      Delphi Technologies, a brand of BorgWarner, unveiled its new Sparta fuel-pump line at AAPEX, showcasing the latest offering in its expanded aftermarket portfolio.
      Designed specifically for older and high-mileage vehicles, Sparta made its AAPEX debut with updated visuals and new packaging. The Sparta brand offers another revenue opportunity for distributors and customers, targeting a specific subgroup of older vehicles.
      The company also demonstrated its fuel-tank cleaning tool live at the booth. The tool is designed for scenarios when the fuel tank is difficult to drop or full of fuel; the magnetic head is effective at collecting debris from hard-to-reach areas of the tank. The cleaning tool has been well-received by technicians for helping optimize their productivity and deliver customer satisfaction.
      link hidden, please login to view Visitors learned more about other aftermarket product lines, including steering and suspension and engine management. Since the initial launch of the steering and suspension program in 2017,
      BorgWarner has added more than 5,000 Delphi-branded SKUs, or over 150% growth to the product line now totaling 8,500 SKUs, including more than 2,000 control arms.
      All chassis product offerings undergo thorough dimensional and material analyses including extreme temperature, fatigue, three-axis and salt-spray testing in order to ensure premium product, durability, quality and the perfect fit. Further expansion is planned across products such as tie rods, sway bar links, control arms, and ball joints, where the company currently has 98% sales coverage across both domestic and import applications. Similarly, BorgWarner has continued to expand its Delphi Technologies engine-management line by 175 SKUs over the last year, with engine-sensor coverage and ignition coils.
      Exhaust-gas temperature sensors, a newer part added to the Delphi Technologies portfolio, now has nearly 50 part numbers spanning both domestic and import applications.
      Delphi Academy
      Booth visitors also learned about the Delphi Academy, which has been designed with input from technicians to ensure it caters to their needs. It has more than 30 courses run by ASE-certified technicians, with both hands-on and virtual options available on the platform. Technicians who lead those training courses were at AAPEX, offering the chance for visitors to learn from the experts. Several courses for electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles are already available through the Delphi Academy with updates planned in the future.
      For commercial-vehicle distributors and technicians, BorgWarner brought the recently launched Cummins HPI Application Kit for the Hartridge HK1400 Cambox. The HK1400 is an all-makes solution for testing electronic unit injectors and electronic unit pumps and is an essential choice for diesel workshops servicing diesel commercial vehicles. The HPI Application Kit is a set of dedicated ancillary hardware that replicates real-world conditions for accurate HPI testing.
      Additionally, the Hartridge Sabre CRi Expert was displayed at the show. This advanced, compact, all-makes common rail injector tester comes with new test plans, new test steps, injector coding feature and a 2,700-bar rail pressure range enabling testing of LD, MD and HD common rail applications. Its features and functions make the Sabre CRi Expert a future-ready testing solution that helps shops stay ahead of the market, according to the company.

      Advance Auto Parts announced the opening of a new Carquest Auto Parts and Worldpac distribution center in Bolton, Ontario.
      The 580,000-square-foot facility is the first to combine Carquest and Worldpac DC operations under one roof. 
      Located at 8399 George Bolton Parkway, the new facility has the capacity to house more than 350,000 automotive parts serving the majority of domestic and import vehicles in Canada, according to the company.
      The new Carquest and Worldpac distribution center employs more than 200 team members, with many team members living locally in Bolton, Caledon and surrounding communities.
      “We are thrilled to warehouse our combined Carquest and Worldpac product offering in one building, providing our stores, branches and customers with the largest assortment of brands and superior service,” said Steve Gushie, president of Carquest Canada. “This distribution center enables us to stock more parts than ever before and its technology and quick replenishment system will help us deliver product to our customers quickly and efficiently. We appreciate the hard work of everyone at Carquest and Worldpac to make this happen.”
      Today, the facility serves more than 130 Carquest stores and Worldpac branches across central and eastern Canada. These stores and branches serve more than 37,000 professional repair shops and automotive dealerships. This includes 500 TechNet Professional repair shops.
      “With more motorists holding onto their vehicles longer, an expanded product offering is required to keep those older vehicles on the road,” said Jason Yurchak, Worldpac senior vice president, Canadian operations. “Bringing our Worldpac parts inventory together with Carquest under one roof allows us to carry parts for virtually every type of vehicle on the road today. Our DC team offers nightly replenishment of every Worldpac and Carquest facility with multiple same day deliveries, ensuring customers get the right part at the right time.”
      The distribution-center team plans a formal grand opening and ribbon cutting event in spring 2023.

      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.
