BorgWarner’s Delphi Showcases New Sparta Fuel Pumps At AAPEX


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      Dayco has expanded its lineup of water pumps to include coverage for almost 30 million vehicles that require an electric water pump, with more parts expected to be introduced in 2023.  
      With Dayco’s extensive experience in the OE market, Dayco’s aftermarket team made a strategic move into the category in 2021 knowing automakers were increasingly demanding electric water pumps to enhance fuel efficiency, horsepower and customer comfort.  
      “According to 
      link hidden, please login to view, the global market for this product line reached more than $3.1 billion at the end of 2021,” said Tom Tecklenburg, director of aftermarket, Dayco North America. “It is forecasted to double to almost $7 billion by 2027, so we wanted to be at the ready to help our channel partners as the demand for these parts in the aftermarket builds.”  Originally found on high-end vehicles, today’s electric water pumps are installed in many model passenger cars, and light- and medium-duty trucks, and are notably more common in turbocharged and supercharged vehicles as well as vehicles with start/stop technology, EVs and BEVs.  
      Providing OE-quality performance and meeting critical electrical performance benchmarks, Dayco’s electric water pumps are designed as direct-fit bolt-on replacements that do not require any modifications during installation, according to the company. To prevent rust and premature failure, the pumps are engineered using stainless steel for all water-contact components. In addition, all pump bearings are self-lubricating, graphite composite, making them corrosion-resistant and compatible with engine coolants. 
      “A key benefit to having access to Dayco’s aftermarket line of pumps is that it’s a more cost effective replacement solution compared to expensive OE pumps,” said Tecklenburg. “In addition, we provide an extended 125,000-mile warranty on our all water pumps so that our customers never have to worry about a comeback claim.”

The article showcases PurolatorBOSS oil filters, which feature SmartFUSION technology, and are engineered to be the ideal match for full-synthetic oils. Noting this, the article gives customers a deeper insight into the advantages of full-synthetic-media oil filters and passes along useful tips for technicians to share with their customers.  
      Best Merchandising
      When PurolatorBOSS premium cabin air filters with Febreze Freshness were introduced, Purolator created a freestanding point-of-sale floor display to promote the product. The display contains high-end graphics and a quality finish with an application guide to assist consumers in finding the right filter for them.
      The display also includes an informative take-home pamphlet for consumers to discover the role a cabin air filter plays in their vehicle. Many buyers gave significant feedback, noting the value of the Febreze partnership, and in turn, creating a dialogue that has led to significant purchases.
      Best Video
      Purolator also was honored with an award for creating a video that emphasizes the needs and concerns of consumers regarding clean air and vehicle performance. Filtering virus aerosols, dirt, debris, pollen and more, the video highlights PurolatorBOSS as a premium cabin air filter to rid these pollutants from a customer’s vehicle.

      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.
