Dig P2004 states Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck. Is this a serious problem? Will I need to take to the Dodge dealership to be fixed. How much should this repair cost me?
The first thing is have the computer reprogrammed, the cost in our area is about $120.00 and yes you will want to have the dealership do this, and the will advise on if the other repairs will need to be done. If the manifold needs to be replaced cost is about $200.00 parts and labor is 2.6 hours
