Most car owners understand that they will need to replace the friction pads on their vehicle from time to time. These small parts will, after all, wear down every single time that they apply the brakes in an effort to slow down the discs and decelerate each wheel.

Australia is a huge continent that requires thousands upon thousands of trucks operating around the clock to deliver, re-supply and pick up all the items that keep the country running smoothly. From food to mining equipment, Australia runs on the backs of the many truck drivers and companies that put in long hours to ensure everything is delivered on time.

The air conditioning system fitted within your car or truck is, essentially, a miniature version of the same system that you find at home. It relies on a number of different components to work together, but most of the heavy lifting takes place within the compressor and condenser.

That would be too good to be true, of course, but in the meantime, stranded motorists need a way of moving their stricken vehicle to the expert.

It goes without saying that the brake fluid in your car is a critical component. You may know that it is a very carefully engineered product, which is designed to put up with harsh conditions without failure so that you can keep everyone in the car as safe as possible. Yet not every brake fluid is the same, and if you drive your high-performance car a lot, you need to be careful to choose the right product.

Every vehicle that relies on a form of combustion must ensure that the fuel is delivered as efficiently as possible for uninterrupted motoring. This is particularly important in a diesel-engined vehicle due to the conversion process, and it's not surprising, therefore, that issues can arise from time to time. If you've noticed some inconsistencies in certain driving environments recently, how can you diagnose the issue so that you can fix the offending item?
