  • Diminished fuel efficiency
Place of P0085 in engine

Possible Causes :

  • Faulty IMRC actuator/sensor
  • A large vacuum leak would cause a massive amount of un-metered air to enter the intake manifold resulting in an overly lean mixture.
  • An air leak forward of the DPF will change the sensor readings resulting in the code

Common Misdiagnoses

  1. TP Sensor Learn Not Complete Problem
  2. Low Coolant Circuit Problem
  3. Cruise Control System - Vehicle Accel Too High Problem
  4. TFP Valve Position Switch-Drive Without Drive Ratio Problem
  5. Problem

Repair Processes :

If the scan tool has that capability, and the scan tool can operate the IMRC valves, then the problem is either resolved and a simple code clearing is all that's left or a new PCM would be called for. Look for damage to the tank indicating impact that may have damaged the fuel pump or sender.
