Replacing The Secondary Air Injection Valve

Recommended Posts

I replaced this back in February, and it was a "knuckle-buster", but it only took an hour or so. My only recommendation is that you go out and get the longest pair of bent needle-nose pliers you can find to remove the hose clips. Also I'd recommend using some grease or moisture at least to ease the hoses onto the new part. Other than that, the replacement wasn't too difficult.

One other thing, I don't know what led you to the secondary air injection valve, but you may want to do a quick vacuum check on the valve to be sure that it is your problem. I understand that there is also a check valve that can cause problems in this system as well.

Good luck,

Well I had the dealership check it and they told me it was the secondary air injection valve, so I did what you guys had mentioned about checling for vacume and noticed that it had no vacume right out of the valve, so yesterday I decided to buy and replace the part myself (costing me only 80 dollars) and I tell you it was one of the hardest projects I have done!! Like you said a knucklebuster, and while I was replacing the valve I noticed that the metal tube it sits on was rusted and replacing that....I dont even wanna go there, so far the CE light has been off so well just have to wait and see...thanks for the input
