On a Duratec it's related to the IMRC thingy that opens your secondaries not working right. The post I found on the net about it in his case was being caused by a short not letting the secondaries ever close. I don't know how to check it so you will have to wait until someone with more experience on this matter comes by. Just thought I'd chime in on what I know.

According to my source, the actual code means "Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open (Bank 1)". Can't give any more details than that.

Here's my source: http://home.indy.net/~stang/pics/schems/obdII_codes.pdf

Hope this help for others on the board to better help you out.
