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. I thought it was the kind of thing people talked about but never did just so they seemed smart. Well, I didn't feel very smart when I broke down at the side of the road. The mechanic was kind enough to teach me all of the top tricks about how to maintain a car.

The Most Common Types of Car Repairs You Should Prepare For

Any motorist out there knows that car repairs can be expensive, especially when they come at unexpected times. It is surprising how many motorists rely on their cars on a daily basis to go to work, school or other important places, and yet they tend to take very little care of their machines. There are several common car repairs that you can be sure will need to be carried out at some time or another. Read More 

How to Understand Those Strange Noises from the Back of Your Car

If you own a car for any reasonable length of time, you will get to know its idiosyncrasies quite well. You will be used to all the different noises it makes, the odd strange smell here and there and how it performs generally.

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
