Keep in mind that not always the things can be repair, anytimes need be replaced; this occur with a code P0410 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Water may have collected in the AIR pump or the vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump
* Blown AIR pump fuse due to freezing up

So, the possible solutions are in a technical service bulletin (TSB) regarding this code for a number of GM models. The TSB calls for the replacement of the AIR pump and the installation of a new secondary injection hose. The TSB can be found on this ACDelco site.

Additionally, if you simply replace the AIR pump the problem may return again (and again). If you replace the pump, also clean out the hoses and replace the one-way check valve. If this is on a GM model that the TSB applies to, follow those instructions in the link above. In a few cases, people have put a small hole in the rubber cover on the pump which allows any water to drain out.

Also, please note that this may be covered under the emissions warranty on the vehicle. If your vehicle is out of bumper-to-bumper warranty, check if the emissions warranty is still valid!

  • Replace the AIR pump AND one-way check valve
  • Test and clean the AIR pump AND test and replace the one-way air check valve
  • Replace the AIR pump inlet hose
  • Replace the AIR pump fuse (found under the hood)

Try it and tell us news.

The Secondary Air Injection System is a pump under the drivers side fender. It pumps air into the exhaust to lower fumes. GM has a problem with most of them. If your car is under 50,000 miles it should be coevered by the Emissions warranty. The problem is somehow the pump becomes filled with water and they do not how. It may cause the Air pump fuse (located under thehood,the black box under the grey box on the passenger side, a yellow 30 amp fuse) to blow. In the winter froze the pump damaging it. Made a hole in the rubber cover on the pump allowing the water to drain to it fixed the problem.
The famous P0410 error code. Now the reason why you would get this code is really quite simple this is what happens in the northeast, the pump shorts out because the water that naturally forms in the exhaust it will back feed pass the check valve now come winter the pump might have enough water in it for it to freeze stopping the pump. Now if the pump is in good shape as it will still turn after it thaws then we maybe almost in the clear. You will have to replace the 30 amp fuse because the pump will pull the max amps to try to make it self turn thus popping the fuse. The location of the fuse in on the passenger side under the hood right next to the horn and the battery inside the fender well its not really hard finding this fuse its in a black plastic thing that's literally attached to the same metal plate that the battery sits on.
Oh and as for the location for the pump, the plastic piece that covers your oil filter if you were to take that off (don't be shy there's only 6 bolts) you're looking for a black rubber bulb that for me anyways was soft to the touch. That is your pump and the plastic flatish round thingy that is your check valve.
(what your looking at for parts:
the air pump(smog pump) - somewhere 95 to 130 bucks depending on were you go
the check valve - around 20 bucks
and if you read the statement that ACDelco sent out they recommend that you change the hoses).

    I believe the pump is working find and if it has a water isnt that water become ice and the pump will freeze and never work. or the fuse will blown and the pump will not work at all. i live in san bruno,ca. and hardly rain or snow.
    should i replace the check valve and the solenoid first to see if it work or disconnect the steel pipe connected between the check valve and the exhaust pipe to see if air is going in to exhaust pipe by using hot wire to the pump.

I have a service engine soon light on and have hooked up an OBD11 reader to it and got code P0410 pertaining to a secondary air injection problem. hoses are fine, pump is new.


P0410 Oldsmobile - Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction

Possible causes: - Faulty Vacuum hoses damaged
- Faulty Air Pump inoperative
- Air bypass solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Air bypass solenoid circuit poor electrical connection
- Air bypass solenoid leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed
- Air diverter valve leaking/blocked or stuck open/closed

Tech notes: Visually inspect AIR pump and AIR bypass valve harness and connector, if connector are OK, then replaced AIR bypass valve.

When is the code detected? The secondary air injection system does not detect the presence of air in the exhaust when introduced by the secondary air injection system.

Possible symptoms: - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Engine hesitation

P0410 Oldsmobile Description An air pump is used on the vehicle to lower tail pipe emissions on start-up. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) grounds the Air pump relay control circuit which energizes the Air pump. The PCM also grounds the Air combination valve vacuum control solenoid circuit, which energizes the Air vacuum control solenoid. Vacuum is then applied to both Air combination valve diaphragms which opens the shut off valves. The PCM enables both circuits simultaneously when Air system operations id desired. When the AIR system is active, then Air pump forces fresh air into the exhaust stream in order to accelerate catalyst operation. The AIR combination valves replace the conventional check valves. When the AIR system is inactive the shut off valves prevent air flow in either direction.

Diagnostic trouble codes P0410, P0491 and P2257


I believe it could be a faulty oxygen sensor or blocked air tubes. Check to make sure air pump is operating.Check green and black wires between pcm and pump relay. Check for 12v power between these two wires with key on check the wires for damage as this has been a problem area on these vehicles. Hope this helps.

1999 Saturn p0410


P0410 - Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction
The P0410 code refers to the emissions system. The AIR pump puts air to the exhaust to lower emissions. It takes in outside air and pumps it through two one-way check valves into each bank of the exhaust.

About 90% of the time that this code is set, the one-way check valves have worn out or failed and allow water (which occurs naturally in the exhaust) back into the pump. In any cold climate, especially in climates with higher humidity, this water may be more excessive. The water partially fills the AIR pump, it can then freeze. When the PCM commands the pump on, if the pump is frozen it cannot turn, thus overloading the circuit and "popping" the fuse.

Possibly symptoms include:
MIL illumination obviously
Hesitation on acceleration
Noise from a bad/stuck AIR pump

A code P0410 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Water may have collected in the AIR pump or the vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump
Blown AIR pump fuse due to freezing up

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.
Jose.

It is really only an emissions issue and won't harm your car's engine ot drivetrain. It will however mean you won't pass emission testing if you live somewhere that tests for that like I do!
