Default 2.3 IMRC valve

so i got the code, not sure what the number is exactly but it says "intake manifold runner control stuck open" might not be exact words but p.d. close. i checked the little valve that has the vacuum lines everyone says to check for cracked or broken lines. found one crack in a line, cut it out and fixed that... code is still showing. i found no other breaks in the lines. is there a way to check if the valve is bad? a way to clean it? do i need to keep following the vacuum lines as far as i can?
