As such, these requests are far less likely to cause a code to be stored. Unfortunately it's quite a basic code-reader and doesn't have live data. I had Vauxhall diagnose it and they told me it was the vent valve on the petrol tank which they replaced and reset all values and reset the management light. Any advice would be great. Pay close attention to the operation of the post catalytic oxygen sensor, and how it registers changes in the fuel trim. The P0170 code can range in seriousness.
How do you troubleshoot code P0170? Step 6 If the fuel lines all check out fine, consult the manual on the correct procedure to test the fuel pressure regulator, which could be located either on the fuel rail, or in the fuel tank as part of the pump canister. If this code exists for a long period of time in the powertrain control module, serious damage may result. Note that this is a rare event, and the fault must be sought elsewhere before any controller is replaced. This problem is likely a powertrain control module if no other issues exist. Also a mate was in car earlier and he said the jerking feel that i have feels like a loose mount of some sort, like engine mount or i think he said gearbox mount. Note that catalytic converter replacements can be hugely expensive, and that all other avenues must be explored to resolve the problem before a converter is replaced in error. Didn't think it would make a difference becuase the manifold doesn't budge.
S If the code was 5678 you would press the first button 5 times button 2 6 times button 3 7 times button 4 8 times Good Luck i have a corsa b but if they are as hard to find as mine then they are in the middle of the engine to get to mine i lift the cover that says ecotec on it undo the 2 bolts that were under the cover and pull the bit i just undid out and there are my spark plugs but be careful because u might need a sp … ecial tool to get them out as they are so far in a normal socket cant reach them i have a corsa c 2002 and the above response is correct. The car is driving spot on bit the light is driving me mental it shouldn't come on if their is no fault. After the repairs are made, the mechanic would reset the Check Engine Light and run the engine. This may include repairing rich or lean engine issues before moving forward. No I just cut and pasted them, oh I can't remember. High oil consumption can deposit a film of oil on the element, causing inaccurate readings, and in many cases, a simple cleaning of the element will resolve this code.
No, we do not hand out car sponsorships. It had just had an aftermarket exhaust setup installed. Four days later the light came back on, I went straight back to Vauxhalls they put it back on the diagnostics and told me there was nothing wrong with the car now the light has come back on, it is driving better since the new valve was fitted and has better acceleration but I can't understand why the light is coming on - any help would be appreciated. Many Ford vehicles, including Explorer and F150 had a common problem with leaking gaskets between upper and lower intake manifolds causing the codes P0171 and P0174. My died on 80,000 and was a '52 plate making it about 7 years at the time. However, if the code does return, it is likely that the catalytic converter is at fault.
I've had about four cels in less then a month, one was that fuel trim one and the other three were for the cat. Its either ontop of the gear box or behind the speedclock on the rev counter. Recently the car threw a code while I was out of town. I do know is must have an external carbon canister near the tank. If the oxygen sensors call for a fuel increase, the powertrain control module will act out a positive fuel trim.
If the code does not immediately return after the completion of a few drive cycles, it would be safe to assume that the problem had been resolved. Although it is rare for fuel pressure problems not to be indicated by a warning light or a stored trouble code for that matter , it does happen and especially on older vehicles. If the code P0170 comes back, then there must be another problem. Impressively long list though you must agree. You already have a gauge, correct? Symptoms of this code may vary depending on the vehicle and other conditions that are present.
Mechanic did mention my vectra feels very weak compared to others and has less power. What are the common causes of code P0170? I have recently put it in to the garage to be looked at and had the follwing things done and tested but still with no joy. He didn't replace the cat. Oh, the long and convoluted history of my Land Cruiser! It's annoying me going up n down to vx like a yoyo then banging my head against a brick wall explaining it to them again. What are the symptoms of code P0170? It may be clogged, or damaged due to the long-term effect of code P0170.
This is especially the case in many European cars, especially Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. Unable to get to the garage for a few days hence why I'm looking for any advice I can get beforehand to see if there's anything I can try myself in the meantime eg. Anyway set about taking it out to check it, most screws holding it in were fairly tight but the upper corner one where the leak sound was was finger tight at best. Its 90% short trips into town so not expecting great mpg. It's a long one but here goes.
In these cases, the underlying cause s of the oil contamination must be resolved before attempting to diagnose P0170. They have just confirmed a record week in terms of the amount of business they have done through the forums so it's certainly worth a call. May be worth investing in! If the driver experiences drivability issues they may decide to repair the vehicle sooner to avoid future problems. Look for damaged, burnt, broken, shorted, or corroded wiring and connectors. Try replacing the gas cap. I've had it for ~4 years ,and have put ~15K miles on it since then. Check to see of you have and manifold leaks, or a leak between the turbo and the manifold.
