There is a way to bench test the actuator that can be figured out from studying the service manual. I think one of the wires is a common and two others are forward and reverse, As a dealer tech we can leave it connected to the engine harness, unbolt the actuator, and use the diagnostic software to test motor movement. This method tests the entire actuator system, EMM, relay, and actuator motor..

Thanks for the reply’s
it is off the motor right now a bench test would be best.seeing my EMM is not happy . Just want to make sure it’s ok before I put it back together and bring it to the dealer for the EMM.

Add a grease nipple to the valve. They can seize.

My actuator went bad. The problem was intermittent. My dealer tested the actuator with the software for 500 cycles. It failed to close on 3 occasions. After further investigation we found that it was not full closing each time. Lead to very poor low end power. New actuator fixed the problem.
