Just like every other group of people, blacks, whites, techs, pygmies...they'll be good ones and bad ones.

I have no idea why you're on this FSR kick and seem convinced it's at fault. Is there something you're not telling us and you messed around with the FSR/related circuitry in the past and are now having problems? Otherwise drop it as your "most likely suspect" unless you can show reason to believe it is. So far you haven't done that.
Here I go again doling out free advise which others will use to their benefit thus dropping my earnings more... it's the curse of being a considerate good person I guess... maybe I should stop posting on this site and become a leech on everyone elses intellectual property and only use it for my benefit. Damn those idiot techs.
The guys here heap on the bad techs--some think they're all bad and rip off artists, and evidently some are!
I have written often about finding a local indy that you can trust and work with. I can't move now because I've found mine!
You might not know this, but I've told my mechanic that if I ever become gay and he does too...well, nevermind!
Cars are very complicated, and many here know that, and love their mechanics...and I agree, the good ones are good at many things!
