Q: Trouble code P2015. I don't know how to fix it.

asked by on

The cel popped a p2015 code. Got it read and it's an intake manifold runner position sensor/switch circuit range/performance (bank 1). I don't know where to locate to fix or replace part.

My car has 70000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

The intake manifold runner control is a system that controls amount of air entering the engine, by way of valves in each intake manifold runner. They are linked together as 4 per side, bank 1 and bank 2. The control valve mounts to the back of the intake manifold and is commanded by the computer.

The P2015 code is to alert you that there is a physical malfunction of the manifold control. It could be an obstruction, but the most common cause is a broken clip that secures the linkage to the controller. Unless there is damage to the actual linkage, the clips can be obtained separately, if that is the actual problem.
