Oil Changes and Tyre Pressures

Howdy folks! My name is Tony and this is my latest blog. For some time, I have been trying to think of what my new blog should be about. It was yesterday when I realised that the topic had been in front of me all along. The biggest thing I have learnt recently is how to service my car. I didn't believe in auto servicing.

What 4 Wheel Drive Transmission Controls Mean and When to Engage It

Some people buy 4-wheel drive trucks with the intention of realizing the full potential of the vehicle. However, some individuals buy 4-wheel drive vehicles without the slightest of intentions of taking the car off-road. If you are in the latter group, my guess is you just like the idea of switching between 2WD and 4WD for the fun of it. While there is nothing wrong with how you decide to put your car to use, you must wonder what functions the many controls in your 4WD hold. Read More
