The Flux Capacitor is back online...
« on: September 22, 2003, 07:22:04 PM »
...and I can do alot more than 88MPH! :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I received my new MAF this morning.  I went home for lunch and put the new one in.  I cleared the codes and came back to work.  Right off the bat things were better.  I mean I just had to touch the gas pedal a little bit and off I went.  I did not fully realize how much power I had lost.  I think some of the improvement is also due to the new vacuum hoses.

Time will tell if this will fix the CEL that I was getting, but with the improvement I think it will.

Thanks for all for input and encouragement.

Emissions light came back on when I was heading north on I-25 from Hampden.  I will have to hook the VAG up tonight to see what got tripped.  Strange thing is I have not noticed any loss of power.  Oh well, I will have an update tonight.  :(

**UPDATE**  here is the error code:

VAG-COM Version: Release 303.1

Control Module Part Number: 4B0 906 018 BH
  Component and/or Version: 1.8L R4/5VT     G   0006
           Software Coding: 07551
            Work Shop Code: WSC 00028
1 Faults Found:
16795 - Secondary Air Injection System: Incorrect Flow Detected
        P0411 - 35-00 - -


I will have to look to see what it all may mean.

Dave sorry to hear that hte CEL came back on.  I know this can be very frustrating.  Let us know what you find out.

After clearing the code last night, I have yet to see it come back on.  Knock on wood, I hope it was just a hiccup.  I did a little searching on CB5 last night and most threads point to either faulty DV, vacuum hoses or a faulty Secondary Air pump.  The first two had been changed out over the last year and a half.  I will see if the CEL comes back on.

No need to look any further. You still have a vacuum leak. Culprits are along these lines:

I have not really had a chance to look at things.  The CEL came back on the 28th (5 days after the first time) and I cleared it again.  I would be a little surprised if it is the hoses, I replaced all four only a few months ago with silicone hoses.  The next chance that I will really have to crawl under the car is when I do my oil change in about 2,000mi.

Dave, correct me if I am wrong, but I think we replaced all 4 on  your car.  

There still may be one that is loose though, so check the fittings on them and make sure they are not loose.

Winston is right.
 
99% of the time, that code is a loose or leaking vacuum hose. You replaced all of the little ones, it sounds like, but did you check the larger hoses?

Recently, a lot of people on CB5 are reporting more larger molded hose failures, as opposed to the usual braided (4mm) ones.

I think something is still leaking.

Just trying to help,
Mark

Good thinking, Mark.  I haven't heard too much on the larger hoses failing, but that is also part of the vaccum recirculation system and bear further investigation.  

Dave, you can still get the CEL for this and the turbo may be acting fine.  You just aren't getting your full boost.  It does appear to point in this direction.  The multiple points of failure for this system are usually what everyone goes through.  Wait until you get chipped.  You'll be glad you found all of these problems before then.

Thanks Mark and Winston.

I will check all hoses.  I used metal clamps when I put the new hose on.  Since the 28th I have not had the error come back.
