Got half my engine apart, Question about the IMRC!!!

I posted in recent thread that my check engine light was turning on because of my IMRC, the advice I got was to clean it and we did both of them, but what I am wondering is does the imrc box itself necessarily have to be replaced to fix the problem(the small box connected to the lower intake)? I know a bad 02 sensor can throw the code as well so I can't rule that out at this time either. But I am wondering if we just cleaned everything and put the engine back together if it will solve the problem, or do I wait and just purchase a new module and install it the middle of the week? In other words does cleaning commonly solve the problem?

Any advice and or scenarios is GREATLY appreciated, I assure you my upper and lower intake are sitting on the garage floor!
