As in the case of many analogies, that which you used ["...looking up the
tailpipe (of your truck) and telling that it has a bad piston."] is not a very
good one.  Many engine problems can be diagnosed by "looking up the
tailpipe"...and seeing whether there is a discharge of water vapor,
oil-associated smoke, etc.  Likewise, one can, strangely enough, diagnose
engine problems by "listening" via a long screwdriver held to the wall of the
cylinder head.

I think Albert Santos III's E-Mail is well-directed.  Perhaps your responses
have become too Pavlovian.
