Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket now offers a new VDO engine management and fuel supply program, featuring a range of premium, VDO-branded “OEM only” replacement parts at competitive prices.
These parts come directly from the manufacturer, Continental, and while they are branded VDO, they are the same as parts supplied to vehicle manufacturers worldwide. VDO is a trademark of the Continental Corp.
Until now, these engine management and fuel supply components were typically high priced and available only from the OE dealer, says Continental.
The VDO program offers a solution for independent shops and technicians. It includes formerly “dealer only” electronic throttle valves, air actuators, MAF and MAP sensors, fuel injectors and fuel modules. These high quality, OE parts deliver European, domestic and Asian coverage for popular and high-volume vehicles, as well as hard-to-find applications.
Continental currently offers 47 SKUs for electronic throttle valve and air actuators with coverage for over 10 million vehicles in operation (VIO). The fuel injector line features 35 SKUs and covers over 21 million VIO. There are 53 fuel module SKUs offering coverage for over 17 million VIO. The MAF and MAP sensors line rounds out at 22 SKUs and covers 5.6 million VIO.
The program was announced by Dan Caciolo, head of product management - engine management and fuel supply, who notes, “When you’re working on engine management or fuel supply systems, there’s no getting around the need to do the job right the first time, and that means using OEM parts you can trust. Aftermarket versions may look and fit the same, but not work the same. You don’t question your quality of work and we don’t think you should need to question the quality of the parts you use.”
