What Is The Direct Fit Interchange?

 In Engines & Transmissions, Used Auto Parts

Finding an auto part that fits just like the original often feels like a quest for a needle in a haystack — especially when you’re on a budget. Scouring through endless listings, negotiating prices, and settling for subpar quality is a frustrating and costly endeavour. At Logel’s, we eliminate that stress with our knowledge of the Direct Fit Interchange. 

After multiple decades in the industry, our team is well equipped with the knowledge and tools to find a part that will work perfectly for your vehicle, even if it isn’t one that was made for your specific vehicle. Using the model, make, and year of your vehicle, we can provide you with a list of qualified parts quickly and at the best price. 

What Is Direct Fit Interchange (DFI)?

A DFI system is a database for interchangeable car parts. It helps our team locate parts that will fit your car but may have been for different models. For example, Ford might have sourced and used the exact same part for their 2005 Focus as they used in their 2006 Fusion. By cataloguing and cross-referencing parts by manufacturer and/or product number we are able to use our DFI system to source a range of used car parts.

Here are some of the key DFI benefits:

  • Cataloging and Matching: Think of DFI as a matchmaking service for car parts. It identifies which parts will fit multiple vehicle models, even if those parts weren’t made for those specific cars.
  • Speed and Efficiency: The DFI quickly narrows down options for the best fitting parts, allowing you to make an informed choice swiftly.

  • Budget-Friendly Choices: Because the DFI can find parts that fit various models, we can offer you solutions that are easier on your wallet.

  • Providing Options: With DFI, we’re able to provide you with a list of compatible parts, giving you the freedom to choose based on your priorities.

    I am looking for a compound breather pipe for my 1992 Honda Civic SI Hatchback. The Honda part # is 17135P06A00. This part is on 92-95 Civics and may also be on later models. I am unable to determine which ones but surely you would know. An internet search tells me that the part is either discontinued or unavailable. My local dealer tells me it MAY be available in September. I would appreciate it if you could advise me where I should look for this part and/or if you would have it available. Much thanks, John, Ottawa

    Hello there, I´m looking for an engine wiring harness for a GMC Safari 1998 (fitted with a 4.3 V6 L35 Vortec OHV12). This part is a harness, engine wiring, for Chevrolet Trucks, and GMC Trucks cars. It fits for Chevrolet Trucks Astro AWD, and Astro 2WD, GMC Trucks Safari AWD, Safari 2WD, Safari XT AWD, and Safari XT 2WD for the U.S. in 1998. General Motors also fitted the S-10, Sierra, and maybe Jimmy and Tahoe with the same Vortec 4.3 V6 Engine but I am not sure if the part pulled from these models is interchangeable to a 198 Safari. The OEM part number is 15328243. part group 02.525. Approx. dimensions 12.00 in × 23.10 in × 19.40 in. I´d really appreciate your feedback on this last comments.

    I have a 2001 oldsmobile aurora v8. I need to find a radiator so I was hoping for some other vehicles that have interchangeable parts. Thank you.
