|Code P0175 Buick Tech Notes

The P0175 code means that more gasoline is detected in the exhaust gases exiting the combustion chamber. If the P0175 is set in along with the P0172 code, it is highly likely that the problem is caused by leaking fuel injectors. If there are no leaking fuel injectors, the next step is to replace the air filter and clean the Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. If the problem persists the MAF or Front Heated Oxygen (O2) Sensor will need to be replaced.

|Code P0175 Buick Description

The Engine Control Module (ECM) controls a Closed Loop air/fuel metering system to provide the best possible combination of drivability, fuel economy, and emission control. The ECM monitors the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) signal voltage and adjusts the fuel delivery based on the signal voltage while in Closed Loop. A change made to the fuel delivery changes the long and short-term fuel trim values. The short-term fuel trim values change rapidly in response to the HO2S signal voltages. These changes fine-tune the engine fueling. The long-term fuel trim values change in response to trends in the short-term fuel trim. The long-term fuel trim makes coarse adjustments to fueling to re-center and restore control to short-term fuel trim. The ideal fuel trim values are around 0 %. A positive fuel trim value indicates that the ECM is adding fuel to compensate for a lean condition. A negative fuel trim value indicates that the ECM is reducing the amount of fuel to compensate for a rich condition. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set when the average long-term fuel trim weighted average value is greater or less than a calibrated value.
