(Note: Facebook Live Event was held April 5, 2018 8 pm ET/5pm PT) Have you seen an increase in pothole-related chassis damage on automobiles during this brutal winter season? If so, the Gurus can help.
Garage Gurus, the first-of-its-kind national training platform, will hold its fourth Facebook Live event on Wednesday, April 4, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, broadcast from Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Garage Gurus’ Technical Center in St. Louis. Garage Guru Mark Isaac will discuss common problems associated with chassis misalignment.
During the session, viewers will be able to hear Isaac break down common steering and suspension problems caused by running over those hazardous potholes. He will also discuss the ins-and-outs of proper chassis care and why regular chassis maintenance is crucial to overall vehicle health. Isaac will outline the frequent problems associated with misalignment, ball joints and tie rod ends, struts, and much more. During the demo, participants will be able to ask questions and obtain answers to their questions immediately.
“We recognize that today’s technicians are demanding more and more high-quality training opportunities, at their own convenience, than they have in the past, so we have continued to design Garage Gurus training sessions to be accessible to techs outside of their usual working hours and via modern social media applications and tools,” said Brent Berman, director of training and consumer experience, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “By utilizing Facebook Live, we are able to connect with our audience and offer them some informal training and instruction in an interactive way, while not taking too long to do it.
“April is also National Car Care Month, so this is a great time for techs to learn more techniques and how to spot trouble areas as consumers continue to bring in their vehicles for general maintenance.”
This is the fourth instalment of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ ongoing Facebook Live series. The first Facebook Live event was held in May 2017, when Guru Tim Habel demonstrated Fel-Pro® head gasket replacement tips (https://www.facebook.com/FMGarageGurus/videos/1888716868033623/). In August, Guru John Dixon hosted a seminar on ABS installation techniques (https://www.facebook.com/FMGarageGurus/videos/1936414759930500/), while Guru Bud Houston instructed participants on how to identify and correct problems usually not covered during a general suspension inspection in October (https://www.facebook.com/FMGarageGurus/videos/1962274034011239/) .
