Look at the PURGE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE. It's stuck or the top of it broke off. Its right by the vent control valve that you just tested. It has 2 wire connector and 2 vacuum hoses coming out of it. The 2 hoses are going into this white 4 way valve, that has 4 vacuum hoses going into it. Those 2 parts are next to each other and usualy you have a code for one, but the problem is the other. So to sumerize this, check the valve that has 2 hoses goin to it and 2 wire connector (green color connector I believe) Let me know what you have found.

Just got the car back from AAmco with the trouble codes P0122, P1610, P1626, P1107 and P1122. Any thoughts?

That depends upon what AAmco did. These codes are all over the place and seemingly unrelated. It is possible if they did major work that some of these items may have been disconnected and reconnected for the repair. They should have tested and cleared all codes before returning the vehicle. Some of the codes set, if still present as errors, should render the car inoperable. I would clear the ECM of codes and see what comes back after a period of normal driving use over a few days. Then I would worry about what codes are present, if any.

Have a 1998 cadillac eldorado, diagnostic codes are PO404 and PO307, what does that mean?

Code 404 is for a problem with the EGR valve and code 307 is for a miss on cylinder 7.
The egr valve would need to be tested, and the spark plug and injector checked out on cylinder 7.

  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)

  • P1492EVAP Canister Purge Control/Solenoid Valve (Circuit)
  • Replacing the purge solenoid will clear code P1492 This should also clear code P0300 as well.

P1335 no start cranks like its out of time when it starts run ok

The code is for a problem in the circuit for the crank position sensor.
The sensor and circuit would need to be tested with a meter.

How to fix problem for code # po 441 for 1996 nissan maxima

Hi there:
This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer functioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

I suggest replacing the gas cap with preferably one from the Nissan dealer, or OEM equivalent, then clear these codes by disconnecting the negative battery cable for about a minute then drive it normally; if the codes come back, this may take a couple of days, you most likely have to have the system tested for leaks.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1998 nissan maxima service engine light is on

Its most likely the vent control valve, which is bolted to the canister behind the rear wheel on drivers side. However, the control valve is held on to the canister with 2 bolts, which will most likely brake or at least on of them. In that case you will need the canister also. You can test the control valve by un-plugin it ads supplying 12 V to it. It should click. Is click is heard, that is a good sound. If no clicking is heard, than the valve is stuck and will need to be replaced. Don't forget about the screws that hold it in. You may need the canister if they brake. Let me know what you find.

Engine light is on 1998 maxima gle

Replace the oxygen sensors. The check engine light on a 98 maxima lets you know that there is a problem with the emission system.
