There is a TSB update to the air pump and requires the inlet hose and filter to be reroute up thru the inner fender and in towards the air cleaner housing. The new parts are sold seperate at the dealer or you can install similar hose and filter to accomplish this. Make sure to clear the DT codes after replacement.

I replaced my secondary air check valve on my 2001 chevy tahoe but code 1416 still comes up. what else can i check


here is what i found on p1416.



P1416 Chevrolet
P1416 Chevrolet - Secondary Air Injection System Bank 2
Possible causes
- Faulty Secondary Air Injection (AIR) pump
- Secondary Air Injection check valve bank 2
- Secondary Air Injection (AIR) pump electrical circuit fault
- Blocked Secondary Air Injection (AIR) system

When is the code detected?

The P1416 code is set when no O2 sensor voltage change is detected by the Engine Control Module (ECM).


Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)


P1416 Chevrolet Description
An Secondary Air Injection (AIR) pump is used on this vehicle to lower tail pipe emissions on start-up. The PCM supplies a ground to the AIR pump relay, which energizes the AIR pump. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the HO2S voltages to diagnose the AIR system. During the AIR test the PCM activates the AIR pump during closed loop operation. When the AIR is activated, the PCM monitors the HO2S voltages and short term fuel trim values for both banks of the engine. If the AIR system is operating properly, the HO2S voltages should go low and the short term fuel trim should go high.

Check engine light on w/po410 code what part is bad


Yours must have the California emission system. They use a secondary air injection system to help reduce emissions. It could be that the pump has gone bad. Have you tried to reset the code? I've seen cars that had this problem and just to erase the code took care of the check engine light. If that doesn't work, make sure your electrical wires are ok, and plugged in. Check to make sure you have voltage at the plug at the pump motor, you may have to start the car to check it. If there is no power there, then check your fuses and relays.

My check engine light is on i keep getting the code po410 and it is ideling really high sometimes


p0410 is an emission problem, Check the fuse for the air pump. Listen to see if it comes on when the engine is started, colder start. Make sure that the vacuum lines is still on, both ends. Common Problems That Trigger the P0410 Code.
  • Defective Air Pump Check Valve(s)
  • Faulty Air Pump or Air Pump Relay
  • Faulty air control solenoids or vacuum lines
  • System may be restricted or plugged with carbon.

Service Engine Soon light came on. Took the car to Auto Zone the code P0410 popped up. What does this mean?


This is a secondary air system malfunction code.....

The Secondary Air System pumps outside fresh air into the Exhaust System during cold engine start up. This additional air helps burn up the highly rich exhaust emissions that are produced when the engine is warming up. The Secondary Air System typically has an Air Pump and some tubes or plumbing to route the air. The system also has a solenoid and Check Valve(s) to control the air flow.

Common Problems That Trigger the P0410 Code
  • Defective Check Valve(s)
  • Faulty Air Pump or Air Pump Relay
  • Faulty air control solenoids or vacuum lines
  • System may be restricted or plugged
Let me k now which direction you want to head in and we will check further

Obd code of p0411 on a 1999 ford mustang 3.8 v-6 what do I check to correct


That's s failure of the secondary air pump. It'll have to be changed. It's an emissions component meant to help with cold start emissions. It won't cause engine running trouble but at inspection time you'll fail for smog. Change it before then and you'll be fine.

Engine light on...onstar says its the secondary air emissions


this code is caused by the electric engine air injection pump, it is known as the "Secondary Air Injection System" and is part of the emission controls on your car, this is all to common a problem and requires the air injection pump assembly to be repalaced to correct the problem, then the code must be erased.

1981 ford bronco failed emissions twice


Look behind the motor, next to the firewall. There's a vacuum check valve that keeps the air gulp pump from pressurizing the crankcase. Mine was shot; had the same symtoms. Also, make sure that the EGR valve is closing at low idle.

You don't need an engine light to check the codes. First, do a KOEO (key on, engine off), but, let me tell you, when this happened to me (1986 Full size with 302 EFI, multiport injection) NOTHING showed up. No one, not Ford, not emission specialists, nada, knew the vacuum check valve existed.

By the way; are you getting motor oil in the air filter housing?

Mazda rx8 fault code p0410 secondary air system we have a mazda rx8 2006 model, p0410 fualt code has come up, want should we looking to check, test and poss change?


The P0410 code refers to the (secondary air system) emissions system. The AIR pump puts air to the exhaust to lower emissions. It takes in outside air and pumps it through two one-way check valves into each bank of the exhaust.
.
About 90% of the time that this code is set, the one-way check valves have worn out or failed and allow water (which occurs naturally in the exhaust) back into the pump. In any cold climate, especially in climates with higher humidity, this water may be more excessive. The water partially fills the AIR pump, it can then freeze. When the PCM commands the pump on, if the pump is frozen it cannot turn, thus overloading the circuit and "popping" the fuse.

A code P0410 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Water may have collected in the AIR pump or the vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump
  • Blown AIR pump fuse due to freezing up
Possible solution:
This may be covered under the emissions warranty on the vehicle. If your vehicle is out of bumper-to-bumper warranty, check if the emissions warranty is still valid!
  • Replace the AIR pump AND one-way check valve
  • Test and clean the AIR pump AND test and replace the one-way air check valve
  • Replace the AIR pump inlet hose
  • Replace the AIR pump fuse (found under the hood)
It is really only an emissions issue and won't harm your car's engine ot drivetrain. It will however mean you won't pass emission testing if you live somewhere that tests for that like I do!
