      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Focus ST 170
  1. ST170 IMRC stuck Open

    I too am having the same problem. DTC code P1518 has come on twice, which i have cleared with my code reader. I have checked the plastic 'dsi' clip/lever which the cable from the IMRC connects to and thats still intact. So... from what i have learned from different forums is that maybe the IMRC control box is knackered, the spring which closes it on the manifold is knackered or the butterfly valves in the manifold itself have given up (hopefully not cos it'll be expensive) Is there a sensor that reports whether the valve is stuck open or closed on the maifold, or is it part of the IMRC control box reporting on how far the cable is in or out?
