Just fixed mine over the weekend. Raise the hood and look at the left side of the intake manifold just above the belt. A small black box with 2 rods connected to it, one rod to each side of the manifold. The rods are only 3 or 4 inchs long. Make sure the wire connector is plugged into the box and if you look at the back of the box where the rods are supposed to attach, that arm should move when the key is turned on. Watch for this as someone gets in and turns the key. DO NOT START the engine while you are watching for this. Just key on, engine off. There are little white plastic clips that attach these rods to the box and the manifold. They get brittle from the engine heat, break or otherwise fall apart, and the rod falls out, a common problem with this engine.
imrc cost aprox. $ 226.00 you can do it , takes aprox . one hour to reemplaced.
is located at left side of the engine abocve the belt has only 3 bolts.
