    Default HELP :) Fault code P2279 - Power train - Intake air system leak

    Hi all,

    Driving on the M1 today, suddenly lost power and whilst driving fast (70mph) didnt notice any issues, but going from stop to any speed, it took ages, like no power at all, again ok once at speed.

    Any ideas? I have the fault code: P2279 - Power train - Intake air system leak.

    I've looked at prevous posts, but can't find anything really related to my problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards.

    Check all the pipe work for splits and manifold for leaks

    Thanks Gents.

    The AA arrived, hit the EGR with a hammer a few times and the fault disappeared.... He kindly took the EGR valve off and cleaned it.
    All working corrctly again now.
    He did say that it was a common problem with Vectra's - LOL.
