However, many overlook one special part that is as important as any other main component. That part is called the serpentine belt.

View the diagram above to get a better understanding of how the serpentine belt works. The belt transfers power through pulleys from the engines crankshaft and any other components or pumps mounted on the engine. In some vehicles the belt can also be guided by an idler pulley ...[more]

We are going to outline a few tips everyone should be aware of with all terrain vehicles that are equipped with all terrain tires. Trucks and sport utility vehicles are extremely popular, so we know how important it is to everyone that these vehicles are taken care of correctly.
Tip 1: The most common way a tire wears out, is by quickly braking or slamming on your brakes. It’s best to avoid sudden braking as much as you can. Only brake like this if it’s an absolute must. Instead, simply step on your brakes steadily and in a slow manner. This actually preserves the tire but also helps with fuel efficiency. Slamming on the brakes is a great way to eat up the fuel in your vehicle like an angry monster.

A highly important factor in ensuring the longevity of your tires is maintaining proper wheel alignment. A car with proper wheel alignment will give a smooth and comfortable ride that will be vibration-free and void of any drifting that can occur, when wheel alignment is incorrect.
When a car is being aligned, it is actually the suspension that is being tuned and not the wheels and tires. However, it is important how your car's wheels and tires are directed and angled in the end. There are four main parts to a proper wheel alignment: the caster, the camber, the toe, and the ride height:
Caster - Caster angle or is the angular displacement from the vertical axis of the suspension of a steered wheel in a car, bicycle or other vehicle, measured ...[more]
