Delphi Product & Service
Solutions has introduced 18 new fuel modules, senders and pumps added to
the company's fuel management portfolio cover more than 12.6 million
popular vehicles built from 1985 to 2011, including Nissan, Chrysler,
Toyota, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Honda and GM applications. The
new part numbers are: FG1016, FG1045, FG1046, FG1056, FG1057, FG1058,
FG1059, FG1091, FG1092, FE0479, FE0486, FE0511, FE0512, FE0513, FE0514,
FE0515, FE0516 and FL0279.
Original equipment fuel modules, which house the electric fuel pump,
typically operate for seven to 10 years before failure, depending on a
variety of circumstances. Premature failures can be caused by extreme
hot/cold environments, contaminated fuel or excessively running a
vehicle on an empty tank. Running on empty does not keep the fuel pump
fully submerged and can cause the pump to overheat.
Delphi fuel assemblies are designed to deliver an immediate,
uninterrupted flow of fuel to the engine’s fuel rail and injectors at
the specified system pressure, resulting in more efficient operation,
the company says. Additionally, where required, fuel assemblies include
integrated fuel level sensing components that deliver an accurate
reading of the fuel level in the tank to the fuel gauge. Fuel modules
typically include a fuel vapor pressure sensor that detects any leaks in
the fuel tank or associated evaporative emissions components.
In addition, with gasoline retailers now authorized to sell alcohol fuel
blends containing 15 percent ethanol, Delphi says all of its fuel
assemblies have undergone durability testing to ensure that they
withstand up to 22 percent ethanol. In addition, the company has
upgraded many older model fuel pumps/modules designs with the latest
technologies so that the Delphi replacement fuel pump will perform
properly in today’s environment.
