    Ford & Mazda Re: Trailblazer cooling

    If I accept my measured parameters quoted, then the opening up of the dummy grill on my Chevy had a huge impact. We did a day-trip to Kruger today. The return trip from Malelane to Barberton was in...

    There is only one thing that makes a car go forward, and that is kW. Torque is only one of the variables in the kW formula (kW = Nm x rpm x konstant).
    The interesting aspect of your post is that the...

    Re: Changing tire size

    Only 0.5% smaller. Not noticeable.
    Less width, rubber on the road and weight is likely to give you better fuel consumption.
    Not sure what the tyres will look like on the rims, or on the car.
  5. Re: Advise / information is the 4x4 drive chain on my TB not working

    It's difficult to judge without having seen it.
    1) it doesn't seem right. My Blazer is happy to handle axle twisters like you explain.
    2) I assume your 2016 Z71 is a facelift model, like mine. I...

    Re: Ford Everest 2.0 Bi-Turbo Issues

    I don't agree.
    My wife hates the collision warning. I have mine set at maximum distance and it does, every now and then, shout at me. She wants me to turn it off, because she catches a fright when...

    Sorry, I completely missed this post.
    There is actually a big difference in dashboard across the facelift.
    If you want to change, why don't you see if a OneNav will work for you. I think the Isuzu...

  21. Re: Automatic gearboxes and towing heavy loads

    My personal opinion:
    Not all gearboxes were created equal and not all driving styles and loads are equal. Bad or "inconsiderate" driving habits won't break your gearbox or engine, it is just placing...

    Something wrong! Life isn't that fair. You can't have a nice engine and low fuel consumption.

    Re: Amarok V6 questions

    When I bought my Golf GTi 16V in 1989, VW's motto at the time was "engineering under the skin". This V6 bakkie by VW takes that motto to the next level. I'm sure one will come your way.
