For the first time, attendees at AAPEX 2022 will have access to training by the Automatic Transmission Service Group (ATSG), an industry-leading authority on transmission technical support and repair.
AAPEX 2022 will take place Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Thursday, Nov. 3, at The Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.
On Nov. 1, Wayne Colonna, ATSG president/ETE REMAN director of quality, will present, “Is It the Transmission or Not?” The four-hour presentation will cover transmission malfunctions and perceived malfunctions caused by “out-of-the-box” system failures. The information will be presented in ATSG’s detailed Complaint, Cause and Correction format covering both passenger cars and medium duty trucks. Diagnostic tips and tricks will be included, as well as pertinent information on various CVT and DCT transmissions needed for proper diagnostics.
On Nov. 2, Rino Partipilo, ATSG Technical Advisor, will present the “Best of ATSG’s 2022 Confirmed Transmission Fixes,” a four-hour presentation on various vehicles experiencing problems originating from issues within the transmission and how to diagnose them. These transmissions were experiencing symptoms that stumped professional technicians, so they turned to ATSG’s technical hotline for assistance. Partipilo will share the most recently learned confirmed fixes that were gathered by being on the front line of the ATSG Technical Hotline.
Both presentations will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on their respective days in the new Transmission Supplier Section, Level 1, The Venetian Expo. Attendees already registered for AAPEX may add these training sessions by accessing their online registration portal. New registrations may select the ATSG training sessions when completing the registration process. The cost per session is $125.
