Getting to Know Your Engine Management System
The engine management system is arguably one of the smartest systems in today's vehicle. After all it is responsible for the entire combustion process – mixing the right amount of fuel to the air entering the engine and igniting the compressed air/fuel mixture in the cylinder – more than earning...
Defective Ignition. Diagnosis. Cause. Knowledge.
If the vehicle fails to start up, you can hear the engine misfiring or the car accelerates noticeably worse than normal, the ignition coil may be defective. The same applies if the engine warning light illuminates, the engine control unit switches to emergency operating mode or an error code is displayed...

Technology such as anti-lock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability are now common place thanks to the ABS sensor or wheel speed sensor. A small device, it has a big role to play; monitoring the wheel’s speed and rotation to prevent the brakes from locking. So, it’s important to always fit an OE quality part - anything less could compromise the effectiveness of these safety critical systems. Featuring weather pack connectors and plated pins, and rigorously tested to OE standards, Delphi ABS sensors deliver optimum signal stability and reliability in all conditions, for an accurate, long-lasting sensor that you can fit with confidence.
A vehicle’s ignition system must provide sufficient spark to the right cylinder, at the right time, thousands of times every minute. The timing of that all-important spark is critical. A fraction off, and it will result in any number of performance issues including misfiring, reduced power and poor fuel economy. At Delphi, we understand the importance of getting things right the first time, and it is why we put more than 100 years of OE expertise into every ignition coil we make – delivering peak power, OE performance and 100 percent satisfaction time and time again.
Diesel Particulate Filters
Increasingly stringent emissions legislation continues to drive the demand for cleaner, greener and more fuel efficient vehicles. To meet these challenges, the Diesel Particulate Filter, or DPF, is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine.
Delphi Cam Phasers
Our first-to-market, patented variable cam phasing technology includes an oil control valve, which controls the flow of oil to advance, retard or hold the camshaft position. By allowing the camshafts to always be in the optimum position, they help increase engine efficiency, improving idle stability while delivering more torque and horsepower. They also help boost fuel economy and reduce hydrocarbon emissions.
Delphi onboard charger is an aftermarket solution for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and battery electric vehicles (BEV) that converts AC to DC in order to charge the traction battery pack. Since 2015, Delphi offers a wide range of AC/DC onboard chargers in production that support fast charging for plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles. We apply the same technological expertise to our aftermarket onboard chargers for exact OE performance.
Delphi has long-term OE experience in power electronics, with a proven track record of success. Automotive power electronics help in the efficient conversion, conduction, and control of electric power in hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs).
Charge Mode 2 Cables
At Delphi, we believe that in order for hybrid and electric vehicles to become mainstream, they need to be made accessible and practical for the average consumer. That’s why we’re investing in technology to help facilitate a global charging infrastructure by offering portable electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). Delphi mode 2 charging cables fit directly into the charging inlet of a battery electric vehicle/plug-in hybrid vehicle (BEV/PHEV) and the existing electrical infrastructure to provide a safe alternative charging option at home or away.
Although the fundamentals of an ignition coil have not changed, the demands placed onthem have. Tighter emissions regulations, less engine space and requirements for better fuel economy and higher ignition voltage – up to 45,000 volts in modern cars - means that coil technology is constantly evolving. As a leading OE manufacturer, Delphi has been at the forefront of many of these changes. With more than 100 years of OE ignition system expertise, we’ve created advanced magnetic design and modelling capabilities that are second to none. The result, an efficient coil design that delivers optimum engine performance, exhaust emissions and fuel economy.
The oxygen sensor, otherwise known as an O2 sensor or lambda sensor, measures the amount of oxygen in the exhaust. Whilst this may sound like a fairly modest task, the O2 sensor is actually one of the most important sensors on any vehicle, responsible for maintaining a harmonious balance between air and fuel for optimal emissions. Too much fuel produces hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide. Too little fuel produces nitrogen-oxide pollutants. The O2 sensor helps keep this mixture just right. Because of this you’ll want to fit a quality OE brand, such as Delphi. Every one of our O2 sensors incorporates proven OE technology, for fast-acting, long-lasting performance.
Mass Air Flow Sensors
More commonly known as MAF sensor or air meter, the mass airflow sensor has one very important job; measuring the amount of air entering the engine for an optimal air-fuel ratio. Without this information, the ECU will not be able to accurately control fuel injection, resulting in an engine that will either idle roughly or worst case, not at all. But don’t worry! We’ve been producing OE MAF sensors since the 1970s. Today, we hold more than 30 patents in MAF sensing technology and signal processing, and have delivered more than 50 million OE MAF sensors for over 500 customer applications. So why not try us for your aftermarket needs too.
Combined Inverter and DC/DC Converter
Delphi Combined Inverter and DC/DC Converter (CIDD) is our OE solution for hybrids (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV), and battery electric vehicles (BEV) that delivers maximum power density in a lighter, smaller, cost-effective package.As the market for electric cars rapidly increases, independent aftermarket garages will need the right replacement part for the repair. That’s why Delphi is offering exact OE performance with our power electronic aftermarket parts.
