    Default P1109 Issue Sorted at last! Thanks everyone!

    Well after much research and headscratching / banging it against a brick wall, the error code has been sorted at long last.

    The Manifold was taken off this morning but was not blocked up as I first thought. The actuator for the swirls was then tested and was having intermittent errors and was refusing to work at high temperatures.

    This has been replaced free of charge and the manifold has also been cleaned out.

    Spoke to the trader at length and he has said if it fails again he will replace the manifold to prevent it happening again. Amazing what happens when you mention the words "Refund" and "trading Standards" in the same sentence!

    Thanks everyone for the guidance!

    Got the car back just after 7 - blast down the motorway for 20 miles to get it hot and then had a potter around town at commuting speeds. No faults thrown up and no limp mode which happened last time before the repair. Looking good so far!!

    Just thrown it on the code reader - no faults found and its looking even more promising. Hopefully it'll be fine now as I will look after this engine, unlike its last owner who apparently didnt!
