Question about Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Thank you for replying to my question about the OBDC PO178. The only solution I have been able to get from local shops is to replace the $600 sensor. And that is usually after they go somewhere to find out what it even is. We dont even have E-85 fuel available anywhere near here. The dealership is going to charge me 2 arms and 2 legs just to walk in the door. Is this my only option at this point?

You never have to go to a dealer

I have no idea why , with todays scan tools
that access the On Board Systems, and it's
software,why none of the repair shops you went
to can come up with a solution

You need a shop with a Data Base for all vehicle
Thoses systems are called ALLDATA,another
Mitchell,Motor etc. Without that they may as well
close up shop.

If they have no knowledge of Flex Fuel Vehicles
they ,again are behind the curve.

I hate to see you go to a dealer

    E85 was put on hold a week or so ago, because of
    safety concerns.
    The EPA aproved it, but some of congress & sentate
    objected for now

P0178 Fuel Composition Sensor Circuit Low Input

This code has NOTHING to do with regular versus premium. It has to do with whether you've filled with regular or E-85. This sensor is checking for high alcohol content present in E-85. So you'll have to do some more diagnostic work to see if the problem is in the wiring or the sensor iteself.

Icon under the airbag icon lights up now and then,what is it?

You may gave a collision sensor somewhere that is in the process of going out. If you have access to an OBDC reader that also detects airbag functions you can easily determine which one.

Getting a replacement for it is a different animal, though.

OBDC PO178. Changed the fuel filter, air filter, and spark plugs. How exactly do you change the flex fuel sensor? Where is it located? And are the replica/ bypass parts ok to use instead if you never plan...

On Board Diagnostic Codes-- DO NOT tell you
what is wrong or what to replace

None of what you replaced was necessary for a PO178

Have it scanned and diagnosed professionally

A p0340 code

Code P0340... camshaft position sensor circuit fault.

Note: this is a CIRCUIT fault, meaning it may or may not be the sensor itself. It could be a wiring problem (loose, short, open), a bad pcm (computer) or the sensor itself. You can try replacing the sensor, but understand there's the possibility that it might not be the cure you hope for. If the sensor itself is not bad then you will have to do some electrical troubleshooting. Depending on your troubleshooting skills, anything beyond sensor replacement might require you to seek help from a local shop.
