Motorcar Parts of America Adds to Educational Video Series

The video library consists of training modules that cover diagnostic procedures, repair instruction & installation tips.

Motorcar Parts of America Inc. (MPA) has announced further expansion of its Part Smart technical education series with the addition of four new videos. The videos provide technical instruction on trouble-shooting and repairing several issues technicians may encounter when dealing with starters and alternators.

“MPA understands the importance of arming today’s technicians with hands-on service and repair training,” said Rick Mochulsky, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Motorcar Parts of America. “As the level of complexity involved with car and truck repair increases, MPA is here to support. Our Part Smart library is designed to equip technicians with the next level knowledge they need to get the job done right, the first time.”

Powered by MPA, the Part Smart library consists of strategically designed training modules that cover real-world diagnostic procedures, repair instruction, installation tips, and product know-how intended to improve technical knowledge and hands-on skills. Lead by ASE Certified Part Smart technicians, courses include vehicle starting and charging systems, braking, hubs and turbos. 

Content of the four videos, found on the Part Smart playlist of MPA’s YouTube channel, is focused on:

  • Alternator damage from oil contamination on 2008–2017 Honda Accord, Pilot, Odyssey and Crosstour models with the 3.5L V-6 engines
  • Testing the alternator and charging system on 2006–2018 Nissan models with the 3.5L V6 engine 
  • Install procedures for starters, to avoid a broken solenoid, on 2003-2007 Ford F250 Super Duty Trucks
  • Starter failures on 1994-2010 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 diesel trucks
