LIQUI MOLY launches new Gear Tronic with a number of improvements and enhancements
Ulm, Germany—Just a few years ago, changing oil in automatic transmissions was time-consuming and complicated. With the latest generation of Gear Tronic, the German oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY has paved the way for shops to perform a fully automatic oil change for torque converter transmissions, CVTs and DSGs.
As the popularity of the automatic transmission concept is increasing, so is the need for service. “This is precisely why we have developed and continuously optimized the Gear Tronic concept for shops,” said David Kaiser, who heads the Research and Development unit at LIQUI MOLY.
The new Gear Tronic III device has a number of improvements compared with its predecessor, including a 7-inch color touchscreen with enhanced display that provides a better overview. The work instructions are also displayed there, including the correct adapters and pictures from practice on the vehicle connections.
“The complete vehicle database with more than 2,000 vehicle models and all the information is now right on the device,” Kaiser said. “Additional data carriers and logins to other systems are a thing of the past.”
Networking also offers other benefits: the servicing data can be sent directly to the printer or to an e-mail address of the shop via Wi-Fi. Regular and free updates will also be installed automatically via the internet.
In addition to the flow of optimized data, but also that of the lubricants: The drip tray has been enlarged to a capacity of 4.6 liters and the drain widened.
