    Zafira B fault code p2279

    Hi
    Please can anyone offer some assistance on this one?
    I have the above fault code & was experiencing a lot of power loss under 2,000 rpm. I replaced the egr valve but the emissions light is still on. A mate then cleaned the vacuum / boost sensor & cleared the fault. After a test run the car was running great but the following day the car stammered once or twice at low revs & brought the same fault up.
    Would you recommend replacing the vacuum / boost sensor or is there something else causing this?
    Thank you.

      Have you checked the swirl flap rod is still in place.

      If you take the plastic engine cover off you can see it towards the top of the engine.
