This is not as bad as one would think. More than likely a plastic actautor broke...this one dude sells metal ones for like $20. You can get a good mechanic (my Mexis guys can) that knows how to get out the intake manifold for under $500. What I did was kinda ghetto but it did the job got a thin metal wire to keep open the actuators. The check engine light turns off but when I rev it it sometimes turns on but then goes off again. Luxgovisual.com if any questions or need some cool art :)

Both of those codes relate to the intake maifold tuning valve (IMT).

It probably needs replaced and properly adjusted

2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 kompressor warning gauge Battery / Alternator needs to be service.


check your volt gauge on the dash. if it's working properly, then your car is throwing a bad code. if the battery looks as though it's taking more than 14 volts, or less than 10, you have a problem.

I have a 2005 F150, that has been running a little rough and the check engine light came on. Checked the code and it read 0305. I'm not sure what I should do next.


trouble code 0305 is for cylinder misfire. misfire code for cylinder #5 which is what a P0305 code represents. There will have leaking valve cover gaskets allowing oil to contact the boots of the ignition wires and short the high voltage to ground causing the misfire.in this case check whether plug wires, sparkplugs and valve cover gaskets are in good shape .this will help you to determine the cause of your check engine light on. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My 2004 Ford Focus SE has two warning lights on. One light looks like an engine, the 2nd light is a circle with an ! in the center. No owners manual with the vehicle. I've checked oil, coolant etc.,


The one that looks like an engine is your 'check engine light' you will need to have your vehicle scanned for codes to find out why the light is on. Some shops will even do this for free or at a reasonable fee. The second one you describe sounds like a tire pressure warning light. Check all your tire pressures and make sure they're inflated to manufacturers recomended pressure. Hope that helps.
