Question about Oldsmobile Intrigue

2 Answers

I have a 2001 oldsmobile intrigue and the mechanic, from where i just bought it a little over a week ago, says it needs a secondary air pump replaced and it will cost over 400 dollars to fix. I need to know if i can change it myself or if they have to fix it. Actually, my husband will fix it I don't have a clue what it is, also, if it could be something else and what it could be.

I would start by calling the police.They may or may not direct you to a lawyer but most states have what is called a 30 day lemon law for occassions such as this,even if the car was sold 'As is'.If you can notice it,with them being so-called certified mechanics or sales people,they surely were aware of some problem.Even if they say there is nothing they can do,just mention a lawyer even if you have not consulted one yet as they may change their mind quickly.If they do nothing,a lawyer will usually at least give a free consult about what path to take.If a lawyer does get involved and you end up winning,I can almost guarantee that the shop will be paying for YOUR lawyer too.A good idea to do first also would be to google lemon laws to familiarize yourself regarding the terms.It may also list when it applies and for what situations.Wrong is wrong.Call the media.Some channels have consumer lawyers which help people in your situation.Make it known to them if you do contact a channel that there needs to be urgency due to time restrictions.I would make this situation sopublicized,it would drive them out of business.Please let me know how you do and if this helps in any way.Just reply here and i will get an autolink to your post.Good luck!

Well normally most engines only have one air pump I would get a second mechanic to go over the vehicle.An if your not happy return it most states you can within 30 days unless bought as is.

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.

Expensive. Depending on whether it's just the air pump (usually) or solenoid valves, couple to several hundred bucks. Others can fix this, but need salvage or ebay parts.
