Post the 4 digit code to give us a clear indication on what you had checked. Typically it is a sensor or hose that connects to the intake manifold. The manifold itself is rarely the issue. If your not having driveability problems, you should be fine, the only thing you might notice is a decrease in MPG.

The intake manifold is where the air go's into the engine. Most likely it's a intake manifold gasket. The gasket is cheap. The labor isn't. But it should be done ASAP.
