2006 Ford Fusion 4 cyl.Engine light is on.Did diagnostic scan and it read P2004 Intake manifold runner bank 1a. There are 2 of these but dont know which one is bank 1a.

On a 2006 Ford Fusion with the 4 cylinder, there will only be one IMRC actuator. The V6 model has two. There is a solenoid and an actuator. You should check both of these for proper operation. The solenoid should click when it receives power and ground, and it controls vacuum to the actuator. The actuator should move when you apply or remove vacuum.
Also, when testing the actuator, it often takes more vacuum than you can produce with your mouth, so that is not an accurate test.

P0128 code on 2006 ford fusion. add coolant or replace thermostat?

Your vehicle needs a thermostat. It is a pretty simple repair. Its under the left side of the intake manifold. You have to get one of the bolts from the bottom and the other two from the top.

How do you fix a P0128 code on a 2006 Ford Fusion?

Upstream HO2S Sensors Swapped or this one
P0128....Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature) now if this a 2006 model built for the europeon market then your code reader is a waste of time as it will never read the correct codes and if your really lucky it could lock up the immobilisor as well this is to prevent general garages from doing any repairs so just take it back to a ford garage

Code P0128 ford, fusion 2006 4 cly

I had the same code. It means your engine coolant temp. is too low. That means your thermostat needs to be changed. Get the Ford Motorcraft one. It comes with the entire housing. Have a mechanic replace it. It is a real bugger to get to.
