Make sure you can blow through it in the direction of flow. Great simple process carlsbad Howdy. Because of this operation, this system tends to increase the burning speed of the gas mixture, improve fuel consumption, and increase the stability in running conditions. I too have a p1130 code after washing my motor at the car wash. My daughters 2001 Pathfinder is experiencing some strange problems. I'd expect a solenoid to have a return spring, but it may rely on vacuum, airflow, or something else for this.
I checked all lines going in an out of the solenoid and to the check switch. Standing along side of the front drivers fender and looking down at the rear of the hood you can get a glimpse of the pcv valve just about 2 - 3 inches below the manifold cover about the center … , It is mounted on a bracket that has some leeway so that you can twist this bracket if necessary. I started by lubricating and freeing the actuator itself after reading other people with a similar issue and I can manually move the actualtor freely to the open and closed position with no significant resistance which I am not sure it is supposed to do. According to this a little crud in the vacuum line keeps the actuator from working right, and generates an error code. Any comments would be nice. I'll post further updates if anything changes but blowing out the vacuum lines is free and if it really gets you 2 mpg, everyone should do it whether they have the code or not. Take the following with a grain of salt, as I didn't even know what a swirl valve was until today.
The code indicated a Swirl Control Valve. Do you think, I should just give in to the dealer????? Edited June 8, 2011 by Slartibartfast Take the following with a grain of salt, as I didn't even know what a swirl valve was until today. They also have a mark on the outside which should line up with the retention brackets that you push the hoses into. Or why the problem remains? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. To my disbelief, the code came back after 5 minutes of driving.
On the top left side passenger of the engine just left of the top black center cover is a sensor with with two wires I think that will twist off half a turn to get it off. Next some reading told me to blow out the vacuum lines with air--they get clogged up. Have you heard the phrase a picture is worth 1000 words? It is located toward the rear of the engine compartment. The other possibility is that someone up above just plain had pitty on me and my mechanical ability. Frankly, the manual is confusing. Where exactly is the control valve located? Refer to engine control manual.
And did you take care of your Lean condition, either you have 0131 front O2 sensor B1 or 0171 fuel injection B1. Given that, the likely cause of failure is the plunger getting gunked up and not moving. There is no replacing required. Because of this operation, this system tends to increase the burning speed of the gas mixture, improve fuel consumption, and increase the stability in running conditions. Second, engine and suspension failures. I reset the code but it came back in about 150 miles later.
But then sometimes it goes shut. There's a black hose going into it. The first Nissan Maxima was introduced in 1981 for the 1982 model year when it was called as Datsun Maxima to replace the Datsun 810. I would consider getting an Ultra Guage. He reset my enging light and it did not go on again. The sensor responds to the valve shaft movement.
Simply put the new valve with the spring in and reinstall. Since you do not have code, I'M thinking that you might have something defective within the sensors needed that would not raise a code if defective. The easiest way to check the system is to have someone perform a smoke test. I'm pretty sure the solenoid didn't fail electrically. But it's very likely it is a failed o-ring or bad selenoid, I've seen that alot. For years, Nissan Parts Deal has been your 1 source for Genuine Maxima parts. It is obscured by its rather large hose.
Thanks but not sure I could really pin point the problem, just know what actions ended up finally doing the trick for this particular Pathy. I just solved the problem for my 2004 nissan skyline 250gt. Anyone considering engine repair might consider clearing the lines first before doing any kind of work that might disturb the vacuum lines. If you pull off the front of the air cleaner as to change the filter, you can see it coming in at an angle on the left, back side of the valve cover. Posted on Sep 22, 2009 the 2004 sentra correct not listed as Swirl control valve position sensor online none on ebay etc if no other nissan vehicle part listing to suit the sentra possibly discontinued part might need to source a used one from a wrecker P1137 2004 Nissan Sentra Description Swirl control valve position sensor is installed on the intake manifold. In this condition, this system tends to increase power by improving intake efficiency via reduction of intake flow resistance, intake flow.
There's a black hose going into it. I took it offroad a little bit then checked it at higher revs on the highway and no light came back. I used the part number you listed and all my codes are now cleared and I can get my inspection tomorrow. I used the part number you listed and all my codes are now cleared and I can get my inspection tomorrow. P0442: Have you inspected the lines, charcoal cannister etc? Actually, I have a 2001, 5. This actually clogged up the scv solenoid and the vacuum box. Remove that plate, then you can remove the valve which has an O ring on it.
