Bar’s Leaks Introduces a Clunker Killer: New DiFM Rendering Chemical Sodium Silicate Disables Cash for Clunkers Program Trade-Ins
HOLLY, Mich., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ — Car dealers must destroy the engines of every vehicle they take in through the Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) Program, formerly known as “Cash for Clunkers.” They can do so by using new Bar’s Leaks(R) DiFM Rendering Chemical Sodium Silicate or Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair.
Unlike Head Gasket Repair and other sodium silicate (liquid glass) products that are sold to fix vehicles, Bar’s Leaks DiFM Rendering Chemical Sodium Silicate was developed specifically to meet the requirements outlined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for CARS/Cash for Clunkers.
“We have worked directly with Department of Transportation officials and have invested considerable research to develop an engine disabling product that meets CARS specifications,” explains Clay Parks, vice president of development for Bar’s Products, manufacturer of Bar’s Leaks. “We are the only manufacturer offering such a product in large, cost-effective sizes for dealers.”
The Engine Disablement Procedures for the CARS Program call for dealers to drain all engine oil from the trade-in vehicle, re-install the oil drain plug, add two quarts of the sodium silicate solution, replace the oil fill cap and run the engine at 2000 rpm until the engine stops.
“The agency has tested this method at its Vehicle Research and Test Center and found it safe, quick, and effective,” notes the NHTSA Final Rule for CARS.
Bar’s Leaks DiFM Rendering Chemical Sodium Silicate is available in three sizes: one-gallon bottles (p/n RC128) good for two renderings, five-gallon pails (p/n RC640) used for 10 renderings and 55-gallon drums (p/n RC7040) for 110 renderings.
Bar’s Leaks Head Gasket Repair (p/n 1100) is sold in 20 oz. bottles through automotive repair outlets nationwide. Four bottles of Head Gasket Repair must be used to disable an engine per CARS standards. All Bar’s Leaks products are made in the U.S.A.
