P200A Intake Manifold Runner Performance
The Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA) is used to adjust a valve (flap) in the intake runner for each cylinder. The valve does not close off the runner but restricts it in such a way to cause turbulence (swirl) in the air fuel mixture. The turbulence in the air will reduce emissions under cold start condition. The valve is operated by a worm gear type driver which doesn't open for limp home mode in the case of loss of current supply. (It doesn't have a return spring.) The system also has a Valve Position Sensor (VPS) to supply a feedback of the valve position to the PCM.

SOURCE: what is p200a my check engine light is on 2011

Hi there,

I think the code you are referring to is P0200.

This code means your vehicle computer (PCM) has identified an issue within the Fuel Injector circuit.

Possible causes for P0200 code are:

  • Open or shorted injector
  • Injector low internal resistance (basically an injector that works, but is out of specs)
  • Grounded driver circuit
  • Open driver circuit
  • Driver circuit shorted to voltage
  • Wiring harness intermittently shorting against underhood components

My 2011 Kia Forte check engine light is on, ran the code P200A Intake Manifold Performance Bank 1, engine is whining noise while stepping on and off the gas.Any ideas what this could be?

well kia has had this problem from day one ..........it is The Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA).. The Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA) is used for an adjustment of automotive flap and it is operated with two position, open and close. It makes swirl among intake air to reduce emission under cold start condition. This is worm gear driver type which doesn't guarantee restoring to limp home position in the case of loss of current supply. (This doesn't have mechanical return force due to no return spring.) DTC Description If PCM detects that the opened or closed stop position is out of the specified value, It sets P200A.

Code P200A kia sorento 2011

It's a fault code connected with the intake manifold.

However, before you rush off and change it, have a look on the Internet. It seems that Kia had problems with this particular error code/or the software. Read about it first. Here's some links:

Engine light came on code p200a

Intake manifold runner. Could be a dirty intake manifold, the sensor, the motor that controls it, or wiring. The runner are valves inside the manifold.

There is no code P200A so that provides no useful info.
