IDM Conformation

I think my IDM is bad i get kind of bad fuel mileage and our code scanner says IDM fault code. So i cant tell from reading whether i need a specific IDM, just the same voltage IDM (i guess like 100, 120, or 140), or if any 99-03 IDM or even any IDM at all. I want to save some money and get an IDM from the junkyard and trying to make sure it will work. Thanks with any help!!

I would think if you had a bad idm it would not run. The map sensor and ebp sensor/ tube should be the things I would look at first
The ebp tube clogges up with soot and the sensor gets no reading or a lower reading.
If the map sensor is no reading properly could be a loose harness, vacum leak or bad sensor.

Exactly what code did you get? P_ _ _ _??

I would start with the EBP sensor/tube as well, if the IDM is bad, it won't run.

Thanks for the ideas everybody. I tried to clean the EBP tube and the fitting is to tight that i will probably would have broke it. I put some blaster on there and letting it sit for a while. I still got to try the Map sensor. I was just going to get an IDM from the junkyard which will probably be real cheap from my local yard thats why i was wondering if any one would work cause they only have one 7.3 in there.
