Air Pump Check Valve Replacement Cost
RepairPal Fair Price EstimateLearn more
RepairPrice Estimates are based on the estimated time for the repair, labor rates charged by trained automotive professionals, and prices for quality parts.
These estimates are designed to show a range of fair prices, instead of a single price, because there is more than one part that is appropriate to use in each repair, and more than a single mechanic who is qualified to do the repair.
Each estimate is customized for your vehicle and geographic area. Estimates exclude applicable taxes, diagnostic charges and disposal fees.
When replacing the air pump check valve, be sure to perform a thorough inspection of the air injection components and passages. Always use factory parts and check for any needed software updates for the power train control module (PCM).
When the air pump check valve is malfunctioning, the vehicle may perform normally, but may fail an emissions inspection and get poor gas mileage. The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a code set for the secondary air injection system.
An air injection system trouble code isn't always triggered by a defective air pump check valve. It can also be triggered by a restricted passage or air pipe, a defective air pump, an air pump relay failure, or a wiring problem.
