I fixed the DSI Clip and mine does the same thing on start up--I hear the actuator pull the cable 4-5 times then it stops and my check engine light comes on. The code is "Intake runner stuck open".

Does this mean the actuator is bad? When the clip first broke my wife drove the car with the actuator making noise for about 50 miles.
