      Standard Motor Products (SMP) has introduced 365 new part numbers for October.
      Included in the release is new coverage for more than 107 product categories, and 110 part numbers for 2021 and 2022 model-year vehicles.
      SMP’s commitment to providing replacement parts for hybrid and electric vehicles through its Standard and Four Seasons brands is evident in this release. The October new-number announcement added new part numbers for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E, 2017-2011 Nissan Leaf, 2022-2010 Toyota Prius and more.
      The addition of more than 130 new sensors, switches, actuators and connectors also expands Standard’s powertrain-neutral coverage.
      The Standard ADAS program continues to grow. The October new-number announcement includes new park-assist cameras and park-assist sensors. Cruise-control distance sensors are now available for popular Ford and Lincoln trucks and SUVs, and lane-departure system cameras have been added for the 2021-2019 Ford Ranger and 2016-2015 Honda CR-V.
      “The 365 products added to our product line with the recent release are a welcome addition to our ever-expanding programs,” said John Herc, vice president engine of management marketing, SMP. “Once again, Standard Motor Products is proving its dedication to our loyal distribution partners and service providers, supplying them with the parts they need and the quality they trust.”
      The Standard turbocharger program expands with each release. This month, three new turbocharger kits add coverage for more than 1.2 million popular Ford vehicles including the 2017-2015 F-150. The program wouldn’t be complete without related parts, which include turbocharger oil lines, turbocharger outlet elbows, turbocharger coolant lines, turbocharger oil-drain tubes, turbocharger wastegate solenoids and charge-air coolers.
      Standard’s collision repair program continues to expand with the addition of radiator active grille shutter assemblies for the 2019-18 Ford F-150 and 2018-2015 Edge. Additionally, ride-height sensors have been added for popular vehicles such as the 2020-2015 Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Suburban. Power door-lock actuators, trunk-lock actuator motors, and tailgate-lock actuator motors are just a few more of the collision products also included in the release.
      Standard has released new transfer-case motors for more than 7 million vehicles. This growing line now covers a multitude of popular applications such as the 2022-2011 Dodge Durango, 2022-2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2016-1999 Ford F-Series Super Duty.
      Four Seasons, SMP’s Temperature Control Division, has added 94 new part numbers to its product line, including 19 new hose assemblies covering more than 2.7 million domestic and import vehicles. Popular applications include the 2022-2017 Honda CR-V, 2020-2016 Honda Pilot, 2019-2013 Ford Explorer and 2019-2014 Ford Interceptor Utility.
      Also new from Four Seasons are new air door actuators, adding exclusive coverage for the 2019-2009 Toyota Corolla and 2018-2006 Toyota RAV4. Additionally, many heater valves, filter driers, condensers, evaporators, heater cores and more are part of the release, helping Four Seasons to provide technicians with the parts necessary for a complete A/C service.
      All new applications are listed in the catalogs found at

      Counterman’s “
      link hidden, please login to view” contest challenges our readers to solve an automotive riddle, for a chance to win $100. And each month, we receive hundreds of responses from aftermarket professionals trying to guess the model of the vehicle depicted. The correct answer for the August/September contest is the Honda Clarity. The winner is Don Maloney, store manager at Carquest in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
      Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.
      CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?
      DM: About 15 years or so.
      CM: What do you like most about your job?
      DM: Talking to people about vehicles and helping them solve their problems – that’s usually the most fun. And you get to meet some very interesting people and hear some interesting analysis.
      CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?
      DM: What I like is the customer who comes in and buys oil and an oil filter and says, “OK, where do I pull the car around to get this done?” That’s probably the best question we get asked. We even get that question with belts and alternators and starters.
      CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?
      DM: The coolest car I ever owned was a 1986 Mercedes 190E Cosworth. It was a four-door sedan with a Cosworth-built engine. It came standard with Recaro seats and a dogleg five-speed transmission. It was what they call a homologation car, which means that Mercedes had to build a certain number of these cars [for street use] and put them on the market for sale to qualify for a race series.
      CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?
      DM:  When you have seven grandkids, you pretty much have your days off occupied. That is my hobby, pretty much.
      CM: What’s your dream car?
      DM: My dream car would be a Mercedes 190E Evolution. There may be a few floating around the United States, but way beyond anything I could ever afford.
