    Default fault code p2279

    i have a warning light on, and my code reader came up with fault code p2279 intake system leak, i have read on other posts that this could be the egr valve, bur i only lately topped up my coolant bottle and i noticed that i did not fully tighten up the cap would this cause a warning light to appear.

    You have an inbalance in the vacuum system , check your vacuum hose connectors for splits or signs of perishing , also check the turbo hoses for splits

    well tightened the coolant bottle cap, still have a hissing noise above 2000 revs when below this the noise is gone, will look for split hoses 2morrow, i hope its not a leak in the intercooler, i have a spare egr valve will replace this to see if thats the prob, but dont know if the egr would cause a hissing noise above 2000 rpm

    Sounds like one of your intercooler hoses has a split in it
