IT COULD ALSO BE YOUR CATALYTIC CONVERTER BECAUSE I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM

We had our check engine light come on and stay on. We took it to our mechanic who has a machine that reads codes. You need to find out what the problem is relating to the diagnostic code and then you can find out what kind of repairs you are looking at. Our code turned out to be an O2 sensor that he said would do no harm to the car at all other than slightly affect our gas mileage. If the check engine light comes on and flashes on and off you need to go directly to a mechanic as this is a more serious problem.

We have a kia Sephia year 2000.. We have codes, P0455, and P0422. We have changed the gas cap. We have a check engine light on and need a smog check. We are not totally mechanically inclined but can find...


You may need a shop manual or a shop to fix it.
Code 455 is a large leak in the EVAP system, and code 422 is a problem with the catalytic converter.
The EVAP leak could be any number of things including the gasket on top of the tank for the fuel pump. The gas tank needs to be pressure tested to look for the leak and that takes special equipment.
And the computer does not think the cat is performing within specs based on the readings from the O2 sensors.

Failed Emmission test


So you are saying the bulb for the check engine light is burned out and needs to be replaced ??
And the trouble codes you listed are for lean fuel mixture which could point to a vac leak or low fuel pressure.

Factory service information has a diagnostic procedure for thing's to check . Hooking up a factory scan tool (tech2) would be the first step ,Checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's
DTC P1661 Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Control Circuit
A voltage is supplied directly to the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL). The powertrain control module (PCM) controls the lamp by grounding the control circuit via an internal switch called a driver. The primary function of the driver is to supply the ground for the component being controlled. Each driver has a fault line which is monitored by the PCM. When the PCM is commanding a component ON, the voltage of the control circuit should be near 0 volts. When the PCM is commanding the control circuit to a component OFF, the voltage potential of the circuit should be near battery voltage. If the fault detection circuit senses a voltage other than what is expected, the fault line status will change causing the DTC to set.
Perform the Powertrain On-Board Diagnostic System Check first, when the following conditions are present:
• When the MIL does not turn ON when the the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position

Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Inoperative
Circuit Description
There should be a steady MIL with the ignition ON and the engine not running. Ignition feed voltage is supplied directly to the MIL bulb. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) turns the MIL ON by grounding the MIL control circuit. No MIL with the key ON, engine not running and DTC P1641 set suggests an open in the MIL control circuit.

The diagnostic procedure for this is 17 step's . , the basic thing's checking B+ voltage at the connector for the IPC , checking the control circuit at the PCM connector , using the scan tool to check for bidirectional control of the MIL lamp . Checking wiring circuit for the control circuit . Disconnect the PCM connector that has control side wire for the MIL an ground it an see if the light lights . If it does ,replace the PCM . Check for open wire . ETC........
Check the MIL control circuit for an open.
If the MIL control circuit is open, repair as necessary. Refer to Wiring Repairs .

Finding wire diagrams would be a big help to you .

My 2007 dodge with 5.9 diesel is showing engine malfunction light and error code of P1740, failed TCC or overdrive solenoid. The truck seems to run ok in overdrive but I don't understand what the TCC...


Code P1740-Torque converter clutch did not lock up when the PCM sent the command. Enabling conditions: No engine or transmissions codes are present, vehicle speed was under 70 MPH, TPS was under 33% open. When the PCM commanded the torque converter to lock, no change was detected in engine speed. Blocking action: This code can block the following monitors: none.

Testing: Check torque converter solenoid for proper operation.

NUMBER: 21-11-00
GROUP: Transmissions
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 02, 2000
SUBJECT: 46RE Transmission MIL Due To DTC P1740 - TCC or OD Solenoid Performance
OVERVIEW: This bulletin involves the replacement of the transmission pressure boost valve cover plate.
MODELS: 2000 - 2001 (AB) Ram Van 2000 - 2001 (AN) Dakota 2000 - 2001 (BR/BE) Ram Truck 2000 - 2001 (DN) Durango

NOTE: THIS BULLETIN APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 46RE TRANSMISSION BUILT BEFORE AUGUST 01, 2000 (MDH O8O1XX).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer may complain of a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination. Upon further analysis, it is determined that the MIL is caused by Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1740 - Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) or overdrive solenoid Performance. Other than the MIL, the customer may not notice any other condition with the transmission.

This condition may be caused by an intermittent and momentary TCC disengagement condition. The transmission valve body pressure boost valve cover plate has been revised with a larger size orifice hole to address this condition.

NOTE: THE DRB III(R) MUST BE OPERATING AT RELEASE LEVEL 50.4 MDS2 SYSTEM CIS CD2067 OR HIGHER (AVAILABLE THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 2, 2000) IN ORDER TO PERFORM THE REVISED TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH STALL TEST. DO NOT USE EARLIER VERSION STALL TEST TO DETERMINE CONDITION OF THE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH.

How to clear OBD II trouble code P0422 for 2001 Kia Sportage


Take your car to an Automotive Parts Store. And they will clear the codes from the on board computers memory for you providing the necessary repairs have been made and don correctly. However the Catalatic Converter Needs to be replaced first or the computer will command the check engine light to come back on, even if the codes were to be cleared. Good Luck and have a Happy New Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

The only fault code on 2001 kia sephia is P0422, catylist threshold low.... car ran for 2 weeks fine after new fuel pump, and then just died like first time.... 126 thousnd miles and plenty of fuel, fuel...


P0422 - Catalyst below threshold.

Catalytic converter is clogged or out of medium.

Replace it.


ACTUAL DIAGNOSTIC:

Fault Code Definition
Code P0422 indicates that the Bank 1 Main Catalytic Converter's emissions efficiency has fallen below the minimum allowable limit. This threshold is tracked by a Catalyst Monitoring Oxygen Sensor located on or near the outlet of the Catalytic Converter.

Symptoms

* Check Engine Light will illuminate
* In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed

Common Problems That Trigger the P0422 Code

* Defective Catalytic Converter
* Engine misfires have damaged the Catalytic Converter
* Internal engine damage resulting in high oil consumption and/or a leaking Head gasket has damaged the Catalytic Converter

Common Misdiagnoses

* Oxygen Sensors are replaced when the real problem is a damaged Catalyst
* Catalyst is replaced when the real problem is internal engine damage, which is producing elevated emissions levels
* Catalyst is replaced when a misfiring engine is the real problem
