Default How do I search combo words (word +2nd word) ?

If I type in "differential fluid" the search engine pulls in all posts with ONLY differential and ONLY fluid.
I want to search posts with ONLY "differential fluid" in the posts.
This way I eliminate other stuff.
How can I do this?
After searching 18 pages , I gave up on the above search and just asked my question.
Thanks for your help

you can put it in quotes..."differential fluid" that will return all posts that include the phrase "differential fluid" and also return threads that contain just "differential" and "Fluid" within the same post.

Here are some good advanced search examples:

apple banana Find posts that contain at least one of these words

+apple +juice Find posts with both words

+apple -juice Find posts with 'apple' but not 'juice'

apple* Find posts with 'apple' and/or 'applesauce'

"Some Words" Find posts with the phrase 'some words of wisdom', 'some words' but not 'some noise words'
