Customer Question

I have an engine warning light, and when the diagnostic is plugged in I get errorcode P2015 - Intake Manifold runner Sensor. It is a 2012 Kia Ceed Deisel. Is there anything I can try before taking it to a garage ? Also, would be grateful if you could tell me where the sensor is located.
Many thanks

Hi .
Possible causes.
Faulty Intake Manifold Runner Position Sensor/Switch.
Intake Manifold Runner Position Sensor/Switch harness is open or shorted.
Intake Manifold Runner Position Sensor/Switch circuit poor electrical connection.
In the intake manifold you have four flaps for each cylinder , these are known to get carboned up with gunk and cause the flaps to get hard to move ,this will cause the ECM to trip this code ,also if the linkage comes lose or is too much play in the linkage this will trip this code .
In many case the upper manifolds has to be replaced due to to much play in the flaps in the manifold .
