Aug 2010   Check Engine light diagnosed as bad flap/motor in intake manifold. Parts replaced, but check engine light came back. Car immediately returned, dealer performed some adaptation procedures, but check engine light again illuminated. Car returned to shop after a new intake manifold that was ordered, arrived; however, the dealer could not finish the installation because dealer failed to order a few bolts that were also needed. Faulty intake manifold replaced along with two seals for injectors that came out when original manifold was taken out. Check engine light no longer comes on and driveabiliy improved, so I think this fixed the problem
