Error code 26 on a 2009 raider. I recently cleaned my air filters on my raider. after I put it back together the check engine light came on and error code 26 displayed.

I ran the diagnosis and no 26 appears. I there a chance I unhooked the vacuum hose? How do I reset the code?

SOURCE: Check engine light/code 440?

you should look on the right side of the engine(closest to the firewall) for any loose or disconnected vaccum lines on your intake,throttle body or you evap system. I do have a question? does the vehicle idle rough or does it hesitate on acceleration?

SOURCE: Check engine light has come back for the second time after having change the air filter and resetting. Now receiving a code: P0101 What do I do now?

Probably carbon build up on a sensor. Had this happen on a Ford Expedition. I put it on the highway and hammered it several times. It blew the carbon off the sensor. Light went away.

SOURCE: I have a P0106 error code on my 97 Subaru Legacy

Using a scan tool, watch the MAP sensor value with the key on, engine off. Compare the BARO reading with the MAP reading. They should be roughly equal. The voltage for the MAP sensor should read approx. 4.5 volts. Now start the engine and look for a significant drop in the MAP sensor voltage indicating the MAP sensor is working.

If the MAP reading doesn't change perform the following:

With the Key on, engine off, disconnect the vacuum hose from the MAP sensor. Using a vacuum pump, pull 20 in. of vacuum on the MAP sensor. Does the voltage drop? It should. If it doesn't inspect the MAP sensor vacuum port and vacuum hose to manifold for a restriction of some kind. Repair or replace as necessary.
If there are no restrictions, and the value doesn't change with vacuum, then perform the following: with the Key on and engine off and the MAP sensor unplugged, check for 5 Volts at the reference wire to the MAP sensor connector with a Digital Voltmeter. If there is none, check for reference voltage at the PCM connector. If the reference voltage is present at the PCM connector but not the MAP connector, check for open or short in the reference wire between MAP and PCM and retest.
If reference voltage is present, then check for existing ground at the MAP sensor connector. If it isn't present then repair open/short in the ground circuit.
If ground is present, then replace MAP sensor.

Error code p0300 indicates rough idle and p0305 indicates engine misfire in cylinder 5. Check for faulty spark plug and its wiring. Also check for ignition coil and distributor. Replacing spark plug and its wiring may resolve the issue.

Error code 0172 on dodge caravan

Sure, have your system pressure checked. Worst case scenario, thermostat could be installed upside down or a bad head gasket. Also check for water in the oil or oil in the water. If you don't know how to do this ask at your local parts store.

I have a 2004 Suzuki Verona with check engine light on showing codes 0171, 0174, and 1670. could someone have a solution

Hello! The first two codes are indicating the engine is running to lean...A vacuum leak or a dirty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor can cause these codes...The third code is a communication error between ECM (Computer) and ABS (automatic Braking System)...Lets put that one on the back burner...Perform the following and send a comment with results...

Check for loose or broken vacuum lines...Follow diagram under hood...

The MAF is located between the air filter and the throttle body...It can be cleaned, If contaminated with debris or if you are using an after market air filter, with oil....Remove MAF (see photo below) and spray with electronic parts cleaner (sold at auto stores and Radio Shack)...Then replace...Clear codes by disconnecting battery for 5 minutes...Make sure you have your radio code before disconnecting battery...

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.

I have a 1988 Toyota MR2 w/4A-GE engine that won't pass emissions due to high NOx and HC. I have recently changed the plugs and wires,oil and filter, gas cap,air filter is clean. How do I get the NOx from...

Two things... check your oxygen sensor - or just replace it. Have you ever had the check engine light come on while the cruise is on at highway speed? jumper the error check terminals and see if you have any check engine codes showing. Also, see if someone removed the catalytic converter - or get a new one.

I have a 2002 ford taurus. check engine light is on. Auto Zone did a scan today and the error code was p1507 can you please tell me what i need to do to fix this problem.

possible problems

Vaccuum leak
failed IAC valve
open or short
air inlet plugged

P1507 means "Idle Air Control Underspeed Error". It can be most commonly caused by a vacuum leak, a damaged Idle Air Control (IAC) assembly or a stuck IAC valve that needs cleaning. Essentially, your engine isn't idling at high enough according to your computer's programming parameters. Many times this shows up in colder weather as you try and start your vehicle. It will usually die unless you put your foot on the gas pedal and raise the RPM's. I have also read where a clogged air filter might be the problem. I would try cleaning your IAC valve first.

Yellow maintenence required light just came on how do I get it off?

Check Engine Lights should not be ignored. It may mean over due for an oil change and the oil change place can reset it after service, or,
Take it to an Auto-Zone (only place I know does it) parts store. They will for free put a tester on (after 1995 cars that have a test port) to tell you what error code the car gives. From there you can buy a car repair manual from them to look up the code and what to do to fix it,
or google the car error code. They are not allowed to reset the code.
After the error is fixed the light should go out.

A lot of times I've seen it is a lean air to fuel message and the Mass Air Flow sensor in the air intake pipe between the air filter and carburetor needs cleaning. Do not touch the sensor with your finger or use other cleaners, this should be removed and then cleaned with a spray (I used the whole can) just for this purpose. read up on it first. That is only if that code applies.

clean and recharge your cold air filter, if you never had it cleaned, you can buy the recharge kit for your cold air filter, follow the instructions, if that doesn't work check your mass air flow sensor, have your mechanic clean it and test it.
