Condition

Some customers may comment that the MIL is illuminated.

Some technicians may find one or more of the following DTCs set in the Engine Control Module (ECM).

  • - P0172: Fuel Trim System Rich Bank 1
  • - P0175: Fuel Trim System Rich Bank 2

Cause

This condition may be caused by a possible high pressure fuel pump.

Correction

If SI does not isolate the cause of the rich condition, the following information may be helpful:

  1. 1. Disconnect the dirty air side of the PCV system.
  2. 2. Plug the vacuum supply.
  3. 3. Start the engine and monitor the fuel trims in closed loop.
    • - If the fuel trims return to normal, this is a good indicator that the high pressure fuel pump is leaking.

With this concern, we do not see a lot of fuel in the crankcase, so changing the oil may not isolate the concern. 

When the high pressure fuel pump leaks, the PCV will pull the fuel mist straight into the intake, causing the concern.
