Does not sound like it will be around much longer.
How did you delete the pump??...I don't hear that pump anymore....oh wait...I don't have that pump anymore....
Secondary air injection
Engine 132 is fitted with a secondary air injection
pump (electric air pump), which injects additional
fresh air in order to reduce exhaust gas emissions
after a cold start and to accelerate the warming of the
catalytic converter to its reaction temperature.
The necessary air is injected into the exhaust ports in
the cylinder head by the secondary air injection pump
via the combination valve. The secondary air injection
pump is actuated by the ME-SFI [ME] control unit via a
The secondary air injection pump switchover valve is
supplied with vacuum from the vacuum reservoir at
the intake manifold via a check valve.
When actuated, the secondary air injection pump
switchover valve releases vacuum to the combination
valve. This opens and the air injected by the
secondary air injection pump passes through to the
exhaust ports in the cylinder head.
The injected air reacts with the hot exhaust gases in
the outlet port. The carbon monoxide (CO) and hydro-
carbon (HC) are oxidized. This "afterburning"
process increases the exhaust temperature and
The duration of secondary air injection is dependent
on the coolant temperature.
The secondary air injection pump is only actuated at a
coolant temperature of 45 °F to 97 °F (7 °C to 36 °C)
and for a maximum duration of 33 seconds.
