Light the Fire: Understanding the Spark Plug

There are likely few people in the world who would compare themselves to Thor, God of Thunder, whenever they flip a light switch, but they have every right to do so. At the slightest flick of our finger, we call upon electricity to enter the room and be held in stasis within glass prisons for the benefit of our illumination. And when we grow tired of the light? We simply flick our fingers once [...]

Hitting the 100,000 Mile Marker

There are certain milestones by which we can chart our life as a driver: receiving our learning permit and later, our first license; purchasing our first vehicle with our own money; the first time we are pulled over and given a speeding ticket; the first time we take a ride with our children, bringing them home from the hospital. All of these experiences add mileage to our experience as drivers and, in a more [...]

Know Your Transmission: Learning the Difference Between Automatic and Manual

Ever since our earliest days, we have been searching for our tribe; a group that we can call a family or a community; a flock to fly with, that will offer companionship and protection. In the days of antiquity, these groups were literal tribes that formed our hunting parties and comprised our village. Today, we still look for like-minded people by which to categorize ourselves, like asking someone what their Hogwarts House is, or [...]

Best Starter Cars for the Newly Licensed

There is nothing quite like handing a set of car keys to a newly licensed teenager. We hope that they have paid attention during the classroom lessons, that they took seriously the frank discussions about respecting the power and lethality of the vehicle, and that they don’t allow excitement to overtake their reason while out on the road. There is a profound element of trust that every parent must exercise﹘one that we certainly appreciated [...]

Today’s Luxury, Tomorrow’s Standard

The world of car innovation design is a fast-moving one, in which features that were dreamt of as luxuries only five years ago are now standard in most new vehicles. For instance, a Business Insider article from 2016 had the prescient perspective to write about new-fangled features that were currently only available in high-end luxury vehicles. Such features included Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, and blind-spot detection. With the standardization of these features, chances [...]

Engine System Basics

Modern engine systems literally drive much of the world forward. The engines we are familiar with are a result of innovation and refinement over a long period of time. All the way back in 1698, British inventor Thomas Savery patented a machine designed to draw water from flooded mines using the pressure of steam. Using the same technology, steam engines were soon after introduced to the world. A steam engine is a thermal engine [...]

Still Haven’t Tuned Up Your Car? Now’s the Time!

We’ve all been there. One day our car is running smoothly and efficiently, somewhere down the line the vehicle starts running with a bit of trouble, but nothing you feel too alarmed about. Then, “out of nowhere” our vehicle has some major issues that cause it to run rough or not at all.

Is it Time for an Oil Change?

Most vehicle owners follow one of three processes when it comes to changing the oil in their vehicles. Commonly, the yellow light may come on in their dashboard, warning the driver that the life of the oil has come to an end. Whether you’re one to refresh or change your oil before that warning light even turns on, or wait it out until your vehicle has reached well over the mileage number on your [...]
