The Differences Between Rear-Wheel-Drive and Front-Wheel-Drive

When you are first considering buying a new vehicle, you probably know the size and style you like the best. However, it is equally important to decide if you need a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or front-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicle. But what are the differences between the two?

Is Your Engine Overheating?

Having your vehicle’s cooling system inspected regularly can save you money. The cooling system is responsible for removing built-up heat. If the engine is allowed to get hot, parts will begin to break.

Pistons that become hot start to expand, and once they do, they can not fit in the cylinders. The pistons will rub and scrape the cylinders. Overheating damages both the pistons and cylinders.
