Hello, First the Service light has to be cleared from the computer by a scanner or by disconnecting the NEG battery cable for 10 minutes. The scanner is a better idea because some radios and antithefts can act up when the NEG connection is open.

If you still have a problem and have the 3.8L V-6 engine for the 2001 year model this engine did not use a manifold runner in a conventional way. The code means on your model, that a plastic part on a runner actuator probably broke and the rod underneath is loose. There is also a repair program for your DPFE which carries a Ford Repair Program number 02m01 and its free. Ask for an OASIS test at a Dealer.

The V-8 models and in later years used a dual channel intake for each cylinder. One part is a constant velocity port and the other channel opens up above 3000RPM. If you have a V-8, get new gaskets, choke cleaner and remove the Intake to clean the runner plates. The plates can stick if they are dirty.

I hope you find my solution very helpful.

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)

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.

Obd 2 code reads p 15 18. There is no code number to relate to the problem. Do you have the answer? [ check engine light on 1999 ford taurus]


code p1518= intake manifold runner control (IMRC) malfunction (stuck open)

the intake manifold has two runners per cylinder, feeding each of the cylinder heads
the IMRC assemblies are located between the intake manifold and two air passages for each cylinder.
one air passage is always open and the other passage switches from means of a valve plate.
below 3000 rpm, this valve plate is closed to improve low speed performance.
above 3000 rpm, this valve plate opens to improve high-speed exceleration.
the valve plates are opened and closed by the IMRC deactivation by the powertrain control module
(pcm) if your car or truck is not affected by the error code, the pcm may need to be reprogrammed
so that the error does not come up again. or you can connect an obd2 scanner and reset ever y time
it comes up. good luck!

you need to make sure that the control solenoid has vacuum and power and ground at the connector, or it will set that code. as long as you did not drop the plenum would should be fine, locate the control solenoid you should be fine
