Thank You.
Hello and welcome. which part are you wanting to replace on the air pump system?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
the engine code stated secondary air damper selenoid. so i want to take that off to clean any corrosion before i buy a new one, and im not sure where it is or how to take it off. Do you have a diagram.

ok, you probalby have a code P0410, and on this vehicle is usually the A.I.R. check valve on the back cylinder head. is this what you need instructions on?

maybe i wasnt the one to read it the guy at napa said the suggested repair . but ill start there. the engine light comes on after an hour after being reset

Ok, I will post the instructions for the air pump check valve 90 percent of the time this will repiar the air pump, if you have a code P0411, if your not sure, might want to have the system scanned again, just to make sure what fault code is stored in the system.

 

 

  • Remove the fuel injector sight shield.
