How often should I have my transmission fluid changed?
Do you happen to know where I might be able to find some "girlie" accessories for my truck? I am really looking for a pink bow tie emblem and some other exterior items to personalize my truck. Thanks for your help, Gina
Sometimes the gear shift (I have an automatic) sticks in park and I cannot press the button in to get it to move into any other gear.
