LAS VEGAS — The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP) will be sponsoring a program on Coolant Solutions at the 2005 AAPEX in Las Vegas. The program will be held Thursday, Nov. 3 from 1:30 p.m. – 3 p.m. at the Sands Convention Center.
Presented by Kevin McCartney, the program will help attendees understand how changes in coolants are the most visible and perhaps the most commonly misunderstood area of automotive service. Attendees will learn about:
* Ethylene glycol, propylene glycol and the new, glycerin-based coolants;
* Identification of nine different green coolant formulas, as well as numerous gold/yellow, pink/red, orange, blue and purple formulas;
* The role of organic acids, silicates, phosphates, molybdates, borates and nitrates; and
* The three different types of coolant that most shops need to stock.
McCartney recently received the National Automotive Radiator Service Association (NARSA) 2004 Excellence in Education Award. He has also been selected to speak on cooling system issues at the Society of Automotive Engineers Commercial Vehicle Conference and an International Tokyo Environmental Summit. He is a five-time Ford Motor Company Certified Training Program award winner. McCartney’s experience in automotive computer diagnostics spans 28 years as a master technician, manager, instructor, master trainer, consultant and technical writer/editor.
