pump failure is common on this model. replacing the pump, check valve and making sure the fuse is good is usually the answer for this issue. it is pricy but works. the system adds air in cold operation to finish complete combustion in the exhaust manifold so there is no unburnt fuel going to the cat. How are you Ron? thanks for using repairpal. Roy
