to know you quickly.

    Avatar / Profile Picture
    These are a great way for other users to identify you instantly, just by your avatar. Please consider finding and uploading an avatar today. If you need any help, PM any moderator for assistance.

    5) Search before you ask your question.
    Before you begin, please do a site-search for your topic, it may have been asked before 100 times. You can also go to any specific forum and complete a narrow forum or sub-forum search as well.
