Continental Adds Coverage For Hybrid-Battery Cooling Fans


Recommended Posts

Continental has expanded its line of hybrid-battery cooling fans to provide coverage for some of the most popular hybrid models on the road today.

The growing line now delivers direct-replacement fans for Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, KIA and Toyota hybrid models from 2003 to 2021.

“As the average age of hybrid vehicles on the road continues to climb, it is very important that the ‘air-cooled’ technology used to keep the battery and battery cells properly cooled continues to operate to OE specifications,” said Christina Bergstrom, Continental senior product manager. “That is why we have continued to expand our hybrid-battery cooling fan coverage to popular model years of the Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Impala and Volt, Ford C-Max and Fusion, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Toyota Camry and Prius, and more. The battery packs on these vehicles can begin to weaken after only five years of service and the cooling fans may need to be replaced in the seventh and eighth year in order to maintain required cooling performance.”

Designed as an exact replacement for the original fan, Continental hybrid-battery cooling fans restore the original battery cooling performance to the vehicle. Ensuring that the fan is properly functioning is critical to maintaining the health of the battery and the vehicle’s overall fuel economy. The fans feature an OE design, including identical mounting locations and plug-and-play electrical connections, that helps ensure an easy installation.

      AMSOIL is launching two new synthetic lubricants for ATV/UTV applications, “providing riders with high-performance upgrades from OEM-branded oils,” the company announced.  
      AMSOIL synthetic ATV/UTV motor oil now is available in 10W-30 and 5W-40 viscosities, joining existing 10W-40 and 5W-50 viscosities to round out the product line.
      AMSOIL synthetic ATV/UTV motor oil is designed to withstand the severe operating conditions found in modern ATV/UTV applications. It provides outstanding protection while racing, hauling, plowing or navigating tough terrain,” according to the company.
      “Thanks to its robust all-season synthetic formula, AMSOIL ATV/UTV oil remains fluid in sub-zero temperatures for exceptional protection during cold starts, and resists thinning and mechanical shear in extreme heat to protect ATV/UTV engines in hard-working or desert conditions,” AMSOIL added.
      AMSOIL synthetic ATV/UTV motor oil helps fight rust and corrosion to prolong equipment life. The wet-clutch-compatible oil is formulated without friction modifiers to promote smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement, allowing riders to confidently and safely push their machines to the limit.
      “We designed the ATV/UTV family of lubricants from the ground up to address the unique demands of these off-road machines,” said Len Groom, AMSOIL senior market manager – powersports. “Whether they’re used for work or play, ATVs and UTVs are frequently pushed to the limit, generating high heat that can challenge lubricants’ ability to maintain adequate protection. AMSOIL Synthetic ATV/UTV Motor Oil is designed to protect against the damaging effects of extreme heat, and we’re excited to expand the line to offer upgraded AMSOIL protection to more ATV/UTV makes and models.”
      AMSOIL 10W-30 synthetic ATV/UTV motor oil is recommended for use in applications that require a 10W-30 oil, including those made by Honda. AMSOIL 5W-40 synthetic ATV/UTV motor oil is recommended for use in applications that require a 5W-40 oil, including those made by Can-Am and Kawasaki. AMSOIL synthetic ATV/UTV motor oil is Warranty Secure and will not void ATV or UTV warranties.

      Continental has added a new line of filtration products to its fast-growing aftermarket portfolio.
      The new line features a wide range of OE-quality oil, fuel, air and cabin filters for applications on domestic and import cars, vans, SUVs and light trucks.
      “Built to ensure safe engine operation and clean air in the vehicle interior, our premium OE-quality filters are designed to deliver reliable protection against dirt, abrasion, ultrafine particles and moisture for injection systems, engines and passengers,” said Laura Huerst, Continental product manager. “These world-class filters are produced to the same quality and performance standards we apply to our original-equipment parts.”
      Continental premium oil filters are manufactured using the most advanced technologies and innovative filter media available to ensure the best engine performance and minimum fuel consumption, according to the company. This is especially important as the industry’s use of new “long-life” oils and longer service intervals continue to increase.
      The filters are offered in spin-on and immersion designs.
      Continental air filters help ensure a constant air supply to the combustion chamber by efficiently filtering out impurities and dirt particles that can clog injectors, increase engine wear and affect fuel consumption. They are designed to deliver superior efficiency and feature a high dirt-particle-absorption capacity, according to Continental.
      Continental cabin filters feature a pollen and active carbon formulation that provides the best possible atmosphere and comfort in the vehicle interior, even under adverse weather conditions.
      The cabin filters offer a very high level of efficiency and microbiological decomposition, as well as an excellent resistance to moisture. The pollen filters are made of nonwoven material that can capture more than 90% of particles with a diameter of over 2 μm. The nonwoven activated carbon filters can capture particles of 0.01 to 2 μm and effectively prevent gas, bacteria, fungi and odors from entering the vehicle’s interior, according to the company.
      Continental gasoline fuel filters employ cutting-edge technology to meet the demands of modern high-performance fuel injection systems. The filters are designed to retain impurities less than a micrometer and also separate water from fuel to help prevent power loss and potential engine damage.
