"1996 Lincoln mk VIII IMRC"


          

Please forgive my lack of experance on this site but I have a problem I feel only this group may solve ( problem) my galpal owns a 1996 mk VIII that ran fantastic up to when the check engine light came on, Im a very good mechanic and so I got the code reader and found the problem was an (intake manifold runner control bank-1 on passenger side), ok I say, go to the ford dealer, they tell me the part is NLS-1 which in auto speak means that the part is (no longer is service) they don't make it any more (WHAT??) and they say they don't have any in their parts system, the 4.6 runs great/ uses no oil and compression is terific on all 8 cylinders, the mk VIII has 109.000 miles and it is in exceptional shape, my problem is how can I fix this problem, any one know of a place I can get the part,I was told and find on the internet that its the only year this part came on??? car will not pass smog now

One thing you can do is to see if they are just stuck or the vacuum can is shot. Use a vacuum pump and draw 11" on it and see if it holds. If it won't hold a vacuum then you are going to need to search around for used IMRC actuators for your 96. Note that you will need this specific year as later years were different. Check the Lincoln sites as well as junk yards.

I just went thru all this a couple of months ago, and had a friend do the project for me by removing the intake and replacing the bad part as well as turning off the Egr system via the computer. I also replaced my throttle positioning sensor and IAC while it was apart

Some times you can get lucky if the shafts are sticky by using Seafoam to clean out some of the carbon build up around the plates.
