there is two sensors that those code refer too. The map sensor, and the iat sensor. and both would have an effect on gas mileage. Both sensors would just make the car run a rich mixture.

check or replace pcv valve. check the hose also. remove and clean the idle air control with carb cleaner ( IAC ). they are usually located on or around the throttle body. check all hoses for a vacuum leak. good-day!

Sometimes the IAC valve can cause a whistle sometimes resembling an airhorn. Does the truck have a rough idle? With it having an emission leak code i would assume that you probably have a hole in the rubber boot that goes to the PCV valve located in the passenger valve cover. There is a plastic tube that runs from the back side of intake behind the throttle body to the valve cover it will have a rubber elbow on each end of it. Look at the end behind the throttle body. It will probably resemble this.

P0508 code on 2001 Honda CR-V how do I troubleshoot


Hello,

P0508 = Idle Air Control System Circuit Low

Symptoms:
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) - Engine hard to start - Rough or erratic idle speed.

Causes:
Dirty throttle body - Electric throttle control actuator misadjusted or damaged - Faulty Electric throttle control actuator - Intake air leak - Poor electrical connection to the Intake Air Control (IAC) valve.

Solution:
If there are no intake leaks, clean throttle body, adjust engine idle and erase engine code. If the code comes back you may have to replaced the Electric Throttle Control Actuator (Motor) to repair the problem.


I hope this helps!

Mike

My 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan check engine light has been coming on and off recently. There are no other symptoms-it seems to be running fine. The computer code indicated an EGR 404 code. Where should I...


Yes clean it. Clean the holes in the intake also. A stiff wire in the intake will break anything loose. what you break loose will not hurt your engine. First just unplug the wire connector and plug it in. clear the codes. Some times it's just a bad connection.

Idle speed is low when put into gear, then jumps up and down; emissions light occassionally flashes. Seems to be a problem with engine timing or fuel intake ...


I would have throttle body and mass air flo cleaned and see how she runs after that.If these items get dirty they can mess with computer and make engine run erratic.if still running bad have tps sensore checked.(throttle position sensor)these are noteted for idle jumping around.

Low idle, stalls when put into gear, engine light on, code reader finds p0506 what is the most likely cause. the ICV recall was just done, this problem was happening before the recall work was done


When is the code detected? The idle speed is less than the target idle speed by 100 rpm or more.
Possible Causes - Dirty throttle body
- Electric throttle control actuator misadjusted or damaged
- Faulty Electric throttle control actuator
- Intake air leak
- Poor electrical connection to the Intake Air Control (IAC) valve
Possible Solution If there are no intake leaks, clean throttle body, adjust engine idle and erase engine code. If the code comes back you may have to replaced the Electric Throttle Control Actuator (Motor) to repair the problem.

you need the removal tools,or you can try stiff wire that fits the holes,bend 2 like a U,push one in the 2 holes on the left side,and one in the 2 holes on the right side,with 1 hand on each-push them outwards and wiggle the radio.---by outwards i mean there is catches inside and by pushing them out separates or spreads them

Check engine light keeps coming on with code 332 egr code.


The Egr ports are plugged in the intake. Remove the throttle body elbow behind the throttle body, and clean out the carbon. I can walk you through it if you need me too. This is common on the 4.6
