Professional Auto Mechanics and Specialists Recommend WD-40!
Walk into any auto repair workshop or specialist centre today and chances are, you’ll find that familiar blue-and- yellow can in the hands of professionals who rely on it the most!
From the capital city of Kuala Lumpur all the way across state borders into cities and towns, WD-40 is an indispensable part of every auto mechanic or specialist’s arsenal of solutions for every problem they encounter.
Wong Tze Yong, a Supervisor for 12 years with Tyrepro Sdn Bhd Kuala Lumpur, is an ardent fan of WD-40 Multi-Use Product, and he is very impressed with the newly launched WD-40 Specialist Automotive, which consists of a Brake and Parts Cleaner, a Throttle Body, Carb and Choke Cleaner, and a Machine and Engine Degreaser.
“We use the WD-40 Multi-Use Product primarily to loosen rusted or tight bolts, to clean a vehicle’s chrome parts, and displace moisture in wiring and electrical circuits,” explains Wong.
”The newly launched WD-40 Specialist Automotive solutions are used for very specific areas accordingly such as the the Machine and Engine Degreaser for engine overhaul. WD-40 Machine Degreaser cleans the engines and parts very well as it reaches even the hardest and most hidden parts. Best of all, I only need a small amount for quick results every time!”
Wong says he has no idea what’s WD-40’s renowned secret formula but given the chance, he would love to visit the factory in California.
“There are many other alternative brands but they contain strong hazardous chemicals, which can harm our skin when accidentally sprayed or spilled. All WD-40 range of products are super effective and also safe. This is the main reason why we’ve been using this very good American brand for well over a decade now.”
Over the border in Seremban with another automotive workshop that’s a favourite with the locals, Fook Hee Sing Lien Kee, the repair and maintenance crew are also equipped with WD-40.
The owner is Madam Lee San San, a remarkably hands-on lady boss who is as adept in changing tyres as she is in book keeping and office duties!
“I’ve been using WD-40 Multi-Use Product for over the 20 years that I’ve owned two car tyre workshops, it’s my favourite solution because it loosens rusty bolts embedded in the tyres so easily,” she says.
“The WD-40 Specialist Automotive – Brake and Parts Cleaner – has only been introduced in our market about three months ago and it’s already proving to be very effective too. It’s used to clean parts that are crucial to cars like the brake disc plate and calipers, which are essential to a car’s ability to stop. Most vehicles have disc brakes for the front and also in the rear today. The vehicle’s wheels are attached to the metal discs or rotors, which would spin along the wheels in a disc-braking system. The caliper carries out a crucial job by creating friction with the rotors in slowing down the wheels.
“As such, regular care and maintence of your vehicle is very important to keep the engines and various parts working in tip-top condition. The WD-40 Multi-Use Product has never failed me as it’s highly effective. The Brake and Parts Cleaner gives a much smoother brake effect after each cleansing.
WD-40 has won similar testimonies to its high performance from professionals servicing clients in Malaysia’s southermost state of Johore.
The Ang Leng Motor Trading Sdn Bhd is a highly regarded and trusted company in Muar for nearly 40 years. It is also a Ford, KIA and Peugeot service centre where it first began as a small workshop to becoming a 4S dealership.
Sia Ming Loon, who manages the Peugeot 3S service centre, says he needs to look no further than the WD-40 when it comes to loosening even the rustiest nuts.
“And all you need is a little squirt of WD-40 Multi-Use Product to do the job!” he says.
“WD-40 Multi-Use Product is an indispensable part of our equipment and toolkit, as it ensures we maintain a consistent quality of technical work required to please our customers. We’ve never received a single complaint after our customers have sent in their vehicles for repairs or maintenance.”
