    My Check Engine Light came on so I scanned it with a basic tool. ELM 327 (ebay bluetooth unit with an app on my phone) and got the code P1090.

    This is the description: P1090 Pre-Catalyst Fuel Trim Too Lean Bank 1


    1. Am I using the right obd2 scanner tool? I can't find this code to match any of the specific Ferrari code list's from this forum.
    2. If this is the correct code/description, has anyone had this before? What was the solution? Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    This code means that on the passenger side of the engine one or more of the cylinders is not getting enough fuel or too much air .. it can be a large vacuum leak, maf bad or bad fuel injection

    More anaylsis is needed

    Sis this just appear or was after an certain event ?

    It happened a few days ago after I put in a small bottle of octane booster, then drove it pretty hard. I'm not sure if that event is related or not.

    I reset the CEL a few times, but it immediately pops back on after restarting the car.

    First start with basic visual of engine bay... Any loose /disconnected hoses / bellows ) connectors

    Then start engine and try to listen for abnormal hissing /sucking noise .. also listen to area of exhaust header and see if got a large crack etc

    Always can listen to one side vs the other

    The next step is to get some reading from o2 sensors , maf sensor etc with a diag tool

    The code isn't quite right but is there the slightest chance that the gas cap is not correctly replaced as this is quite a common source of CEL 0n 430 ?

    I have it at the "Ferrari Doctor" in San Francisco, so I will let you know what they come up with.

    it ended up being the Mass Air Flow sensor. Got a new one, and it works perfectly.
