    Shifting While In Low Range

    guys is it safe / ok to shift while your in low range when using 4x4 , specially when u need torque and speed at the same time.. i was under the impression the low range was ideal only for 1st and reverse only...appreciate ur thoughts and comments..

(lol at least for me) ive seen some proper done up ones and they look damn sexy . the hard part will be finding a 2 door mk1. theres plenty of 4 doors around but its just not the same.

    Whats The Best Engine For A Ford Escort

    of course i know what a escort mexico is my friend , i know my share of history about escorts , looool , its practically impossible to find an engine like that in SL , and if ur lucky u might find one in UK for about 7000 pounds , (just for the engine ) so do u think its viable to bring it down to Sl . knowing about cars and being practical is two different things.

    Whats The Best Engine For A Ford Escort

    i checked out the engines that devinda has mentioned , both of them looks really good . the question is will it be possible to find them in SL with the tranny, intact.. and what abt the modifications to the rear axel and the brakes..

    I just wanted a reliable 7 seater , with off road capabilities , not that ill be doing extreme off roading with it. I don't wanna go for a tipical 4wd VAN , if u have a suggestion for any other vehicle , I'd really appreciate it (my budget is 3.2 mil)

    Mitsubishi Space Gear 4Wd

    i think its pretty good off road too....some videos on utube are amazing.. but as u said spare parts might be a problem..maybe thats why not much of them are around....
  18. Guys I'm having problems with a 04 swift , it has developed Problem in down shifting . Whenever it needs to down shift specially from 4th to 3rd and 3rd to 2nd it takes a long time and the engine revs to the max before it finally changes , and I started getting a an intermittent check engine indication. Showed the car to many mechanics but no luck so far . I'm thinking of taking it to the dealers for a check up, but any advise y'all can provide regarding this is highly appriciated. Cheers

    Suzuki Swift Transmission Problem

    well they have taken the car for a trans oil change , and the EXPERT who did it has only changed the oil and not the filter , saying there's no requirement to change the filter , the car has about 90000 km on it and i think this is the first time the oil was changed. im not in the country at the moment so cant do much about it. i think trans oil and filter should be changed evry 40000 or so...do u think changing filter might help this.... appreciate ur opinion.
