Default RE: Secondary Air-Injection Syst. (Incorrect Flow)

Well, if you have an ATW engine, I can give you an idea. That error (Secondary Air Injection System, Incorrect Flow Detected, 16795) can be a bad combination valve. If the combo valve leaks it lets exhaust into the secondary air system. That exhaust will condensate and that water travel all through the secondary air system. In time that will likely corrode the airpump. That water can be a really big problem in the winter when it freezes. Check that combo valve, if the intake side is black, it's a leaker. Replace it and check that airpump, if the problem has been going on for a while, you may need a new one too. HTH.
