Is it easier to downsell or upsell a timing-belt kit?

You get a call for a timing belt. You look up on the part screen. You have the make and model displayed, and there are a lot of options out there. You could go for the easy sale, and the least expensive timing belt or timing-belt kit. Do your customer a favor. Start to look at those timing-belt-kit options – you’re bound to find one that best suits their needs.

A lot of these kits include everything you’ll need to do that job properly, so the vehicle can last until the next service interval. This can include a water pump, seals, idler pulleys and other things to get the job done right the first time.

So, make sure that you look through your parts catalog to see what’s included in some of these kits, and mention that to your customer.

Choosing the Right Motor Oil

Learn why choosing the right motor oil is crucial for modern vehicles with turbocharging and direct injection technology.

For most people, purchasing a vehicle is the second largest investment they will ever make. Keeping up with the oil and filter changes based on the recommended service intervals is perhaps the most important thing they can do to protect their investment. Today's motor oils are far more complex than they were years ago when you poured the oil out of a can. So are today's vehicles. As vehicle manufacturers continue to look for ways to meet federal emissions and fuel economy standards, many OEMs have turned to technologies such as turbocharging and direct injection to squeeze more power and efficiency out of smaller displacement engines. While these engines have fewer cylinders than the mainstream vehicles of yesteryear, they also operate under higher pressures and temperatures compared to traditionally, naturally aspirated engines, and that creates additional demands for today's motor oil. That's why motor oil today is often blended to meet the needs of a specific manufacturer or even a specific engine.
