Can you tell me what fault code is recorded when the light comes on?
just waiting on my diagnostic laptop booting up
P0171 is system too lean.
P0411 is secondary air injection incorrect flow.
This would suggest a split hose somewhere
Would those be the cause of the check engine light? If I shared this info with the mechanic, do you think this would fix the problem?
Allowing the engine to draw air
He would at least know where to start
So, just to clarify: not enough or too much air?
Incorrect amount of air
System is unable to adjust which is why the sensors detect a fault
Gotcha', thanks for checking this out. Do you want to know the outcome after I ask the mechanic to intervene?
Does not always mean the sensor is at fault as some would believe
I am new to this type of process. How would I let you know after I end this session?
Just come back to this thread.
Cool, thanks again
