The Importance of Exhaust Sense and Control in Engine Management

Exhaust Sensors

Exhaust related sense and control components showing rapid increase in demand.

Increasingly stringent Euro Emission Standards have had a profound effect on aftermarket engine management demand as sales of exhaust related sense and control components show significantly faster growth than their EMS counterparts.

Vehicle manufacturers now rely on a host of electronic components to achieve cleaner combustion but as these components have to operate in some of the most hostile environments of the vehicle, they are highly prone to failure.

As a supplier with a complete engine management product portfolio, ELTA Automotive has seen a definite shift in the product pareto as exhaust sense and control components climb the ranks.

The EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve product group for example is now the second biggest and continues to show the fastest growth.

Here is a brief overview of our most popular exhaust related sense and control components.

Lucas – Lighting the way for over 140 years

Lucas Lighting History

The Beginning

Long before the Ford Model T, even before the first Mercedes ‘horseless carriage’, there was Lucas. The business was established in 1872, the same year that the petrol engine was first patented. The story of the business that Joseph Lucas founded in Birmingham, still the global HQ of Lucas today, is the story of one of the most successful automotive brands in history. Lucas has had a particularly profound impact throughout the history of vehicle lighting, from the Penny Farthing to the cars on our roads today, here are just some of the key moments.

TechASSIST: Brake Disc Shields

ELTA TECHASSIST BRAKE DISC SHIELDS

Although seen on a daily basis, brake shields, otherwise referred to as dust covers, back plates or splash panels, are largely considered an irrelevance and generally ignored by technicians, as they undertake their regular service and repair responsibilities. Perhaps the only exception is when they are sometimes removed on the misconception that without them brake cooling can be improved or benefit the vehicle’s aesthetics.

TechASSIST: Wiper Blade Troubleshooting Guide

Wiper Blade Troubleshooting Guide

Diagnosing Wiper Blade Issues

Wiper blades may not be something that we rely upon every day (especially through the summer months) but when we do need them, we need them to perform. Your wipers are all that stand between the assault on your windscreen and your driving vision, making them a critical safety component. However, the performance of your blades hangs in a delicate balance. The soft, supple rubber that sweeps away water so effortlessly is not so great at battling other environmental factors. Faced with an onslaught of road tar, tree sap, cleaning chemicals, insects, oils from exhaust gasses and damaging UV rays, wiper blades can quickly deteriorate and that simple, easy-going component becomes the bane of your driving experience. Streaking, chattering, smearing and noise are all common and whilst replacing the old blades can often cure all of these complaints, it is not always the answer. Garages and motor factors frequently report new blade customers returning and reporting the same issues. ELTA believes that in these cases, the root causes of the symptoms have been missed. Here we look at some of the most common wiper blade complaints and identify possible causes and recommended solutions and additional checks to ensure that higher levels of customer satisfaction are achieved.
