As a truck repair shop owner, you’re always looking for ways to increase your service and parts revenue and maintain customer loyalty. One way to do this is by adding charge air cooler (CAC) testing to your regular scheduled maintenance list, and there’s no better tool for this job than the Dura-Lite™ Charge Air Cooler Tester-Kit™.
The Dura-Lite Charge Air Cooler Tester-Kit is a specialized tool designed specifically for testing charge air coolers quickly and accurately. With this tester, you can measure the amount of pressurized air the CAC loses over a designated period of time. This will determine if the CAC is leaking or not. A leaking charge air cooler will rob performance, increase fuel consumption, and increase DPF regeneration cycles.
Adding charge air cooler testing to your regular scheduled maintenance list can help you catch potential issues early on for your customer before they turn into major problems that require expensive repairs. By offering this service, you can identify trucks that have CAC issues and recommend a replacement before it causes loss of power, increased fuel consumption, and potential engine damage.
Let’s look at some examples to see how adding charge air cooler testing can impact your revenue. Suppose your shop services 100 trucks per month, and you find that 20% of those trucks need a CAC replacement with an average installation cost of $2,000. This means you could potentially generate an additional $40,000 in revenue each month just by adding CAC testing to your scheduled maintenance with the help of the Dura-Lite Charge Air Cooler Tester-Kit.
In addition to the revenue boost, using the Dura-Lite Charge Air Cooler Tester-Kit can also help build customer loyalty. By identifying potential issues early and preventing breakdowns, you’ll demonstrate your commitment to keeping your customers’ trucks running smoothly and reliably.
