Honda P0175 Front Bank 2 Fuel System Too Rich
Code P0175 Honda is DTC code indicating that the ECM(Engine control module) has detected fuel system problem causing fuel mixture to be too rich. Specifically p0175 means that the fuel trim on bank 2 has reached a limit and exceeded the predetermined threshold set by the vehicle manufacturer.
Possible Causes Code P0175 Honda
1.Faulty or bad oxygen sensor can cause engine control module to incorrectly interpret the air/fuel mixture leading to rich fuel mixture on bank 2.
2.If MAF sensor is dirty or not functioning correctly it can cause engine control module to miscalculate the air/fuel mixture.
3.Clogged fuel injector on bank 2 can result in too rich fuel mixture.
4.Faulty fuel pressure regulator can cause too much fuel to be delivered to the engine resulting rich fuel mixture.
5.Vacuum leak in the engine can cause unmetered air to enter engine resulting rich fuel mixture.
6.Clogged or damaged exhaust system can cause the engine to run too rich due to restricted air flow.
7.In some cases power control module may be the reason for p0175.
Honda P0175 Possible Symptoms
1.Check engine light illumination is the most common symptom of p0175.
2.As engine burn more fuel than it needs a rich fuel mixture can result in decreased fuel economy.
3.When fuel mixture is not properly balanced rich fuel mixture can cause engine to idle roughly.
4.Rich fuel mixture can cause engine to misfire resulting in lack of power and acceleration.
5.Engine may hesitate or stall during acceleration as the rich fuel mixture is not properly combusting.
6.When fuel mixture is excessively rich it can produce strong fuel odor from the exhaust or the engine bay.
How To Fix P0175 Honda
1.Inspect oxygen sensor on bank 2 for proper operation. If sensor are not functioning correctly replace them.
2.Clean and inspect the mass air flow sensor to ensure it is functioning correctly. Replace the mass air flow sensor if required.
3.Inspect fuel injector on bank 2 to ensure it is functioning correctly. Replace any injector that are not functioning correctly.
4.Check the fuel pressure regulator for proper functioning replace the fuel pressure regulator if found faulty.
5.Check for vacuum leaks and repair if necessary.
6.Inspect exhaust system for damage or blockage that may be causing restricted airflow, replace or repair damaged component.
7.If all other component have been checked and functioning properly repair or replace the power control module. In rare cases faulty power control module can trigger p0175.
Its important to have the vehicle inspected and diagnosed by professional mechanic to find and resolve issue related with Honda P0175 for proper repair.
