Automotive Equipment Service FAQs
Are your lift technicians ALI certified?
Yes, all of our lift technicians are ALI certified. We hire, train, and retain the best technicians in Southern California. We also invest in their ongoing training and development by providing ongoing factory and manufacturer training.
How often should a lift be inspected by certified technicians?
At least once per year. Some lift manufacturers recommend more frequent inspections depending on the type of lift, frequency of use, and operating environment. OSHA requires automotive lift certification for all vehicle lifts/hoists on an annual basis.
What documentation is provided at the end of a lift inspection?
At the end of inspections, technicians are required to provide the shop manager with written inspection certificates for each lift. Each lift receives a sticker with an ID number and date of inspection.
What does a typical lift inspection entail?
Here is a list of some of the typical checks done during a lift inspection:
- Examine accessible structural components, including welds, for any evidence of overloading, misuse, or abuse.
- Examine electrical components and wiring.
- Check lift controls to ensure accessibility, an unobstructed view of the lift, and an automatic return to neutral or “off” when released.
- Locate appropriate lift documentation, safety instructions, vehicle lifting information, lift-safety labeling, and capacity labeling.
- Confirm adequate clearances around the lift.
- Check all fastening devices for tightness and proper fit.
- Check lowering speed over the full down travel of the lift
- Operate the lift through its full cycle and check functionality of the positive stop; check to see if the lift locks engage in the fully extended position.
- Check lubrication points for cleanliness, integrity of fitting, and presence of lubricant.
- Check all chains and cables for excessive slack.
- Check all potential pinch points.
What is included in a typical lubrication system inspection?
Here is a list of some of the typical checks done during a lubrication system inspection:
- Manually activate systems and observe cycle completion, warning devices, and system operating pressures; check the PSI.
- Check level of lubricant in reservoir and record.
- Check the condition of lubricants.
- Check settings on clock; ensure that the system is activating at the correct times.
- Check control cabinet for cleanliness and damage.
- Clean filters, strainers, or screens as required.
- Check piping and hoses on primary and secondary distribution systems for broken lines, leaks, blockages, or kinks.
- Ensure proper metering device operation.
- Check distribution lines between metering devices and lubrication points for leaks or damage.
- Clean interior of electrical panels and controls.
- Check for loose electrical connections.
- Check pressure gauges and calibrate as needed.
- Check functionality of warning and safety devices.
What is included in a typical air compressor inspection?
Here is a list of some of the typical checks done during an air compressor inspection:
- Perform visual inspections by looking for oil leaks, dirty filters, and any other problems that may cause future issues.
- Perform audio inspections by listening to the compressor while it is running for anything abnormal to check for problems that may need to be urgently addressed.
- Check the oil to ensure a steady supply of clean oil for optimal performance; oil specifications should be checked weekly to ensure that they are within the manufacturer’s specifications.
- Wash the cooler to ensure that the air can properly cool—a dirty cooler can cause major issues.
- Key compressor parts that are inspected include:
- Air Filter
- Oil Filter
- Motor Bearings
- Intake Vents
- Other factors that are inspected include:
- Air Dryer
- Oil Level
