Recommended Posts

I recenlty purchased test stips se we can start checking the antifreeze.

 

1. What PH level is good?

 

2. The bottle does not recomending using strips on orange or red coolant. Is there a special test strip I can purchse that can check every type of coolant?

Coolant should be basic (alkaline) as it resists acid from building up in the system.

AFAIK, it should be 9.5-10.5 pH, below 9 should be changed, below 8.3 will cause damage to the water pump, seals, rad tubes etc.

 

For long life coolant, I don't know of a test strip.

The dealership I work at uses a refractometer to check long life coolant.

      There are many things to consider when creating a marketing plan. Among them are establishing a budget, what forms of media should be used, and whether traditional advertising, such as TV, radio, and print, is still relevant.  And of course, how much should be allocated to social media and digital advertising?
      All the above are essentials to any marketing plan. However, the first step is ensuring that you have a healthy workplace and that your employees understand your company’s culture and the overall mission and vision. 
      We all know that happy employees create happy customers. No form of advertising can overcome a toxic workplace with unhappy employees. If your employees are not creating an amazing customer experience, your marketing plan will not work.
      Advertising and marketing may bring in customers, but the people in your company creating an amazing customer experience will be the most important component of your marketing plan.  It’s the customer experience that sells work and gives the customer a reason to return. 
      Creating an amazing employee experience, which creates an amazing customer experience, is also the most cost-effective part of your marketing plan. In fact, it cost next to nothing.

      Hi guys just  a short one this! As garage owners present or past how do or did you cope with the "can you just" brigade. This is the customer male or female (or otherwise) who just asks if "you could pop a light bulb in for me please". I no it could be a slow day, then this would not be problem, but does it annoy you. We had one in the other Saturday. A guy pulled in and wanted us to check  knocking on the rear end. The car was road tested and on the ramp for two hours on a busy Saturday morning.
      Eventually we found a broken coil spring on the front of the car! I am sure there are much worse stories than this but it really gets me mad sometimes?

      Why is adapting to technology important? Look around you. Keeping up with the latest technology is key to any successful enterprise. It is a requirement today. It increases flexibility, streamlines operations, and helps you adjust your forward progress. I'm with Chris Cloutier and Craig ONeill at ASTE 2022, and we discuss the four ‘Ts’ … technology, touch, trust, and transparency. The inspiration for this episode stemmed from Tracy receiving a video from an orthodontist's office and how it can be easily implemented in our industry.  Chris Cloutier is co-owner of Golden Rule Auto Care in Dallas Texas and CEO of Auto Tex Me. Listen to Chris’s previous episodes HERE. Craig O'Neill, VP of Training, Autotextme.com. Listen to Craig's previous episodes HERE  Key Talking Points
      Using videos to do your inspections and business discussions Technology plus touch equals trust or transparency Get service advisors to set expectations at the beginning of a visit. Connect through technology without having to waste time- send a text message that points to an email to open a video.  You now have secured two main lines of communication for this person Pre-sell, pre-sold User-generated content does not have to be perfect; it just has to be personable Educating customers with one minute videos Level one, basic data. Your name, the information to reach you. Level two, discuss the vehicle transactional data related to why the visit's coming in. Level three, the relational data, how are you using this car? Are you going on any trips? Making the person a client, not customer
