CONCORD, New Hampshire – Sanel Auto Parts, a chain of 44 stores in the Northeast, announced that the company is joining NAPA Auto Parts.

The Segal family will continue to own and operate the company, which will be called Sanel NAPA.

Sanel NAPA said it will be purchasing eight additional NAPA stores: three in New Hampshire, four in Maine and one in Massachusetts.

“By joining NAPA, Sanel will be able to provide increased inventory in stores, enhanced access to more products and parts, and faster supply chain logistics to deliver more efficiently at competitive prices,” the company said in a news release.

Sanel NAPA now will be a single source for more than 525,000 parts, sourcing products and services from more than 1,600 manufacturers from multiple distribution centers, “with improved retail and wholesale merchandising programs to meet the multiple needs of customers,” according to the company.

Founded in 1920, Sanel NAPA carries auto parts, heavy-duty truck parts and collision repair and refinish supplies. The company also holds training sessions and technical clinics for heavy-duty technicians, paint and body service providers and automotive professionals.

“It’s a natural fit for Sanel and NAPA to come together,” said Gregg Sargent, Eastern Division vice president for Genuine Parts Company’s U.S. Automotive Parts Group. “Each are strong brands with an over 90-year legacy of quality, excellence and service. Customers will benefit from NAPA’s breadth and depth while continuing to enjoy the local service and attention they have come to expect from Sanel.”

Sanel NAPA is a member of NAPA, HDA Truck Pride and the Refinish Distributors Alliance.

“Partnering with NAPA will launch us into the future, creating unity, strength and a collective focus on our family’s philosophy of having a positive culture, strong work ethic and passion for providing auto parts, heavy-duty truck parts, paint and body shop supplies and now tools, equipment and farm and marine supplies to our customers,” said Bobby Segal, CEO of Sanel NAPA.

A recent study from Hanover Research and Babcox Media suggests that over 20% of repairs required an OE diagnostic tool to properly complete the repair job. However, many OE tools require a large upfront investment, costly upkeep, and specialized knowledge, creating barriers for many shop owners. Repairify and NAPA said asTech® Mechanical solves this issue by enabling shops to remotely connect to an OE tool, operated by a certified technician, to perform programming, calibrations, and vehicle health checks on a pay-per-use basis.  “As a leader in the aftermarket repair industry, we’re dedicated to improving technician and shop efficiency,” said John Molidor, product category director – tools and equipment; paint, body, and equipment at NAPA. “Our partnership with

      The phenomenon that two objects move relative to each other to produce motion resistance between their contact surfaces is called friction, which is called friction. The existence of friction not only increases the power consumption, but also causes the wear of parts' contact surfaces. Therefore, lubricating oil is usually used between the relative moving surfaces of automobile parts to reduce friction. Failure of automotive parts 75% is caused by friction.
      Friction can be divided into dry friction, liquid friction, boundary friction and mixed friction according to the lubrication state of the parts.
      (1) dry friction
      The friction between the frictional surfaces without any lubricating medium is called dry friction.
      When the parts are in the state of dry friction, the surface of the parts is abraded sharply, so the surface of the moving parts of the automobile should avoid the occurrence of dry friction as far as possible.
      Dry friction and boundary friction are the main friction between the upper part of cylinder wall and piston ring. Dry friction will occur when the journal and bearing are subjected to impact load in the working process.
      (2) liquid friction
      Two the friction of the friction surface when the lubricant is completely separated is called liquid friction.
      In liquid friction, the two friction surfaces are completely separated by a layer of lubricating oil film with a thickness of 1.5-2.0um, which avoids direct contact between the working surfaces of the two parts. Friction only occurs between the lubricating fluid molecules, so the friction resistance is very small, and the wear of the parts is very slight.
      Most of the relative motion parts of a car are carried out under the condition of liquid friction (for example, crankshaft and bearing).
      (3) boundary friction
      Two friction surface separated by a very thin boundary film is called boundary friction.
      The oil film thickness is usually below 0.1um. Friction only occurs between the outer molecules of the boundary film, reducing the friction and wear of the parts. But its thickness is very small, and it is easy to be destroyed by impact and high temperature, so it is not as reliable as liquid friction.
      For example: between cylinder wall and piston ring; if the work crankshaft and journal between the insufficient supply of lubricant, easy to produce boundary friction.
      (4) Mixed friction
      The friction between two friction surfaces in the presence of dry friction, liquid friction and boundary friction is called mixed friction.
      In the actual working state, the parts usually work under the mixed friction state, and the friction state varies with the working conditions.

      link hidden, please login to view announced its Pass Thru Assistant (PTA) has been enhanced by the addition of a repair guidance feature. Not only does the Pass Thru Assistant provide J2534 programming support, but it now also allows automotive repair and collision technicians to access a repair guidance specialist to get help with fixing complex problems to complete the repair in house, the company explained in a news release. “If you’re an automotive repair or collision shop looking for programming and repair guidance help, the Snap-on Pass Thru Assistant is making it easier than ever to keep vehicles in the shop, finish the job correctly, and increase profits and customer satisfaction,” said Helen Cox, marketing and client services director, Snap-on Diagnostics.

      link hidden, please login to view said by selecting the request repair guidance menu option and completing the on-screen fields, technicians will receive a confirmation text and then a call from a repair guidance specialist to walk them through the repair process on vehicles, including Acura, Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mercury, Mini, Nissan, Plymouth, Porsche, RAM, Scion, Smart, Sprinter, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
