A vacuum leak can cause unmetered air to bypass the MAF resulting in a high idle. Check for any leaking/disconnected vacuum lines/hoses. Make sure the throttle cable is not binding/sticking if equipped with one

SOURCE: I have a '96 Ford Windstar 3.8L & getting OBDII P1537 code.

A common problem on Windstars, there are two IMRC valves, the only way to fix them is replacement, which is not that hard. They are mounted on the end of the intake manifold and control runner length. There is a front and rear one, I'm not sure which one this is but you'll probably have to go to Ford to buy it and they should be able to tell you with the code number. The problem will not affect driveability that much, but if you have emissions testing at your location, this will likely cause it to fail.

SOURCE: water leak under the intake manifold,1995 toyota 4 runner

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.

Intake Manifold Runner Control Circuit/open bank 1

Apr 13, 2015 | 2004 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

My freestar engine light is on OBD says PO171 what should be replaced


I believe this can be a bad O2 sensor error. It is a lean reading on bank 1. Also what can happen are intake manifold leaks, and stuck Intake manifold runners on 1 side of the engine. For the Manifold runners, these work like a gating system. Some Intake manifolds have 2 chambers, a low and high flow. When the gating runner sticks in the high flow position, too much air enters the engine on Bank 1 during idle or low rpm.
Manifold leaks. Use a spray water bottle and with the engine running, spray the seams of the manifold. A leak will change rpm or stall the engine.
Hope this helps you.

How to replace a intake plenum gasket


Well basically, you remove the intake plenum and replace the gasket and reinstall the plenum. Here are the steps:

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the remote jumper terminal located at the right strut tower.
2. Remove the air inlet resonator and tube.
3. Remove the throttle actuator cables from the throttle arm and bracket.
4. Disconnect Secondary Runner Valve (SRV), Manifold Tuning Valve (MTV), Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), Idle Air Control (IAC) motor electrical connectors.
5. Remove the electrical connector and the Intake Air Temperature/Manifold Absolute Pressure (TMAP) sensor.
6. Disconnect vacuum hoses from the Secondary Runner Valve (SRV) reservoir, Speed Control reservoir, and PCV.
7. Remove right and left intake manifold supports.
8. Remove support brackets at the intake manifold front corners and MTV.
9. Loosen upper fastener attaching throttle body to support bracket.
10. Remove clips attaching EGR tubes to intake manifold.
11. Remove intake manifold bolts and manifold
12. Remove old gaskets, Clean gasket surfaces, and install new gaskets.
13. Reverse steps to reinstall manifold

I have a 2006 Ford Freestar 48K miles, I just had an issue where my check engine light came on took it to AutoZone they put it on the machine it was a #2misfire got the spark plugs, wires and filter c


Find out if this air valve is considered an Emissions part. I would say it is not, but it depends on the effect on the emissions. If it is a covered part, the Emissions devices are Federally mandated to last a longer period of time and miles than the rest of the car.

The air valve is usually a different component than a throttle valve. The air valve is a part inside the air intake which changes the flow of air underneath the intake manifold. The throttle valve is a big flap on the top of the intake manifold which moves directly with the gas footpedal. The air valve operates automatically to change the air passages beneath the intake. The throttle valve changes the air opening from the air filter and is manually controlled by the footpeadal.

You might ask them if the engine has manifold "runners" and if it does, then that could be the problem. Ford had several problems with these runners. Also, I can't say if your design is a sandwich manifold, but the sandwich intake manifold had a gasket in the middle to join top and bottom and over time the gasket dissolved making a leak.

I would get a second opinion for this repair.

P2004 code


This code indicates Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open, Bank 1

Its hard to be very specific about a fix on this as there are a few potential fixes including the outright replacement of the intake manifold. If the Manifold Flow Valve blades are seized in the intake manifold, the manifold will have to be replaced
However this code can sometimes have a very easy fix and if you are lucky you may find that it is caused by a split vacuum hose connecting to the actuator. A leak in the vacuum system will set the code and I suggest you check this out first as a potential cause.

I think you got it all figured out.
Remove the IMRC Valve yourself,check it out for binding and any vacuum leaks as you said.
If Electronic,just install a new one.

apply a light force to the gas pedal and start the car continuing to regulate the rpms with gas pedal if you can make the car idle with the gas pedal then you will probably need a new idle air control valve
