Liqui Moly used the recent UK Garage and Bodyshop Event in Birmingham to showcase its own Pro-Line range of additives and service products, designed exclusively for workshops.
This extends from ‘Engine Flush’ to remove deposits from the oil circuit, ‘Throttle Valve Cleaner’ to expel typical dirt from the intake and throttle valve area, right through to specialists such as the ‘Injector and Glow Plug Dismantling Aid’, which can be used to gently loosen even stubbornly stuck injectors.
In total, there are several dozen products that are reserved exclusively for workshops. “These are extremely useful chemical tools that every professional should have in their toolbox,” says Tim Keller, who is responsible for the UK and Ireland market at Liqui Moly. “They make many jobs faster, easier and more cost-effective than mechanical repairs would.”
Liqui Moly says that two of its special appliances can be used to boost sales. Firstly, the all-new ‘Gear Tronic III’, which makes the complicated and error-prone oil change in automatic transmissions a simple and unproblematic job. On top of this, it is not only possible to change the automatic transmission fluid, but also to clean the transmission so that it shifts noticeably better afterwards.
“The Gear Tronic III opens up new sales opportunities for workshops that have previously shied away from changing the automatic transmission fluid,” says Keller.
The second device is the ‘JetClean Tronic II’. This unit enables particularly intensive cleaning of the injection systems of petrol and diesel engines.
“Modern engines are sensitive to contamination. This degrades performance and increases fuel consumption. The older the vehicle and the higher the mileage, the more clearly the car owner will feel the difference after cleaning,” explains Keller. “With the JetClean Tronic II, workshops can offer a special service, set themselves apart from competitors, and therefore generate more sales.”
Liqui Moly will be exhibiting at this year’s Auto Trade EXPO, which takes place from Saturday and Sunday, October 15-16 at the RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin.
