Intake Manifold choke diaphram for 98 ford windstar

My husband thinks we need to replace the intake manifold choke diaphram on our 98 Ford Windstar. I'm not sure if it's the right termiology, we've also heard it called an IRMC vacuum accuator. Anyway, we've price out this part, and it's outrageous! Is there any way to get around totally replacing these parts (there's two)?

My 98 ford windstar is displaying trouble codes p1537/p1538, along with a misfire on cylinder 1 & 2 (p0301/p0302). what are some problems that can cause this problem?


Codes p1537 and p 1538 are codes for a faulty IMRC valve. They are located on the lower intake manifold.

Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC), Vacuum Control
  1. Remove E-clip retaining vacuum control linkage to lever/shaft assembly.
  1. Remove adjustment screw from the vacuum control (9S514) and bracket.
  1. Remove two bolts retaining vacuum control and bracket to IMRC housing assembly.
  1. Disconnect linkage from the lever/shaft assembly and remove vacuum control .
  1. To install vacuum control and bracket assembly, reverse Removal procedure. Tighten retaining bolts to 8-11 Nm (71-97 lb-in). Adjust vacuum control as described.

As for the misfire codes, Check out the upper and lower intake gaskets. Since you have to take the upper intake off for the imrc valves its just a few more bolts to remove the lower intake. The intake gaskets are rubber seals. When the engine is cold the seals shrink and causes a misfire. when the engine warms up the seals expand and the misfire goes away.

I have a 98 ford windstar with check engine light on the codes are P1537, P1538, PO171 system to lean , and PO 174 what are they?


These are all related:
P1537 and P1538 are BOTH:
Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open
P0171 is Lean Bank #1
P0174 is Lean Bank #2.
On the front of the Intake Manifold there are Plastic Clips. The Clips are currently broken and need to be replaced. Because these are broke the Computer is registering too much Air or not enough Fuel = Lean.
You should be able to purchase these at any auto parts store (call ahead for availablility).
After you replace these, all the Codes should disappear.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have addtional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
