Description of DTC code P2014

The Intake Manifold Runner Position Sensor (IMRC) regulates the air intake speed through the manifold. Therefore, by increasing the airflow speed, the fuel is atomized so that more engine power can be obtained with the least amount of fuel. As a result, there will be a reduction in emissions.

When the P2014 OBDII diagnostic code is set, it is because the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) detected that the IMRC Sensor circuit has malfunctioned. This code shows that the problem is in bank 1.

Symptoms of fault code P2014

  • Check Engine light ON.
  • Misfiring.
  • Lack of engine power.
  • Lower fuel efficiency.

  • The IMRC Sensor is possibly defective.

Possible solutions of the DTC code P2014

Steps to troubleshoot the P2014 OBDII DTC:

  • Consult the Technical Service Bulletins.
  • Check the IMRC Sensor wires and their respective connectors. Verify that none are damaged due to burns or wear. Replace if necessary.
  • Perform tests of the voltage signals of the IMRC Sensor by using a DVOM. The result obtained should be compared with the manufacturer's specifications. Make any necessary repairs.
