    p0411 incorrect air flow

    Like I said before I had spend a lot of money trying to correct this problem. I posting this is because I'm to spend another 200 to 500 bucks by changing the exhaust manifold. Any ideal.

    I don't know what is causing it, but I have very serious doubts it is the exhaust manifold...

    Doing that is one of the last thing I could to fix it. I have follow every step that gm reconmend to do we even reprogram the ecm. The next 3 steps are change the intake and right side exhuast manifold or change the engine. That exhuast manifold on the top it has a track the fresh air gos into the motor when the pump is on. On the last test that I did we compare my 06 dts with an 08 the only different was with the pump off the baro pressure and the air presure were the same with the pump on my 06dts the air pressure when up 25psi but on the 08 only when up 15psi.

    I hope you are doing this on a cold start. You answered your own question. The pressure is too high. Take of the control valve off and command it on and see if it opens up all the way. It sounds like the valve is not opening all the way. Swap the vale off the 08 for a few days.


    During phase 1, both the AIR pump and the solenoid valve are activated. Normal secondary air function occurs. Expected system pressure is 8–15 kPa above BARO

    The ECM determines that the difference between the predicted system pressure and the actual system pressure is greater than 5 kPa
    OR
    The ECM determines that the difference between the predicted system pressure and the actual system pressure is less than −5 kPa.

    DTC P0411 sets during phase 1 and within 22 seconds when the above conditions are met.

    Update nothing new it is going to cost me a lot of money to fits the problem it is a clog headvalve. If any of you have taken of one of the valvehead at the exhaust outlet they 4 small channel that bring the air from the check valve in to the motor they get plug with carbon and the only way to clean it is by removing the right side head. 06 and newer they only have one check valve the one by the fire wall. Later today I'm going to pst some pic.

    Finally fits it by removing the exhaust manifold agaist the fire wall and inside the head there are 4 holes that bringe the fresh air in to the exhaust system they get clog. To clean it you have to use a small flat head screwdrive and cab cleanner is not easy.
