Firstly, welcome to the forum!

A couple of quick tips to help you on your way:

Location - entering your location can help a great deal, as you may be only a few streets/miles/km away from help if you need a second pair of eyes on a problem.

The "Search" function - give it a go! There stands a chance that if you have a problem or techincal query that it might have been answered previously. Please be aware that words such as "Chassis", "Suspension" and "Engine" will provide a lot of results, but may not be of help. Please be a bit more specific, and use the word "AND" to refine your search results. Something like "cold AND start AND problem" may lead you to a thread on setting the autochoke correctly on a cold morning, which might just asnwer your question

"Sticky" threads - at the top of some sections, you will find "Sticky" threads; ones which have a lot of very useful information that it has been felt is worthy of keeping at the top of that section (sort of an FAQ list). Some are guidance for that section/topic, others may be classed as announcements (like terms and conditions for the Marketplace sections).

There's no such thing as a daft question - and no-one on here will berate you for asking what might seem a simple question (i.e. which spark plugs) - you may get directed to the owners manual, but there might be a better suggestion from experience/modern technology.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
