TROY, Mich. Delphi introduces 19 new oxygen sensors covering more than 1.2 million North American Audi, Volkswagen, BMW, Cooper, Nissan, Infiniti, Mazda and Honda vehicles from 1995 to present.
The new part numbers include: ES11079, ES11080, ES11081, ES11082, ES11083, ES11084, ES20386, ES20387, ES20388, ES20389, ES20390, ES20391, ES20392, ES20393, ES20394, ES20395, ES20396, ES20397 and ES20403.
Delphi oxygen sensors provide contamination resistance to silicone, phosphorous and other fuel and oil additives due to a patented protective sensor coating. The company's exclusive poison-protection coating protects elements from contaminants, which can trigger “check engine lights” and premature sensor failure. Contaminated sensors can cause engines to burn up to 25 percent more fuel and send excess carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions into the atmosphere, Delphi says.
They also feature OE connectors and wire lengths within three inches of OE specifications. Nearly three-quarters of the line is the exact OE length, which means easier installations without splicing and fewer customer comebacks, according to the company. Delphi’s dry-to-touch, anti-seize compound means faster installations as well, the company says.
Delphi oxygen sensors deliver the industry’s fastest light-off time of six seconds. This allows the O2 sensor to go into closed loop with the ECM faster, reducing pollutants and improving emissions.
Delphi oxygen sensors feed data to the ECM, which helps the engine run as efficiently as possible while maintaining fuel mileage and reducing emissions, the company says. Because the amount of oxygen the engine pulls in can vary due to altitude, air temperature and engine load, the O2 sensors optimize combustion by monitoring oxygen levels so the proper amount of fuel can be combined with the air.
Inventory will be available in the fourth quarter of 2012. Visit go.delphi.com
