If you dont have the SVT Intake manifold you dont have to worry about it..

DSI Problem unsolved

Hello guys, please help me, i have reconnected the DSI clip and have cleared the error code, but the engine management light has come back on and it still makes the noise for the first 4 or 5 seconds when i turn my car on, after that everything runs fine, other then having the engine management light on.
Cheers

to FF.com!!!

your IMRC may be toast. if you are hearing the "whirring" sound on startup, im betting thats it.
its an easy fix. but will cost ya a bit more than the clip. i believe it goes for @ $75 US

Imrc?

Getting the P1518. Clip is good, and the cable actuates when I start it up and at 5-6k RPM. Sluggish low end & terrible MPG. Have started to notice at a long time idling the RPM's will dive for a split sec then jump to around 2-3k, then slowly come down. Tonight I saw the cable actuate when this happens. Just double checking before I order the IMRC. My best conclusion from all of your folks great info here, is that my IMRC is spazzing out. You guys agree?

personal opinion about using the CFM DSI clip that is aluminum. I would be worried about what may break instead of the clip. I would rather replace a 17 dollar part every 80k miles than find out the motor is stron enough to break something else more expensive. Could even break the motor itself if its to strong. Happened alot on the Jeep cherokees around 2002 or so.
