The Build: How to Check Your Oil, Tire Pressure
We're starting things off real simple.
Hopefully, you're enjoying our video accounts on The Build, as Ben Preston ably restores and retrofits our Toyota Landcruiser. Not everyone is tackling a rusty, rusty Toyota truck, though. So, The Drive sent out video crew to the garage in order to grab footage that might be helpful to less enterprising (foolish) drivers. The first two videos in our "How To" series are simple: how to check tire pressure and oil. Though these are both easy undertakings, having even tire pressure and a properly-lubricated engine are two of the most important ways to keep yourself and your engine safe. Even in a new car, leaks spring and tires leak. Best to keep ahead of chance.
