    Best car for Towing Caravans or Trailers?

    You need something with loads of torque and something with a bit of weight, I'd say a diesel would work quite well. The Skoda Yeti is a good bet, but most exec saloons would be up to the job. Light cars would not have the power to pull, would be subject to jackknifing more easily, and would...

    Perodua Myvi sport 1.3 engine fault!!

    Automatic Transmission - Drain or Flush when Brown?

    Laughing gas thru the Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI 140hp 2009mod .?.

    It is very possible, you'll need to increase the fuelling and the easiest way is fit an injector in the air intake just after the AFM, do check it is legal to do this in your area, because often Nitrous isn't road legal. You'll also need some kind of regulator on the additional fuelling to...

    6 Speed in a corsa C??

    That sounds like a good project, but you really have your work cut out doing all of that. Mapping is the most important thing to setup and get right.

    It is funny how different areas and different times of the day will affect drivers attitudes.

    Timing belts

    I go by the 5 years 70,000 miles rule of thumb, the manufacturers are usually more relaxed than this but it's not something you want to take chances with.
