Dropped car off and the tech has been on and off working on a diagnosis. For the P1128 error code I really don't have the luxury of ignoring the code. Hasn't even been prepped for sale as a used car yet. This is done most easily from below the car in the area near the oil filter. If you have someone close with a similar car you might try swapping them to see if the codes come back. This is a common problem with 1999-2000 Accents. If I bought one -- and it ain't going to happen -- I'd not track it so maybe the plow behavior would never come up.
A lot more smoke at startup when I was experimenting with disconnected. Oh, no charge for the diagnostics time. I double checked it was the same code and wrote down all the details. This makes sense when you think that a sensor can be reporting the correct fact but what caused the excess air to be reported may well not be the sensor but something else like a leak which caused there to be truly excess air. I dont want to tell you to replace it without having it tested cause they are a bit pricey but check around, you never know. . It turned out it had nothing to do with the.
I also suspect some coolant disappearing every now and then its may be just bleeding since I had coolant overflowing, replaced reservoir cap and had topped it up. If the is bad then it is sending the wrong signal to the. How do I test if the is really bad. Evacuate the air trapped in the system with a machine designed to do that? So i tried it and it caused the car to rev or get audibly louder and there is a sucking sound. My errors were on one bank only, but it turned out I had a cracked oil filler tube vacuum leak. A temporary swap would rule the in or out.
Hi Did you ever resolve the problem, as I have the same P1128 and P1130 with poor engine performance? Thanx for the quick replys, guys. A lot more smoke at startup when I was experimenting with disconnected. The forward and aft oxygen sensors will register no change, and that will hint to the car that the cats are not working or missing your case. Repair all visual things first,them code related issues. My had blown and everything has been good after I had that replaced. Anyway, all is back together and the engine idles happily again. I'll let the more experienced folks answer your other questions.
Like you said I can clear it and it wont return for a good 100+ miles at least right now im trying to get it to throw again get the mile gauge and then clean the maf. I haven't bothered to look into if slighly narrower rear tires can be fitted or if it takes other mod's to address the plow. I couldnt start it again after that first time. You might elect to just ignore it. They are; a problem in the fuel delivery system engine coolant temperature sensor, wiring or connections map sensor, wiring or connections o2 sensor, wiring or connections mechanical problem within the engine a problem with the powertrain control module As you can see, this particular code is very vague as to the actual issue, and therefore, there is a list of tests that coincide with the diagnosis. If the comes back again, i'll test more, especially the cruise at 3k+ that you mention. Thanks for your reply Mike.
Chuck Thanks for the info Chuck. Sure - its a bit more complex. Mike Focke also indeed listed the main culprits for this code as well - unfortunately, it's not super cut-and-dry. Also is the car stock? On earlier occasions, it came back by then. Really this would be driven as much by curiosity to see in what condition the factory installed bearing in after all the miles than to address any real concerns the bearing was about to blow. The part itself is not expensive and a lot of people manage to swap it on their own. Some smoke at startup but havent ever noticed it while running.
And the P1128 stayed away. Then Monday I drove it to the office. My 996 Turbo's 6-speed fluid change requires more time but I don't recall the difference now -- due to the fact the Turbo transmission has plastic panels under it that require removing before one can actually get at the transmission --- but just about the same amount of fluid. The one new Porsche that calls to me and might open my famously closed wallet. It was not severe -- at least to me -- and I never really thought much about it. Kind of like the difference between my Boxster and my 996 Turbo.
Nothing that I know of. Hardware like the needle bearings that support the clutch control shaft. Sorry that I did not update on the post. I don't know the labor cost, but of course it requires dropping the transmission to install the new hardware. I left it as is and returned to it this weekend.
There are many great features available to you once you register at RennTech. I also checked for suction at the oil top-up port in the rear trunk and that was indeed slightly difficult to open due to excess pressure and a clearly evident suction could be felt when I placed my palm on the mouth. Good luck Thanks for the reply! Hooked up my laptop and took it for a spin 20 odd miles the code hasnt come back on. I also suspect some coolant disappearing every now and then its may be just bleeding since I had coolant overflowing, replaced reservoir cap and had topped it up. Its not something that comes at low rpm or something but just first in the morning. If this is something that you need some help to troubleshoot, contact a certified mechanic, like those available at. From my understanding, the measures air flow into the engine by heating a wire in the air stream and measuring how much current it takes to keep it hot.
It turned out it had nothing to do with the. Randy Pobst raved about it and several folks I know took their cars there. . The tech admits this is a real puzzler. I measured again and it was back to around 12. That, I am told, is a conclusive test.
