There are no dumb questions, but there are questions with insufficient info and those are frustrating to try and answer. Please don't stop asking questions so that others (Newbs as you call them) can benifit from answers, just make your question clear. Like year of car, manual or auto, coupe or sedan, you know stuff like that can influence the answer and sometimes the mood of members.
