Pull off the EGR valve and cea the carbon off of it next put a hose on the vac port on the egr and **** on the tube does the egr pintal valve open up? if yes then te egr valve is working, once the egr valve is open put the tip of your toung on the hose and see if it stays open if it does not then the EGR valve is defective. Aslo the fuel trim is affected by EGR vavle hope this helps and thanks for using fixya

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 OBD-CODES.com === 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.

You could have leaking fuel injectors an fouled spark plugs causing the misfire ! I would pull the spark plugs out an see if wet with fuel . Could also have a leaking fuel pressure regulator ! How To Fix P0300 random misfire codes in your car

O2 Sensor Signal Fixed Rich http://youtu.be/H6lY42u19VM
The front oxygen sensor sends signals on exhaust gas oxygen content to the PCM to control a 14.7:1 air/fuel ratio under normal driving conditions. The PCM can make fuel corrections from a nominal 128 (0% correction) short/long term fuel trim value to a maximum window of 101-147 (-21 to +15 percent). If the PCM determines a rich condition exists, 02 voltage above 450 mV, it will decrease injector pulse width, reducing fuel, to maintain a 14.7:1 air/fuel ratio. The short term fuel trim value will be between 101-128 indicating a rich condition. If the PCM determines a lean condition exists, 02 voltage below 450 mV, it will increase injector pulse width, adding fuel, maintaining a correct air/fuel mixture. The short term fuel trim value will be between 128-147 indicating a lean condition. When certain conditions have been met to begin learning fuel control (ECT, closed loop, etc.) the PCM will use the short term fuel trim cell to update 1 of the 4 long term cells (idle, decel, cruise, accel) being used. During every drive cycle, or trip, the PCM will use and update the idle and cruise long term cells and will keep track of how long the control system is operating in these cells. After approximately 2 minutes of being in each of these cells, the fuel control system will enable EVAP purge and the purge long term cells will be used. Refer to EVAP Canister Purge for information on purge long term fuel cells. If the average of the idle and cruise fuel cells is 147 and the short term fuel trim cell is currently over 128, a lean fuel system DTC will set. This test is performed before the purge cells are used.

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.

Code P2187 on 2008 Suzuki Forenza


DTC P2187: Fuel Trim System Lean at Idle

Fuel Trim Description
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 and Closed Loop. During Open Loop, the ECM determines fuel delivery based on sensor signals without Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) input. During Closed Loop, the HO2S inputs are added and used by the ECM to calculate short and long term fuel trim fuel delivery adjustments. If the HO2S indicate a lean condition, fuel trim values will be above 0%. If the Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) indicate a rich condition, fuel trim values will be below 0%. Short term fuel trim values change rapidly in response to the HO2S signals. Long term fuel trim makes coarse adjustments in order to maintain an air/fuel ratio of 14.7 : 1.

This code can only set when the engine control is in Closed Loop. The engine must be fully warmed up.

This must be diagnosed using a scan tool that can read engine data in order to determine the actual cause of the problem. It can be caused by the following things:

> Vacuum leaks
> Malfunctioning, dirty, or skewed Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF)
> Malfunctioning or skewed Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor (MAP)
> Dirty or sticking injectors
> Malfunctioning or improperly programmed Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

I Have a 1171 code on a 1999 xc70 volvo and the engine runs real bad no power thanks


The control module receives information from the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) about the fuel/air mixture when idling at both the lower and upper part-load range - If the fuel/air mixture deviates from [lambda]=1 the short-term fuel trim will compensate for this by adjusting injection time so that [lambda]=1 is achieved. When the short-term fuel trim makes an adjustment, the integrator median must be adjusted by the long-term trim. Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) ECM-261A will be stored when the long-term trim must be adjusted to maximum in the lower part of the load area.

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.

Function of oxygen sensor?


It measures the oxygen in the exhaust system, for instance, if the fuel is to rich it sends values to the computer and the computer will adjust the fuel and timing to bring it back into perimeters

What is a STFT B1(%) -1.56. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?


Here is some general information to get you started...
(I am quoting directly from several PDF sources, Googled).

STFT B1 = Short Term Fuel Trim Bank 1. This is the fuel correction percentage being used by the closed loop fuel strategy for Bank 1 (if a V style engine or for all cylinders if an inline engine). If the fuel system is in open loop, this number will be reported as 0%

Fuel trim refers to the feedback compensation value compared against the basic injection time. Fuel trim includes short–term fuel trim and long–term fuel trim.

Short–term fuel trim is the short–term fuel compensation used to maintain the air–fuel ratio at its ideal theoretical value. The signal from the heated oxygen sensor indicates whether the air–fuel ratio is RICH or LEAN compared to the ideal theoretical value, triggering a reduction in fuel volume if the air–fuel ratio is rich, and an increase in fuel volume if it is lean.

Long–term fuel trim is overall fuel compensation carried out long–term to compensate for continual deviation of the short–term fuel trim form the central value due to individual engine differences, wear over time and changes in the usage environment.

If both the short–term fuel trim and long–term fuel trim are LEAN or RICH beyond a certain value, it is detected as a malfunction and the check engine warning (CHK ENG) lights up.

If the total of the short–term fuel trim value and long–term fuel trim value is within ± 25 %, the system is functioning normally.
