Delphi Product and Service Solutions has added nine new fuel modules and pumps to its fuel management portfolio covering more than 2 million Chrysler, GM and Toyota vehicles from 1997 to 2012. Part numbers: FG1051, FG1052, FG1053, FG1054, FG1055, FE0465, FE0466, FE0467 and FE0468.
Visit go.delphi.com for specific part information. Inventory will be available mid Q2 2013.
SPECIAL NOTE: Two of the new modules (FG1052 and FG1053) cover the 2006-2012 Dodge Charger Police Pursuit vehicles. Police vehicles are higher mileage, which means these applications are typically more popular.
Why Fuel Pumps and Modules Fail
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.
Why Delphi for Fuel Pumps and Modules
Delphi fuel modules and pumps 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.
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.
Built to Withstand Today’s Fuels
Delphi fuel pump and module assemblies are designed to withstand harsh alcohol fuel blends and provide dependable, long-lasting performance, quick pressure rise and quiet, efficient operation.
With gasoline retailers now authorized to sell alcohol fuel blends containing 15 percent ethanol, Delphi fuel assemblies have undergone durability testing to ensure that they withstand up to 22 percent ethanol. In addition, Delphi has proactively upgraded many older model fuel pumps/modules designs with the latest technologies so that your Delphi replacement fuel pump will perform properly in today’s environment.n addition, DPSS has also added seven mechanical fuel pumps for vehicles built from 1966-1987, including Ford, American and GM applications. Part numbers: MF0054, MF0094, MF0095, MF0096, MF0097, MF0098 and MF0099. Information is available on go.delphi.com and inventory is available now.
Why Mechanical Fuel Pumps Fail
Wearable components, such as the rubber diaphragm, eventually break and cause fuel leakage. The diaphragm will wear out before the fuel pump stops operating. Because the diaphragm is sealed within the assembly, the entire mechanical fuel pump must be replaced.
Why Delphi for Mechanical Fuel Pumps
With many older-model cars still on the road, we understand that shops need to be able to offer customers a range of quality fuel systems – no matter the age of their vehicle. By increasing our coverage of mechanical fuel pumps, Delphi ensures shops have access to pumps for carbureted applications, as well as electronic fuel assemblies for today’s vehicles.
