I've always gone on the fact that the cooling fan is running after the engine is switched off (which i try to avoid), But is there any other way of telling.

Re: Red Key Symbol on dash on attempted Emergency Start & Thoughts on Start/Stop effect on Main Battery Lifetime

Re: Brake fluid level

DOT 4... Check to make sure there are no leaks in the system. Fluid Level drops with brake pad wear.

Re: tyre speed ratings

Don't forget the general ruling of all major tyre manufacturers is that if you are only fitting two tyres then you need to fit them to the rear i.e. in your case it means switching the current rears to the front and put the new tyres on the rear. This is irrespective of whether the car is front / r...
