The turbocharger stopped working on my 2009 Audi A4. Can the car function without it, and is it being damaged by being driven? – GabriellaYour turbocharger is a turbine/fan device driven by the engine's exhaust gases, devised to boost the pressure of the incoming air into the engine. This pressure boost is referred to as "forced induction" and is used to improve engine efficiency and power output.
I have a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup truck and when I switch the control from dashboard air circulation to defrost position, I get a squeaky rumble sound. The noise also occurs when switching to floor circulation from any other position. Any suggestions or explanations as to why this happens? – PaulPositioned behind the truck's dashboard is the heating and air conditioning unit (HVAC) housing the heater core and air conditioning evaporator.
I have a 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5L, 152,000 kilometres, with a CVT Transmission which lately has been behaving abnormally. Sometimes it seems stuck in low first gear, not up-shifting as I accelerate away, with the revs going way up to almost 4,000 rpm. Other times it gets stuck in high sixth gear at low speeds, resulting in noticeable vibrations and bogging down on acceleration. I've had it looked at, but they said 'no codes came up' and had a flush done too. Any ideas?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
