Check engine light on. the read out was PO411 secondary air injector incorrect flow

P0411 - Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
On GM cars that still needed Air injection to clean the exhaust they did away with the so called "SMOG" pump, they went to an DC motor driven Air Injection pump, this system is known as the secindary air injection pump, this pump makes a very destictive loud whirling/whinning noise when it kicks on, this happens only on a cold engine, the reason is the fuel injection system is very dirty cold, the pump helps to burn the excess fuel in the exhaust gases. The pump is commanded to run by the computer that operates the whole system, this is the PCM or Powertrain Control Module. The PCM looks for a change in the voltage signal from the Oxygen sensor (O2) to determine if the pump is running. The first thing to do is determine if the pump is working, if it doesn't detect a signal change from the O2 sensor it sets fault code P0411. When the engine is cold do you hear a whirling/whinning noise from uinder the hood? I will bet not, the pumps electric motor is the Achilles Heal of the system and fails on a regular basis, this happens more often in areas tha have heavy rains. Below are the possibilties for the code. The pump is sold as a complete unit, cost is about $300.00, that is just an esitmate as i don't have a new parts book, time to install about 1 hour labor...

My Casio G Shock Giez mode button seems to be having a problem. Doesn't change modes.

Hi anzprad,

Your mode button may be sticking, and not making proper contact into the switch on the movement. Try lightly spraying compressed air around the buttons, then, either electronic cleaner, or silcone spray around just the buttons. If that doesn't help, you may have water damage from moisture encroaching into the case from a leaky seal. Be sure to clean off any excess spray with a soft cloth.

If that doesn't help, contact Casio at the following numbers (if don't you have this info already):

My 360 will not play any disks, and makes a grinding sounds when the disk is inside. It's only 8 months old, and everything is stock.

If it makes grinding sounds while a disc is inside it, then it has probably got something to do with the motor spinning the disc. Something is either preventing it from spinning (excess dust can do this) or it's on it way to dying. Best bet is to call Microsoft and ask them for a repair order. With your X-box only being 8 months old, it should still be under warranty and therefor should cost you nothing to fix :)

My ps3 doest display anything nor makes any sounds please help

Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!

Ps3 not registering disc's

Hi there my PS3 experienced a similar fault (40gb) & I would recomend you contact Sony PS3 Helpline as explained below.
This fault was fixed by contacting Sony Helpline directly & explaining the fault (laser/hard drive damaged). They agreed to fix this fault free of charge & honoured my warranty as I bought this system in January 2007 by faxing them proof of purchase. They arranged to collect my PS3 via courier & advised that it will be returned within approx 3 weeks along with an extended 3 month warranty. I have to say that Sony Helpline were very helpful & their customer assistance was excellent & if your PS3 does breakdown I would recomend that you contact the Helpline first to enquire if they can assist with the problem before seeking to have this fixed at a potential cost of £100.00 upwards by independant PS3 fixers.

92 toyota celica whirling sound

Without hearing it, it is hard to tell. But, I would first be looking at the idler pulley bearing, they have been known to fail; and make noise. Remove the idler pulley, and spin it manually. If it feels rough, and makes any noise, it is bad.
