    Default Swirl Flaps & Fuel Pump 2.2 Direct

    Hi!

    The emissions light came on in our 06 2.2 Direct last week. My sons friend put the car on their code reader but it showed no faults. The car was starting fine and would rev all the way up no problem.

    The problems started when the car was driven - Instantly the emissions light came on again and the car went into limp mode. it seemed the car was struggling under load.

    The garage took the car in on Monday and said they had a fault code which made them think it was the Swirl Flaps.

    Now the swirl flaps have been replaced the garage have called and said the Fuel pump has gone too.

    Is it likely that both had gone at once or are the garage just saying that because they have misdiagnosed the problem originally?

    Many thanks!

    Lorna

    Having similar problems with my 2.2 direct (04 reg).Got engine management light on (car & spanner light).Fault codes P1191 & P1112.
    Looks like a fuel pressure regulator but not certain.Had H.P Fuel Pump & Regulator replaced less than 3 years ago at my expense.

    Get some carb cleaner through it. It may help with the flap issue, it has in the past when they start to clog up.
