      Rislone has introduced new High Mileage Power Steering Stop Whine with Leak Repair (P/N 4604), describing it as “a quick and dependable solution for customers suffering steering ‘whine,’ sluggish steering or a power-steering system leak in their high-mileage cars, SUVs and light trucks.” 
      Power-steering problems are common in older vehicles, especially those clocking 75,000 miles or more. Noise and whining, minor leaks and hard-steering complaints can dull your customers’ driving enjoyment and, if ignored, only get worse over time. 
      “High Mileage Power Steering Stop Whine with Leak Repair can cost-effectively and quickly solve a range of power-steering issues,” said Clay Parks, Rislone vice president of strategic development. “It’s an affordable solution to noisy power-steering systems that generally occur when the system is low on fluid, there is air trapped in the fluid or the vehicle has some mechanical issues.”
      The all-new product contains a special blend of viscosity improvers, anti-wear friction modifiers and extreme-pressure performance additives, according to the company. It’s formulated to stop bearing, piston and valve noises inside the power-steering pump. Special lubricity additives smooth out rough, hard and tight steering and reduce friction. Stop-leak additives repair minor leaks and help prevent new ones. 
      Customers can use the product to top off existing fluid when low or add a bottle as a preventive-maintenance measure whenever power steering fluid is changed. It’s compatible with all types of domestic and imported power-steering fluids, including petroleum and synthetic formulas, and works with systems that use ATF automatic-transmission fluid. 
      Most passenger cars and light trucks require one 11.8-ounce (350-millileter) bottle for every 1 to 3 quarts of power-steering fluid. In smaller systems (those under a quart of capacity), use half a bottle. Depending on the power-steering problem, results will either be immediate or noticeable within a few days of driving, according to the company. A second application may be needed for hard-to-stop leaks or to solve other system issues.
      Rislone High Mileage Power Steering Stop Whine with Leak Repair is a sister product to Rislone High Mileage Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair (P/N 4502) for automatic and manual transmissions.

      Arnold Motor Supply recently purchased Sioux City, Iowa-based Motor Parts Central and its sister company Northern Auto Parts.
      The purchase will allow the company to expand its inventory and distribution in the region.
      “The move from our old location in Sioux City to the Motor Parts Central building increases our retail and distribution space by 130,000 square feet,” says Eric Johnson, president and managing partner for Arnold Motor Supply. “The Sioux City location will now serve as a distribution hub for our surrounding parts stores.”
      Northern Auto Parts will continue to operate within the same building and is a different type of expansion for the company. Northern is a national online retailer, specializing in engine-rebuild kits and engine parts.
      “For years, we’ve provided engine rebuilding and restoration through our machine shops, so adding the expertise of the Northern Auto Parts team is a great addition for our customers,” Johnson said.

      A leading automotive tool and equipment distributor wanted to make it easier for shop owners, professional technicians and do-it-yourselfers to get the vehicle service equipment and tools they need quickly.
      The result is Wrenchers, a reimagined and rebranded version of the company formerly known as Garage Equipment Supply.
      The new Wrenchers offers more than 12,000 items from leading tool and equipment brands, plus access to more than 50,000 specialty items online at

The expanded lineup includes an array of high-quality lifting systems, specialty tools and equipment solutions including service lifts and parking systems, hand and power tools, tool storage, vehicle diagnostics and various shop essentials, such as wheel service and collision repair equipment. 
      In addition to changing its branding and bolstering its product lines, Wrenchers has relocated from California to a large corporate office and distribution center in Theodore, Alabama. The new location helps Wrenchers deliver products quicker than any other warehouse distributor, according to the company, reaching 98% of the United States with free shipping via LTL trucking, flatbed service or FedEx within one to five days from the time the order is placed. 
      “Not long after we launched in 1996, customers started asking us to offer even more equipment,” said Marco Ortiz, director of factory sales.“Wequickly expanded to include tire changers, wheel balancers, alignment and front-end tools, among others. More than 25 years later, we now serve every facet of the vehicle-maintenance marketplace. With our new website, distribution center and other enhancements, we can offer our more than 350,000 customers more choices, faster delivery, and even better service.” 
       Wrenchers markets its products through multiple distribution sales channels, including retail, e-commerce and independent specialty tool dealers throughout the United States and Canada.
      The company also supports its customers with financing options and an extensive field service network of Wrenchers TechMate reps. These specialists demonstrate, install, set up and service shop equipment systems.

      Continental now offers an ultrasonic backup-sensor kit that can be retrofitted to or incorporated as OEM for virtually any vehicle including commercial vehicles, RVs and off-highway, agricultural and material-handling equipment.
      Out of the box, the ultrasonic backup-sensor kit provides an audible alarm to the operator when the vehicle comes within 10 feet of an object and beeps faster as the driver gets closer to the obstacle. The kit also can customized for specific distance intervals to meet OEM specifications.
      The innovative backup system delivers a voice announcement of object distance at specific intervals and easily integrates with on-board camera/monitor systems, according to Continental. When paired with a backup camera system, a monitor will display an overlay, revealing the active sensor(s) and the object distance from that sensor.
      “Backup sensors are an essential component of operator and workplace safety in modern vehicles,” notes Jared Hall, Continental product manager. “The Continental ultrasonic back-up-sensor kit can be fitted to a wide variety of vehicles including commercial trucks, buses, RVs, fire trucks, garbage trucks and agricultural vehicles, as well as construction, mining and material handling equipment.”
      The Continental ultrasonic backup-sensor kit is easy to set up and simple to configure as a retrofit or original equipment installation, according to the company. The kit includes four sensors, a central control unit and a speaker. Cameras, and monitors are available from Continental as options.
