service engine code

my daughter has a 98 mercury sable. her service engine light is on and the code says the intake manifold runner stuck open.what does that involve and how costly is it. i just changed the transmission filter and fluid and had one hell of a time getting the filter to go on and stay on. she has been driving it for about a month with no light on and no problem. now does this mean a teardown? appreciate any input.

No, there is a vacuum runner control on the back of the intake manifold. Check it to see if it is stuck, broken vacuum line, bad diaphram etc.
