1 Answer

Do a cylinder leak down test,for bad valves on #3
or head gasket,misfires for a reason

(Cam Worn ?)

Have to get rid of any misfires

If your taking out 20% your correcting for a rich condition,maybe

Some injector issues,old,need to be sent away for cleaning & flow
testing or replaced?

Drive it for 30 miles & add short & long term & see what you get

Exhaust Converter any good ?

SOURCE: How to replace distributer cap and rotor button on

Locate the distributer cap. Mark all your spark plug wires with some tape and number system so they go back in the same position (on the new cap). Remove the spark plug wires from the old cap (after marking them) and lay them to the side. Remove the 2 Torx or Phillips screws from the cap. Lift the cap up and off. The rotor will be directly under the cap. Lift it up and off. This may take a little rocking motion while pulling on it to get it off. Align the new rotor on the shaft and push it on firmly. Place the new cap on and install the 2 screws removed earlier. Install the plug wires on the cap in the order they come off. Ensure the wires are pushed in firmly.

SOURCE: My 2000 Acura TL 3.2 had no heat. It's flowing all cold air when i turned the temperature to 90 degree. Is it my thermosta had a problems? How to fix this?

Never seen one of these cars but if in doubt ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,in the heater hose feed to the heater could be a electric solonoid type switch that opens the valve inside the water pipe housing that the solonoid sits on and it could somehting wrong here like either the solonoid isnt operating or no power being sent to it from the climatic control computer or the plunger inside the housing is stuck ,use a mechanic recomended by a friend or relative to check the type of system ,The parts are or can be expensive and i have removed the automatic valve and fitted a tap with a manual cable from a bicycle gear change before now but i cannot recommend this as although it works other people who answer questions on here are altogether happy with some of my cowboy jobs ,but i used to be a fleet fitter with lots of own company vehicles not a dealer fitter and the owner was a refugee from a concentration camp in poland and he didnt like spending money ,an under statement to say the least

DTC P0172: Fuel Trim System Rich !
The engine control module (ECM) controls the air/fuel metering system in order to provide the best possible combination of driveability, fuel economy, and emission control. Fuel delivery is controlled differently during Open Loop and Closed Loop (CL). During Open Loop, the ECM determines fuel delivery based on sensor signals without heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) input. During CL, the ECM adds HO2S inputs and level of purge to calculate the short and long term fuel trim (FT) adjustments. If the HO2S indicates a lean condition, the fuel trim values will be above 0 percent. If the HO2S indicates a rich condition, the FT values will be below 0 percent. The short term FT values change rapidly in response to the HO2S voltage signals. The long term FT makes coarse adjustments in order to maintain an air/fuel ratio of 14.7:1. A block of cells contain information arranged in combinations of engine RPM and engine load for a full range of vehicle operating conditions. The long term FT diagnostic is based on an average of cells currently being used. The ECM selects the cells based on the engine speed and load. The FT diagnostic will conduct a test to determine if a rich failure actually exists or if excessive vapor from the evaporative emission (EVAP) canister is causing a rich condition.
If the ECM detects an excessively rich condition, DTC P0172 sets
Circuit/System Testing For DTC P0172
Allow the engine to reach operating temperature. With the engine running, observe the Long Term FT parameter with a scan tool. The value should be more than approximately -20 percent with the engine running at operating temperature.

If the value is not more than -20 percent, inspect for the following:

With the engine idling and the transmission in the Park or Neutral position, observe the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor parameter. The MAP sensor parameter should be between 19-42 kPa.

If the MAP sensor parameter is not between 19-42 kPa, refer to DTC P0106 .

With the engine idling, observe the mass air flow (MAF) sensor parameter. The MAF sensor parameter should be within 2-6 g/s at idle.

If the MAF sensor parameter is not within 2-6 g/s at idle, refer to DTC P0101 or P1101 or DTC P0102 or P0103 .

Vacuum hoses for splits, kinks, and improper connections

The air intake duct for being collapsed or restricted

The air filter for being dirty or restricted

Objects blocking the throttle body

Excessive fuel in the crankcase due to leaking fuel injectors

The check engine comes on but I dont lose power the code it is showing is sid 152.does anyone know what it is.

