C0156 Mitsubishi Concept code definition:
C0156 is a kind of OBD-II Diagnostic C-Chassis Diagnostic Trouble Code for Mitsubishi Concept.

C0156 Mitsubishi Concept or the Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow is the set whenever the computer sees that there is a problem with the flow coming from the purge valve or the purge flow is not enough within the EVAP system.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a C0156 Mitsubishi Concept diagnostic trouble code may include:
  • Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated
  • Carbon Buildup on O2 Sensor
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Reduction in engine performance, especially at low RPM levels
Place of C0156 in engine

Possible Causes :

  • Dirty air cleaner element Damaged DPF
  • A plugged converter will cause of host of driveability problems as well as set this code. A severely plugged converter will result in the inability to increase rpm when under load. Look for a code such as P0421 -- catalytic converter efficiency below threshold if the converter indicating a faulty converter.
  • Low fuel pressure caused by a clogged filter, failing fuel pump, failed fuel pressure regulator or clogged or leaking injectors.

Common Misdiagnoses

  1. Vehicle Speed Output Circuit Problem
  2. Cruise Control Servo Indicates Low Problem
  3. A/C System High Pressure High Temperature Problem
  4. PCM Stack Overrun Problem
  5. Transmission Control Module Reprogrammable Memory Problem

Repair Processes :

If the engine displays a miss and there wasn't a code, determine which cylinder is misfiring. If the exhaust manifold is visible, spay or pour a small amount of water on each cylinder exhaust port. Water will evaporate immediately on good cylinders and slowly on the missing cylinder. If this can't be accomplished pull the plugs and check the condition. If the scan tool has that capability, and the scan tool can operate the IMRC valves, then the problem is either resolved and a simple code clearing is all that's left or a new PCM would be called for. Look for damage to the tank indicating impact that may have damaged the fuel pump or sender.
