He made me feel like we were working as a team, not just telling me what to do. Together we quickly got to the bottom of an unusual no-start problem and I was able to get the car back to the owner on time. ALLDATA Community has proven to be a welcome asset to my business. </p> <p> John B.,&nbsp;Shop Owner<br> &nbsp; </p> </blockquote> <blockquote> <p> When I need to talk directly with a master tech about a particularly challenging diagnostic problem, I can use the ALLDATA Diagnostic Hotline. I’m able to get in touch with a live person to brainstorm some ideas — just like the old days. ALLDATA Community has proven to be very beneficial in boosting our productivity. Thanks guys for your great advice! </p> <p> Kevin M.,&nbsp;Shop Owner<br> &nbsp; </p> </blockquote> <blockquote> <p> Right from the start, your diagnostic technician identified&nbsp;the cause of an elusive misfire problem.&nbsp;After performing a ‘running compression check,’&nbsp;recommended by your diagnostic technician, we found a twenty-percent compression variance in cylinder number four. After removing the valve springs, we found an extremely loose valve guide in that cylinder. Problem solved! Thanks so much for your help! </p> <p> Jeffery & Lynn P.,&nbsp;Shop Owners </p> </blockquote> <blockquote> <p> ALLDATA Community was very beneficial when I had a Tahoe in with difficult adjustable rear suspension problem. I was able to talk with a master tech on the Diagnostic Hotline and he walked me through a detailed diagnosis. Together we fixed the problem. My customer was excited to get their vehicle repaired and for a fair price. ALLDATA Community is something I can believe in. </p> <p> Jason M.,&nbsp;Shop Owner </p> </blockquote><p><a href="https://www.alldata.com/product-quote/customer-quotes" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Product - Quote ALLDATA Community Sat, 27 Feb 2016 00:23:00 +0000 Thomas Bianchini 2288 at https://www.alldata.com Request A Demo Today! https://www.alldata.com/product-text-center/request-demo-today <p class="ttlTxt-d" id="sPrc" style="color: rgb(16, 100, 128);
