(1 trip detection logic)


  • Front exhaust pipe assembly (DPF catalyst)

  • Differential pressure sensor assembly

Common Inspection Item:


  • Fuel injection system

  • Intake/Exhaust system

  • After treatment control system

Related Data List
DTC No. Data List
P244B
  • DPF Differential Pressure

  • Catalyst Differential Press

  • Exhaust Fuel Addition FB

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM compares pressure upstream and downstream of the DPF catalyst to monitor the differential pressure. If the differential pressure is large, the ECM determines that the DPF catalyst is contaminated or has deteriorated and illuminates the MIL.

Tech Tips

Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE


  1. READ OUTPUT DTC (RECORD STORED DTC AND FREEZE FRAME DATA)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the tester on.

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / DTC.

    4. Record the stored DTC and freeze frame data.

    5. Check Exhaust Fuel Addition FB and Catalyst Differential Press in the freeze frame data.

      Tech Tips


      • When the Exhaust Fuel Addition FB value is 1.41 or more, it indicates a high possibility of insufficient temperature increase during PM forced regeneration.

      • When the Catalyst Differential Press value is 0.45 or more, it indicates a high possibility that DPF catalyst is clogged.

  2. CHECK ANY OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P244B)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the tester on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / DTC.

    5. Read the DTCs.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      P244B is output A
      P244B is output at the same time as P2463*
      Other relevant DTCs are output B

      Tech Tips

      *: When P244B is output at the same time as P2463, perform this diagnostic procedure. When DTC P244B is not output at the same time as P2463 is output, perform the diagnostic procedure for P244C Click here.

  3. READ VALUE USING INTELLIGENT TESTER (DPF DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Start the engine and turn the tester on.

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / DPF Differential Pressure.

    4. Check the DPF Differential Pressure values from idle speed to unloaded maximum engine speed.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      DPF Differential Pressure increases as engine speed increases from idle speed A
      Except above B
      A01DXW6E02

      Tech Tips

      If DPF Differential Pressure indicates negative pressure for approx. 1 second as shown in the illustration (A) when the engine speed increases, the differential pressure sensor piping of the DPF catalyst may be clogged.

  4. CLEAN OR REPLACE VACUUM TRANSMITTING HOSE


    1. Even though it has been determined that the vacuum transmitting hose needs to be repaired or cleaned, make sure to perform all diagnostic procedures for DTC P200C before repairing or cleaning it.

  5. CHECK FOR BLACK SMOKE


    1. Start the engine and drive the vehicle until the engine coolant temperature reaches 60°C (140°F) or higher.

    2. Stop the vehicle and allow the engine to idle.

    3. Fully depress the accelerator pedal for 5 seconds, and then release it [A].

    4. Repeat the above procedure [A] 10 times [B].

    5. Check for black smoke emission during procedures [A] and [B].

      OK
      Black smoke is emitted less than 5 times.

      Tech Tips

      Even if the black smoke is very thin, count the number of black smoke emissions if there is any visible smoke.


    NG
    OK
  6. READ VALUE USING INTELLIGENT TESTER (CATALYST DIFFERENTIAL PRESS)


    1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

    2. Start the engine and turn the tester on.

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / Catalyst Differential Press.

    4. Check the value of Catalyst Differential Press at 4000 rpm without load.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      Catalyst Differential Press is more than 0.45 A
      Except above B
