Delphi unveils new HD3000 high pressure diagnostic toolkit

Visitors to the Delphi stand at the Automechanika exhibition Birmingham last week, were amongst the first to see the launch of Delphi’s new HD3000, high pressure diagnostic toolkit, the first of its kind in the market.

Designed to simplify the diagnosis of faults with current and future-generation diesel and petrol high pressure fuel systems, Delphi’s HD3000 allows technicians to diagnose any modern fuel injection system (including Common Rail, GDi, EUI and EUP), on a vehicle with a single, affordable tool.

“The patented HD3000 allows diagnosis of high pressure fuel system faults across every vehicle category, from petrol light duty to diesel heavy duty, opening new repair opportunities for diesel workshops,” says Alex Ashmore, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions. “It substantially reduces the investment needed to undertake this type of repair, with the reassurance of trusted performance, from one of the leading suppliers of OE-fuel system technologies.”

Combining safety, flexibility and very high pressure capability, it allows technicians to safely set and electronically control any pressure test point of an engine, up to 3000bar, in order to investigate the full range of pressures and analyse the performance of the fuel injection system.

Comprised of the key mechanical and electrical devices required to confirm a high-pressure fault and locate its cause, Delphi’s HD3000 kit incorporates eight dedicated test routines including the ability to test the pumps capacity under cranking and idle speed, analyse the injector’s backleak at various pressures and conduct a vehicle HPV leak test. It can also perform a cleaning procedure to remove the lacquering off the IMV, returning it to its original OE specification.

All this can be achieved without changing any ECU parameter, dismantling the fuel injection system, or taking the vehicle out on a road test – saving technicians and workshops valuable time, resulting in faster service turnarounds.

Delphi’s HD3000, part number YDT840, will be available to order end of June. For more information on the tool visit
