There is a technical sevice bulletin for this exact issue. Go to the dealer and request they reprogram the pcm. You should not pay more than a half hour labor, they'll probably try to get a diagnosis fee out of you. Tell them no, just reprogram the pcm to latest calibration. If this doesn't fix it, then repost or pay to chat, but that should fix ya.

What are the probable causes of DTCs P2014 and P2016?


P2016 Intake Manifold Runner Position Sensor Switch Circuit Low Bank 1
P2014 - Intake Manifold Runner Position Sensor/Switch Circuit (Bank 1)
The IMRC system is monitored for failure during continuous or KOEO self-test. Each DTC distinguishes the corresponding failed bank for IMRC actuator assemblies with dual monitor switches. The test fails when the signal on the monitor pin is outside an expected calibrated range. This DTC replaces P1516.
  • IMRC monitor circuit open.
  • Mechanical concern - bind, seize, damage or obstruction of IMRC hardware.

Ford F140 4.2 Do Engine codes P0305, P0306, and P1518 relate to each other


I am assuming you mean F150 truck.
The answer is maybe.
Code 305 and 306 are missfire codes for cylinders 5 and 6.
Code 1518 is for a problem with the intake manifold runner control which could cause the other two codes.

P1518 FORD Description The Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) is monitored for failure during continuous or key ON engine OFF self-test.
Possible causes - Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) harness is open or shorted
- Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) actuator
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

PO661 Code for CR-V Honda 2002


Hi there:DTC P0661 - IMRC (intake manifold runner control) Valve Position Sensor Circuit Low Voltage

Possible causes include broken vacuum hose to IMRC valve, faulty IMRC position sensor, faulty IMRC control valve, or faulty ECM (engine control module).


It is usually the IMRC vacuum solenoid which gets stuck and causes the problem rather than the sensor itself. Hopefully, it stays off for you. BTW, the Honda service looks for intermittent failure on this DTC so unless the problem remains where the IMRC is stuck in the high-RPM (smaller intake length) after a reset of the ECU it will be assumed an intermittent failure.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Mil comes on with p2004/ check valve stuck open. Where is the check valve located


P2004 - Intake manifold runner control (IMRC) stuck open (bank 1)
Description - This DTC is set when the IMRC is commanded closed, but the IMRC monitor indicated open. This DTC replaces P1518 and P1537.

Probable causes - IMRC monitor signal circuit shorted to PWR GND or SIG RTN
- Damaged IMRC actuator or solenoid
- Blocked vacuum hoses

Diagnostic aids - Monitor the IMRC and IMRCM PIDs. The IMRCM state should change when the IMRC is commanded open or closed.

This control valve generally is located on the back of the intake.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

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.
