It always felt just a little shakey before, but its much better now. I figured I had never cleaned em and they were probably gonna give me trouble anyway. But there's at least a 50 percent chance you've solved your problem without spending any cash at all. But the more volume you add to the system the slower the responce to pressure change which would slow down the computer responce time. Another bulletin for 1999-2002 Odyssey as well as some 2003 Honda Pilot models describes the same issue with the 3.
Instructions Ok so i needed an oil change today so I started knocking that out. Remember that when you are testing any electrical connection, make sure to never depress the testing pin into the connector. Ok so lets begin Ok heres the driver side stuff to remove And the passenger side stuff to remove. You might notice the engine knocking or 'pinging' noise detonation or there could be no symptoms at all. You can do this with carb cleaner. For FourthFord Truck I have the 4.
What causes the P0401 code? The sensor has had a very good track record over the years there were over 4 million sensors produced a year for 5 years and the return rate was 10 parts per million which is pretty dam good being these transducer have to last at least 100000 miles without failure in a very nasty environment. What repairs can fix the P0401 code? Just find something that will be good for cleaning small holes about 1 cm in diameter and about 6-7 inches long. Hopefully that helps some people. This problem is common on the 2. YourMechanic offers certified mobile mechanics who will come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your vehicle.
Unfortunately, sometimes shop owners force their technicians to take the simplest, most obvious route rather than spending extra hours diagnosing a problem more thoroughly. I think I need to add a few statements and clarify some problems here. If I do i'll be sure to make another post. The truck is still running strong with no missing or hesitation. With the F series there is sometimes a removable plate under the fuel injectors that you can remove to expose the passages and any deposits that may have formed, here is a video that I did for that operation.
If the voltages are within spec, move on to clear up this very common blockage. Then, install a new gasket and the throttle body. Most of it is pretty easy, the tubes are a tad tight so you'll have to tug em good to get em off, but for the most part its not bad. Since they are on really tight it took some innovation on gettin them off. Most of the automotive repairs are plug and play so when you replaced the sensor you drained the trapped water in the lines leading to the transducer like a finger covering the end of a drinking straw and the new sensor worked fine.
We proved to ford on a test Dyno in our plant that the build up of water was causing fails readings in the transducer. You're in the middle of imagining hundreds of dollars flying out of your wallet when you decide to ask if a new value is really necessary. Using your multimeter and place your black lead on the negative terminal of your battery. My submission seems almost more confusing to me than helpful. The graph that shows engine vacuum and sensor output voltages is not complete.
The other part which i didnt take a picture of unfortunately, is the stupid cruise control cable. Thanks again for the suggestions. Just clean it out with brake clean, let it dry, and then toss a couple shots of wd-40 in there. Use the same hand held vacuum pump to apply pressure to the sensor. If you don't hear this opening and closing sound, there is less of a chance that it will recover. Water trap sure if you can find one that can handle the heat and the acids Plus find the room to put it in. I took it for a drive, and the idle like I said feels much stronger, not like its gonna die anymore, so thats satisfying, and it feels a tad more responsive.
If you hear the valve inside opening and closing, this means that it's still working and that you can probably get away with cleaning to get things back in order. Anything higher and it should be replaced. Just to let you know. This tech article was originally posted at FordF150. That stuff is actually one of those spray while the vehicle is running, but I actually like my cat converters and the job they do, so I decided against that. I could go farther but that is the premise of how this transducer works on this system. This can happen for multiple reasons and a mechanic needs to diagnose the specific cause for this code to be triggered in your situation.
