Hi there. The code of P2270 is coming up for an issue that is causing the emissions to be out of calibration. Check the following conditions on your engine.

Check

  • For an exhaust leak near O2 sensor
  • For a contaminated or failed HO2S2
  • See if the fuel pressure incorrect
  • There could be a faulty fuel injector
  • There could be a engine coolant leak
  • The purge solenoid valve could be faulty
