The Simple Guide To Fixing Your Subaru's Air Pump Faults.

Dealing with issues related to your Subaru's Air Pump? You're not alone. The Air Pump system, common in newer Subarus, can cause problems. But don't worry! There's an easy fix: Air Pump Delete Kits. In this guide, we'll explain everything about Subaru Air Pump systems, their problems, and how to solve them.

Understanding the Subaru Air Pump System:
The Subaru Air Pump system helps reduce emissions when the engine is cold. It adds extra air to the exhaust to clean up pollutants until the catalytic converter warms up. This system works for about a minute after starting the car.

Symptoms and Fault Codes:
If you see the check engine light on your dashboard, it might be because of the Air Pump. Other signs include less power, trouble using certain driving modes, and using more fuel. There are specific codes that tell you if there's a problem with the Air Pump. Keep an eye out for P0410 - Secondary Air Pump System. P0413 - Secondary Air Pump A Open. P0414 Secondary Air Pump Relay A Shortened. P0418 Secondary Air Pump Relay A. P2432 Secondary Air Pump Circuit Low. P2433 - Secondary Air Pump Circuit High. P2441 - Secondary Air Pump Valve 1 Stuck Closed. P2444 - Secondary Air Pump 1 Stuck on B1. If you read these codes from your check engine lights you might consider removing the system.

Living Without the Air Pump System:
Disabling the Air Pump isn't a big deal for many people. It might increase emissions when you start the car, but it's not a huge problem, especially for older Subaru models.
You can remove the system by installing the Fuji Racing Secondary Air Pump Delete kit. Its is up to you to remove the hardware and hoses too - in fact this will tidy up your engine bay making it easier to work on.
