I have a 2012 Corolla and tried to remove the electrical connector from the mass air flow sensor (pic. below) for cleaning. It was so difficult to disconnect and I couldn't remove it as I didn't want to force and break something. There is a small tab that I suppose to push down to release the lock a...

Hi, I am considering buying 2018 Rav4 and like some advice on what's the best deal available. I would like to take advantage of the 0.49% financing, and can anyone help on the following?

what

Aside from Togue, who else hosts lapping days? I'm part of Club Wolfsburg so I've joined one of theirs as they partnered with Raser Motorsports and Pinnacle as well. I've been to Mosport DDT and Cayuga so far and prefer Mosport DDT more as it's more technical. PITL seems to be autocross only. I've c...

My 02 Jetta is slowly dying on me. Won't get into details but I'm not confident it would make it to mid summer. I'm eyeing this 2017 Wolfsburg Jetta that's at the dealer near me.

toyota

Did you ever look at Toyota's most affordable car and think, wouldn't it be great if it looked...better? Yes, you'd be paying half of what an Altis costs, but that doesn't mean it has to look 50% less attractive. Well your prayers have been answered. The new Toyota Wigo’s looks belie its cheap price...

used to have a Corolla and like the reliability and the minimal and cheap maintenance of the Toyota brand.

how

Let say that there are 5 cars in front of mine and all are over speeding. I'm the 6th car ( also over speeding). Do cops usually only catch the guy at the front leading or they point the gun at random car? Am I safer if I follow the flow of the traffic?

you

I saw on the gov. website that you can order on line, but can it email me right away or I have to wait for 5 days for them to mail it to me in paper? I am considering buying a motorcycle from a seller 3 hours away. so I can only go tomorrow or next weekend. Anyone has experience with this?

I'm thinking about swapping my (almost useless) stock halogen H16 bulbs for a set of Philips Ultinon 2700k LED, since they have came down in price from when I first looked at them three years ago. They would stay off majority of the time, and probably only used in bad weather like middle of snowstor...
