The all-new 2014 Kawasaki Teryx shatters the two-seat Side x Side mold with a new larger chassis, a significant overall power boost, and premium FOX Podium high-performance shocks. Add-in an all-new new larger cockpit and an enhanced cargo bed and you get a bigger, bolder package that pushes the Teryx’s performance, handling, comfort and utility to new levels. Whether tackling a tough job or a rough trail, the new Teryx delivers like no other Side x Side in its class.
Kawasaki engineers collaborated with FOX to fit the Teryx with the ultimate high-performance FOX Podium shocks, which are adjustable for spring preload and 24-way compression damping, to tailor the ride to the terrain. As always, Kawasaki and FOX incorporated a dual-mode design ideology so the adjustable FOX Podium coil-over shocks provide everything from cruising comfort with two passengers and a full cargo bed to sport-style bump absorption when driven solo. It’s a difficult combination to get right, but the FOX Podium shocks get the job done by maintaining consistent fade-free damping in all driving conditions.
With all 10 teams now announced, Formula E is ready for its inaugural season to begin in September, 2014
Venturi Grand Prix, a joint venture between Monaco-based Venturi Automobiles and famed US actor Leonardo DiCaprio, is the 10th and final team to announce its participation in the inaugural season of Formula E racing. Organized by the FIA, the same group responsible for Formula 1 and the World Rally Championship, the all-electric competition is designed to attract fans of more environmentally friendly vehicles to the thrills and spills of high-speed competition. DiCaprio underlines the importance of "fuel-efficient, clean-energy vehicles," which he considers to be "key to our planet's future."
DiCaprio adds his name to a distinguished list of participants that includes a similarly psyched-up Richard Branson and his own Virgin Racing team. Branson believes Formula E will provide an exciting showcase for electric vehicles, while the competitive design element between the varying teams should spur innovation in the development of better and more efficient EVs. With the two well-known names serving as ambassadors and a selection of other respected teams like Audi Sport and Andretti Autosport, the future of electric racing looks set for a bright beginning.
Changing the filter on a fuel-injected vehicle can be tricky. On fuel-injected vehicles, you need to disable
the fuel pump to relieve the pressure on the fuel lines, which may be secured to the filter with clamps,
threaded fittings, or special quick-connect fittings. Lines with threaded fittings require a special flare-nut
line wrench. Lines with special quick-connect fittings may require special tools to disconnect them. Ask the
clerk at an auto parts store or the service department at your dealership which type of filter your vehicle
If doing this infrequent job requires purchasing special tools, it’s probably cheaper to have it done by a
technician. If not, the first thing you need to do is find the filter. Your owner’s manual should show you
where your fuel filter is and whether there’s more than one on your vehicle. If it doesn’t, ask someone in
the service department at your dealership or consult a service manual for your vehicle’s make, model, and
year. (Although it’s a good idea to own one, you can usually find these manuals at your local library.)
If your engine has fuel-injection, your fuel filter is located somewhere in the high-pressure fuel line, either
under the vehicle near the fuel tank as shown here:
In most newer, fuel-injected vehicles, the air filter is found inside a rectangular box called a cold air
collector box. The air filter is usually close to the front of the vehicle, near the inside of one of the
fenders. Air that’s scooped up by the front of the vehicle moves through an air intake tube into the air
filter inside the box.