some codes dont cause power loss or may not even notice anything wrong but a check engine light a p0152 code means following answer courtesy of === P0152 O2 Sensor (High Voltage) OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Article by Dale Dale Toalston ASE Certified Technician 02 Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank 2 Sensor 1) What does that mean? The o2 (oxygen) sensors basically measure oxygen content in the exhaust. The PCM (powertrain control module) then uses this information to regulate fuel injector pulse. The o2 sensors are very important to proper operation of the engine. Problems with them can cause the PCM to add or take away too much fuel based on the faulty o2 sensor voltage. A P0152 code refers to the Bank 2, sensor 1, o2 sensor. (Bank 1 would contain cylinder 1 and bank 2 is the opposite bank. Bank 2 doesn't necessarily contain cylinder 2.) "Bank 2" refers to the side of the exhaust that DOES NOT contain cylinder number 1 and "Sensor 1" indicates that it is the pre-cat sensor, or forward(first) sensor on that bank. It is a four wire sensor. The PCM supplies a ground circuit and a reference voltage of about .5 volts on another circuit. Also for the o2 heater there is a battery voltage supply wire and another ground circuit for that. The o2 sensor heater allows the o2 sensor to warm up faster, thus achieving closed loop in less time than it would normally take for the exhaust to warm the sensor up to operating temperature. The O2 sensor varies the supplied reference voltage based on oxygen content in the exhaust. It is capable of varying from .1 to .9 volts, .1 indicating lean exhaust and .9 indicating rich exhaust. NOTE: A condensed explanation of fuel trims: If the o2 sensor indicates that the oxygen voltage reading is .9 volts or high, the PCM interprets this as a rich condition in the exhaust and as a result decreases the amount of fuel entering the engine by shortening injector "on time". The STFT (short term fuel trims) would reflect this change. The opposite would occur when the PCM sees a lean condition. The PCM would add fuel which would be indicated by a single digit positive STFT reading. On a normal engine the front o2 sensors switch rapidly back and forth two or three times per second and the STFT would shift positive and negative single digits to add and remove fuel to compensate at a similar rate. This little "dance" goes on to keep the air/fuel ratio at it's optimal level. Short term fuel trims or STFT reflect immediate changes in fuel injector "on-time" while long term fuel trims or LTFT reflect changes in fuel over a longer period of time. If your STFT or LTFT readings are in the positive double digits (ten or above), this indicates the fuel system has been adding an abnormal amount of fuel than is necessary to keep the proper air/fuel ratio. It may be overcompentsating for a vacuum leak or a stuck lean o2 sensor, etc. The opposite would be true if the fuel trim readings are in the negative double digits. It would indicate that the fuel system has been taking away excessive amounts of fuel, perhaps to compensate for leaking injectors or a stuck rich o2 sensor, etc. So when experiencing o2 related issues, reading your fuel trims can indicate what the PCM has been doing over the long term and short term with regard to fuel. This code indicates that the o2 sensor was stuck too high or in the rich position. The PCM monitors this voltage and if it determines that the voltage is too high out of range for too long, P0152 may set. Symptoms Symptoms may include: MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) illumination Engine may run very rough Engine may be running lean or rich depending on if the o2 sensor is reading correctly or incorrectly Lack of power Increased fuel consumption Causes Potential causes of an P0152 code include: Bad bank 2, 1 o2 sensor incorrectly reading rich condition Engine running rich and o2 sensor Correctly reading rich condition Signal shorted to voltage in harness Wiring harness damage/melted due to contact with exhaust components Vacuum leak (make have lean codes (P0171, P0174) present with it) Leaking injectors Bad fuel pressure regulator Bad PCM Possible Solutions If you have any lean or rich codes associated with this code, focus on fixing these first because these can cause the o2 sensor voltage readings to appear to be faulty when they are in fact only reading correctly. So, with the engine running at operating temperature, use a scan tool to observe the Bank 2,1 o2 sensor voltage reading. Is it high? If so, look at the long term and short term fuel trim readings. The fuel trims are affected by the o2 sensors as noted above. If the LTFT reading for that bank is indicating negative double digits (PCM trying to take away fuel to compensate for problem) try inducing a vacuum leak to see if the sensor voltage then goes lean and the fuel trims increase. If the o2 sensor responds, suspect a problem with the engine, not the sensor. There may be other engine codes to help you. If the o2 sensor reading remains high (0.9 volts or above) and won't respond then shut off engine. With KOEO (Key on engine off) disconnect the o2 sensor and look for signs of corrosion or water intrustion. Repair as necessary. The voltage reading should now be about 0.5 volts. If so, replace the o2 sensor, it's shorted internally. If after unplugging the o2 sensor the voltage reading on the scan tool doesn't change, then suspect wiring problems. Inspect the harness and look for any melted wires or anywhere that the o2 sensor harness is making contact with the exhaust components. If you are unsure, you can check for continuity of all four wires between the sensor and the PCM with an ohmmeter. Any resistance at all indicates a problem. Repair as necessary.

What is the fix for a code p0171 problem

Lean condition bank 1 refers to the computers interpretation of information delivered by the o2 sensor for bank 1. Possible causes are many. First look at the sensor readings. You should see a fluctuation of voltage readings. If the sensor is not fluctuating it should set another code with it. The readings should be .05 v to about .455 volts normally. If the readings are lean then look at the fuel trims. They will likely be nowhere near 0. When the engine is right, the trims may go positive 3 to negative 3. If your short term fuel trim is say +18 and the long term fuel trim is say +20 at idle then try runnung the engine at a steady 1600 rpm and wait a minute till the readings level out. If they approach 0 then look for a vacuum leak. Let the engine idle and use choke cleaner spray to find the leak. Spray suspect areas and watch for changes in fuel trims.

I have a scion tc 05 with this code p171 . what does it mean?

DTC P0171 is set when fuel trim is driven rich beyond a certain value. Possible causes are:
1. Exhaust system leak.
2. Improper fuel pressure.
3. Fuel injector restricted.
4. Defective heated oxygen sensor No. 1.
5. Defective Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor.
6. Defective Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
When the air fuel ratio feedback is stable after the engine is at operating temperature and the fuel trim has reached its limit of correction to the rich side. (2 trip logic).
Feedback from the HO 2 sensor influences short-term fuel trim and short-term fuel trim influences long trim fuel trim. Short-term values are temporary and not stored when the ignition key is turned off. Long-term values are stored in memory because they are part of the basic injection duration. Long term values affect injection duration in closed and open loop because they are used to calculate basic injection duration. It is important to remember that the actual fuel trim will be the opposite of the DTC. A system too lean, DTC P0171 will mean the ECM is making a + or rich correction.
read (and let me know)above data and Freeze Frame by using (example, generic) Scan Tool on # mode 2, etc.
Slowly accelerate the engine in the increments shown and record voltage,
grams/sec of MAF and SFT, LFT, Injection Pulse, Fuel Pressure, etc.
