Code is P2279 intake system air leak detected and relates to either the EGR valve or the MAF sensor

Possibly could have packed in. Might be best to check the connections etc.

MAF sensor is the round plastic piece on the outlet of the airbox with the wire going to it (Y)

ok ill have a look at the sensor in my break if that doesn't work ill try cleaning the EGR again and if that doesn't work i think ill have to take it o vauxhall.

if i manage to sort the problem will the light and code disappear or do i need to get it cleared by vauxhall ?
