Question about 2003 Ford Focus
Have a P2004 code, intake manifold runner control. Changed fuel rail pressure control. Code went away for a few miles but is back again. Now what should I do?
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.

on the passenger side of the engine you will see 2 small metal rods at the top of the engine just below the intake manifold there are little white clips that hold the rods on these clips usually break and the rods come off

LOOKING IN CODE BOOK.POSSIBLE CAUSE TO YOUR PROBLEM THE IMRC COULD BE STUCK OPEN.OR THE IMRC ACTUATOR IS DAMAGED OR HAS FAILED.ALSO THE IMRC MONITOR SIGNAL CIRCUIT COULD BE SHORTED TO POWER GROUND OR SHORTED TO SIGNAL GROUND RETURN.
