The compact unit easily fits into tight spaces. This video is sponsored by Cardone.

Today, we are going to discuss power steering filtration.

Debris in power steering fluid is the primary cause of power steering system failure. (show vials of clean PS fluid and dirty PS fluid). It travels throughout the entire steering system, eroding sealing surfaces and clogging small passages, leading to expensive repairs. When replacing a power steering component, it’s essential to flush the system, as well as install a CARDONE In-line Power Steering Filter. They feature internal magnetic filtration and have been proven to reduce comebacks and prevent future failures due to contamination.

The compact, sleek unit has been specifically designed for power steering systems and easily fits into tight spaces. This is a big advantage over other filter brands that feature larger, clumsy designs that make installation awkward. The sure-grip barb connection ensures a tight grab on the hose and is guaranteed not to leak.

On the inside, this magnetic mesh filter collects tiny metallic particles and other contaminants down to 190 microns and is removeable for service and easy cleaning (show filter taken apart). The filters are the designed with built-in bypass for continuous flow throughout unit life, but for best performance, we recommend service every 30,000 miles. A service reminder label is included in the package that can be affixed under the hood to alert technicians of its presence.

The original aluminum filter comes in 3 sizes to fit 1/2”, 3/8” and 5/8” hoses, and our plastic filter fits 3/8” hoses providing the same filtration benefits as its aluminum counterpart at a value price.

By installing CARDONE In-line Power Steering Filters, your customers can have peace of mind knowing the steering system will be clear of damaging debris for many miles to come.

He gained C-suite level experience as the COO of a health and fitness company before joining forces with his dad to create Schwartz Advisors, an M&A and growth consultant for companies in the automotive aftermarket.In some ways, we sat around the dinner table one day and my dad said, I've got an idea. What do you think about this?" Rick explains. "One of [his goals was] to start a company that would be an advisor to the industry. That's a company that didn't exist when [he] owned his WDs. At the time I was running a company in San Diego1, and he knew that I wanted to do something more entrepreneurial and something that touched on the private equity world. He wanted to see something that could really provide value to the industry."In 2006, Schwartz Advisors was born, and since then, the firm has added 12 industry experts from different segments to consult on various deals and strategies.In this episode of AMN Drivetime, sponsored by AISIN, Rick delves into:The reasons why he initially studied international relations (1:00)Lessons he learned from working at large companies in different industries early in his career (1:44)How Schwartz Advisors was born (2:54)The breadth and depth of Schwartz Advisors' expertise (4:02)Trends in M&A in the macroeconomy and the automotive aftermarket (8:02)The types of business that are a good fit for the "buy-side" and "sell-side" of acquisitions (10:22)Lessons Rick learned from his father, Mort (12:42)Rapid Fire questions (14:18) AMN Drivetime is sponsored by AISIN. Find more episodes here.
