Question about 1996 Chevrolet Suburban

Open Question

I have a 1996 chevy suburban with a 5.3 liter engine and I have a check engine light that comes on intermitantly when I run the codes I get the following codes: P1133 CHEVROLET - O2 Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 P1406 CHEVROLET - EGR Valve Pintle Position Circuit P0700 CHEVROLET - Transaxle Control System Malfunction P1192 - Voltage External I do have an exhaust leak between the headers and the exhaust pipe on the drivers side other than that I just had a tune up about 3 months ago. the check engine light started coming on about 3 weeks ago and when it comes on it stays on for a day at most and goes off then stays off for a few days then comes back on. I don't know if all the trouble codes are from the same problem or multiple issues so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for any help anyone may be able to provide.

SOURCE: I have trouble codes P0700 (transmission control

P1192 Post-catalyst Fuel Trim System Bank 1 Check your Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit, could be dirty or loose wires or just stop working. Usually you have 4 of these under your car so check all. Fault Code P0700

Here's what my service manual says:

EATX Controller DTC Present

This SBEC III or JTEC DTC indicates that the EATX or Aisin controller has an active fault and has illuminated the MIL via a CCD (EATX) or SCI (Aisin) message. The spscific fault must be acquired from the EATX via CCD or from the Aisin via ISO-9141.

Here's what I know: MIL=malfunction indicator light; DTC=diganostic trouble code; CCD=Chrysler collision detection. Beyond that, I'm clueless. Sounds like it needs to be read out at the dealer. Then again, if it was a one-time glitch, it might clear itself after several drive cycles.

Replace the transaxle or see if it can be rebuilt. Those transaxles have incorporated electronic solenoids that can fail causing the codes to appear as you described. One thing you might check prior to getting it rebuilt or replaced is have the computer checked and check all of your wiring connections. Anytime you have a wiring connector on the exterior of the vehicle you can get corrosion issues it may be simply cleaning the connectors, placing dielectric grease on them and reattaching. Before cleaning any connectors always disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Will most likely have to replace the egr solenoid assembly to cure the 1406 code. The 1886 is trans slip code.

Unless you use a scan tool to clear the fault, it will not go away by itself until 40 consecutive warm up cycles have been completed without a fault. You can go to Autozone and they will clear the alarm for you. You can also clear it by disconnecting the PCM ( powertrain control module ) battery feed.

If the alarm returns after they've cleared it, the problem still exists. If the old EGR valve showed signs of excessive heat on it, check the exhaust system for blockage. The catalytic converter may be blocked.

That is the ODB11 Code Reader Port. When your engine malfunction light comes on, you attach a code reader to that socket and the machine give a P Code. That code tells the problem as stated from the ECM (engine control module.

Got a 1997 Chevy Suburban 5.7 liter 4 wheel drive and the check engine light is steadily on. I not too long ago changed the spark plugs and just changed the EGR VALVE. As I drive now it's running rough....

What you do when the engine light comes on is to stop the vehicle ---check the oil level and let it cool down then check the coolant level at the radiator. The engine light is the message to you that the CPU has found sensors /servos that have gone outside set parameters and your course of action then is to prove that the engine is safe then run the fault codes to find the recorded faults and fix them . use the code reader to reset the CPU to ensure that the faults are fixed.

Check engine light flashes on my chevy one Ton 8.1 liter 4x4

Depending on age of your truck, whenever you check engine light comes on even for an instant, it sets an error code in your computer. If it is 1996 and newer you can have any auto parts store read the error codes for you. If you have a 1995 and older then you might need to check the manual to find out how to read the codes.

O2 sensor cross talk bank to bank irregular, change 02 sensor(s).

Sounds like Idle air control sensor bad, All of your codes interact, I would start with 02 sensor.

If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?
