MAP Standards Updated for Engine Maintenance and Performance

The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) has released updates to its Uniform Inspection & Communication Standards (UICS) for Engine Maintenance and Performance. Definitions for Chemical Engine Decarbonization and Contaminated Oil System Service were added to the UICS in the sections covering the affected components.

These updates are effective immediately and come recommended by the AMRA/MAP Technical Committee as a result of the research and maintenance services being explored by the AMRA Maintenance Service Program.

As part of the ongoing effort to update and re-publish the MAP UICS bi-annually, the MAP Board has determined that interim updates, such as these, should be released as developed when appropriate.

Revised copies of the complete Engine Maintenance and Performance standard are available in electronic format from AMRA/MAP. Contact Tim Tierney at [email protected] or (301) 634-4952 with your request.
