Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

The swirl valve's position is monitored by a switch. When the PCM commands the valve to move and it doesn't see the switch state change then this code sets. If you've replaced the solenoid then either the valve is physically stuck, the switch is bad, the actuator is bad, or there may be a switch wiring issue. You can try moving the valve by hand to see if it is physically stuck. If not then you can move it while watching for the switch state to change on a scan tool. If it does not then the switch wiring can be tested to determine if the problem is a bad switch or a wiring problem. There is a good chance that the valve itself is stuck.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
