But I realized I should clear it when its in the 'on' position. The intake manifold flow control valve and variable valve timing work together to improve fuel economy, idle stability, and emissions. I actually turned on the engine and tried clearing the code and it said cleared. Repeat if spring is not returning to start position without jamming. Repeat many, many, many times until spring will work smoothly across whole range. I thought I was helping with the gas treatment but don't want to repeat if it is going to cause more problems.

These cars are not Fords, and the similarities are few. Thanks for all of the help; it was a life saver. Failure to follow these instructions may result in possible serious or fatal injury. After running the car around the block the light went out and has run perfectly ever since. Above approximately 3000 rpm , the vacuum solenoid will be de-energized. The feel of the car feels good when i'm accelerating as of now unless i'm just tryna convince myself.
The bulletin covers some Avenger, Caliber, Sebring, Compass, and Patriot vehicles. Now all forum sites kept saying that the intake manifold needs replacing when the code is relating to the intake manifold control valve not the manifold code p2004 Simple fix for me was take the intake manifold sensor off and soak the sprung loaded slotted pin in wd40 over night using a pair of pliers to twist it a few times before its left over night and then again in the morning. I asked at the mechanics whether the intake manifold being stuck open was part of the ongoing problem or whether the Seafoam treatment might have caused some problems. It is usually a motorized or vacuum actuated unit attached to the intake manifold, that controls the opening and closing of butterfly valves inside of the intake manifold runners. The tumbling action helps ensure that the fuel and air mix thoroughly and burn faster. Could this be a faulty connector or wire harness? Turns out I had a crack in the vacuum hose attached to the Runner Control.
GeneAnna answered 8 months ago Well I am not doing it the right way. The Check Engine Light can also be set off by a wide variety of other issues, so having the computer. Search for any Technical Service Bulletins that may apply. Next they recommend I replace the intake manifold control valve. I'll check my car's birthday date tomorrow You're out of warranty, all you can hope for is the dealer taking some pity on you because it is a known problem.
Do you know if the part is expensive? He tended to lean toward the gas treatment causing a problem and loosening up some carbon deposits that might have gotten the runner control stuck. 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. This engine is unrelated to the 1995-2010 2. Unfortunately I could not turn the intake manifold flap shaft more than 10 degrees. You need to find a shop that qualified to repair the car. I had to replace the whole intake manifold and that did the trick. Put battery and engine covers on.
This is the latest in my quest to repair this car without spending a fortune. So I just cleared it and the engine light is gone now. So I sprayed wd40 on it and let it sit until it would turn by itself. The valve restricts air flow, causing it to tumble or swirl. Look for any chafed, pierced, pinched, or partially broken wires. I have a 2008 dodge avenger 2.
Measure the resistance of the K900 Sensor Ground circuit between the Short Runner Valve Assembly harness connector and the appropriate terminal of special tool 8815. It runs and drives as good as the day I drove it off the lot. There is a noticeable difference in how it runs but it didn't clear the engine code. Are the butterflies in the manifold actually stuck in an open position? However, the engine light is still on. Then drive it for a couple of days and hope the computer resets and the engine light turns off.
Where is this part located on a 2009 Dodge Journey? I'm new to this forum and I'm hoping I can get some advice from some experts. 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. Disconnect the Short Runner Valve Assembly connector. 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. Please can someone answer that questions and with pictures would be awesome!!! Connect engine plug and secure it with orange switch. I sprayed it directly into the throttle body.
If this will work, does anyone happen to know what time frame I'm looking at for example, disconnect battery for 15 minutes and drive for 50 miles? Apparently since the Avenger was re-introduced in 2008, Ma Mopar got a very early start on production and rollout; 2008 models hit the showroom floor as early as Feb 2007. Do I need to do anything else as I try to turn this tab? The intake manifold runner shaft should rotate about 30 degrees smoothly. Repeat many, many, many times until spring will work smoothly across whole range. Turn car key to ignition position but do not start the engine. Always run tier one gasoline like Shell or Chevron to reduce the buidup of deposits. Engine misfires and decrease in power, acceleration, and fuel economy Another symptom of a potential issue with the intake manifold runner control is engine performance issues. Always perform the Pre-Diagnostic Troubleshooting procedure before proceeding.
