FAQs Jackson Bowman September 18, 2022

What would cause a P0411 code?

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0411 stands for Secondary Air Injection Incorrect Flow Detected. This code warns of a possible airflow problem in the secondary air system.

How do you fix a secondary air injection system malfunction?

What causes a secondary air injection system malfunction?

A defective pump is generally the most common cause of system failure. Penetrating moisture can cause damage that leads to the pump seizing up. A faulty ground and power supply can also cause the pump to fail.

Where is the secondary air injection system located?

The secondary air injection pump is usually located on the engine or at least in the engine compartment. It can sometimes be hidden deep in the engine compartment, but more often than not it is installed quite visible on the engine.

Can a O2 sensor cause a P0411 code?

What does code P0411 mean? The P0411 diagnostic trouble code indicates a general lack of flow from a vehicle’s secondary air injection circuit. This lack of airflow is in turn registered by the affected vehicle’s O2 sensors and recorded by the PCM/ECM as a diagnostic error.

How do you clean a secondary air injection valve?

How do you bypass a secondary air injection system?

How much does it cost to fix a secondary air injection?

In total, repairing a secondary air injection system will cost you around $450. This cost is split between the cost of the parts and the cost of labor. New parts cost around $250, while labor typically costs another $150-$200.

Can I drive without secondary air injection?

Technically you can drive without a secondary injection pump. However, this is not recommended. What is that? This stems from the fact that a faulty secondary injection pump can cause a multitude of driveability-related problems, most of which can vary greatly in severity from case to case.

What controls the secondary air pump?

The secondary air shut-off valve ensures that secondary air is only routed to the exhaust manifold during the cold start phase. Secondary air valves are either actuated by a solenoid switching valve under vacuum control or are opened by the pressure of the secondary air pump.

Can I drive with P0410?

Can I drive my vehicle with a P0410 trouble code and an illuminated CEL? You can drive your vehicle with a P0410, but remember that your vehicle will fail a smog inspection. Problems with the air injection system do not cause drivability symptoms.

Can an air injection pump cause a misfire?

Can a secondary air pump cause misfires? Yes, misfires are a common sign of a bad secondary air system. If the pump is not working properly, there will be too much fuel and not enough oxygen in your vehicle, often causing misfires.

How do you know if your secondary air pump is working?

Start the vehicle engine. If the power supply to the secondary air pump is OK, but the secondary air pump makes scratching, whistling or scratching noises or does not run at all, the secondary air pump must be replaced. Check the electrical contacts of the power supply to the secondary air pump.

How do you know if your air pump valve is bad?

How do you know if your smog pump is bad?

One of the first symptoms of a bad or failed smog pump is a rough running motor. When a smog pump fails, the finely tuned air-fuel ratios can be disrupted, negatively impacting engine performance. The engine may have trouble idling, the engine speed may drop or stall when the pedal is pressed.

Is a P0411 code bad?

DTC P0411 Indicates that the engine control unit (ECU) has detected an airflow problem within the secondary air injection system. The trouble code is fairly vague as it does not identify a specific defective air injection component and requires hands-on diagnostics to determine the basic P0411 fault.

What is a secondary air injection check valve?

An ACDelco GM Genuine Secondary Air Injection Check Valve prevents exhaust gases from flowing back through the air injection system and is a GM recommended replacement for your vehicle’s original component.

What is code P0418 mean?

P0418 code definition

A P0418 trouble code is an indicator that a problem has occurred in the secondary air injection system.

How is secondary air injection system diagnosed?
