Fluid Rx Diagnostics Shows True Fluid Condition

For years, automotive repair and oil change facilities had limited methods when it came to convincing car owners it was time to service engine and drivetrain fluids and oils. Those options were the old standard time/mileage formula, “bad” color and odor, or referring to the vehicle’s owner manual. Fluid Rx Diagnostics has changed this paradigm with an easy-to-use chromatographic technology analysis that recommends fluid services based on the actual condition of the fluids.

For years automotive repair and oil change facilities had limited methods when it came to convincing car owners it was time to service engine and drivetrain fluids and oils. Those options were the old standard time/mileage formula, “bad” color and odor, or referring to the vehicle’s owner manual. Fluid Rx Diagnostics, a leader in instant lubricant testing and evaluation, has changed this paradigm with an easy-to-use chromatographic technology analysis that recommends fluid services based on the actual condition of the fluids.

All modern lubricants contain additives that inhibit breakdown. As these additives become depleted, the fluid degrades and is no longer able to perform its intended function. Fluid Rx Diagnostics is a radial planar chromatographic tool that provides a measure of additive depletion and the level of sludge or debris in fluid or oil. The ISO (International Standards Organization) Diagnostics Charts shows how specific fluids appear at various points of depletion on the unique Test Sheet.

Fluid Rx Diagnostics has redesigned, updated and improved its Instant Lubricant Diagnostics kits to provide service personnel and customers alike with a simple on-the-spot evaluation that shows the actual condition of all of the vehicle’s important fluids; including brake, power steering, transmission and transfer case fluids.     

The new Instant Lubricant Diagnostics kit (part #75228-2) makes it easy to identify and transfer sample fluids to the unique Tester Sheet. Conversely, the new diagnostic “Customer Test Result Cards” provide customers with the test results and a record going forward as well as an overview of the technology and benefits of performing needed fluid services. When using patented Fluid Rx Diagnostics technology, the consumer sees what service personnel see, instantly and at the same time. There is no guesswork, and the results are verified within seconds of fluid testing.

“I’m amazed how well the Fluid Rx Diagnostics products work for my franchisees. Even during the recent down economy, the shops that used the Instant Lubricant Diagnostics process greatly benefited,” said Tom McVay, franchise owner and regional director for Quality Tune-Up of California. Many shops that practice honest business ethics continue to weather the storm of negative publicity aimed at fluid exchange. This is where Fluid Rx Diagnostics has helped reinforce shop integrity and bolster customer loyalty.
 
The BAR (California Bureau of Automotive Repair) expects repair facilities to provide full disclosure with a proven method consumers can trust and rely upon. The CalABC (California Automotive Business Coalition), which represents the automotive aftermarket to Government, concluded and published: “Instant Lubricant Diagnostics – the best strategy to identify and recommend vehicle fluid change intervals.” Knowledge is power – Fluid Rx Diagnostics provides both the technician and customer with the information needed to make informed decisions regarding fluid service. Providing Instant Lubricant Test results to consumers ups ticket averages and bolsters customer loyalty and retention.
