Question about 2006 Kia Carnival 2.9
My 2006 kia carnival 2.7ltr has a pending code P2187. it comes on intermittantly with engine light. vehicle is running well unles engine light comes on. Then it wont start on the first try unless trying several times. Can anyone know anything about this code and cause? please need help.
According to the data book code p2187 is "System too lean at idle, bank 1" and the probable cause is "fuel pressure, injectors, intake leak". hope that helps

code p2189 and p2187 = air/fuel mixture too lean on both cylinder banks which in turn generates excessive emissions = failed inspection.
What can cause a lean mixture:
- Incorrect main charge signal
- Intake air system leaking
- Fuel pressure too low
- Volume supply of fuel pump too low
- Mechanical fault in injectors
- PCV valve leaks
- Leaks in exhaust system
- EVAP canister purge valve mechanically faulty (hangs open)
All these must be checked.

Testimonial: "thank you for your answers well beyond my spec but now i'll know what the mechanic is talking about sounds like no easy fix"
SOURCE: what does code p2187 mean
thats not a code p stands for powertrain the next digit will be either a 0 generic obd2 code or 1 Manurfacturer spec. check your code make sure that it is right

P2187 = "system too lean at idle, bank 1"
The problem is in the bank of cylinders that includes cylinder 1. Running too lean at idle can often be caused by an air leak between the mass air flow sensor and the throttle body, a leaky intake manifold gasket, or some other vacuum leak. "False air" is downstream of the MAF sensor so it is not measured. The computer only attempts to add the correct amount of fuel to air that it knows about. It will attempt to compensate for lean mixtures but at a certain point, it will turn on the check engine light.
The miss that you had on cylinder one was caused by two things; the false air leaning out the mixture and a worn plug. You replaced the plug and now that new spark plug is able to fire the lean mixture. But the false air remains to be corrected. Eventually, you'll have misfiring again.

SOURCE: 2006 Optima - engine code
Take the car to a place like Autozone, Kragen, O'reilly auto parts etc. They will hook up their hand held analyzer to your car, read the code, and then give you a print out of what it is. All for free, probably a oxygen sensor or some type of sensor. take care.

Mr friend had this same issue on an 06, since new. After many times in the shop, they replaced the entire ECM. Problem Solved. It was defective from new.
