    Default Swirl Flaps??

    My car is in at the garage today as I have had the orange spanner light flash up a few times and also the exhaust emissions light.
    The garage has told me the code reader is coming up with a swirl flap fault and they are unable to fix this error. They have reset the codes and are going to try investigate further for me.
    What exactly is this and is it going to cost me big money to get it done at the dealers.
    I live near middlesbrough, is there any garages here that can sort this out for me?
    HELP!!!!!!!

    Could be the actuator which may need new intake manifold and swirl valve as the actuators are 'paired' to learn with the engine. My bro in law just had this done on his 1.9 and cost him around £750 as they sometimes replace egr as well. HTH

    edit: search the site for swirl valve (and be prepared for some long reading as many members have had this common problem)
