2006 ION-3 Sedan
Default DTC code P1174

2006 Ion 3 2.4
The check engine light came on and when I plugged my scanner into it I got P1174 but no explanation as to what the code means. Can anyone explain please.
Cheers
Chris

Default Re: DTC code P1174

P1174 indicates fuel trim cylinder balance malfunction. This means that your cylinder-to-cylinder air to fuel ratio is not balanced properly. Usually caused by a faulty heated oxygen sensor located on the exhaust or a simple vacuum leak. It will not harm your vehicle but it will lower your fuel mileage and the engine light will remain on until the issue is fixed

Thanks 2006 ion2 for the quick reply. The code is apparently newer than my scan tool

I took the car to the dealer last night. They flushed the injectors(at my expense) and said if the code showed up again they would replace all the injectors un warranty

How do you know if you have the "first style injectors"? Have an 06 ion 2.4l that has had this code for some time now. Car drives fine, but I would like to fix it. Thanks

you "should", worst case, be able to have a tech at a GM dealership just look at them and be able to tell you for free.

Did they reprogram the PCM? There is a new program that coinsides with the new style injectors.

Sorry for not replying sooner. According to the work order when they replaced the injectors they updated the PCM software

The bulletin states that cleaning the injectors will not correct this problem. We have not had any cars return after following the bulletins replacement of injectors and program PCM. Dont know why they didnt follow the bulletin. you may want to go back and ask for a refund on the injector cleaning

If so read post #4. They charged for a injector clean that doesnt fix the problem.

read post 5. yes, they were initially only cleaned, but later replaced. and trying to get GM to refund anything is harder than getting them to cover something under warranty.

Gm is not refunding anything, the dealer should. They miss-diagnosed the concern. They should refund the cost of the injector flush. Its worth a try. dont now what your deal is. Our service dept would give the refund. The OP can at least try.

Default Re: DTC code P1174

I am glad to have found this forum. My '07 Ion 3 (2.4L) showed a check engine light and I took it to a dealer here in FL. Of course, the light was not showing when I got there. According to the receipt, it showed DTCS P0171, P0300 and P1174. They replaced the 4 injectors and reprogrammed PCM just as someone here said was the proper fix. With no male figure to help me along with this problem, it was nice to read that they didn't take this old lady to the cleaners. Price=$0.00, covered under warranty!! Thanks!

Way2QWK,

Do you know the mileage and age limitation for that bulletin. Local dealer says vehicle "not covered under warranty"

Thanks

just because it is in a TSB does not mean it is covered under warranty or is free. the TSB is issued to tell dealer how to deal with and prevent common problems.

I know TSB's are not necessarily a warranty item but when I read the above I just assumed they where covered under warranty, if not why did they warranty them? I am just trying to get a second opinion as to when the warranty is up on fuel injectors for this 2006 Ion 2.4. Thanks for the reply!
