Suggested Solution

the swirl flaps are located in the inlet manifold,there is a vacuum operated actuator bolted onto the manifold with an electric solenoid drawing vacuum which is located at the front of the car next to the radiator,these actuators can fail so check the vacuum pipes going to the actuator are fitted ok and not damaged,if you have to clean the swirl flaps properly you need to remove the inlet manifold which involves removing the timing belt and high pressure fuel pump for access which is a pretty involving task

From Vauxhall forum re. swill flaps



Field Remedy: 2065
Subject: Engine Z19DTH/ J - Intake manifold, swirl flaps, actuator out of order, DTC: P1109, P2075 set
Models: Engines: Option:
Vectra-C 2004...,Signum 2004...,Zafira-B 2005...,Astra-H 2004... Z19DTH,Z19DTH,Z19DTH,Z19DTH| Z19DTJ
Complaint: Customer complaint about lack of power and SVS lamp on. The following trouble codes might be set based on the installed application:a.) EDC16 C9 (2-actuator strategy, i.e. pressure sensor as well as pressure regulator fitted at fuel rail) TECH 2 shows DTC: P1109 or sometimes P2279(11).b.) EDC16 C39 (1-actuator strategy, i.e. only pressure sensor fitted at fuel rail). TECH 2 shows DTC: P2075.
Cause: Problem might be caused due to sticking swirl flap or due to malfunction from swirl flap actuator.
Production: Several modifications introduced since SOP. Latest improvement was a design change at the swirl flaps itself in order to make the flaps more robust and to prevent them from sticking. Engine-BP: Z19DTH17228334 (28.02.2007).

Remedy:
In case of customer complaint perform TECH 2 swirl flap actuator
test in order to evaluate the problem.
Recommendation:
Remove upper beauty cover in order to see the swirl flap linkage
mechanism. Switch on ignition (no need to start the engine) take
TECH 2 out of the vehicle to the engine bay. Change into swirl flap
actuator test and perform test. If linkage does not move at all but
the actuator motor itself is working (audible) it might be that:
--->>> either the internal actuator motor mechanism is faulty
--->>> or the pin ball from the actuator lever has come off, the
lever is bent or has just slipped off from the actuator joint.
In this case the actuator needs to be replaced.
Note: If the modified intake manifold (=swirl flaps) is already
installed please replace only the actuator.
In any other case it might be that the swirl flap linkage got stuck
during the actuator test or does not move completely from one end to
another. If this happens the intake manifold needs replacement together
with actuator.
The procedure for replacement of the intake manifold has been changed
and will be published on TIS 2000 as soon as possible. In Advance the
new procedure is given below in this document.
Working Procedure:

Note:
It is not necessary to disassemble the toothed belt.
Important:
When working on the fuel system it is essential to pay attention to
cleanliness as even the smallest dirt particles can lead to faults
in engine operation or in the fuel system. Open fuel connections
must be sealed with appropriate plugs from the Opel Parts Catalogue
