Auto Pros Visit Pruitt's Auto Service, Louisville, KY (Video)

Auto Pros Visit Pruitt’s Auto Service, Louisville, KY

Auto Pros on the Road is a new video series that presents the Babcox Media team on location. Presented by Autolite.

In Episode 2, the Auto Pros team talks with Rocky Pruitt, the owner of Pruitt’s Auto Service. Pruitt’s Auto Service has been a family business since 1960 and is now the only remaining full-service gas station in Louisville. Pruitt’s has four full-service and two self-service gas pumps, and offers oil changes and tire service as well as more complex diagnostic and repair services for engine, chassis, air conditioning and electrical service.

Pruitt’s Auto Service in Louisville, KY, is the last full-service gas station in the Louisville area.

Pruitt says the decision to offer full-service was a case of deciding what business he really wanted to be in. Full service has disappeared, and that’s unfortunate, he explains. “Being a convenience store – selling coffee, cookies, beer and lottery didn’t interest me. We see a lot of cars that just aren’t maintained well, and that’s because of the advent of self service.”

Full service gas sales and inspections lead to regular vehicle maintenance and Pruitt’s has been servicing multiple generations of families for years. He says he wants to be the last great service station.

“We provide income for ten families as well as a valuable service to our community,” says Pruitt. “It’s all about building relationships.”

If the frictional properties are not correct, abnormal clutch engagement and disengagement called chatter will occur. Sponsored by Lubegard.

Clutch-based limited slip differentials are common on many automotive applications like trucks and SUVs, but they present a unique problem. These differentials often use different clutch configurations, either cone or flat type, made with various materials and frictional requirements. When both wheels have ample traction, the clutch plates bind together tightly, sending consistent power to each wheel. When one wheel slips, additional power is sent to the other wheel based on the frictional properties of the clutch packs. This is where the gear lubricants frictional properties play an important role in functionality and performance.
