Model Years Affected: 2001, 2002, 2003

Average Mileage: 123,178 mi (87,000 mi - 155,000 mi)


Water may be drawn into the secondary air injection (AIR) pump causing the pump to fail and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a kit available from General Motors to relocate the air intake for the pump which should prevent future damage from water intrusion.

    I've failed the emissions twice already I was getting the P0140 code which means secondary air injections pump so I took it to the shop and they cleared the code and cel went off but it came on again and this time when I went into the shop. They replaced the Idle air control Valve because it broke when they took it off to clean it and the cel went off. I'm going back to the shop on friday because I need to pass the emissions Im wondering if I change the secondary air injection pump will this fix my problem. They are very costly for the parts themselves. Im so frustrated at this point that I might just pay $150.00 and get a waiver until 2014 when I will be able to save and get the secondary air injection pump fixed. Help what should I do
