I assume by your description your talking about the little crossover hose that goes from the exhaust manifold to the Air Filter housing. This acts a little like a pre-heater to an extent. Get a couple of circular clamps to tighten down on the hose connectors to hold them in place. That is the easiest solution to this. I see this problem a lot. It really doesn't effect the vehicle performance that much but in states that require inspections it the crossover isn't present it can fail you on inspection.

    Thank you but the hoses that I put on it keep blowing, I just bought a high heat hose andit blew, there is a silver thing that it is connected to, Lthe hose) and someone said that that is what's bad....that it should be stopping the air flow and its not, I'm not sure what this silver thing is, could it be a gasket?

Keep blowing p174 left bank lean rough idle


code p 0174 ( which is probably what you meant to say) refers to system too lean bank 2====causes --intake /exhaust leak---fuel pressure/pump---injector/s---AIR system---hose connection/s
possibel items
intake ---leaking vacuum hoses ,booster,vent controls , transmission actuator
exhaust cracked flexible section in exhaust pipe connected to exhaust manifold
fuel pressure -- faulty pressure regulator ( would affect both banks
pump-- unlikely as again it would affect both banks
injectors --very possible --not working properly , blocked
HO2S sensor as well as it controls the injector operation to that bank in the exhaust manifold or before the cat converter

1989 Plynouth Acclaim. What is the hose that runs out of the bottom of the air filter assembly to above the oxygen sensor/manifold area in the engine. Where that hose attaches is all rotted out and I


Sounds like you are talking about the heater hose that provides hot air from the exhaust manifold. It may still be available from the dealer.

What is EGR valve?


Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. It lets a metered amount of exhaust into the intake manifold. This mixes with the gas-air mix to lower combustion temperatures and reduce nitrogen oxide pollutants. These valves get deposits on them over the years and can stick or get plugged up. The valves and related exhaust pipes or manifold passages should be cleaned after long mileage.

What is code PO410 secondary air injection


P0410 code is set when the air injection system does not blow air into the exhaust system. The monitor that runs and test the system is the Oxygen sensors. With the truck cold follow the air supply hoses to the exhaust check valves. The air pump is located by the heater box under the hood on top of fender well. The exhaust check valves are screwed onto the injection pipes that are connected to the exhaust manifold. remove these and test blowing into them air should only pass one direction (hose side to threaded side only) this is the most common failure. Pump should run on a cold engine and can be heard with hood open if not operating check fuses and relay okay then use jumper wires to test motor is should operate does not replace.

I was wondering does the air pump on the gmc 2001 "**** or blow" from the open ended 3/4" rubber hose atttached to the motor.


The air pump blows air into a set of manifolds attached to the exhaust manifolds. The air helps reburn excess carbon to help with emissions. The other side does indeed "****".(air that is)

What is emission system


THE EMISSION SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO TRAP AND STORE FUEL VAPORS THAT EVAPORATE FROM THE FUEL TANK.THROTTLE BODY AND INTAKE MANIFOLD DURING NON OPERATION OR IDLING STORE THEM IN THE CHARCOAL CANISTER AND THEN ROUTE THEM INTO THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER TO BE BURNED DURING ENGINE OPERATION.THE PCV VALVE ITS PART OF THE EMISSION SYSTEM.IT SCAVENGING CRANKCASE VAPORS IT DOES THIS BY CIRCULATING FRESH AIR FROM THE AIR CLEANER THROUGH THE CRANKCASE WHERE IT MIXES WITH BLOW BY GASES AND IS THEN REROUTED THROUGH A PCV VALVE TO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD.THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS PART OF THE EMISSION SYSTEM IT REDUCE POLLUTANTS FROM THE EXHAUST GAS STREAM IT LOWERS LEVELS OF OXIDES OF NITROGEN AS WELL AS HYDROCARBONS AND CARBON MONOXIDE.THE EGR VALVE PART OF EMISSION SYSTEM IT LOWER OXIDES OF NITROGEN EMISSION LEVELS CAUSED BY HIGH COMBUSTION TEMPERATURES.THE EGR VALVE RECIRCULATES A SMALL AMOUNT OF EXHAUST GASES INTO INTAKE MANIFOLD.SMOG PUMP IS ALSO EMISSION CONTROL COMPONENT IT INJECTING AIR INTO THE EXHAUST DOWNSTREAM FROM THE EXHAUST PORTS TO HELP COMPLETE THE COMBUSTION OF ANY UNBURNED GASES AFTER THEY LEAVE THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER.

Po411


This is a code related to the air flow from the air pump (aka pollution pump) into your exhaust system. This air pump takes outside air and injects it in the exhaust stream after the engine to help burn off any residual fuel or pollutants. When P0411 comes up, the control module detects a lack of air flow either caused by a defective air pump, leaking/clogged air hoses, or bad check valves.

Keeps blowing rubber elbow atached to emissions exhaust check valve


The check valve is not "checking". Check valve is the commonly used term to describe a "one-way" valve - a valve that lets the flowing media move in one direction only. Exhaust gas is blowing the rubber hose off of the check valve.

In this case it is installed at the air injecton manifold inlet and is there to prevent any exhaust gases from backing up into the supply piping and hoses. The ones that deliver the compressed air from the pumps to the air injection tubes.

There are two modes of operation during which the diverter valves dump that compressed air (either to the air filter housing or to atmosphere). It is only during these modes (hard deceleration or cold start) that the check valve is necessary,

They are extremely well made and can generally be made to operate correctly again by a thorough cleaning. Just remove the mounting bolt that attaches to the air pipe manifold and then while holding the large compression nut on the bottom, break and seperate the outlet from the manifold. They are usually made of good stainless steel and will come apart (and reassemble easily).

Clean them out with lots of hot water and some penetrating oil - if necessary. Check function by simply blowing in the bottom and top alternately. Should pass air from the top down but not from the bottom up.

Air pollution


Your secondary air injection check valves are probably stuck open allowing exhaust to back flow into the hoses, melting them when the AIR pump isn't running.

Scrambler pollution tube repair


I believe that is a check valve. There is a replaceable type that has a female pipe thread on the side that goes to the air injection manifold (pollution tube). So, the ideal repair would be to weld a pipe thread adapter to the manifold in place of the factory check valve, then thread on one of the newer style check valves. That is, of course, if you cannot find a replacement factory style air injection manifold
