Bosch Introduces New OE Platform Fuel Pump Modules For The Aftermarket

BoschBosch is introducing new Bosch Original Equipment (BOE) platforms for its premium aftermarket turbine fuel pump modules. Covering select passenger car (BOE-C) and truck (BOE-T) applications, these fuel pumps bring the benefits of advanced Bosch turbine fuel pump technology to late-model vehicles and to many earlier applications with fuel pumps built on older technology.

“The new Bosch OE-platform portfolio will offer service technicians the best value in the market in terms of quality, coverage and price point when replacing fuel modules for a select group of applications,” said Jarod Adams, manager product marketing, Gasoline Systems, Robert Bosch LLC Aftermarket North America.

According to Adams, “These products for the aftermarket are manufactured on the same production lines as their OE equivalents. Technicians can, therefore, be confident that they are installing modules that are similar in quality, fit and function to OE fuel modules.

“The superior design and industry-leading electromagnetic shielding of Bosch Turbine Fuel Pumps virtually eliminate fuel pulsation and noise, reduce hot-start problems and prevent onboard electronics interference. In addition, the core components of the turbine design never come in contact with one another, significantly reducing wear and delivering a longer service life.”

Thirty-six BOE-T part numbers will be available in the Bosch fourth quarter 2014 catalog. The BOE-C platform is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2015, for a total of more than 40 new BOE fuel pump modules in both platforms.

According to Bosch, these fuel pump module assemblies are designed to fit late-model domestic vehicles, including, 2010-2012 Chevrolet Express/GMC Savana 1500 and 2500, 2009-’11 Chevrolet Colorado/Canyon, 2009-’12 Ford Escape/Mercury Mariner and more.

“Bosch supplied the industry’s first fuel injection system with a high-pressure electric fuel pump in 1967. Since then, Bosch has been at the forefront of fuel system technology and supplies fuel pumps to virtually every vehicle manufacturer worldwide,” Adams said.

Simple Engine Fasteners Actually Complex Engineering Systems

Fasteners act much the same as a spring due to the physics of stretch and rebound.

While the design and use of automotive fasteners may seem simple, proper installation actually involves many different factors. There are many nuances in the selection and application of fasteners that can make the difference between a well-built engine and a candidate for self-destruction.

The first thing to understand is that fasteners act much the same as a spring due to the physics of stretch and rebound. A stud or bolt must be stretched to produce clamping force. For example, a typical 3/8˝ connecting rod bolt will need to be stretched some .006˝ to provide 10,000 lbs. of force.

The Next Evolution Of Fuel Injection

You may soon see a vehicle that has both direct fuel injection and port fuel injection. It could be a Toyota, Ford or other make. It can be confusing because for a long time we were told that direct fuel injection was better than port fuel injection. To get the best power and economy from an engine, some engineers realized that both injection systems could be used on the same engine.

Air Filter And Fuel Trim Diagnostics

The modern engine measures two things extremely well, the amount of air going into the combustion chamber with the mass airflow sensor (MAF), and the byproducts that are generated by the combustion event with the oxygen sensor. These measurements allow the engine’s computer to put the right amount of fuel and spark into the cylinder to give the most efficient and cleanest combustion event.
