Yes it was a P0410 code. Is this part difficult to replace? Is it simple < just replace. No bleeding any lines or anything. I am pretty mechanically inclined. And finally, can this part be purchased at any auto parts store or a dealer item
Expert:  Jerry replied 5 years ago.

Not too bad, (about one hour) but you will want to get the pump from the dealer as well as the hose kit for it. There has been a service bulletin for that. Let me give it to you.

 

 

 

Emissions - SES Lamp ON/DTC P0410/AIR Pump Inop.
Notes

Bulletin No.: 02-06-04-024G

Date: June 05, 2006

TECHNICAL

Subject:
Service Engine Soon (SES)/Check Engine Light MIL Illuminated, Secondary Air Injection Reaction (AIR) Pump Ingesting Water and DTC P0410 Set (Replace Secondary AIR Pump and Inlet Hose Assembly or Filter Kit)

 

Models:
2000-2003 Cadillac DeVille
2001-2002 Cadillac Eldorado
2001-2004 Cadillac SLS, STS
2001-2003 Oldsmobile Aurora

 

with 3.5L V6, 4.0L or 4.6L V8 Engine (VINs H, C, Y, 9 - RPOs LX5, L47, LD8, L37)

Supercede:

This bulletin is being revised to update the model year for Cadillac DeVille, parts usage information and enhance the bulletin content. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 02-06-04-024F (Section 6 - Engine).

Condition

Some customers may comment on the "Service Engine Soon" (U.S.) or "Check Engine Soon" (Canada) malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) being illuminated. Technicians may find these additional conditions:

^DTC P0410 set.

 

^Evidence of water in the Secondary Air Injection Reaction (AIR) Pump.

 

^Secondary AIR Pump shorted out/inoperative.

 

Cause

This condition may be due to water being ingested at the secondary air injection reaction (AIR) pump inlet hose, causing the pump to short out or seize up.

Diagnostic Information

DTC P0410

Refer to SI for diagnostic information on DTC P0410.

If the diagnostic information above indicates a faulty AIR pump, follow the correction procedure below.

Note: After the service procedure in this bulletin was been completed, the Secondary Air Injection Shut-Off valve(s) must be checked. A stuck valve (from carbon) can cause exhaust condensation to collect in the air pump causing a repeat non-function AIR pump.

 

Correction

Aurora and DeVille

Note: A new Secondary AIR pump and Inlet hose assembly (kit), P/N 19515548 is now available and must be installed if the AIR pump is replaced. Non-replacement and re-routing of the AIR pump inlet hose when servicing the AIR pump may result in a repeat non4unction AIR pump from water ingestion.

10.Reposition the splash shield to allow access for the new hose assembly installation.

 

Important:

Important: Located on the inner fender behind the air box there is a oval stamped hole. The new AIR filter must snap into this hole in order for the AIR pump to avoid ingesting water. Removal of the Air Cleaner Assembly may be necessary.
