VIDEO: Did You Check The Monitors?

Take time to look at the lights on your service monitors. This video is sponsored by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper.

Every time you pull a vehicle into your bays, you need to take a little extra time looking at the lights on in the instrument cluster and service monitors.

The majority of vehicles that come to your shop have “life” tools that tell customers when they need an oil change, new air filter or other service. These indicators can use complex algorithms to calculate the remaining miles or life percentage. Catching an item before they go to zero, can create a win for the customer and your shop. So before you get out of the car to start the inspection, check the monitors.

One of the most challenging shift complaints to diagnose is a harsh shift. The most likely cause is a check valve seal in the valve body. These valves are actuated by fluid pressure and seal against the passages with o-rings. The movement of these valves can become “sticky” due to seal leaks and varnish in the passages. This hesitation can cause shifts that can be delayed or suddenly engage. This video will focus on the additives and conditioners that can rejuvenate the seals and eliminate varnish in the passages of the valve body.
