Saw that scamatics already just don't see where its hiding at. On passenger side under plastic skirt not sure Looking just don't see hoses going to it. Did the P0491 code tell you same thing I searched? I just bought them 3 parts to hopefully solve engine light. Definitely not a mechanic. I Google everything to save money but stumped on pump location. Thanks for response.

its a valve, not a pump

Already replaced that. Check valve 2 bolts hold it on. Has big hose to front of valve and hose to back of it. Little hose that goes to top of it that runs to solenoid or egr which ever you call it. I bought new air or smog pump with rubber bottom cup type deal 2 hose hook up and one electric wire harness. Same scamatics pic you sent me. Brand new want to replace it. I'll keep looking no its hiding some where from pic you sent me on assenger side. I'll take tire off and remove skirting my be hiding under there.

your vehicle doesn't have one if you don't live or the vehicle wasn't manufactured in California

Found pump under motor like you said. Had water and big chunks of ice in both hoses going to pump. Probably not good. Don't know where water came from. Quite a bit was sitting in both hoses running into pump. Thanks again for all the great info ��!!!

thats usually why the pump fails, is that ice gets lodged in there

Put all new parts on. Engine light still on. Don't know if I should reset light with my obll scanner and see if that takes engine light out or just drive it to see if it goes out. Or disconnect battery for computer to reset itself.

reset it

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
