Default Searching for Solutions within forum

Why is it that in order to have a successful search for solutions to problems that lie within this forum I have to go outside of the forum and use google with reference to Volvo Forums. I am sorry, but regardless if I need to be schooled on searching or not, this forums search engine is very frustrating to say the least. (I am being nice about this so as not to get kicked off)

Is there anyone out there who can help me crack the code for searching for a topic without tilting this baby?

Thank you,

Don

Well I actually got a few items to pull up on my coolant leak problem. Unfortunately nothing helped or was even close to my problem. Next, I searched in google and was able to find more closely related threads from the forum than what I got while searching in the forum. Amazing.

Yes it is a pain finding things on here. The best way I have been able to find things is after clicking search click on advanced search. That finds things way better than the normal search.
