I got these 2 codes and i read on here before stuff but it doesn't really help.

Anyone have any ideas
Secondary Air System (Bank 1 and 2)


Would replacing the secondary air pump do the job? Or should i just leave it...

not necessarily
there are multiple components at work.
*a vacuum valve near a cylinder 6.
*SAI valve which is activated my vacuum
*Pump itself
*relay to start the pump

There a a number of outcomes at play.

My suggestion check the houses first. They may look ok, but could be at desecrating point. Losing vacuum will cause the valve to remain shut, not letting the air from the pump. resoling in P codes.

Good luck

always check your houses first. they sometimes move at night which can be very confusing.

I was trying to help diagnose this issue last night on the OP's car.

Noticed a leak in the pump itself. Air was blasting out of the side where it is riveted together.
