There is a rod passing through the intake manifold that rotates butterfly valves inside the ports. It is actuated by a lever on the end of the manifold that is moved by a small motor. The codes indicate that the actuator is not functioning or the rod is stuck from turning. Check the connector to the motor and the wiring. See if you can rotate the rod by hand.

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

Check engine light on, code is p2004, manifold runner or vac line leak. car runs fine can't pass emmission testing, where should we start to look first?

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.
