This is a Saturn 3 door with the 4 cyl DOHC engine throwing a P 0410 code. I need the location of the secondary air pump.

It should be in the r fender area towards the front.

I know I don't have to say it but.............Just cuz it has a 410, that doesn't mean the pump is bad

I did locate the secondary air pump and all the associated parts - tubes, valves and solenoid. The pump is running the 65 seconds on start-up as it should and is pumping air. The tubes seem to be all OK. The one problem I see is the two stainless steel gaskets - one on the exhaust manifold and the other on the stainless tube attached to the check valve are buggered up, not real flat.

I've ordered new gaskets - $9.60 each - but I have no idea if this will cure the problem. I know the air is measured in parts per billion, so any gap in these gaskets is a problem, but still...

The Problerm: IM code: secondary air not ready along with the fault code, 0410. On this vehicle, we can have 1 IM not ready, but we have 2. The Evap system and the secondary air pump.

What and where is the sensor that measures this secondary air system?
