    Angry Corsa VXR Fault Code 2261

    Hi guys,

    Not long ago i put a K n N air filter on my car. A few days in it started making a loud chattering noise instead of the 'tssss' it had before. I took it off and a few days from then a fault came up (code:2261). It says recirculating solenoid valve or something. The car still makes a very faint chatter when changing gear. The fault light comes on and off and it does feel like the turbo hits in alot harder when the light is off. Does anybody know what this could be or has anyone else had this problem too? Any help would be great thanks!!!

    sounds like there is a problem with the recirc valve.

    the only reason the turbo would chatter is due to the high pressure trying to release air back through the turbo onto the fins/blades because the valve isn't releasing.

    maybe worth checking the recirc valve and vacuum line's.

    Default Hmm

    My mate who is a mechanic has checked the valve and the pipes and they are all good. He thinks something on/in the turbo may have a crack

    maybe worth removing the recirc valve and check for any blockage or seizure.

    the sign's your telling us is a common recirc valve failure not releasing air.

    Code reads as turbo charger by-pass valve (mechanical)
