    my EML light came on... so i took it to garage to hook it up for diagnostic check... which is showing that there is a swirl flap malfunction... the mechanic said he checked it, cleared the code and checked it again and it was ok, got it back the eml light back on... took it back same code, they reset it again and said if it comes back on... well have to take a manual look.... well its back on so im just wondering if some one can shed some light on what they are? hw much? hard job?

    the usual remedy is a replacement of part or all of the inlet manifold, this usually cures the problems with the swirl flaps on twinports. iirc it is around £700 to strip/replace/rebuild.
