The problem: In affected vehicles with a 5.7-liter V-8, the engine control module may trigger a trouble code in the performance computer if debris or ice becomes lodged in the air-switching valve. If this occurs, the check-engine light could illuminate and the vehicle could enter fail-safe mode, reducing the vehicle’s power and speed and requiring immediate repair.
