Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

1 Answer

Engine light problem

I was told I had to replace an item on my engine and the air cleaner hose connected to it on the engine. I was told that it was cracked and that was the cause of the engine light coming on. I don't know what it is called but like I said it connects to the air cleaner hose on top of the engine. I have a 2001 dodge Ram1500 4X4 with a 5.9 ltr engine in it.

Sounds to me to be an oxygen or O2 sensor. One of the most common problems for emissions failure. Look that one up and good luck!

Translation for B 125 maintenance code


This fooled me for a little while, as I'm not familiar with the car. Actually what you are seeing is a maintainence message that tells you first, that you need to perform a maintainence type A or B.
Then it tells you what maintainence sub items you also need to perform.

So, what you are being told is perform maintainence B and perform sub items 1, 2 and 5

MAINTAINENCE A CHECKLIST:
Replace engine oil

MAINTAINENCE B CHECKLIST:
Replace engine oil and filter
Inspect front & rear brakes
Inspect parking brake & adjustment
Inspect Tie rod ends, steering box & boots
Inspect suspension components
Inspect Driveshaft boots

I was told that my air flow sensor needed to be changed in my 2000 grand prix super charger. can you tell me where it is located on the engine and what it looks like?


I assume that someone looked at the "Check Engine" codes and saw this sensor error. If that is true, you will find the sensor inside that air intake that connects the air filter housing to the engine throttle housing. If the code is not why you are replacing it, first be completely sure you don't have any vacuum leaks. The intake tube will be a large rubber tube that has maybe a couple electrical connections and maybe a smaller hose. At any rate there is at least one connection to the air flow sensor. Disconnect the electrical connections and take that hose loose from the air filter housing. Take the filter housing off. Then you should be able to take the air intake tube off the throttle housing. It will have a fairly normal hose clamp. When you put this back together, be sure all the connections are tight and that there is nothing that might be an air leak. A leak in the intake allows air into the engine that has not gone through the sensor causes some serious performance problem by the fuel/air mixture being too lean. Should you see a suspicious connection of a vacuum hose anywhere, fix that first. You don't say what the problem is but a vacuum leak could look like an air sensor problem, unless the engine code specifically points to the sensor. Now that you have the intake tube off the engine you can look in and see the sensor in the tube. It is usually mounted by some small screws to the intake tube. It should be easy for you to take out of the intake tube. While you have the intake tube off, it's a good idea to clean the throttle plate and throat. Buy some spray cleaner that says it if good for throttle and does not harm oxygen sensors. Follow the can directions. Clean the throttle plate, then open the throttle full and spray all the inside if the throat that you can see. Put it all back together. The engine my be a little hard to start because of the cleaner you sprayed into the throttle throat. If there was an engine code you need to clear that so the light goes out and the old code doesn't remain in the system. To clear the code, disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes.
Good luck. I hope this is helpful.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    How to change the fuel filter


    Fuel Filter The filter should be inspected for external damage and/or leakage at least once a year. The fuel filter should be changed only as necessary. Toyota Motor Corporation recommends replacing the carbureted fuel filters at 15,000 miles and 30,000 miles on fuel injected models. NOTE: Fuel lines and connections, fuel tank vapor vent system hoses and fuel tank bands should be inspected every 60,000 miles or every 36 months. The fuel tank cap gasket should be replaced 60,000 miles or every 72 months.
    ---
    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Carbureted Engines The fuel filter on carbureted engines is a plastic cylinder with two ports for the fuel. It is usually located in the engine compartment near the charcoal canister.
    1. Using a pair of pliers, expand the hose clamp on one side of the filter, and slide the clamp further down the hose, past the point to which the filter pipe extends. Remove the other clamp in the same manner. Grasp the clamps and slide them up the hose slightly above the filter ends 88271p10.jpg

    2. Grasp the hoses near the ends and twist them gently to pull them free from the filter pipe. Slide the hose off the end of the fuel filter end 88271p11.jpg

    3. Pull the filter from the clip and discard. Be carefull when removing the filter, some fuel may spill out if not held upright 88271p12.jpg
      To install:
    4. Install the new filter into the clip. The arrow must point towards the hose that runs to the carburetor.
    5. Push the hoses onto the filter pipes, then slide the clamps back into position.
    6. Start the engine and check for leaks.
    Fuel Injected Engines 1993-97 MODELS
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position. Disconnect the negative battery cable and wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding with working on the fuel system. This will depressureize the fuel system. The fuel filter can be hard to locate on these engines 88271pa1.jpg
      Fig. 4: Exploded view of the fuel filter mounting - 1993-97 models 88271g02.gif
      Fig. 5: Disconnect the negative battery cable prior to all fuel system repairs 88271g03.gif
      CAUTION
      Failure to depressurise the fuel system could cause personal injury.
    2. Disconnect the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor wiring.
    3. Loosen the air cleaner hose clamp bolt, the disconnect the four air cleaner cap clips. Fig. 6: Loosen the air cleaner hose clamp bolt 88271g04.gif

