Having problems with your 1998 Ford Windstar ?
P1537 - 1998 Ford Windstar
This is a common problem there are two motors on the front of the intake(same side the belt is on ) that open and close extra ports the plastic retainers that hold the linkage to the motor and the arm break causing the linkage to fall off, this turns the eng light on, the dealer sells the plastic retainers, they are called intake manifold runner linkage retainers, hope this is helpful.
The Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) is a system which uses dual intake runners to supply air to each cylinder. The secondary runners are normally closed, but the PCM opens them under high rpm conditions when the driver is demanding additional power from the engine. The IMRC system can be actuated using a single electric motor or dual vacuum motors. The IMRC system is functionally checked by monitoring the runner control plates using switches. If the actual position of the runner control plates does not match the commanded position, a malfunction of the IMRC system is indicated.
