Sensor programme cranks up

Engine management from Denso

Published:  01 December, 2014

To celebrate three years of expansion to its engine management range, Denso introduces cam sensors and crank sensors into the fold, to join its existing ignition coils, EGR valves, MAF sensors, fuel pumps, exhaust gas temperature sensors and more. Two new fuel pumps for the Toyota Prius and Land Cruiser were added late summer and more references are due in early 2015. Denso says its EGR and EGTS ranges are unique to the aftermarket, being the only brand to offer genuine OE parts for certain applications such as the Toyota Corolla.

  • Right oil for the job 

    Denso's air conditioning range has been boosted by 29 new compressor references this month. The update covers applications for BMW 1, 3, 5, 7 Series and X5, Jeep Cherokee, Mercedes M-Class and S-Class, Toyota Yaris, RAV4, Land Cruiser and more. All of the references are OE quality. The programme now stands at 479 air con parts for 2,650 applications and include reciprocal, rotary and electrical types. All units are new, filled with the correct amount of oil and supplied as complete assemblies. Its thermal systems range also includes receiver driers, pressure switches, expansion valves and evaporators have also been added to the inventory this year. Engine cooling parts include radiators, oil coolers, heater cores, condensers, intercoolers, cooling fans and cabin blower fans. Denso spokesman Martin Pring says it's essential to use the right compressor oil: "Primarily to lubricate moving parts, i.e. the compressor and the expansion valve needle. It also enables heat to escape from the compressor. Insufficient lubrication due to universal oil is the second most frequent reason for DENSO A/C compressor damage and failure."

  • Flexible alignment 

    A mobile alignment product has been produced by Absolute Alignment, specialists in providing Rav 4 wheel alignment equipment. The Rav TD1760 WS Bluetooth wheel aligner runs on domestic power or a small generator. It has Bluetooth alignment heads and wheel clamps which fit most vehicles, turnplates and adjustable wheel stands - ideal for mobile mechanics and motorsport teams. Technical sales director Chris Dear says the advantage of this product is that it doesn't require a dedicated area to work in, "We've had our units in use in home garages and even outdoor driveways. As long as the area is reasonably flat the wheel stands can compensate for the basics, leaving the clever Rav software to do the rest."
