Customer Question
It’s giving me engine...

It’s giving me engine code p2006 and p0170

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

It’s the exact code, no I havnt. The guy at auto parts store that did scan said he could not reset it it’s their policy

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Kia?

2011 sorrento

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I was going to try to. I havnt done anything yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It’s running ok, but it’s giving me all the symptoms of the intake runner actuator that’s not working. From what I’ve read anyway
