Re: What oil u using in ur diesel van?

I think that is to avoid oil coking in the bearings. There is definitely a higher possibility of it happening with conventional oil but it usually only happens if you don't allow the turbo to cool down after spirited driving. My turbo and exhaust manifold while hot after driving are a lot cooler by ...

Re: What oil u using in ur diesel van?

I believe the different oil brands are splitting hairs at this point. No brand is really any better than the other, most of the additives are the same and if one brand isn't using it; if there is a market they soon will. They are all designed to meet or exceed their targeted spec and as far as I'm c...

Re: Defective tyres

Braking performance actually gets better as tyres wear down, at the same time the majority of braking force is handled at the front; if you rotate regularly you will have less braking performance than someone who never rotated and has slightly more worn front tyres( up to a point obviously). Slight...

Re: Defective tyres

For all-wheel drive vehicles and 4 x 4 use, a uniform tread depth on all tires lowers the stress on the drivetrain. For me, that is important. If you have specific reasons as listed above for not doing rotations and it works for you, then no worries. This was taken from Bridgestone's website: "...

Re: Defective tyres

I do tyre rotations every 10,000 km or so. I used to do it much less often before with my NZE141, but now with the T32 X-trail, I try to do it more often. Be careful when purchasing tires though. I purchased some Bridgestone Potenza G III tyres some time ago. Two of them wore unevenly after a few m...

Re: *** The official car accident thread***

Accidents high-lighted all seem to result from a lack understanding of the present road conditions. To not have the convenience of your vehicle because of a unwillingness to slow down is just silly and the less said about expenses and in some case pain the better. I always wonder if the people shoo...
