Cars need to be looked after to get the best driving experience from them. Most of the time, we focus on the vital moving parts which affect vehicle performance on the road. However, every once in a while, we all want to pamper up the...

Whether you're driving mostly off-road or in inner-city areas, a pickup truck is a powerful vehicle that offers the utmost performance in both situations. A powerful pickup truck just like your Triton is capable of doing so much. Its size is what makes it a lot safer than regular hatchbacks, coupes, and sedans. The Triton is also known for its high ground clearance which allows to not only climb over big obstacles bit traverse through water crossings more easily.

It’s easy to consider the time we spend in our cars as inconsequential. However, the stats and the palpable effects resulting from it speak for themselves. Comfort and safety go hand in hand even though their connection is not as direct. This is especially true for long haul journeys. Not to speak about off road adventures along unpaved surfaces. So, if you haven’t done so already, make sure you make your passenger cabin as comfortable as possible. Yes, keeping your vital parts like brakes , engine and tires in check is very important, but don’t forget about the silent killers which follow you every single day.

Can you feel the brake pedal pulsing or your brakes squealing when you press the brake pedal on your Ford Focus? If the answer is yes, then your brake pads are probably worn down and need to be replaced. Modern auto brake systems have come a long way, and no matter whether your Focus has an older, mechanically-operated brake drum and shoe system or a newer computer-controlled ABS system, you'll probably need to replace most of your brake components.

In 2006 the first Range Rover Sport made its debut and this was at a time when the demand for SUVs was constantly growing. That first model had the same chassis as Discovery but with a different body. This model lasted until 2009 when the second iteration of the Sport was introduced which lasted until 2013. This was a performance oriented upgrade that also included a discreet face lift. The 2014 Range Rover Sport had up to 75% of its parts changed and it also had a bold and progressive exterior. The model had a more angled windscreen and a sloping roofline.

When you take your Toyota Surf for a routine service, such as a tune-up or oil change, the mechanic will probably also take a look at the air filter. The air filter, although a small and seemingly unimportant part, is crucial for ensuring your engine has all the clean and cool air it needs to operate optimally. There are many reasons why the air filter might need to be replaced, but one thing is for sure - it does need to be replaced regularly, on average every 50.000kms or so. This is just a rough estimate, and the type of driving you typically do is what really matters. But before I talk about how often you should do it and what the signs of a faulty Toyota Surf air filter are, let's see what air filters do, and what type of aftermarket air filters you can find when looking for a replacement.

Starting from the late 1800s and onwards, motorcycles have advanced a lot, from hydraulic forks and multi-cylinder engines to ABS braking, RBW throttling and electronic fuel injection. All these fancy terms and more, have made motorcycles more sophisticated than ever, both on paper and on the road. With so much functionality on board, problems are bound to occur and it is often the main components that are being affected the most.

Many drivers usually pay a significant amount of attention to their car's engine and tend to neglect the components under their automobile. One such commonly neglected part is the exhaust tip. And although exhaust tips don't “do” anything in particular when it comes to your vehicle's horsepower and torque, they are added as the cherry on top of your cake (as a garnishment), as well as for improving the sound that your car makes. As with all exhaust parts, tips also come in a variety of styles each having its own unique sound. If you are not sure what type of tip will be the best fit for your vehicle, here's a short explanation of the different types. angle exhaust tip
