P2004 is intake manifold runner stuck open control bank 1. This code should be related to your EVAP system. Did you try resetting the ECM and then the light came back on? If so, did you look at the readiness status? After driving the car awhile different systems should have come out of default and one should have been listed "not complete". Which one was it?
Start by looking for pinched or broken vacuum lines, oil dip-stick not in place or oil fill-cap missing, maybe a missing or defective gas-cap. Anything further would take the use of special tools and a look at live data, to hopefully narrow this down. Good luck.

    To add to yesterdays solution I would like to add that this DTC is set when the IMRC is commanded closed, but the IMRC monitor indicates open. This DTC replaces P1518 and P1537.
    Possible causes:
    IMRC Monitor Signal Circuit Shorted to PWR GRD or Signal returt.
    Damaged IMRC actuator or Solinoid blocked vacuum hoses.
    Diagnostic aids:
    IMRC pid reading near 1 volt at closed throttle may indicate a fault.
    Hope that helps.

    i had my engin light come on on 04 focus P2004 Control manifold runner stuck open on bank one so looking at engine from left to right i seen the 4 intake ports right there going from left to right and on top of 1 and 2 theres something with vacume hose on it and on top of 3 4 was the same thing so i figured the one on left would be the bank one so i puled off the vac hose while car wasnt running and air escaped than put hose back on than feeling in the back of this controll there was this black knob i was able to turn it back and forth and feel the valve open and close so i did that a few times hopeing to free it up from getting stuck open i than reset the computer and its been a month now and light gas not come back on hope this works for you like it did for me

2003 Ford Focus: Pulls Codes P0751, Shift Solenoid A, P2004 Control manifold runner stuck open, and P0752 Shift solenoid a circuit stuck on. I have changed the Solenoid A and my car still has a hard time shifting. It takes forever to get into 3rd or 4th gear and I have really high RPMs to get it to shift. Sometimes the Overdrive light will blink and then I have to pull over, turn car off and then turn back on to reset. I have been driving with Overdrive off to be able to drive the car. Any ideas on what to do next? Thinking about changing the IMRC actuator, but not sure how and where to start, any ideas?

Start car and check the pcv valve hose that comes from the intake manifold to the metal pipe under the coil. It will collapse and leak setting a code.

I literally just found the solution to this issue. Either make sure the fuel cap is on tight or, in my case, replace the fuel cap. I think it's due to either a lack of fuel pressure, or lack of pressure in the fuel tank. As soon as I replaced the cap, the car ran smooth and stopped the code from popping. I'm going to run the car for a quick drive, but since the P2004 code isn't popping up at startup, I think it's a sure bet it's not going to anymore.

Code p2004 saying intake manifold runner control sturck open. bank 1


code p 2004 has two references
intake manifold air control actuator , bank 1 --actuator stuck open====causes ---wiring---intake manifold air control actuator ---mechanical fault
second reference is
intake manifold air control solenoid , bank 1 --solenoid stuck open===causes ---wiring--intake manifold air control solenoid ---mechanical fault

No any codes will let you fail..Rangers are bad about the valve sticking..But first look on th driverside very back on the intake..Youll see a valve with two vacuum lines The one that goes on the bottom of the valve makes a 90 bend and is bad about breaking..If the lines are good then work the valve by hand and see if it will move

P2004 and P2017 check engine light on


P2004 The default position of the intake manifold runners is open. They are open when the car is not running. When you start the car, vacuum is applied to the actuators, and they close. Above a certain RPM they open.There are 2 of them. One for the front bank of cylinders, and one for the rear bank of cylinders. with the car OFF, you can try to move each one....and see if it moves. I'm not sure if this will help but.. http://v8sho.com/SHO/images/intake4.gif
