had my first real off roading experience yesterday in my sportrak and loved it, got a bit scary wondering what hit the floor and stuff all the time, turned out it was mainly the tow bar which was a relief, and locking up on a 40% downhill was a bit scary but ill get over it and be there again in a months time i assume
i was wanting to give her a checkover to check nothing is damaged/waterlogged or clogged with mud or anything could anyone give me a checklist of things to check, bearing in mind im not that good with cars i know enough to do basic maintenance but no more. thanks a lot
at one point the engine cut out in water and wouldnt start till we dragged it out and let it sit for 20 mins or so what would cause this? and will being stuck in door deep water for half an hour have damaged anything (other than my amp which was under my seat )?
my handbrake seems a bit weak since being there, could i have snapped the cable or be leaking fluid or somethign or could it just be that the pads / discs are coverd in mud and just need cleaning off
thanks a lot -mike
