Re: My secondary air/p0491 code story....

My p0491 code cleared itself today. I didn't do anything. How is that possible?

Re: My secondary air/p0491 code story....

Did you need to take the spark plugs out and blow compressed air to remove the liquid cleaner to avoid hydrolock?
Thank you

Re: My secondary air/p0491 code story....

Yes, but do you need to use a liquid carburetor cleaner for that? I'm afraid I will hydrolock the engine, because I don't know how to avoid hydrolocking :)

lol! :) No I think I asked wrong. What I meant is that if it's super easy to do and safe, I'd rather do it myself with the bav auto kit. So its a question of DIY safety.

no exhaust coming from right side

Hi,

Is it normal that the right (side) exhaust pipe has no airflow at idle? I checked it with my hand and I can feel the exhaust coming out of the left side, but not the right side.
Thanks
