Fluid Rx Diagnostics’ Vital Fluids Analysis diagnostics charts differentiates between and performs separate testing for all four major variations of transmission fluids and all four major variations of power steering fluids, as well as brake fluid and gear lube – this includes separate testing for transfer case and front and rear differentials. The test provides a comprehensive evaluation of each fluid including a measure of the additive package, dispersant properties, and total sludge or debris content.
Vital Fluid Analysis is quickly becoming a “must have” addition to the multi-point Inspection process. “Consumers are better informed and more savvy than at any time in history”, said Magna-Guard, Inc. CEO, Ron McElroy. “However, with the complexity of modern cars and trucks, they seek out and are thirsty for expert advice – service recommendations they can put their trust in and rely upon. As opposed to pitching subjective odometer readings or time in service schedules, ‘Vital Fluid Analysis’ gives customers the information they require to make educated decisions based on science. It also provides instant credibility for your service recommendations. Proof it’s time to change sells the service.”
All modern lubricants contain additives that inhibit breakdown. When these additives become depleted, the fluid degrades and can no longer perform its intended function. Fluid Rx Diagnostics measures additive depletion and the level of sludge or debris in fluids or oil. The ISO (International Standards Organization) Diagnostics Charts show how specific fluids appear at various points of depletion on their certified Test Sheet, “GOOD” – “CHANGE” – “OVERDUE.”
Fluid Rx Instant Lubricant Diagnostics follows all Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) Standards and California BAR guidelines when making fluid service recommendations. Fluid Rx Diagnostics provides technicians and consumers with the information needed to make an informed decision on why and when fluid services are to be performed.
