The engine computer is no longer looking at the information from the oxygen sensor, at it is going into what is called open loop. Are there any trouble codes present? how does it run?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It runs really good, however it is getting a code of P1117. I am helping one of my wife's single mothers (she picked it out on craigs list) . it had a high idle problem.about 3000 rpms, the shop we got it from had changed the head. I change the idle control valve ....dropped rpms to 1500. Took the intake back off and re sealed all of the gaskets with old fashion Form a gasket no. 2. also clean the back side to the throttle plates. Once back together the Idle is at factory specs. Was driving it to get the computer to set so I could it to pass smog. At about 70 miles it triggered the P1117 code.Can't find a intake leak, but the STFT bounces all over...from 2 and3 to 10 plus then it hits 25 and that sets the ". Fuel Sys 1............OL-fault" line at the top of my Live data screen on the scanner. all of this takes place in the first minuet or so of starting the vehicle.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Just had a thought while talking to my wife. I also had to change a bad injector on this Sportage before I got the idle down, is it possible that there is an intake leak at the injectors? I have tried spraying fluids to find leaks but that area is pretty hard to get to.

Expert:  Canuck Tech replied 1 year ago.
Do you have the option of looking at long term fuel trim? The short term will bounce all over the place - it almost tracks with the oxygen sensor. I also need to know if we are talking positive fuel trim, or negative - I'm assuming positive, though. It is possible to get air leaks past the bottom injector seals, but there are other indicators and possible issues. If the idle is back down to where it should be, this is good, but what about the idle air control number? An air leak will have the idle air control number down at zero. Lean codes also show up because of low fuel pressure, a lying mass airflow sensor, or an ECT or IAT that is sending incorrect information.

I will have to get back with you, hopefully this evening. Thank you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I think I just sent you a long detail list of what I found when I got home and started the Kia , However I don't see it on my dialoge list. Have you recieve any extended information from me since about 545 pm Pacific coast time.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok I think I didn't send this correctly so I will enter it again.


I got home from work, went out and started the Kia with the scanner hooked in I got the STFT bouncin around a minus 16 to 21 ( I thought this to be positive, but paid closer attention after your question), the LTFT reading 17.9 , which is the only reading I have seen there, because I noticed yesterday when driving it that the LTFT seemed to be the only reading that didn't change. I then started to scroll down the list to get the other readings, of which follows, MAP 12.4 to 12.9 , the MAF .657 and that moved to .457 as the engine is warming up, TPS 10.1 to 9.8, 02S B1 (s1) .815 to .110, STFT B1 (S1) minus 25.0 to 0 and plus ,7 as it is warming up, 02S B1 (S2) .470 and STFT B1 S2 n/a. ONCE it hit 195 degress the STFT went to 0 and is staying there , all of this is being done at idle speed 800 rpms with one drop to 760. What have I got going on??

Sorry for the delay - I'll have a look at this in the morning. Canuck
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thank you.

Expert:  Canuck Tech replied 1 year ago.

What year and model is this car?

 

P1117 KIA - HO2S Circuit Low Voltage Bank 1 Sensor 2

 

Possible issues - Faulty HO2S Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2, HO2S Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2 harness is open or shorted, HO2S Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2 electrical circuit poor connection

This is the rear oxygen sensor. Popped one of those in yet?

Hi - I can't answer that question directly because I'm not a "Kia" expert. I'm going to copy and paste your question, and we can figure out the technical stuff later -

 

Yes the check engine light is out. I changed the down stream o2 sensor. and once the vehicle was was the STFT stay at 0 and the LTFT is at 17.9 that has not changed at all during this hole time. The one concern I have now is I still have the "Fuel Sys 1..........OL-fault" is still at the top of my live data screen. I think at this point I am going to have to drive it till the computer resets and see if I get the P1117 code back or any others. So do you agree with this process or do you have any thing that I have messed up on? I will catch you later it is 855 time for a little r & r with the wife , will check back about 10 or so ..Thank you for your help and patience

 

I would go in and "clear" the codes. This should put everything back at the start point (0 in the case fuel trims) and then I would drive it. Can you access "readiness Monitors" with your scanner?

 

 

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I will follow you steps. And the "readiness Monitors" blink until they are set....I don't think I can access them but I will find out. And Thanks Again.
