Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: Electronic controlled engine mount

Description

In the idle range, ECM turns OFF the electronically-controlled engine mount control solenoid valve and applies manifold pressure to the electronically controlled engine mount. This decreases damping force of the electronically- controlled engine mount and absorbs vibrations traveling from the engine to the body for improving the quietness.

In the driving range, ECM turns ON the electronically-controlled engine mount control solenoid valve and cuts manifold pressure applied on the electronically-controlled engine mount. This increases damping force of the electronically-controlled engine mount and reduces vibrations generated during driving.

Component Function Check

1.CHECK OVERALL FUNCTION

With CONSULT

  1. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
  2. Select "ENGINE MOUNTING" in "ACTIVE TEST" mode with CONSULT and touch "ON/OFF" on the CONSULT screen.
  3. Check that the motor operating sound is heard from front electronic controlled engine mount and rear electronic controlled engine mount for about 0.5 seconds according to the switching condition of "ENGINE MOUNTING".

Without CONSULT

  1. Make sure that gear position is P or N.
  2. Start engine and let it idle.
  3. Change the engine speed from idle to more than 1,000 rpm and then return to idle (with vehicle stopped).
  4. Check that the motor operating sound is heard from front electronic controlled engine mount for and rear electronic controlled engine mount about 0.5 seconds when changing engine speed.

    It is better to hear the operating sound around the left side front wheel house.

Diagnosis Procedure

1.CHECK VACUUM SOURCE

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Reconnect electronic controlled engine mount control solenoid valve harness connector.
  3. Disconnect vacuum hose connected to electronic controlled engine mount.
  4. Start engine and let it idle.
  5. Check vacuum hose for vacuum existence.

Vacuum should exist

2.CHECK VACUUM HOSES AND VACUUM GALLERY

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Check vacuum hoses and vacuum gallery for clogging, cracks or improper connection.

3.CHECK ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED ENGINE MOUNT CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT

4.DETECT MALFUNCTIONING PART

Check the following.

  • 10 A fuse (No. 3)
  • Fuse block (J/B) E6
  • Harness connectors E3, F1
  • Junction connectors E44, E46
  • Harness for open or short between electronic controlled engine mount control solenoid valve and fuse

5.CHECK ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED ENGINE MOUNT CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE OUTPUT SIGNAL CIRCUIT FOR OPEN AND SHORT

  1. Disconnect ECM harness connector.
  2. Check the continuity between ECM harness connector and electronic controlled engine mount control solenoid valve harness connector.
  3. Also check harness for short to ground and short to power.

7.CHECK ELECTRONIC CONTROLLED ENGINE MOUNT

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Install vacuum pump (A) to electronic controlled engine mount (1).
  3. Check that a vacuum is maintained when applying the vacuum of -40 kPa (-0.41 kg/cm2, -5.8 psi) to electronic controlled engine mount.
  4. Also visually check electronic controlled engine mount.
