Fuel system cleaner doesn't dissolve metal shavings or repair premature wear caused by them. I'd put money aside for a new set of injectors or trade your Ridgeline for a Frontier before the code returns if I were you.I may have dodged a bullet. I threw in a can of "3M Total fuel system cleaner" in with a half tank of gas and the check engine code P219A turned off at around 100 miles of driving - thank god.
I was in fear and anxiety over this as I was 300 miles out of warranty. I don't think I'll ever buy another new car again. Honda America can go ___ themselves.
Honda states, "...debris from the fuel injector machining process or high pressure fuel pump can cause internal wear or clogging in the injector."I'm having a hard time believing metal shavings from manufacturing are causing this problem. It's more likely that operation of the injectors is producing metal shavings. GM is experiencing that with their diesels.
No.This wouldnt have anything to do with the fuel pump inspection recall this year would it. Being it could corrode because of the drain hole location in the bed over the fuel pump.
See below:If anyone is going to replace his/her own injectors, it appears that an injector seal tool kit is required to removed and install the new injector seals (if the injectors don't come with seals already installed). Also, the fuel pipe must be replaced as well. Those injectors are under a good deal of pressure, so the system must be depressurized before removing any fuel injection components. I'm not sure of the procedure to depressurize the Honda system. The part no. for the injector seal tool kit is 070AG-5A0A100. It runs $265.00. Unbelievable. With the cost of the injectors, the fuel pipe, and the tool set, the cost of replacing the injectors has just ballooned to around $700, even if you DIY.
Going from memory, it could be the O2 sensors. Try Googleing it.Well crap, I got the P0430 code again (2017 Black Edition). Initial code dropped at 28k miles, got the software update. Now the code has resurfaced at 33k, taking her in tomorrow to see what they’ll do.
@zroger73 maybe you’ll know the answer to this question, what would Honda do if I received the P0430 code again after the software update but say I pass the A/F test? What’s the next troubleshooting step or potential cause if not the fuel injectors?
Thanks but it was confirmed to be my injectors. Honda thankfully replaced them all under warranty.Going from memory, it could be the O2 sensors. Try Googleing it.
Good that you got this done before Honda could play hardball. On Bernardi, it shows injector set as a 305 or a 315 part number. You have the 315, so it should be the updated part as it is the part used on the 19's.Thanks but it was confirmed to be my injectors. Honda thankfully replaced them all under warranty.
According to my paper work they tested the injectors and they “failed rich”, I’m assuming this means the air fuel ratio was rich meaning injectors sprayed to much fuel. Which component of the injectors would need to fail to cause then to dump excess fuel?
Well anyway I hope these last more than 33k miles
