      P2076 IMT Valve Position Sensor

      Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I have a 2006 Aveo LS with 166k miles. I got a “pending” check engine light for P2076 IMT Valve Position Sensor. I reset the light but I’m sure it’ll come back because my car likes having sensors replaced. I used the FIXD app to scan the code. Does anyone have any advice?

      Essentially I’m confused because Googling this part brings up a lot of “runner control valves”. Is that the same thing as the IMT Valve sensor? RockAuto also lists three separate parts under the “runner control valve”, adding to my confusion.

      I would really appreciate any help in understanding what this all means. I’m not very knowledgeable on cars but if it can be fixed at home, I’d like to do that.

      What the P2076 code means is that the sensor is not fully actuating. It could be from a bad sensor, bad wiring, or the runners in the intake are binding. I’d remove the sensor and see of the runners rotate fully. If the do, good. Check into a bad sensor or wiring. If the runners won’t rotate fully, I’d look into a bad intake.
      For the sensor look on yours for a GM part number to compare to the options available.
