MIL Comes On With One or More DTCs: P0301 thru P0304, P3400, or P3497

(Supersedes 13-055, dated July 19, 2013; see REVISION SUMMARY)

 

REVISION SUMMARY

2013 Odyssey vehicles were added.

 

SYMPTOM

The MIL comes on with one or more misfire DTC(s) P0301 thru P0304 (Number 1-4 cylinder misfire detected).

DTC P3400 (rocker arm oil pressure switch B) and/or P3497 (rocker arm oil pressure switch C) may also be stored.

 

POSSIBLE CAUSE

During a cold start, the engine oil pump outputs high oil pressure. DTCs P3400 and P3497 are set because of the high oil pressure measured at the VCM spool valve. High oil pressure causes the VCM spool valves to activate, causing cylinders 1 through 4 to go into cylinder cut mode even though the ECU did not activate the VCM spool valve.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

Replace the relief valve spring.

DIAGNOSIS

  1. Connect the HDS, and check for any of these DTCs: P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P3400, and/or P3497.
    • If one or more DTCs are set, go to step 2.
    • If no DTCs are set, this bulletin does not apply. Continue with normal troubleshooting.
  2. Check the on-board snapshot (at time 0) or the freeze frame data. Look at the ROCKER ARM OIL PRESSURE value.
    • If the value is greater than 92 psi, go to REPAIR PROCEDURE.
    • If the value is 92 psi or less, this bulletin does not apply. Continue with normal troubleshooting.
