Q: Is this a difficult service to offer?A:
Not with T-TECH. The T-TECH’s patented features simplify the process to allow any technician to consistently perform a successful T-TECH exchange. TT400 and TT500 models also support filter and pan gasket changing/servicing thanks to the convenient pan drain feature.
Q: Why should my shop offer ATF exchange services?A:
Nearly all vehicles carry an OEM specified transmission service schedule – ATF plays an important part in the overall performance and life of the vehicle’s transmission. Over time, heat and age can deteriorate a vehicle’s ATF, causing it to lose it lubricating qualities. By adding ATF exchange to your shop services, your customers will be offered the assurance that this vital preventive maintenance service provides. Your customers will also enjoy the convenience of being able to combine the ATF exchange with other maintenance work, saving valuable time.
Q: How do motorists benefit from an ATF exchange?A:
Motorists will have the benefit of a properly maintained transmission. The service is even more important if the vehicle has had any cooling system troubles (number #1 cause of roadside breakdowns according to AAA). An improperly operating cooling system can cause harm to a transmission by not properly cooling the ATF when it passes through the radiator.
Q: Why mechanical ATF exchange rather than the traditional method?A:
Mechanical ATF exchange offers the assurance that a comprehensive service has been performed. Using the traditional method of simply draining the pan and adding new fluid, a considerable amount of old fluid is left in the vehicle. This is not providing the same level of benefit to the motorist that a T-TECH ATF exchange, which exchanges virtually 100% of the vehicle’s ATF fluid, delivers.
Q: What makes a T-TECH ATF exchange different from other mechanical ATF exchanges?A:
The T-TECH exchange is powered solely by the vehicle’s transmission pump. This means that the T-TECH exchange occurs at the transmission’s operating pressure and will not over-pressure the vehicle’s system, which could result in damage to system components. In addition, you will get a 100% proportional exchange every time, as the used fluid pushes new fluid into the vehicle’s system. The simplicity of the T-TECH system, with its patented auto-alignment, auto-bypass and visual advantage features, also means that every member of the shop team can perform a successful T-TECH service, quickly and efficiently.
Q: Approximately how long does it take to perform a T-TECH ATF Exchange?A:
A typical T-TECH exchange will take 15 to 20 minutes, including vehicle hook-up and disconnection. Plus, with T-TECH, once the exchange is started, the technician is free to walk away to perform other services, because T-TECH automatically goes into a bypass mode at the end of the service until the technician is ready to disconnect it.
Q: How is the vehicle connection made?A:
The vehicle connection is made by accessing a transmission cooler line, typically at the radiator. It is critical that the ATF exchange equipment you use includes a wide variety of fittings, to allow you to service the widest range of vehicles, increasing the potential revenue opportunity from the equipment investment. T-TECH features the widest fittings assortment in the industry.
