P1518 - Intake Manifold Runner Control Malfunction (Stuck Open) The IMRC system is monitored for failure during continuous, key ON engine OFF or key ON engine running self-test. The test fails when the signal on the monitor pin is less than an expected calibrated range at closed throttle. IMRC monitor signal circuit shorted to PWR GND or SIG RTN

Damaged IMRC actuator

Damaged PCM

An IMRCM PID reading approximately near 1 volt at closed throttle may indicate a fault

ok i found out wot the code means but could sumone explain this alot bette please as im totaly lost with this and what damage can be done and if its going to cost alot to fix.

cheers
