2002 Jetta 2.0L Leak detection pump

I have an 02 Jetta the check engine light is on. I am told that I need to replace the Leak detection pump, the combination valve and the secondary air outlet hose. I dont mind doing the work myself however the Haynes manual that I have is sadly deficient. How do I replace these parts? Do I need special tools? Is the leak detection pump on the EVAP in the rear wheel well? Do I really need to replace these parts? How do I clear this code so that I can get a sticker?

The diagnostic code that relates to those causes are all from the emissions system and won't necessarily effect your vehicle performance, reliability, or it may still well be able to pass an emissions test.
The most likely of causes would be any rubber fittings, plastic or rubber hoses that have come loose or cracked over time. It is an easy and inexpensive replacement for any of those issues. The diagram for the vacuum hose routing can be found on a sticker placed under the hood, which includes all emissions components in the diagram.
If you cannot find any damage to the vacuum lines or fittings then I suggest having it inspected at a service center.
Keep in mind that both mileage and time limits for manufacturer warranty of emissions components extend beyond the other warranties and you still may be covered.

SOURCE: p0171 lean code will not go away. changed fuel

Double check the very small hose that comes off of the manifold, since it sits so close to the manifold, I would not be surprised to find it frail and broken.

If you have tried everything else, have you had the code cleared after you changed out the parts? try having it cleared again....

The secondary Air Injection system, this is basically an inspect and replace broken hose detail. Leave the inlet hose disconnected and start the engine. Listen and feel for exhaust hissing at the check valves.The check valve(s) will make like a gurgling sound as air is drawn in However , if exhaust is felt or heard replace the valve. Hope this works out for ya.

SOURCE: 2002 VW Jetta 1.8T has a leak somewhere.Need diagram

Bring the car into a repair shop and have them pressure test it for leaks or you can purchase a pressure tester make sure you get the appropriate adapter for your cars radiator filler neck or resovoir, and check for leaks yourself. Make sure the car is cold and there is the appropriate mixtiure of coolant and water in the system, prior to pressure testing. Also do a visual inspection of the cooling system when the vehicle is cold and look for leaks.

SOURCE: my check engine lite is

P0411 = Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow.

Have some one check for a burnt out rubber blach rubber tubeing going to the valve from the motor. In 90% of the cars that cheap peice of hose was what caused the problem. Also check IAC and IAC circuit; check Secondary Air Injection pump, valve, circuit and hoses for leaks, blockages.

Hope helps; keep us updated.

3.3l engine. What are the probable causes of DTC P1495?

answer courtesy of engine codes .com Engine-Codes OBDII Code List P1495 Dodge
P1495 Dodge P1495 Dodge - EVAP Leak Detection Pump Solenoid Circuit Condition 3 ' Add Comment Possible causes
- Faulty Leak Detection Pump (LDP)
- Leak Detection Pump (LDP) harness is open or shorted
- Leak Detection Pump (LDP) poor electrical connection
What does this mean? When is the code detected?
Malfunction is detected when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detected the pump solenoid did not change status when activated,
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible a noticeable fuel odor caused by the release of fuel vapors
P1495 Dodge Description
The Evaporative emissions system is design to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, ca allow vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage.
During the self-diagnostics, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) first checks the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for electrical and mechanical faults. If the first checks pass, the PCM then uses the LDP to seal the vent valve and pump air into the system to pressurize it. If a leak is present, the PCM will continue pumping the LDP to replace the air that leaks out. The PCM determines the size of the leak based on how fast/long it must pump the LDP as it tries to maintain pressure in the system.

Be patient, it the light went on because of the gas cap it will take a bunch of starts and warm ups before the computer sill decide the problem has been corrected and turn of the light itself.

Keep getting 02 codes on cavalier

WOW!!! have you run your gas tank low enough to have the tattel light to come on. "Low fuel light" if this happens on a regular basis you will pick up debris from the lower filter and it can code your system. Sure way to tell is if you are hearing your pump when you weren't before. Easy fix by dropping tank and changing filter. Check fuel lines at tank for air leaks, any amount of fuel leakage will also comparmize a pressurized system.

Check engine light

you were told your vehicle has small/large evap leak detected? The leak could be coming from any number of components. Fuel tank seal, evap purge valve, check valve. The best way is to find the leak with a smoke machine. It is designed to find leaks in the evap system. There is a port with a green cap in the engine compartment. This is where the hose from the machine attaches to. Turn machine on. Where ever you see smoke, this is where the leak is.

I have a 2003 VW jetta tdi

You've lost engine coolant somewhere, and need to fill the engine back up with the VW special G12 coolant.

Then find the leak, which will be in one or more of the following places -
Water hoses to heater core, including any other coolant carrying hoses in the engine compartment
Radiator hoses
Plastic manifold bolted to side of engine which is known to leak (have replaced on an '01 VW Beetle, and an '02 Jetta, both members of our family in the past few years.).
Overflow reservoir cracked
Radiator leak.

Reply back what you find. If the engine got too hot, you may need to have the thermostat replaced.
