The powertrain is what powers a vehicle. Your customers will need replacement automotive powertrain parts as fast as possible when their vehicle's powertrain components malfunction. You should make sure that you stock gas, diesel and hybrid powertrain systems.
Because automotive powertrain systems and components are model specific, you must stock a wide range of products so you can accommodate any customer. If space is a problem, consider finding a powertrain manufacturer who offers fast service and shipping so you can get your customers the parts they need as fast as possible. Keep these tips in mind when you are ordering your automotive powertrain systems and components:
1. Have a powertrain control module to fit popular vehicle models in your area.
2. Keep powertrain components, such as drivetrains in stock.
3. Sell powertrain components made for diesel engines.
Sell powertrain control modulesThe powertrain control module is the module in the engine that controls every aspect of the powertrain. When this module stops working, it has to be replaced before the vehicle will work properly. Keeping powertrain modules in stock to fit the most popular vehicles in your area will allow you to accommodate a customer who needs it immediately.
Offer powertrain componentsPowertrain components, such as the driveshaft may need replacing in some vehicles after a while. The driveshaft is a vital part of the powertrain assembly. Stocking a variety of driveshafts from reputable automotive powertrain suppliers lets you meet the needs of customers who need to replace this powertrain component.
Stock powertrain engine components for diesel powered enginesMany diesel powered vehicles, including larger work trucks have powertrain modules and components that will need to be replaced over time. Offering automotive powertrain systems and components to fit diesel vehicles will increase your customer base because you will be able to target businesses, such as construction companies, that use diesel powered vehicles.
- Consider selling some of the common tools needed to replace an automotive powertrain engine such as screwdrivers and ratchets with automotive adapters.
