What is a secondary air injection check valve

 

The role of a secondary air injection check valve is to prevent the reverse flow of exhaust gases into the Secondary Air Injection (SAI) system, particularly during specific engine conditions like cold starts.

When a vehicle's engine is cold, secondary air injection check valve produces higher emissions. The SAI system is designed to reduce these emissions by introducing fresh air into the exhaust system during cold starts. The Secondary Air Injection Check Valve is like a one-way door in this system. It ensures that only fresh air, provided by the SAI pump, is allowed into the exhaust manifold. This fresh air helps burn any unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust, lowering emissions. The check valve's critical job is to prevent exhaust gases from flowing backward into the SAI system. This would disrupt the emission-reducing process and potentially lead to higher pollution levels.

 

How do I know if my secondary air injection check valve is bad?

 

Some common signs that can indicate a bad SAI check valve:

  • Check engine light: Illumination of the check engine light on the dashboard, often accompanied by specific error codes related to the SAI system.
  • Increased emissions: Higher emissions levels, potentially leading to failed emissions tests.
  • Poor cold start performance: Rough or problematic cold starts, including rough idling and hesitation.
  • Reduced fuel efficiency: Decreased gas mileage, resulting in fewer miles per gallon.
  • Unusual engine noises: Odd sounds like hissing or rattling may emanate from the SAI system.
  • Smell of unburned fuel: The presence of smell of unburned fuel in the exhaust, noticeable from the tailpipe.
  • Loss of engine power: Possible reduction in engine power, especially during acceleration.
