Model Years Affected: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010

Average Mileage: 100,037 mi (80,000 mi - 135,000 mi)


One or both secondary air injection check valves may become restricted causing poor air flow resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. It is often recommend to replace both check valves even if a fault code is set for only one bank of cylinders. Replacing only one valve may result in a return trip to the repair shop.

    The dealer said the problem was a faulty Air Check Valve - Part # 12567733. The cost of the part was not
    too bad but the labor they stated was out of hand. Other forums discuss the replacement and step by step
    procedures while stating it not difficult or time consuming to replace. Apparently the dealer I visited
    has not read this posting.
