Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

1 Answer

Hello I have two codes that came up at the same time. PO102 & PO443 I don't know if they are connected or not. The truck takes a while to start, sometimes but not all the time, and the tranny shifts hard know. I know I have no air leaks so I don't know what else to do. Its a Silverado 2500 HD with a 6.0 2 wheel drive.

PO102- mass air flow sensor.
PO443- Purge solenoid.
Check & clean connections, erase codes & retry, if comes back replace them.

    Then it's time to do a little close looking at connections to MAF sensor. A lot of times when this happens, it ends up being a bad connection somewhere, either at MAF or at ECM. Unfortunately part of the testing requires scan tool. It may have to go to dealer for this, unless you've got a local guy who knows what he's doing with a scan tool & you trust him. If you do decide to remove connectors & spray them with contact/electrical cleaner & inspect close while doing it, be sure to disconnect battery, & apply dielectric grease to connections before re-installing. Good Luck, Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I think that will be your fastest & probably cheapest way to isolate & remedy the problem.

    One other thing that appears to be a culprit for those codes and part replacement didn't cure it, is plugged exhaust. A plugged converter has been found to cause it more than once. Just something to keep in mind.

Code po102

The generic code is for the mass air flow sensor. But I don't show this code on a GM product.
You may need a shop manual or research it online for details.

Code po443

EVAP Purge Control Valve Circuit

I don't have a break down on all the evap codes

There are others that say the same thing & I do not
want to tell you to change any part,no one should

You always use the codes to guide you to a system
area & then do some testing

You will need a repair shop
Don't throw parts at it

You can learn a lot on YOU TUBE about what an evap
system is & how they work

Also several parts manufactures web sites have educational
You can watch that stuff all day long for years & never see it all
No reason not to educate your self when you have an internet connection
