Diagnostic Aids

  • Low system airflow can cause an intermittent complaint. Inspect for the following conditions:
    • Any restriction in the exhaust system that may produce back pressure
    • Pinched, kinked, restricted, or leaking pipes, hoses, or fittings
    • A restricted pump inlet hose, duct, or filter
    • Pinched, kinked, restricted, or leaking vacuum lines
    • Heat damage
  • A short to voltage in the pump relay control circuit can result in the AIR pump running continuously with the ignition OFF by back-feeding to ground. This will eventually result in pump failure.
  • An AIR pump that had become inoperative and had shown indications of having exhaust gases in the outlet port would indicate check valve failure.
  • Notice Do not operate the AIR pump for more than 60 seconds. Continuous operation of the AIR pump in excess of 60 seconds will damage the AIR pump.

    If the DTC cannot be duplicated and is determined to be intermittent, reviewing the Failure Records data can be useful in determining when the DTC was last set. Also refer to Intermittent Conditions

P0355....Ignition Coil E Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction would suggest you need to replace your coil packs. Heat damages them after time and will eventually lead to misfire and very rough running motor especially when it's damp out.

P0700....Transmission Control System Malfunction

I would start researching the possibility of a bad ground, a loose main cable to the battery, etc. If the codes come back, the P0700 can be very serious and could require attention at a Transmission shop or dealership. There is a remote possibility that the codes are entirely unrelated.

Is it safe to drive whilst the yellow engine symbol is on the dashboard?


If it is the check engine light, Yellow light that looks like a engine, or may say "Check engine", Yes, it is safe to drive until you can get it checked. As long as the vehicle is driving normal. If the light starts flashing, DO NOT DRIVE it. A flashing check engine light means a misfire and could cause a fire due to raw fuel going down the exhaust into the cat converters.

When i drive the car the check eng light comes on then in a bit it will go out I check for code's but there's no code's?


You can only check the code whilst the light is on. Leave the code reader plugged in. When the light comes on, pull over if safe to do so and read the code reader.

I had a similar thing on my Lexus. It was a thermostat sensor that was telling the engine stayed hotter than it should for a while until the thermostat opened.

How to fix fault p0021 and engine failsafe program


(powertrain control module, also called an ECM). That consists of a few different components but the P0021 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is above a set limit (over-advanced), the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft. A P0021 engine code is basically the same as a P0011 code, except this is for Bank 2, not Bank 1.
Symptoms Possible sumptoms of OBD code P0021
Most likely a P0021 DTC will result in one of the following: hard starting, poor idle, and/or stalling. There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.
Causes Possible causes of OBD code P0021
A P0021 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
Possible Solutions This DTC code is a result of a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.

Fault code P0021


Hi there:P0021 - "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 2)

A code P0021 refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module, also called an ECM). That consists of a few different components but the P0021 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is above a set limit (over-advanced), the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft. A P0021 engine code is basically the same as a P0011 code, except this is for Bank 2, not Bank 1.

Most likely a P0021 DTC will result in one of the following: hard starting, poor idle, and/or stalling. There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.


A P0021 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:Incorrect camshaft timingWiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve control solenoid systemContinuous oil flow to VCT piston chamberFailed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)

Possible Solutions:This DTC code is a result of a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.To reset the fuel pump, press the button on the switch. The switch is located immediately below the hole in the trunk side trim.

I have a 1999 Saturn sc3. It was fine until the hurricane this past weekend. As soon as I turned the car on, the l"Service Engine Soon" light came on. I am wondering if it is safe to drive or...


The Service Engine soon light indicates that something is likely wrong with your emissions system. It could be any number of things but it is OK to drive to a repair shop or parts shop to get the codes read. Some of these issues can cause damage if you don't get the vehicle repaired soon but you can drive it a little bit (you won't need to get it towed).
I would recommend an Autozone or Pep Boys to get the code read as it may be something as simple as replacing the gas cap.

Check engine light was on then went off now back onagain


Q1: What to do if my "Check Engine" light is on?
A1: The simplest way is to visit your local dealer for proper diagnostic. They have all the equipment and information needed to correct the problem. The problem might even be covered by the manufacturers warranty and possibly repaired free of charge.

Q2: Is it safe to drive if my "Check Engine" light is on?
A2: It really depends what code is stored and what caused it. In worst cases driving with "Check engine" light may cause more damage to the vehicle. A car may even stall while driving. If your check engine light came on, I'd certainly recommend to visit your dealer or a mechanic as soon as possible, just to be on a safe side. If the Check Engine light is flashing, this means that the engine computer (ECM) has detected that your engine is misfiring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Have the your vehicle inspected as soon as possible.
