What Does the P1084 MINI Code Mean?

To operate effectively, a gasoline engine requires a specific air-fuel ratio (lambda), with the theoretical ratio being 14.7:1. However, different operating conditions, such as temperature or acceleration, necessitate a deviation from this ideal ratio, requiring adjustments through various facilities.
For maximum power output, a rich mixture is necessary during full-throttle operation. If lambda is less than 1, there is insufficient air, and the fuel-air mixture becomes rich. On the other hand, if lambda is greater than 1, there is excess air, and the mixture becomes lean, reducing fuel consumption and power output.
However, if lambda exceeds 1.3, the air-fuel mixture becomes difficult to ignite, and the engine no longer operates within safe limits. In practical applications, a lambda value of 0.9 to 1.1 has proven to be most favorable. If the engine needs to operate at a lambda value of 1, a fuel injection system with emission control will be necessary to ensure proper mixture preparation.
The electronic fuel injection system measures the engine's air intake and converts it into an electrical signal for evaluation by the DME control unit. Based on this signal and other parameters, the control unit calculates the fuel requirement and activates electromagnetic fuel injectors. These injectors intermittently inject fuel ahead of the cylinder inlet valves.
