The abominable Snoman is a large hairy bubba like creature associated
with the seldom snow covered regions of the Ohio between Indiana and
Pennsylvania. He is also known as Snojob, Snoboy, idiot, and many foul
names. One would think the sightings of the Abominable Snoman are rare
but sadly that is not the case. The Abominable Snoman avidly makes his
presents well known in many groups.
Some of these groups are:
The Snoman can exceed 300 post in one months time. That's more than
10 post per day which one can conclude that the Snoman has no life
outside of the internet. One would think with such extensive amounts of
post in automotive related groups that the Snoman would have an
extensive background in automotive service and repair. However some
simple research into the Snomans background quickly proves otherwise.
Taking the advice of the Abominable Snoman is done at your own risk.
You put your money, your vehicle, and your life on the line with a
creature that has no background in automotive technology. The Snoman
will often reference objects with little correlation to modern vehicles,
such as his 50+ year old John Deere tractor to back up his off the wall
claims on coolant. The Snoman has no regard for the pH balance, freeze
protection, or boiling point requirements for modern automobiles as the
Snoman simply relies on the visual appearance of the coolant in a 50+
year old tractor.
The Snoman is also a big conundrum in the sense that the Snoman will
rant with claims of the oil industry price gouging but at the same time
pointlessly recommend the higher priced higher octane gas for vehicles
that do no require nor benefit from it. And where does the Snoman come
up with the facts that this will improve HP and gas mileage? From non
other than the Snoman himself. A simple Google search would turn up many
first hand sources clearly stating that higher octane gas has often hurt
their gas mileage and shown harder cold start issues in vehicles not
rated for it. (We still await his answer on where the knock sensor is on
a RAM V10.)
The Snoman is a very dangerous beast. Just one example of the dangers
of the Snoman is his promoting the use of hydrocarbons in Mobile Air
Conditioning Systems. Anyone with real experience in the MACS field can
tell you how very dangerous the use of hydrocarbons can be. The
explosive state of hydrocarbons in the AC system can very well take
someone's life. But this has not deterred the Snoman the least bit as
his claims that tetrofluoroethane (only known as r134a to a layman such
as him) is somehow more hazardous to human health.
The Snoman also continuously makes some interesting and clearly
hypocritical statements which make no sense at all.
Here is but one example of such a post
"You are to only BoZo here. giving the wrong advise just
because you like to hear yourself talk. Get a life"
Clearly the Snoman was wrong and for some reason wanted to remain
wrong instead of admitting his error. This flies in the face of what he
"When I am clearly in error I will admit it while others
do not so they are never wrong in their mind anyway."
That has yet to happen after a countless number of errors. One would
think that the Snoman has a severe case of alzheimer's or an advance
case of syphilis. If this were the case it would explain many things.
In closing as long as the Snoman is not taken seriously the risk to
ones life is minimal. However great effort must be taken to ensure that
none of the Snomans statements are ever taken seriously. This would
sound like a great deal of work but the work is entertaining do to the
ever so slow dim-witted nature of the Snoman.

Man, as I've said a thousand times over "everyone is entitled to their
opinion, including Snoman.
All points of view whether completely inane or sheer genius should be
welcomed without ridicule in here. It is up to the individual to
decide if any point of view has merit.
To mock an individual simply for having a different aspect on
automotive repair is lacking in good taste and is utterly demeaning.
If you don't agree with his opinions then agree to disagree and leave
it be. Kindness and respect of others, should be the order of the day.
Until it puts someone at risk of injury. Did you bother to read any of
that? Do some research.
HC's in the ac system isnt inane, its insane!
I didnt start this with snoman. Snoman came out of the blue one day and
started shit with every reg in the group I was in. He was trying to be
the alpha male or some shit which doesnt fly there. He tried to tear
down our post on proper repairs and such with his off the wall
disinformation. I can tell you this, the mocking and name calling did
NOT start from our end.
Kindness and respect has to be earned in my book. The day Snoman showed
up he done a thorough job of bankrupting all of that by showing no
respect to anyone. He thought he had all of the answers...He had none to
As others are saying, an "opinion" is welcome. Just state
that it's simply "an opinion" and all will be well. But when
you answer posts and you answer with incorrect information,
that needs to be addressed.
"simply a different aspect"? Come on, it's incorrect information...not
quite the same thing.
I agree with Steve...
Everyone is entitled their opinion.
If what is being told is dangerous than I would agree. With brain surgery,
but that is not what we are talking here.
I value what everyone has to say. Except flamers, and after a few of those,
I just use the "Block Sender". Why can't you use it against Snoman if you
have such a problem with what is said.

It is my opinion that Snoman should be flamed each and every time
he posts incorrect information.
It is also my opinion that flaming his spelling errors should be
Why, because you can't comprehend the potential for loss of life
or property? Since when should whether something is potentially
dangerous be restricted to brain surgery only?
If you happen to look out the window and notice your neighbors
house on fire, do you;
a) Call the fire department and report it?
b) Close the curtains and hide under the bed?
c) Stand outside and cheer the person running away with a gas can
d) Pop open a Schlitz, stand on your front porch and holler to
the firemen "git-r-done?"

Hey....Jeep...man! Check out this thread and tell me
how great your Snoman is.
This one: Re: 90 suburban, 5.7 tbi; hesitation with backfire
Wow! He's the man when it comes to correct technical
How many have your owned???? I own a 89 since new wise a$$ which is
same as a 90 and I know how it works because I have had it apart. You
can beleive what you want but believing does not make it so.
Are you for real? Throw your 1989 Chilton manual in the trash and stop
playing with the big boys here who have had EVERY SINGLE YEAR of chevy
trucks in their bays! TBI trucks do NOT have mechanical advance
distributors in them you moron! We dont give a shit what your 89 had! We
are talking about a 1990! They are not the same, pull your head out of
your ass! They had both Carbs and TBI in 89 but in 1990 they had
THROTTLE BODY INJECTION only! Thats what TBI stands for you retard. Does
your truck have TBI? NOT LIKELY! Wow not the same now is it!?!?
Now admit you are wrong and admit you are a dumbass. If you dont every
post of yours I see I am going to reply to with a link to this thread!
Every thread you screw up on from here on out will be added to the list!
Oh, you've had it apart. That explains it!
You couldn't get it running again so you shitcanned the EFI,
slapped a carburetor and mechanical distributor in it to get it
running but forgot to mention those subtle details.
Anyone (even you) can find a picture of a TBI distributor online
and clearly see that there is no mechanical advance provision in
