Torque Converter Clutch Drop Out, 98 Dodge Pickup 2500 Diesel

 

Yesterday, we had a 98 Dodge pickup 2500 diesel that the torque converter clutch would engage and disengage at 40-45 miles per hour, when warmed up. You could clearly see the converter clutch drop out and engage again on a scanner. The first thing we noticed during our visual inspection was that battery terminals were badly corroded. We cleaned them up, road tested extensivly and all is ok. Hard to believe! Like everyone says, always start with basics.

I once knew a guy at the dealer who followed the diagnostic tree for a o2 code, he replaced a harness a ECM 4 o2 sensors. A older tech rolled over and cleaned the grounds and the car was fixed, morall of the story. If you have odd electrical behaviors, clean the terminals.

      The word OSHA makes many shop owners cringe. 
      I was lucky enough years back to have my insurance agent suggest I perform a voluntary OSHA inspection. A private company did it at the time.   
      They found tons of violations; some we knew would be flagged, but most we did not. 
      Have you ever had an OSHA inspection? And what can shop owners do to protect themselves?

      I recently read an article in Auto Success online, a publication for dealerships. It states that there is a market for used tires. I was never a fan of selling used tires. Link to article below.

      Years ago, I had a "No rehire rule." My thinking back then: If someone quits and I rehire them, does that send the right message to the other employees? That they can leave and I would take them back?  However, we are in different times.
      Employees, especially techs, have left their jobs in recent years, lured away by better pay, in many cases. But, these employees soon realized that a job (a career) is not all about the paycheck. 
      What would you do if an employee came back to you, asking for re-employment?
