Default Need help with search feature

What do I need to do to search for a specific string here on BC?

I want to search for "bad oil pump" all words, in that order. But when I try I get 442 hits for each individual word. I tried using "and" lower case and in caps between the words. Couldn't figure out how to underline like shown.

What am I missing / doing wrong?

[edit: maybe it is not possible to search for a string?]

I don't know if the search feature is screwy or what, but I seem to have better luck searching for a string when I select the "Search for all terms" option. I know it'* backwards, but I swear it works.
