Dodge Journey: Pump, air

Description

The air injection pump is located on the left side of the engine compartment. The pump is operated by an internal electrical motor and is mounted to a bracket by rubber isolators. An inlet and outlet air hoses are attached to the air pump. A heat shield is attached at the air pump mounting bracket to ensure that the air pump is not damaged by heat coming off the exhaust system.

Operation

The electric air pump only functions during cold starts. The PCM will not command the electric air pump to run if the engine coolant temperature is 10º Celsius (18º Fahrenheit) above ambient temperature or if the engine coolant temperature is above 37º Celsius (98.6º Fahrenheit). The air pump will not run more than 20 seconds during this cold start condition. The air inlet tube to the electric air pump is equipped with a mass air flow (MAF) sensor. This MAF sensor monitors air flow to the exhaust system and is used to diagnose the system by making sure the correct amount of air, not too much or too little, reaches the exhaust system. Each component of the secondary air system is diagnosed assuming the other part is functioning correctly. The diagnostic tool can command the air pump ON with the key ON and engine OFF (KOEO).
