Default Threw a code P065E today.

Tonight the CEL came on and I had it checked out, the code that came up was P065E, the intake manifold valve, I believe. The car has not been acting up lately other than the fuel mileage is a little low on the highway (28-30 MPG). But then again the last couple fill ups it has been cold, really cold, like 10 - 15 degrees F for daily highs. Today it was 38 F and snow then lots of rain. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

No responses to my Post? Whatever, I will just wait for the engine to blow up, which probably won't be long. I am convinced that these are not very good cars.

Relax! Enjoy! These are really Good Engines. I drove my Astra with that code for over a year until I had to pass me e-test. How I solved my problem was buy taking apart the intake manifold and pulling the valve and cleaning the valve with MAF cleaner. 30k later and the code has not come back. Big job for an armature like myself but the dealer Wanted 2200 so I gave it a roll. Got the idea of just cleaning the whole intake system from a few Brits who kept telling me that it was an unheard of code on the Vauxhalls"...if u r in the GTA I CAN GIVE U A HAND. OTHERWISE DRIVE IT. IT WILL B OK

I'd try cleaning the throttle body. Do a search here, but it's easy to do without removing anything except the air intake pipes and the MAF sensor. I forced my valve open and cleaned the inside with throttle body cleaner on a rag. I was getting a P1101 error, but my reader would also often indicate a pending P065 code as well. Then reset the code and see if it comes back.

Sorry for the slow response... Not to many people around here anymore it seems.

Ditto for me as well, thanks to people on this forum. Worked like a charm to clear up P1101 and another pending code, I forget exactly which one. I had that code for a year and a half and tried numerous things, and was about to dump hundreds into parts and/or service as my emmisions test was coming up. In the end it cost $10 for the can of throttle body cleaner.
