Replace parts not whole pumps

Fuel Parts diesel components from SMPE

Published:  19 August, 2014

The Fuel Parts range has expanded to enable you to replace common rail assemblies, pressure sensors and valves instead of the whole diesel pump or rail. The initial offering offered by SMPE has 50 part numbers for around 350 applications including the Renault Clio, Citroen Berlingo and BMW 330D/530D and X5. The complete Fuel Parts diesel catalogue is available online and is also provided through Autocat+.

  • Original material 

    The AP brand of clutch parts from SMPE covers 95% of the aftermarket, offering clutch systems, solid flywheels, clutch cover assemblies, drive/friction plates, concentric slave cylinders and clutch/cylinder kits. The range is made up of over 1,300 kits for more than 80 vehicle manufacturers. During the manufacturing process, only original equipment-approved suppliers are used for materials, for facings, castings etc. to ensure high quality parts that are interchangeable with original equipment fitted to the vehicle by the VM.

  • No more smokey diesels 

    A cleaning additive from Liqui Moly is said to restore an engine's original emission values by regularly adding the product to the fuel tank. Diesel Purge dissolves deposits in the injectors and the fuel system - the main culprit to deteriorating emission values. It is also designed to improve ignition performance of diesel fuel, protect against corrosion and prevent partial-load knocking. When faced with a particularly smokey diesel you can give the engine an instant hit by disconnecting the fuel line and putting the end in the can of Diesel Purge and starting the engine to make it run on pure additive, to achieve the best results. You can also fill up the new diesel filter with the product when a car comes in for a regular inspection so the car runs on additive for the first few minutes. This will remove air out of the new filter and help the vehicle pass the MOT exhaust test too.

  • Old and new technologies working together 

    Turbochargers play a significant role in downsized engines which need to also provide great fuel economy and performance while meeting stricter emission regulations. 'Chargers with variable geometry were developed to optimise the turbo for both low and high-engine speeds, to reduce traditional turbo lag to improve engine efficiency, fuel economy and drivability. Many manufacturers and distributors have a new-only policy when replacing failed variable geometry turbochargers due to the specialist nature of the repair. Delphi has 40 years' remanufacturing experience under its belt and all replaced parts on its reman 'chargers undergo rigorous tests to OE specifications. 150 new turbochargers will join the programme this year to cover 75% of European applications, both diesel and petrol. A practical training course is available, detailing its operation, surrounding system components and best practices for diagnosing and identifying failures, such as boost pressure and oil damage, as well as correct maintenance and installation techniques. Diagnostic support on its DS series of tools will help pinpoint where in the intake or exhaust circuit a fault has occurred as a turbocharger fault code may be caused by a faulty air flow meter, EGR valve or air leak.

  • Ready for Euro 6? 

    Euro Six regulations came into force at New Year, further limiting the amount of particulate matter and nitrogen oxides allowed in new diesel vehicle emissions. Draper Tools has a kit which identifies the quality of Adblue being sold or used within a vehicle - the quality of which is paramount to the effectiveness of the selective catalytic reduction technology used to reduce NOx emissions. The device measures the mixture of urea to see if it's at the correct ratio of 32.5%.

  • Filter out water 

    Diesel3Tech technology is used by Sogefi - manufacturers of the Fram, CoopersFiaam and Purflux filter brands - to guarantee water separation efficiency to extend service life and replacement intervals. This was developed to work with new diesel fuels based on ultra-low sulphur diesel and first gen bio-diesel. These have the potential to damage high pressure injection systems. The first two layers of the filter element prevent particles entering the fuel and the third is a water-repelling mesh. This system suits all European diesel blends containing up to 30% biodiesel. Spokesman Nigel Duffield states: "Today's diesel engines are more demanding than ever in terms of system equipment and maintenance. In particular, they are extremely sensitive to contamination. A dirt particle can damage the fuel system irreparably, from the pump right through to the injector, and the smallest of water droplets can cause very expensive damage. Diesel3Tech sets new standards of diesel filter performance in these areas. Our other high performance diesel filter solutions include electronic fuel heaters and water sensors, for example, to fully protect modern Common Rail injection systems."
