The intake valves are operated by electro-hydraulic solenoids giving the engine infinitely variable valve timing -stroke by stroke - cylinder by cylinder. The engine is tuned to deliver maximum fun to drive characteristics meaning great low end torque along with substantial high rpm horsepower. This is done while achieving excellent fuel economy and the required low emissions.

A dispute between two brothers over an oil change led to gunfire that damaged a Little Rock home Thursday afternoon, police say. Shortly before 4:30 p.m., officers were called to a residence in the 8400 block of Edwina Drive, where the 37-year-old resident said he had been arguing with his brother earlier in the day. The man said the 33-year-old was angry with him because he would not let him use his garage to change the oil in his vehicle. The brother left, and later the 37-year-old received a call from his mother telling him to call 911 because the 33-year-old was coming back to shoot up the house, according to the report. He was still on the phone when he heard gunshots, the homeowner said. He said he dropped to the floor until the shooting stopped. Police noted four bullet holes in the home. Officers located and towed the brother's pickup, a bronze 2011 Ford F-150, which had a shell casing inside, the report states. The suspect was named in the report, but the 33-year-old did not … [Read more...] about Police: Oil change argument led to gunfire that damaged Arkansas home
As part of its efforts to educate motorists about the importance of preventative vehicle maintenance, the Car Care Council has released a new video titled, “It’s Time for an Oil Change.” Produced in conjunction with AutoNetTV Media (ANTV), the new video discusses the why, when and where to have an oil change performed, including: Why – Oil lubricates the moving parts of the engine and changing the oil keeps the engine clean. When – The video suggests checking the vehicle’s owner’s manual for recommended oil change intervals. Where – An oil changed performed by a professional technician at an independent repair shop is a quick and low cost vehicle service. “Performing oil changes at the routine intervals outlined in the owner’s manual is one of the least expensive, yet effective, ways to keep an engine running at peak performance and extend the life of the vehicle,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. … [Read more...] about Importance of Oil Changes Highlighted In New Video from Car Care Council
