A P1400 code means there is something wrong with the evap/egr/air/catalyst...also that 1 means its a code made by the manufacturer so its vehicle specific. whatever the problem is it could potentially damage your Catalitic Converter. SO its about something emissions wise. Its highley unlikely that it is the ECM, its possible that the ECM is recieving inaccurate inputs from another component so its making poor choices but the ECM is usually not the problem but never cancel that out...try more tests like possibly your evap solenoid may not be pulsing. if you know what your doing take a volt meter and check the evap connector and test the ground and pos(power) side, if there is a circuit issue you might be able to recognize it, if you dont know the specs it may be difficult to konw whether its bad or not. but keep trying things and reading ... hope this helped

Why is there Loss of power, bogs down and popping sound out exhaust?


Could be an engine sensor or engine mechanical ! The first thing I would do is hook up a scan tool , check for codes ,if none , check engine sensor data parameters . Do a compression test to see if engine is sound ! timing belt or chain didn't jump time ! Pop out of exhaust makes me think along the line of timing issues !

Code po172(loss of power) on 2002 pontiac sunfirer


Possible causes
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor
- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors
- Exhaust gas leaks
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
My bet would be dirty fuel injectors, Try putting fuel injector cleaner in your tank next time you fill up.

Tech notes Before replacing the mass air flow sensor, try replacing the air filter and cleaning the air flow sensor with low compress air or mass air flow sensor cleaner. Reset code and drive vehicle. If the code comes back, it may be necessary to replaced the mass air flow sensor

CAR BOGS DOWN COULD BE FAULTY TPS SENSOR, CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS AND CLOGGED FUEL FILTER, STOPPED UP AIR FILTER, FAULTY MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR.BEST BET IS TO HAVE CAR CODE SCAN MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE ENGINE BOG DOWN.HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCAN AND SEE IF YOU HAVE ANY FAULT CODES.MAKE CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.ENGINE NEED TRANSMISSION TO FOR TORQUE AND POWER TO PUT CAR IN MOTION IF TRANSMISSION NOT WORKING OKAY IT WILL PULL DOWN ENGINE POWER.

The car stalls out while driving sometimes,but it will start right back up with problem. Theres no engine light on, or anything else on.


. Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor voltages. Verify good battery voltage to the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the White/Black wire. Verify good grounds for the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the two Black wires - look for 0.05 volts or less to be ok. Check the output voltage from the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the White wire - specification is less than 0.5 volts key on engine off and 1.0 - 1.3 volts at warm idle. The Green/Orange wire at the Mass Air Flow Sensor is not used. The Mass Air Flow Sensor can test good and still be defective.

2. Make sure the timing belt is not off a tooth. Can check ignition timing to see if one bank is on. May need to get into compression on each bank but a timing belt off a tooth or two will idle poorly but can run better at higher RPM.

My 1990 toyota camry has been running poor. It seems to be missing and jumps and jerks. Off the line it just crawls until it hits 3,000 RPM then it runs fine. I have to downshift on any hill because it...


The mass air flow often goes bad on them. Did you have the vehicle scanned. Try unplugging the mass air flow and driving it. It is built into the air intake hose. If that does not change things, check the fuel pressure, and the throttle position sensor.

Hope this helped

My vw beetle stalls out. the mechanic first told


If it was the mass air flow sensor, you will have a check engine light. The small rubber hoses connected to/from the mass air flow connector might have come loose or have a crack, which will cause compression to be too low. Check there before replacing the maf sensor.

Starts good, idles good but bogs down when accelerating.


its the caburtor, it blocks the fuel from the pump and it also bogs out, factory fault you need to replace the caburator and bypass all the smog stuff, just install the o2 sensor into the air intak hose thats what i did
