Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
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.
