p2004 (Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open)You need to take a look at the IMRC actuators on the intake manifold. You can try using a screwdriver or other tool to move the actuators to see if one is stuck in the open position. Do not use your fingers to do this, because if one is open and decides to close it has a bit of force behind it and can injure you. If the IMRC is stuck open, it is usually due to deposits in the intake manifold. Repair involves removing the upper intake manifold and cleaning out any deposits in the IMRC plate area. I would try running some Techron Concentrate in 2 tanks of gas to see if it dissolves enough of the gunk on the plates to free up the stuck one. Certainly a lot cheaper than having to pull the intake manifold and cleaning the plates. Always run tier one gasoline like Shell or Chevron to reduce the buidup of deposits.

2003 ford focus 2.3 litre DTC P2004 intake manifold runner control stuck open. What does it mean when it says shorted to VREF or signal circuit shorted open or shorted to VPWR.


code p 2004 refers to intake manifold air control actuator bank 1--actuator stuck open===causes --wiring--intake manifold air control actuator---mechanical fault
it also refers to intake manifold air control solenoid bank 1--solenoid stuck open=== causes --wiring---intake manifold air control solenoid---mechanical fault
reference auto data technical fault codes
I cannot find reference to the VREF or VPWR as they may be referenced in a ford workshop manual so you may have to ask a ford service person what they stand for but I suspect that they will come back to the same thing as listed in the causes

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

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.
