Eric Johnson, president and managing partner of Arnold Motor Supply/The Merrill Company, is visiting Northwood University this week to meet with students enrolled in automotive aftermarket courses. 

“Efforts to encourage and educate students are so valuable because not only are we helping individuals, we’re also helping to shape the future of our industry,” Johnson said. “Preparing students with the mindset, skills and knowledge they need to be successful contributes to the overall growth and innovation of the aftermarket.” 

Johnson, a member of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance board of directors, spoke with students enrolled in aftermarket category management, aftermarket management research and aftermarket manufacturing management, among others.

“As a University of the Aftermarket graduate and supporter of Northwood University, Eric wanted to invest in the future leaders of the industry by sharing several real-life cases relevant to the aftermarket classes,” said Dr. Thomas Litzinger, executive director of the University of the Aftermarket/Northwood aftermarket industry chair.

Students enrolled in aftermarket category management are prepared for the role of product manager through inventory-modeling techniques and data analysis. The aftermarket manufacturing management course explores the role manufacturers play in the aftermarket and what business functions they employ.

Aftermarket management research teaches students research techniques to form a hypothesis and sample the data to reject or not reject the hypothesis.

“Our students are eager to engage with industry leaders and learn from their expertise,” said James O’Dell, assistant director of aftermarket education. “This real-life industry experience sets Northwood students apart, makes them uniquely qualified and prepares them for success in their career.”

The global market value of the aftermarket exceeds $400 billion. Northwood’s

“The program has nearly a 100% employment rate for all graduates in the program,” Northwood said in a news release. “Part of their success is because Northwood helps them engage in real-world experiences and network with industry leaders like Eric Johnson.”

      link hidden, please login to view announced the launch of a new passenger car motor oil – Red Diamond Ultimate. The company said the oil is formulated to fully meet the General Motors dexos1 Gen 3 specification among others but is also formulated to keep the oil cleaner for longer periods of time while improving performance, engine system protection, mileage and horsepower. In a news release announcing the new product, the company said Red Diamond Ultimate passenger car motor oil uses 100% Group III base oils and is infused with Hot Shot’s Secret’s proprietary FR3 Nano Technology. It is suited for both hybrid and internal combustion engines, especially small displacement, turbocharged GDI engines where it can protect against low-speed pre-ignition. The company added that Red Diamond protects against timing chain and valve wearing that often occurs and fights the formation of high temperature deposits that drain horsepower and fuel economy.
      “We’re thrilled to offer passenger car motor oil and exclusively to our dealer network,” said
      link hidden, please login to viewBrand Manager, Josh Steinmetz. “With three viscosities, we expect a lot of demand for this product given the compatibility for any vehicle where Dexos1 Gen 3 is specified. Also, it also exceeds API SM, SN and SN Plus and many of the Ford and Chrysler motor oil specs. Adding this oil to our lineup allows service centers to offer an outstanding oil to protect their customer’s vehicles.”  Red Diamond Ultimate Motor Oil is available in three viscosity weights — 0W-20, 5W-20 and 5W-30 now and in three sizes — 5-gallon, 55-gallon and 330-gallon.

      South Korea’s 
      link hidden, please login to view Group said on July 1 that it is seeking to seize an early lead in the booming automotive market in Southeast Asia, thanks to its established presence in several countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The group said that its first automotive manufacturing plant in the ASEAN region, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (HMMI), produced 22,520 vehicles in the first quarter of this year, achieving an operating rate of 110.9%. Hyundai said that this figure was the highest among all its overseas factories during the same period.
      Last year’s operating rate at HMMI was just 50.3%, showing that both demand and supply for Hyundai in the local market have grown rapidly in the past year.

      Hyundai Motor has committed to investing approximately $1.55 billion in HMMI by 2030. HMMI currently oversees the production of vehicles including the super-mini SUV Creta, compact multi-purpose vehicle Stargazer, mid-size SUV Santa Fe, and the award-winning electric vehicle IONIQ 5. Through May 31st of this year, HMMI has sold a total of 1,927,92 vehicles.
      Hyundai also highlighted its electric vehicle battery production in Southeast Asia. The company established a joint cell factory with South Korean battery manufacturer LG Energy Solution in Karawang New Industry City, Indonesia, in June last year.
      The joint venture, named HLI Green Power, began mass production of cells in April this year. Hyundai stated that the Kona Electric will be the first vehicle to feature cells produced in Southeast Asia. The company noted that this will make Hyundai the first automaker in Indonesia to have a complete production and sales chain for electric vehicles.
      Hyundai sold 7,475 electric vehicles in Indonesia last year, accounting for 43.8% of the market and becoming the country’s largest electric vehicle seller. Hyundai stated that although it is leading in the electric vehicle market, Chinese electric vehicle brands are actively expanding their business in Indonesia and reiterated its plan to pay more attention to the ASEAN region.

More miles per gallon and less strain on your wallet at the pump.

It’s an investment in the future that pays off when you decide to part ways with your trusted vehicle.
      6. Technology Triumphs: Staying Current in the Automotive World

      The automotive industry is constantly evolving, with new technologies emerging to enhance the driving experience. Regular workshop visits keep your car abreast of these innovations.

      AMSOIL has added a new 0W-40 viscosity to its line of OE 100% synthetic motor oil to better meet the emerging demands of advanced automotive technology.
      The new OE 0W-40 is primarily for newer RAM HD trucks equipped with the 6.4-liter Hemi engine, AMSOIL noted.

      AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil is specifically designed to deliver maximum wear protection, fuel economy and emissions control for the longer drain intervals recommended by OE manufacturers, according to the company.  
      The motor oil is licensed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to meet and exceed the requirements commonly found in owner’s manuals. AMSOIL OE 100% synthetic motor oil also is friendly toward modern emissions-control systems to promote proper operation of catalytic converters for optimum service life and low exhaust emissions, according to
