UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored. At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.
We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations. Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.
It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.
As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Hello everyone, today I was driving on the highway, I have to say I was going fast because I was going late, when I was arriving I started hearing a rattle noise, after I did what I was going to do I came back and started my car and turned the AC on, a very high rattling noise started and I opened the hood to try and listen where it came from, I decided to drive and when I accelerated it felt weak, then turned the ac off and it accelerated "normally" still felt a power loss, Do I need to change the ac compressor? is it expensive? is it a hard job? what tools do I need to change it myself? I have to say, the AC works fine, still blows cold air, but the noise and powerloss is annoying. please help
