The Basics Of Vehicular Fluids

Fluids help lubricate our vehicles, keep internal parts from breaking down too fast, and regulate temperature. Without them, our vehicles wouldn’t have as many features as they do today, and they just might not operate, either.

Radiator fluid regulates the temperature of your engine, as its internal parts rotate, revolve, and bounce up and down several thousand times per minute. Be careful to not operate your vehicle when checking it, as it’s pressurized.

Dodge’s New Color Palette Set to Wow in 2017

Dodge’s upcoming new color palette didn’t come from a tedious corporate group. Instead, about a dozen people spent an afternoon brainstorming and throwing ideas at a color wall.

“Dodge has this awesome history to pull from with color,” said head of Dodge design, Mark Trostle. “It’s been very successful over the years with names like B5 Blue and Plum Crazy.
