Intake Manifold Question

Hey,
So I'm sorry if this answer can be found here. My problem is I'm finding conflicting information. My check engine light came on after getting gas. Figured it was the gas cap, and after adjusting it and a few cycles it would go off. Nope.

My Jeep Patriot 08 is a bit over due for an oil change, so my husband brings it into the dealership. Now there's some confusion on this part, I thought the dealership said the issue was it needed an oil change, but apparently they didn't know the check engine light was on. I was told again that it had to cycle through.

So it's still on (this is going on 2 weeks) and we stop into AutoZone to use the meter, (I'm still thinking the dealership knew about the check engine light). The meter reads:

P2004 Mod 00
Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open Bank 1
Intake Manifold Runner Control Suck Open Bank 1 Pending

I have 81,000 miles, and the extended Warranty. I've seen people write that this part is covered, and I've seen people say this part is not covered. Any guidance? I want to walk into the dealership with some understanding.

If you have the extended warranty, then it should be covered as a normal engine system.

There are two parts to the system, the intake manifold with the mechanical flapper valves and the electronic sensor/motor that opens and closes them and also tells the computer their position.

The valves can stick in the intake manifold making the motor unable to open or close them or the motor/sensor can go bad. Either way it should be covered with the extended warranty.

With the lifetime power train warranty, I believe only the mechanical parts is covered as they wrap all of the electronics into the fuel and emissions category of systems.

Danaart-

Coverage could vary between "extended warranty" companies and plans. You could try calling them, but they might want to know the exact part needing replacement.

You might actually talk to the dealer about what might and might not be covered. Whether it's a Chrysler Group Service Contract or some other company, your dealer should be able to get some information from you.

There are a few items that could cause the code.
Besides various electrical issues, the issue might be:
MANIFOLD FLOW VALVE
INTAKE MANIFOLD
POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE (PCM)

I have a Chrysler lifetime bumper to bumper.

The dealership just said the intake valve is stuck open, and that they have to order the valve. It's $400 and not covered.

I have the lifetime powertrain warranty, and P2004 was covered under my warranty,
since you know the part and error code, can try calling different dealers see if its covered elsewhere.

The valve is integral to the intake manifold and is absolutely covered. Meaning they have to replace the whole manifold. Do not let then scam you.

I had been getting an intermittent P2017 for the last couple of months. I keep clearing it with my scanner until today where it goes away and immediately comes back even if the Jeep isn’t running.

I called a dealer and they said it wasn’t covered under emissions and most likely the motor burned out when it got stuck. He said he always changes the manifold and motor together.

You have to be careful with these dealers. I took my 09 to the dealer with 100,004 miles on it with two issues. First, the front end pops whenever I hit a bump, take a sharp turn, or accelerate or stop quickly. Second, the check engine light was on. For the front end, they said they couldn't find anything wrong, aka we get paid by the job and don't want to take the time and troubleshoot. The check engine light was for the intake manifold. I have both the lifetime power train, and the additional lifetime bumper to bumper lifetime. They called and told me my intake was replaced, and it would cost me the 100 deductible. So I printed up my power train warranty, highlighted where it said intake manifold was covered.

I showed up and they tried telling me I was wrong, and they'd pull up the warranty and show me. I said, no need, I already had it printed up. He agreed he made a mistake and took it off the bill. Then he said when my front end started getting worse and they could duplicate the problem that I should bring it back, but it would cost me 100 bucks. When I get a free weekend I'll jack it up, tie bright orange ribbons on probably the bad ball joint, and take it back so they don't have to waste their valuable time troubleshooting my problem.

Long story short, he would have charged me 100 bucks if I didn't question and prove he was wrong.
