Without knowing what car you have it gets difficult to be specific, however since usually p2008 is dealing with intake manifold runner control, and you have a high idle...Id say you may possibly have a loose or broken vacuum hose to runner control...with the vacuum off the runners cant be regulated...and the air leaking in through the bad/open hose will raise idle. check vacuum hoses and runner linikage

I have a 2007 jeep patriot. The check engine keeps coming on with the code p2008. Mechanic say fixed but check engine light keeps coming on and off. How do I fix problem

but you never scanned it the 2nd time, maybe the gas cap is loose.
p2 is jeep factory only code (unlike p0,1)
so only jeep books get this correct .
2007 MK Jeep it is.
is P2008 a rumor or did you see it with YOUR EYE and on what a real scan too?
P2008 Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) Solenoid Control Circuit

so what did he do? replace it , clean it? what?
if you clean it and it dont work, then its bad. replace it.
as for why the CEL glows now, you'd have to scan it again
mine has like 300 DTC's possible. so ID NEVER ASSUME its still P2008- not me , id scan it, any shop or store can scan it,
why wait, or guess or worry.?
or ask him to help, see if it is something new, or just the gas cap loose.

How do i fix it.
i dont know what you can do.... personally?
buy the FSM and read?
buy a scan tool and scan.
be clear as to all DTC thrown, and post them all.

check for fuses to the ECM
code p2008 refers to intakemanifold air control actuatoror solenoid bank 1---open circuit====causes wiring open circuit--intake manifold air control actuator/solenoid
IF the coil was melted , it is possible that the wiring for the p2008 fault is in the same harness and has burnt through causing the open circuit. or melted out in the connection causing the open circuit.

Had code po404 so changed the sensor, now code po406 is showing up and car idles extremely high. What is causing this and how to I fix it?


OBD Codes have nothing to do with changing parts

Codes are Parameters that are out of range

You check for codes & use them to diagnose the
system that set them & component test to find a problem

So--- Google your codes & read up


Your going to need a shop to find the issue

2001 dodge dakota sport with 2.5 engine idles high when I start it up, continues idling high, when pushing clutch in to change gears it idles extremely high

Does it do it if you disconnect the idle air control valve ?
You need to know if its a vac leak or if the computer is making the valve open too far.

Idle air control valve

Have the fault code read as it may be a throttle position sensor or idle speed sensor that is at fault.
