Toyota Tundra: Your Ultimate Guide to Secondary Air Injection Repair
When it comes to the generic code of engine control module (ECM), P0410 code refers to secondary air injection system malfunction. What are the possible reasons why there is an occurrence of secondary air injection to fail or malfunction? One reason for secondary air injection system malfunction is if there is low airflow into the exhaust, which happens when there is blockage into the air injection system air intake. It also happens when the oxygen sensors are getting slow in responding to the increased oxygen in the exhaust. It may also be a result of a partly clogged catalyst which increases back pressure in the exhaust. It also holds the same with relaying contacts of air injection pump not making contact.
How do you know that your vehicle is suffering from secondary air injection malfunction? The Check Engine Light is illuminated and the code is set to ECM memory and freeze frame. How does an auto mechanic diagnose secondary air injection malfunction? The auto mechanic scans codes and documents the freeze frame data (to identify the problem), clears the engine codes and retest the secondary air injection system (detect proper functioning), repairs any oxygen sensor or other codes (prior to P0410 diagnosis), monitors the oxygen sensor pid using a scanner (observe sensor reaction when the air injection pump is activated), and replaces a slow oxygen sensor and retesting the entire system.
What are the most common mistakes when diagnosing secondary air injection malfunction or P0410 code? The most common mistakes of when it comes to secondary air injection malfunction or P0410 code diagnosis include not checking the air injection pump relay for burnt wire connections prior to replacement of an air injection pump, and not checking for proper intake air flow into the air injection pump prior to replacement. If there is secondary air injection malfunction or P0410 code, your vehicle may fail the emission testing. Same is true with a check engine light that is on. In order to repair the malfunctioning secondary air injection system, the air injection pump and power relay must be replaced, the oxygen sensors that are sluggish must be replaced, and the air injection intake filter clogged with dust and debris must be replaced.
