Question Asked: SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT/CODE PO401
January 04, 2012, 04:28 PM
I HAVE BEEN TRYING SINCE JULY TO FIND OUT WHY MY SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT CONTINUES TO KEEP COMING ON.THE CODE IS PO401,WHICH IS INSUFFICIENT AIR FLOW. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR TO MITSUBISHI AND PRECISION AUTO; BETWEEN THE TWO I HAVE REPLACED THE EGR SOLENOID AND VALVE, THE MAPS SENSOR, THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR, THE O2 SENSORS,REPLACED HOSES AND CLEANED THE TUBING FOR CARBON BUILDUP. NOW PRECISION THINKS IT MIGHT BE THE COMPUTER SYSTEM IN THE CAR. IF SO HOW WILL YOU KNOW WITHOUT HAVING TO REPLACE THE COMPUTER? IS THERE A TEST?. ALL I KNOW THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT CONTINUES TO COME BACK ON. PLEASE HELP!!!! ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!!

I HAVE ASKED FOR HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM BEFORE...MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CONTINUES TO COME ON WITH A CODE OF PO401, WHICH IS INSUFFICIENT AIR FLOW. I HAVE HAD THE EGR SOLENOID, VALVE AND VACUUM HOSE REPLACED AND THE TUBING AND ORIFICE HAS BEEN CLEANED OF CARBON. RESEARCHING THE PROBLEM I READ WHERE THE DPFE SENSOR COULD BE THE PROBLEM, BUT MY MECHANIC SAID THERE WAS NO DPFE SENSOR IN A MITSUBISHI. IS THAT TRUE? COULD IT BE A COMPUTER ISSUE AND HOW DO YOU KNOW IF IT IS? PLEASE HELP I AM DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS.I HAVE USED THE MITSUBISHI DEALERSHIP AND PRECISION AUTO.
