SOURCE: check eng light with code po431 replased ox/sensors

P0431 is Warm Up Catalyst Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2). What is happening is this....the O2 sensor downstream of the Catalytic Converter is detecting the Converter is not working as efficiently as it should be (according to your cars specifications). 3 main causes of this is 1.) Defective O2 Sensor (which in your case elminates this one) 2.) Catalytic Converter is no longer functioning properly. or 3.) There is an exhaust leak. You will not notice any driveablitiy problems, however, you may get a rough/hard idle when its cold out. I would take your car to an exhaust shop and have them do a free exhaust system inspection. Alot of places like Midas/Mieneke Car Center/Monroe Muffler to name a few do these checks for free. Thanks for Using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

SOURCE: location of the evaporative cannister solenoid? 2003 saturn vue

Depends if the engine is 3.0 or a 2.2?
3.0 purge is on the top, back side of the intake. Black, cylinder. Looks the same on a 2.2, but is located next to the air filter.

I have a 2003 saturn vue 6 cylinder. my service engine soon light came on and my friend had a diagnostic tool and checked my computer and this code showed up, my friend reset it. it came back on after 12...


From the looks of it this is a very common problem with the 2002-2003 saturn vue. There was a Technical Service Bulletin from saturn about the problem, which means it happens alot but not quite enough to warrant a recall.

You need to replace your thermostat and it is a pain to do, the dealership will charge you about 2 hours flat rate to put it in.

Its not a huge deal to get it replaced right away, but the computer depends on the vehicle being a certain temperature and if it isn't then your performance/emissions will suffer.
