  • ATI: Performance Made Personal
    Thursday, August 3, 2017 10:41 AM
    “ATI Performance Products Inc., has been around a long time,” says CEO J.C. Beattie, Jr. “The start was a little transmission and general repair shop in Silver Spring, Md., where my dad (Jim Beattie) was in business with a partner for the first few years. That shop, ATI Transmission, is still in business there today. The business was a small general repair type shop with a large fleet customer, Yellow Cab in D.C. There was a lot of transmission work there, Powerglides at first and later 350s and 400s.
  • Technically Speaking: It Doesn’t Move and I Cannot See Why
    Friday, December 1, 2017 12:01 AM
    A Nissan or Infiniti vehicle using the RE5R05A transmission may come into the shop with a no-move complaint. Or, a unit still under your warranty comes back with a no-move condition. And worse yet, you take it apart and see nothing wrong.

  • TASC Force Tips: ‘Yaw’ Making Us Chase Our Tails
    Friday, December 1, 2017 12:01 AM
    A few years ago, I wrote an article about thinking outside the box. Of course, in this case, the “box” is the transmission, and “outside” is ANYTHING else on the vehicle that could affect how the transmission operates (or is perceived to operate). With so many computers sharing data and the OEMs giving us little information as to how the software responds to certain problems, it can easily back us into a corner of confusion. It seems about once a year our shop gets burned chasing our tail over something that should be fairly easy to correct. Here is our latest “tail-chaser.”
  • R & R Tech: Overdrive Solenoid Déjà vu All Over Again
    Friday, December 1, 2017 12:01 AM
    About a month ago a customer came into our shop with a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country equipped with a 4.0 liter V6 engine and a 62TE transmission. He was complaining that it had a whining noise, and sometimes it would not shift and seemed to stay in the same gear. When the vehicle was hooked to the scan tool it had a code for the overdrive solenoid control circuit (P0760). The fluid was at the correct level and smelled like normal fluid; however, it was dark purple indicating possible metal contamination.
  • The Fine Art of Listening (and Asking Questions)
    Friday, December 1, 2017 12:01 AM
    Listening and hearing are two very different functions, although they are easily confused and often substituted for one another. Businesses, in general, could be far more successful if people at all levels practiced active listening.
  • Building Projects (and Relationships) in the Dark
    Friday, December 1, 2017 12:01 AM
    Reman U is a place for stories. This post is no exception, but I’m going to go slightly off-script and start by telling you the moral to this story: Most businesses hurt their relationships with customers because they don’t apply the same project management skills that they use in the shop when working with them.
    Now the story…
