SOURCE: ford focus fault code p1246 is this an ecu fault

It's more than likely a wiring fault or an ECU fault - assuming this is one of the ECU controlled alternators. Check in this order 1 wiring 2 alternator 3 battery 4 ECM hope this helps

SOURCE: Code P1518 Intake manifold runner

There are some Electric Vacuum solenoids on top of the motor. They have vacuum lines running down to some manifold vacuum pods. When the solenoids stick, the vacuum does not shut off and the pods remain open.

You can check for electric continuity on the solenoids. If they check out, the internal parts may be stuck. You can disconnect the vacuum lines and see if one still has pressure when the engine is off. The solenoid that runs to it is probably open. You may be able to work some WD40 into the solenoids and free them up. If the solenoids have no continuity, they are bad but remeber to check them with and without vacuum.

Remember to reset the computer by disconnecting the NEG cable 10 minutes or the defect will falsely report 25 -35 Startups with the wrong info.

P0304 code and P1518 on 1997 ford escort and car will not start. Should I replace the actauator or get a diagnostic. Both butterfly pieces move by hand when taken off.

i'd have the codes cleared first of all as a stored code does'nt mean the problem is still there , it may have detected a fault with the intake manifold runner control but it may have been a tempory fault but once stored the ecu will think it is still there
