Snap-on Tool Of The Month: New Generation VERDICT Diagnostic And Information System

With the new generation of the VERDICT diagnostic and information system, the ultimate diagnostic tool just got even better. Snap-on has enhanced the broad capabilities to make it easier and faster for professional technicians to find the root cause to any problem and get accurate results that they can be confident with. Updates include a two-year warranty for confidence, security and long-term support, plus upgraded hardware and an improved BIOS for faster, uninterrupted operation.

“With the new generation of the Snap-on VERDICT, a whole world of possibilities is open to technicians,” said Mark Schaefer, director of marketing, Snap-on Diagnostics. “We listened to our customers and updated our innovative diagnostic and information system based on their suggestions to make the tool work the way they do, giving them diagnostics on their terms.”

A wireless scope, keyless scanner and Windows display unit and Wi-Fi Internet access give technicians the freedom to move around the vehicle while viewing live scan and scope results for advanced testing made simple. VERDICT puts everything in the technician’s hands from anywhere in the shop: codes, live data, component tests, Troubleshooter, web resources and real-world answers. Even access the optional ShopKey Repair Information System for the information that is needed to complete the repair.

Here’s what makes VERDICT uniquely flexible:

• VERDICT is modular, so it has everything that technicians need. The system includes three powerful modules: the VERDICT D7 seven inch display tablet, the VERDICT S3 wireless scan module and the VERDICT M2 two channel meter.

• VERDICT is wireless. The D7 Display controls the meter and the scan module remotely without wires, so technicians have the freedom to go where the job takes them. The scope and scan modules can both be connected to the car at separate points and all be controlled remotely from the display tablet.

• VERDICT requires no keys, so technicians can use a single adapter for OBD-II compliant vehicles. Move from system to system, car to car, without changing adapters or keys.

• VERDICT can multitask. Scan the car while the scope is collecting data in the background or open a favorite website or technical forum while using the scan tool.

Transmission Line Replacement

Transmission fluid likes to be at a constant temperature. If it is too hot or too cold for too long, the performance can fluctuate and potentially cause damage to the transmission.

Transmission fluid likes to be at a constant temperature. If it is too hot or too cold for too long, the performance can fluctuate and potentially cause damage to the transmission.
If the fluid is at a constant temperature, it behaves in a consistent manner in terms of its friction and lubrication properties. What can help control the temperature is the transmission cooling circuit.
The path of the fluid in the transmission lines is not as much about the destination as the journey. The size and length of the transmission lines, along with the size of the cooler, controls the temperature of the fluid. Also, the size of the engine and weight of the vehicle can determine the design of the transmission fluid cooling circuit.
Another thing to consider is how a modified transmission with a larger transmission cooling circuit might do more damage than good. On modern vehicles, the cooling circuit is designed to manage the fluid temperatures during startup. If the fluid can’t warm up quickly due to the increased volume, damage to the transmission friction surfaces can occur. The same goes for a bypassed cooling circuit. Why? Because fluid that is too hot can damage friction surfaces.

Oil Bath Air Filters

Long before people started using cotton gauze air filters soaked in oil, the oil bath air filter was the dominant filter on the market. The filter removes debris in the air by running it over oil and a mesh element. These filters worked great when most roads were dirt, but they could be messy to clean.
