Where is the IMRC on my ford focus SE (pictures)

Hi, I got an error code IMRC stuck open bank 1. Reading most of the post on this site, this seems to be a IMRC actuator or DSI lever problem. I can't find any of the above. I took pictures from the inside of the hood and was wondering if anybody can point out where the IMRC and DSI lever is. I also took a picture of a cable that seems to be loose (3rd picture) and was wondering if that could be part of the problem... Thanks

Yes, the duratec does have a imrc, but they are controlled by two solenoids right there on the top front of the manifold. You probably need a solenoid. PM me. That so called loose cable is your cruise control cable. Or you could need the control vacuum valve on the side of the intake.

Can you point out the location of the solenoids and the IMRC? Where would they be on the first picture? Which one controls bank1? (I took a picture where I thought they were but i can't attache images from my desktop, only from an URL...?)

Thanks

Theres two solenoids right there on top of the intake itself that have vacuum lines running to them. They should be located on top of #2 and #3 runners.

I just checked the vacuum lines that are going to the solenoids. One is coming from a part that is next to the vacuum controller on the picture you sent to me. If I press the lever down on this part, the line gets pressurizes. The other one is hidden under car and does not ressurize at all. I swapped the vacuum lines and the error code still remained at Bank1.

here are the two lines. Are they both supposed to be pressurized when running? What parts are they connected to?
