    If it is the intake manifold flap or anti-shudder valve, than you have to change it. It can't be repaired and the EML won't go away.
    You can do fine with that flap broken but in case of turbo failure, when the oil will get into the intake and into the engine, you won't be able to shut it off and will get ruined.
    That valve helps shut off the engine smoothly and to shut it off when goes on oil.

    Also you should check the fuses. Ussually when the valve brakes it also buns one or two fuses. I don't remember which ones.
