Fog Out Odors
Eagle One recently introduced the Odor Eliminator Fogger, which permanently eliminates the odor of smoke, pets, food and mildew on contact. The fogger attacks odor in every crack and crevice of a vehicle unlike air fresheners and fragrance sprays that only mask the odor. Its unique formula contains Ordenone, which attaches to the malodor molecules of all kinds, changing their chemical structure to no longer remain airborne and unpleasant. Simply set off the fogger in the vehicle, wait 10 minutes, then open the doors and let it air out for one minute.

View Like a Pro
Mitchell 1 recently updated its ProDemand repair, diagnostic and maintenance information program with ProView, a troubleshooting tool to help service professionals relate diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and symptoms to components. Once a code or symptom is selected in ProDemand, ProView provides all of the known fixed components for that code or symptom, or multiple codes and symptoms, based on real-world content. This allows technicians to quickly see the most commonly repaired components and plan a diagnosis strategy to resolve the problem. The ProView feature is graphic-based, delivering an alternate view of possible repair solutions via three charts: a radial graph that shows the relationship of the code or symptom to possible at-fault components, a bar chart that lists the most commonly replaced components for that code or symptom and a graph that shows the mileage at which the most common component is replaced.
