Question about Chevrolet Astro
Welcome to Fixya Usually this code points to either carbon buildup or a bad EGR valve. However that doesn't rule out the following:
P0113 - The Intake Air Temperature Sensor converts the air temperature into a voltage that is high when the Intake Air is cold and low as the engine warms up. P0113 indicates a high voltage input from the Intake Air Temperature to the Power Train Control Module.
Common Problems That Trigger the P0113 Code
1. Using a scan tool command the EGR valve to open while watching the actual EGR position (it will probably be labeled "desired EGR" or something similar). The actual EGR position should be very close to the "desired" EGR position. If it is, then the problem is likely intermittent. It may have been a lodged piece of carbon that has since dislodged, or it could be a bad EGR valve winding that intermittently opens or shorts as the valve temperature changes.
2. If the EGR "desired" position is not close to the "actual" position, then unplug the EGR sensor. Check for a good 5 Volt reference voltage to the connector. If it doesn't show a reference voltage, repair an open or short in the 5 Volt reference circuit.
3. If there is a 5 volt reference voltage, activate the EGR with the scanner, monitor the EGR ground circuit with a DVOM (Digital Volt/Ohm meter). It should indicate a good ground. If it doesn't then repair the ground circuit.
4. If there is a good ground, then check the control circuit. It should indicate voltage that varies according to the percentage that the EGR is open. As it's open more, the voltage should increase accordingly. If it does, then replace the EGR valve.
5. If the voltage doesn't increase incrementally, then repair open or short in EGR control circuit.
P1351 - Ignition Diagnostic Monitor Input Circuit. This is usually a wiring issue at the connector at the distributor, specifically a damaged wire or bad connector. Replace the wires and carefully examine the wires at the distributor if they have 'blind' breaks in the wiring, so feel the insulation and check for areas where it is easy to stretch the wire, indicating a break in the wire.
