Great Product Deserves A Great Package

Every great product deserves a great package. And here, at Airtex Fuel Delivery Systems, we believe packaging is every bit as important as the product itself.

Our protective packaging ensures the exceptional quality of the product remains constant from the time it is put through its rigorous testing and put in the box to the time it is pulled off the shelf and out of the box.


Fuel Pressure Tests

A fuel injector will be unable to inject the correct quantity of fuel if the fuel pressure is not within the specifications for that vehicle. A vehicle with a computer may be able to compensate for an incorrect fuel pressure to some extent by altering the fuel/air mixture. However, this is still likely to cause driveability problems while the engine is cold. Fuel pressure tests can generally be categorized into low-pressure tests and high-pressure tests.

Fuel Efficiency Facts

Your customers are not strangers to thinking about their vehicle’s fuel efficiency. With Memorial Day travel, gas prices surged upward, and many Americans found themselves putting off trips to Grandma’s for closer-to-home events. Obviously, different makes and models of vehicles get different mileage. Some consumers may think their fuel pump may play a role in fuel mileage, such as the one shown in this video, when the problem is usually related to an outside influence. Consumers often only hear about how vehicles get better gas mileage today than vehicles of the past but may not feel that their vehicle is getting the miles per gallon advertised when they purchased their vehicle as mentioned in this article about a recent survey from AAA.

Audi Fuel System Tech Tip: Dealing With Low Fuel Pressure DTCs

Due to fuel intrusion into the low-pressure ¬system fuel pressure sensor (G410), a false signal may be sent to the controller, resulting in a reading that is out of tolerance.

Did you know that we test 100% of our products before they leave our manufacturing facility? It’s an important part of the Airtex commitment to exceptional quality, coverage, and support.

Contaminated Fuel Can Wreck Havoc On Fuel Delivery Systems

Although cases involving contaminated gasoline are relatively rare nowaday they still occur. In many cases, the technician has replaced the fuel pump or mass air flow (MAF) sensor to address a P0171/P0174 “lean-condition” DTC with no result. In all likelihood, the technician didn’t consider the possibility that the vehicle’s fuel might be contaminated with E85 gasoline, diesel fuel, stale gasoline, or, to a lesser degree, sugar and water. The fact is that the first three fuel contaminants tend to lean out the air/fuel mixtures, while sugar and water generally cause intermittent cranking, no-start and stalling complaints.
