What happens if I don't replace my air pump?


Asked by Sam Jun 18, 2014 at 11:15 AM about the 2002 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My check engine light came on in my 2002 Saturn SL and the P0410 code is what it
kicked out. It looks like my air pump no longer works. It is an old car and I'm wondering
what happens if I don't replace the air pump? Will it ruin my engine, or am I ok to not
replace my air pump? Thanks.

We do have emissions tests. Is that the only reason to have a working air pump? Will not having one hurt my car?
