The oil landscape is changing for shops, as the pandemic has changed travel patterns and caused consumer spending on regular vehicle maintenance to fluctuate. On top of that, the new GF-6 oil specifications -- which went into place earlier this year -- are causing shops to question what kind of oil they need to keep in stock. You need to find the right balance between giving your customers the service and choice they expect, while still protecting your own bottom line.
How can your shop reduce inventory, boost shop space, and ultimately boost profits? In this webinar, you will learn how one small addition to your shop shelves can give your customers more choice while reducing the SKUs you have to carry.
When a wheel bearing makes noise on a late-model Ford Escape, Toyota Camry or VW Golf, do you wish you could ignore the noise? One of the most labor-intensive wheel bearings to replace is a Gen 1 cartridge-style bearing that is pressed into the knuckle. These types of bearings can be found on cars and SUVs from both domestic and import nameplate manufacturers. For most applications, there are no short cuts or "miracle" tools. During this free webinar we will look at ways to become more efficient and profitable when replacing Gen 1 cartridge-style wheel bearings.
In this live training session, we show how to use a scope for quick diagnostics of sensors under the hood of the vehicle. With this knowledge, you will be able to come to a diagnosis faster with less time-consuming disassembly. ASE-certified technician Andrew Markel demystifies the scope, and what it can do for a technician when they have to make the diagnostic call.
- How can a current clamp be used to test compression?
- What probes can be used to determine if there is spark and fuel?
- How do I connect to a circuit to cause the least amount of damage?
- What are the procedures for capturing a camshaft and crankshaft position sensor waveform?
- What should you look for when purchasing a scope?
- Why don’t my waveforms look like those I see online?
Engine technology and belts have changed and are constantly changing. If students aren't aware of proper belt installation, inspection and diagnostic procedures, the belt (and the components that the belt drives) could fail prematurely. In this 30-minute educational webinar, students and technicians will learn what has changed and what will change in the future with belts. Also, they will leave with practical skills that they can apply today.
Wheel bearings are an essential component of the chassis system. As a technician, you need to know about how a wheel bearing works and the different designs of wheel bearings. You should also know about seals -- including how to choose the right seal, and understanding why seals fail. In this free 30-minute training webinar, ASE-certified technician Roger Gillette will educate you and your team on bearing clearance and bearing play is, the benefits of an orbitally formed shoulder, choosing the right seal for an application, and much more.
This free webinar will prepare students to service Gasoline Direct Injection systems and components. Attendees will benefit by improving their diagnostic and repair efficiency. After attending this class, students and technicians will be able to identify GDI system components, follow proper safety procedures, and replace GDI system components -- including the high-pressure pump, fuel injectors, and related components.
This 30-minute webinar will be led by ASE-certified technician Roger Gillette. He will be explaining how Overrunning Alternator Pulley (OAP) and Thermal Management Module (TMM) operate and how to diagnose them when they fail. You’ll learn about the dramatic growth in vehicles using these components, and why it’s so important to become familiar with these systems.
Does the ASE A6 exam for electrical and electronics have your students worried? They are not alone! The A6 is the second most difficult test in the ASE A-Series. In this exclusive 30-minute training webinar, ASE-certified technician Andrew Markel will discuss what students need to understand, what they need to memorize, and what they should look out for in the questions.
The ASE A5 brake exam is the most taken test in the ASE catalog. But it is also the test that stumps technicians and has the lowest scores of any of the A-series tests. For 2017, the new items to the task list could leave students with blind spots that might hurt their scores. In this free training webinar to learn about new task list items. You'll learn about simple tricks that can help you read and answer questions more effectively. Register now! Sponsored by Raybestos Brakes.
Wheel bearings carry the weight of a vehicle on a surface no larger than a credit card. That's why proper inspection and installation methods are critical for servicing modern wheel bearings. In this free 30-minute training webinar, ASE-certified technician Mike Geul will discuss the basics and advanced techniques for diagnostics and service.
