Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Maybe I can help.

 

You said you have the 4.4 supercharged engine. I just want to make sure as the supercharged engine was a 4.2 liter and there was a 4.4 liter non supercharged engine. Let me know. You can also post your VIN number.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

SALSH23436A933625


4.2 L

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
That's what I figured.

That code is for the supercharger coolant pump. On your vehicle the supercharger has its own radiator and uses an electric pump to pump the coolant. The problem is usually the pump but of course we need to check for power and ground to the pump.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have a new replacement pump. How do I check for power and ground to the pump?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Just set your meter to dc volts and place one lead to each wire as you should read battery voltage with the engine running.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I have checked the coolant pump socket and it seems to be bad. Just replace the socket, cleared codes and had a test drive. The same REP came on the dash with P0300, P0301, P0302, P0304

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Ok this could be a problem with the coils and/or spark plugs. Or possibly a small vacuum leak as these engines have issues with the supercharger seals and gaskets causing this.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Where can I find these supercharger seals and gaskets?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
There are seals on the top plate and side intercoolers. The other gaskets are in the back and on the bottom of the runners. We should smoke test the engine to check for leaks.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Vehicle vibrates and can be felt on the steering either in Drive or Reverse but not in Park or Neutral. What could be the cause of this vibration?

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
I would check the motor mounts and clean the throttle bore and blade.