    4. Spearate the air cleaner hose from the throttle body, and remove the air cleaner cap together with the air cleaner hose.
    5. Disconnect the EVAP canister hose from the charcoal canister. Fig. 7: Remove both EVAP hoses from the charcoal canister 88271g05.gif

    6. Remove the charcoal canister from the bracket.
    7. Place a suitable container or shop towel under the fuel filter. Remove the union bolt and two gaskets, then slowly disconnect the fuel inlet hose from the fuel filter outlet. Fig. 8: Remove the union bolt and two gaskets from the fuel filter, then disconnect the inlet hose from the filter 88271g06.gif

    8. Using a special wrench 09631-22020 or equivalent, disconnect the inlet pipe from the fuel filter. Remove the two bolts and the filter from the vehicle. Fig. 9: Using a special tool, disconnect the inlet pipe from the fuel filter 88271g07.gif
      Fig. 10: Remove the two filter mounting bolts, then separate the filter from the vehicle 88271g08.gif
      To install:
    9. Install the fuel filter with the two bolts and tighten them to 43 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
    10. Using the special wrench 09631-22020 or equivalent, connect the inlet pipe to the fuel filter. Tighten to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Using a torque wrench, tighten with a fulcrum length of 11.81 inch (30cm). Install the fuel inlet hose to the filter outlet using new gaskets and union bolt. Tighten to 22 ft. lbs. 30 Nm). Fig. 11: Install the filter inlet hose to the filter outlet, then tighten to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm) 88271g09.gif

    11. Install the charcoal canister to the bracket. Connect the two EVAP hoses to the canister.
    12. Connect the air cleaner hose to the throttle body. Install the air cleaner cap together with the air cleaner hose.
    13. Attach the IAT sensor wiring.

    OBDii code reads 0170 which is a fuel trim malfunction right bank 1998 mercedes c230 where would the MAFsencor be and how do I fix


    The MAF Sensor (Mass Air Flow) is located in the air induction system between the air filter and the throttle body.

    Be certain to inspect very well for any air or vacuum leaks in the air induction system or for any loose hose clamps or fasteners in the air induction system, especially between the MAF Sensor and the throttle body. There can be no un-metered air entering the engine or the engine performance will be effected and the check engine light, or MIL (Malfunction Indicator Light) will come on, and P0170 is only one DTC (Data Trouble Code) that un-metered air can cause.

    Also, be certain to check for any obstuctions on the air velocity grid to the MAF Sensor, or in the air flow to the MAF Sensor such as a plugged up air filter, or something sucked up into the air intake for the air cleaner assembly.

    The MAF Sensor can be removed from the MAF housing and cleaned using carburetor cleaner in a spray can to clean off the fine dust that often builds up on the air velocity sensor part of the MAF Sensor and causes poor performance from the MAF Sensor. (it will require a tamper resistant torx bit, and note the position that the MAF Sensor is positioned in the MAF housing so that it is installed back into the MAF housing properly)

    Then clean off the MAF Sensor with the carburetor spray. (From a spray can only, and do not submerge the MAF sensor in any type of water, cleaner, or solvent, or the MAF Sensor will be damaged)

    If cleaning the MAF Sensor does not solve the problem, then replace the MAF Sensor and be sure to install it with the air velocity grid facing the air filter, and be sure to tighten all the hose clamps or fasteners well.

    Here are a few links to MAF Sensors for that vehicle, and an image to help assist you.

    1993 toyota camry change thermostat


    You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing which is bolted to the engine. Remove the bolts (not the hose) and lift the housing to expose the thermostat (may require a little prying with a screwdriver or similar tool). Note how the old thermostat is fitted (which end is up), lift it out of the engine, and then remove all traces of gasket from the housing and the engine. Install the new thermostat and gasket, replace the bolts, add coolant as necessary, and you're done.

    P102 Service Engine light warning came up.


    MAP and O2 sensor are two separate items. MAP, reads manifold pressure, O2 reads exhaust content. O2 sensor often is a false reading not to be ignored but should not be immediately changed till other items are corrected. MAP sensor is often mounted on the firewall and can be identified as having an electrical connector and a vacuum hose attached to it. (ask a parts house to show you one and it will make finding it easier) Check for vacuum leaks in the hose and make sure the hose is well connected at both ends before changing the sensor. You may also want to clean the Mass Air Flow sensor located between the air duct hoses running from the air filter box to the throttle body. There are two small wires inside it that can be cleaned carefully with carb cleaner and a Q tip.If dirty, it can cause idle fluctuations or stalling.
