  • 4 Signs You Need Your Parking Brake Cable Repaired or Replaced

    Most modern vehicles have electronic parking brakes. All you need to do is push a button on your dashboard or centre console to have the parking brakes engaged. However, those behind the wheel of slightly older cars will probably have a manual handbrake. A handbrake handle in the cabin is connected to a handbrake cable that runs to the vehicle's back wheels. Handbrake cables are made out of metal, which means they will deteriorate over time no matter what you do.

  • What You Should Do If Your Car Finally Gives up the Ghost

  • Is Your Turbo Failing? Find Out

    Motor Crazy - Tracking An  Obsession With Motor Vehicles

    Welcome to my little road on the web. I'm Sara Rowley and I'm simply crazy about motor vehicles and driving! I have taken my family of four boys all the way from Townsville to the Cape. We also followed the path of Burke and Wills to the Dig Tree. Of course, I've garnered a little bit of knowledge about vehicles and how they operate. There aren't many mechanics on the Strzelecki Track! However, I mostly avoid problems by getting advice from experts and finding the best maintenance services to keep my vehicles in tip-top shape. Consequently, my friends and family are always picking my brain about where to go when they want to buy a new vehicle or get repair work done. I thought it would be useful to keep this blog so that everyone who loves motor vehicles can share their joy and knowledge.
