Mahle Service Solutions, a division of Mahle Aftermarket Inc., announced two additions to its line of ArcticPro air conditioning (A/C) units at the 2015 Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo in Las Vegas.
This bulletin applies to several 2010 Chrysler vehicles including Caliber, Journey, Avenger, Sebring, Compass and Patriot.
Tracerline Products’ Tracerline TP-8656 EZ-Shot OEM-grade A/C kit provides a simple, effective way to add fluorescent dye to a vehicle’s A/C system.
As labor rates climb, and serviceability gets increasingly convoluted, it is becoming more and more important to diagnose A/C problems as accurately as possible. Of course, being that air conditioning is generally diagnosed by interpreting pressures and looking at the “general vicinity” of where UV dye can be spotted, it’s less than an objective, exact science.
This bulletin applies to 2006 Ram truck Mega Cab models that experience a lack of air flow from the rear seat heat duct. The rear seat actuator rod may become disconnected from the actuator lever, causing the rear seat heater door to become inoperative.
The economical Tracerline OPTI-PRO EZ-Shot A/C Kit (part number TP-8616) makes it easy for technicians to find all air conditioning leaks, quickly and efficiently, says the company.
Tracer Products is offering the Tracerline EZ-Ject A/C and Fluid Kit (part no. TP-8657) that pinpoints leaks in A/C and fluid systems using concentrated, premium-quality, OEM-approved fluorescent dyes.
The automobile is slowly evolving into an appliance, at least in the minds of many motorists. Much like a refrigerator or microwave, owners tend to use the equipment and ignore service until something breaks.
The world of automotive service continues to change at an accelerated rate. That includes mobile air conditioning service challenges for service technicians.
Some 2009-2010 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles may exhibit a noise in the dash area after the engine is started or when the customer requests a heating/ventilation/air conditioning temperature change.
