Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 31+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

When this engine has codes for the short runner valve, replacing ONLY the short runner valve actuator usually doesn't solve the problem. To fix this concern you MUST replace the ENTIRE Intake Manifold assembly. The problem is normally internal to the manifold and replacing the complete intake manifold is what must be done to successfully solve the problem and get the lght to go out.

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert

i replaced a lot of internal parts from a 2008 dodge avenger manifold. it did not have a short runner valve on it but the place where it goes was there. they evidently did away with the short runner valve. i did replace the fuel injector rail, fuel injectors, as well and a new rubber gasket i took off the 2008 dodge avenger manifold.
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

unfortunately since yours was originally equipped with the srv, you have no choice but to replace the intake manifold with a "New" one. If you purchase a used manifold that does have the srv, it will MOST LIKELY have the same problem as your original one. If I'm corrrect, the new intake manifold assembly is a dealer item so you will need to purchase it from your local dealer or if you post the last 8 digits of the vin, I can get the part number for you so you can order it cheaper from one of the online mopar parts suppliers..

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
