R8 8-cyl

  • 18,000 miles
Check engine light illuminated indicating a failure on secondary air ports. Technician found that secondary air pump motor was fine as well as all vacuum lines. It was suspected after inspection of the intake manifold and top cylinder heads were at fault, due to excessive carbon build-up. No air circulating due to the decrease in air flow from the excessive carbon build-up. Updated 7/29/15
