Stop Power-Steering ‘Whine’ With New Rislone Additive


Recommended Posts

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.

      IMR Inc., a full-service automotive market research firm, has released its latest insight, an update from its 2021 insight on the importance of private-label and national-branded parts at independent repair shops.
      As of August 2022, more parts purchasers at independent repair shops reported knowing what brand was in the private-label box (20.8%) compared to 2021 (19.6%), with purchasers at smaller shops (one to three bays) more likely to know what was in the private-label box (22.6%) compared to larger shops with eight or more bays, where purchasers were less likely to know what was in the private-label box (16.4%).

      This year’s survey results showed that 40.8% of shops said that their first-call supplier carried mostly private-label parts with only a few national-branded parts options, which is a decrease from 2021 survey results, at 42.6%. Of that 40.8%, 19.1% said that they go to another supplier to purchase nationally branded parts, 10.3% said that they always or frequently do and 66.7% said that they occasionally do.  

      When shops were asked about the likelihood of switching their first-call supplier if it changed to offer majority private-label brands with limited national brands, only 6% of shops said that they definitely or very likely would switch, compared to 2021 survey results, where 15.2% of shops said that they definitely or very likely would make the switch. However, of the 59.2% of shops that said their first-call supplier doesn’t have heavy private-label branded categories, the number of those who would definitely/very likely switch rises to 8.8%, and another 13.5% say they would be likely to make a switch. 

      Overall, more than half of shops surveyed reported in 2022 that they occasionally go to another supplier for nationally branded parts at 66.7%, while 17.9% rarely go to another supplier. 10.3% reported going to another supplier frequently and 0% reported always going to a different supplier for nationally branded parts.

      Standard Motor Products announced the addition of 314 new part numbers in its August new-number announcement.
      This release covers more than 100 product categories and includes more than 100 part numbers for 2021 and 2022 model-year vehicles.
      SMP is committed to providing replacement parts for hybrid and electric vehicles through its Standard, Standard Import and Four Seasons brands. The August NNA added several new components for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E, 2021-2013 Nissan Leaf, 2022-2016 Toyota Prius, 2020-2019 Kia Niro EV, 2018-2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron and 2015 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive.
      This month’s release expands on powertrain-neutral coverage for both Standard and Four Seasons with more than 170 new sensors, switches, actuators and connectors. Included are 23 new power-window switches, as well as shift-interlock actuators, backup light switches, four-wheel-drive actuator connectors and more.
      Standard remains dedicated to expanding its ADAS (advanced driver-assist systems) program. The expansion includes 17 new ABS speed sensors, 11 new park-assist cameras and several new blind-spot detection sensors. Cruise-control distance sensors also are now available for popular Ford and Lincoln SUVS, including the 2013-2012 Explorer, Edge and MKX.
      “We are proud of the 300+ new part numbers added to our extensive product line,” said John Herc, vice president of engine management marketing, SMP. “In addition to offering the highest-quality products possible, the coverage provided by these new part numbers is an integral part of our mission to provide our dedicated distribution partners and loyal service providers with the parts they need to get the job done.”
      Standard’s turbocharger program continues to grow with the release of four new turbocharger kits for more than 2.4 million popular Ford vehicles including the 2020-2015 Transit platform. The release also adds numerous turbocharger-related parts including turbocharger oil lines, turbocharger coolant lines, turbocharger bypass valves and charge air coolers.
      Standard continues to expand its collision repair program with the introduction of radiator active grille shutter assemblies for the 2020-2018 Ford F-150. Power door-lock actuators, trunk-lock actuator motors and tailgate-lock actuator motors are just a few of the collision products also included in the release.
      In an effort to expand existing product lines, Standard has released three new transfer-case motors for 6.6 million vehicles on the road, including the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2010-2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2019-2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.
      Four Seasons, SMP’s Temperature Control Division, has added 67 new part numbers to its product line. Included are 31 new air door actuators covering more than 6 million domestic and import vehicles on the road, including the 2021-2013 Buick Encore, 2020-2015 Acura TLX, 2016 Honda Odyssey and 2016-2014 Chevrolet Spark.
