First clear codes then retest drive the car and then recheck for codes .

The P0100 is your MAF sensor this could be your problem OR it was just disconnected and set the code .

If comes back clean MAF and try again if cleaning not successful replace . just this will cut down the engine power and

not let you rev above 3500 rpm (In neutral this is normal).

Get from your local parts store a can of MAF spray cleaner and clean the MAF with this, as said no improvement replace maf.

P1590 - Vacuum Solenoid Valve Circuit High Voltage.

Take care of the P0100 code first then retest drive after repairs to the MAF if code comes back for the P1590 let me know .

Hi Greg.
New MAF fitted do you think fault code can be generated by a broken wire / bad connection at plug..
P1590 code from reading on the vauxhall opel forum this can be caused by a vacuum solenoid do you think we have two seperate faults here.
UK Auto Mechanic: Greg, Shop Owner replied 2 years ago

Yes its very possible , did you clear codes and the two came back even after replacing the MAF .

If yes then check the wiring harness for a short .

If wiring is okay could be a possible ECU malfunction .

Do you have a Multi-meter to do some testing .
