Question about 1995 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Found 1 big leak

The bypass hose running from the pcv valve to the intake had a huge hole. I rigged a hose and reset the computer but i still get the 02 sensor code problem. It doesn't seem like the engine is running very good now after I disconnect the battery now like it did the first couple of times. I tried looking at the wires best I could on 02 sensor on manifold that person I bought car from said he changed. I sprayed carb cleaner around the intake manifold but didnt hear any changes in motor. Is there any way to have the PCM checked?

What do p0171 code mean


Fuel system - Bank 1 lean.

This is usually due to a dirty MAF sensor heated wires. Remove MAF Sensor and spray the tiny heated wires with carb cleaner or MAF sesnor cleaner. ALso, look for air leaks in the air intake system that is allowing unmtered air to bypass the MAF sensor.
Your oxygen sensor is eprting that not enough fuel is going through the injectors. Look for splits in the convolutes of the big air intake hose. Also, the PCV valve could be bad
My guses is there is an air leak.

WHAT IS CODE 173 FUEL TRIM MALFUNCTION BANK-2? CODE 170 FUEL TRIM MALFUNCTION BANK-1? WHAI CODE 432 MAIN CATALYST BELOW THRESHOLD BANK-2? CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON 1998 MERCEDE BENZ E320


Generally when you get a code for both banks, you do not have an engine failure, but you probably have a significant vacuum leak. First check the rubber hoses around the PCV valve to motor intake and if any rubber is squishy or oily that would indicate a leaking hole. Also check around the entire intake with carb cleaner (engine revs while running if you spray the cleaner near a leaking gasket or intak hose hole).

I have a 1996 plymouth grand voyager. new spark plug, new starter. when i start it it will crank but will not turn over. if it does the engine runs poorly and it backfires, when i put a little gas, engine...


Backfiring can occur in engines that are running lean because the air-fuel mixture has insufficient fuel (too much air in the ratio) OR whenever the timing is too advanced. On modern vehicles unless the timing chain or timing belt has slipped (not likely) you simply have an air leak that is permitting too much air to enter the motor, causing hard starts and poor driveability, especially at idle. Check for a hole or loose fitting connections in the air duct from the air filter to the throttle body. Make additional checks for holes in the rubber hoses between the PCV valve and the motor (PCV valve hoses run to the intake of the motor). Even small holes or gaps can cause significant issues. if you can't find the leaks with visual inspection and feeling or removal of the parts and replacement, try spraying carburetor around the intake and hoses. If motor revs it means there is a "leak" there letting air into the motor, (bypassing the mass air flow sensor that regulates air volume).

Check engine light on (Code P-2096)


P2096 is bank 1 lean code. This can be caused typically by a hole in a vacuum hose coming from the motor. Typically a hole will be found from heat and oil damage in a 90 degree bend of a hose running from the air intake to the PCV valve. You may have to remove that whole section (multiple bends usually) and do a very close visual inspection or feel around for a soft spongy area on the hoses. If it feels soft, there is very likely a hole at that point and it feels soft because the rubber thickness is thinner from melting. Other vacuum leak places to check includes the large rubber hose from the brake booster to the intake. If this is not the issue you could have a faulty fuel injector and typically using injector cleaner will not fix that problem.

More than likely, you've got a leaking or deteriorated PCV tube connection (hole in a vacuum hose) which will cause the engine to run a little rought at idle. Look for a small hole in any rubber hoses between the PCV valve on the crankcase and the engine's intake near the firewall at the back of the motor. This should resolve the PO174 (fuel trims) code and PO300 (misfires). Also the PO1153 has to do with exhaust sensors and since you've changed the sensors you probably have an exhaust leak before the sensor, probably a bad exhaust header gasket.

Vacuum leak


mine is doing the same, it's your pcv receptor on the manifold. that hard plastic cover is actually part of the intake itself, if it "came off" it would cut your intake in half. that seem seals the two halfs together. you gotta pull the whole intake off and replace it... or jimmy rig it.
