We had one of these and could not find anything wrong so the customer brought it to the dealer and the dealer said the head has to come off to do a carbon clean. Customer was not happy, car only had 35,000 on it. So we opted to do a chemical clean instead with our fuel injection clean machine. This solved the problem. You could get some additive to put in your fuel and hope for the best. Drive it for a tank or two with additives added. Then clear the code if still present and keep driving to see ifit comes back

    also inspect the air pump. They are known for popping the rivits on the rear cover. You can use bolts to put it back together if this happened.

Does any one have any thing to say about check engine code P-0411 for a dodge stratus 2004 please send me any thing regarding this code

P0411 is a code for your air injection sysem to operating properly it could be a bad air injection pump or a blown fuse for the pump also an air leak (vaccum leak) check to see if the air pump is working if it is then check your hosesfor leaks if none found have the code cleared and see how long it takes to come back.

Need to find the part # on my secondary air injector pump

Hi Jeff,
I just pressed the "I can solve this" button but maybe I can't :-) All I can do from here is ask if you got 0410 or 0411? If so, maybe you don't have a defective $600 pump or $300 solenoid, just a cracked or leaky $5 length of air hose linking those items. It's common :-)

Cheers, D
PS If this merits a Fixya! - great; otherwise I'd be happier without a rating...

VAG17832 P1424: Secondary Air Inj. Sys., Bank1 Leak Detected

Check all hoses from the secondary air pump to your air filter housing if they are locked and in place. If they are somewhat hooked up you will get false air flow data and cause a DTC to appear and probably a CEL will come on in the instrument cluster.
