TROY, Mich. Delphi has added expanded coverage in its engine management and fuel management portfolios.
Delphi’s new O2 sensors for Chevrolet, Hyundai and Saturn applications cover 1.7 million vehicles on the road today. The company says the construction and design of Delphi O2 sensors provide improved fuel economy over aging sensors and long-lasting, reliable operation. Delphi includes an anti-seize compound and protective coating on the sensor element that eliminates contaminants, such as oil or antifreeze, which can trigger the “malfunction indicator light.” Delphi’s O2 sensors are tested to OE standards for durability, performance and environmental compliance.
Delphi MAF sensors represent an expansion of Delphi’s mass air flow program and cover more than 19 million vehicles on the road in North America, including GM, Mazda, Subaru and Toyota applications. According to Delphi, an all-new “probe-only” design eliminates the need for an additional flow tube, which helps shops manage inventory by reducing shelf space. Designed and manufactured to OE specifications, these new MAF sensors eliminate the need to replace the core (plastic flow tubes) and are easy to install, which lowers labor costs, the company points out.
Delphi ABS Sensors cover more than 1.5 million BMW, Audi and Mazda vehicles on the road today. Using its OE technology, Delphi has improved the OE design by plating the connectors to help prevent corrosion and failure commonly caused by internal and cable short circuits, interrupted cables, mechanical damage to the sensor wheel, soiling and increased wheel bearing free play. Delphi says its comprehensive portfolio of sensors for domestic and import applications monitor vehicle functions to deliver accurate feedback to control modules, ensuring optimal engine performance.
Delphi says its new fuel pump module assemblies, which are designed with the benefit of more than 100 years of OE heritage, cover more than 750,000 North American vehicles on the road today and include: all 2003-2002 model year Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer 4.0L flex fuel V6 vehicles; and 2008-07 model year Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500/2500 HD vehicle applications with 78.7-inch and 97.6-inch bed lengths.
All of these newly released fuel pump module assemblies feature Delphi’s Gen IV turbine pump, which utilizes the latest OE fuel pump technologies and materials and is designed to withstand today’s harsh alcohol fuel blends, according to Delphi. Designed to meet or exceed all OE vehicle manufacturer specifications, the new assemblies include Delphi’s OEM-grade Packard wiring and electrical connectors for increased performance, durability and reliability over other aftermarket fuel pump module assemblies, the company says.
Inventory on the ABS sensors and oxygen sensors will be available in March. MAF sensors will be available March and April. Fuel pumps will be available April 2012. For information on the new parts, visit go.delphi.com
