Ok how hard is it to remove the intake on a 2002 2.3. I need to free up the stuck intake manifold runner butterfly thingy...

If you want to do this because of the P2004 code, I suggest you check your vacuum hose coming off of the actuator.

Thanks! That fixed my issue! This video was also helpful showing the location of the actuator and where the hoses connect.


Hope this might help someone else.

If you do need to take off your intake manifold for some reason, here is the link to the photo-extravaganza I'm doing trying to fix the IMRC plug loss that is causing my vacuum problem.
