    Hello , I have the spanner light on my dashboard. I had a diagnostic test done to the car and it stated that the car had glow plugs issue. I have had the glow plugs changed and the diesel filter filter. Engine sounds a lot better and it feels better when driving however the spanner light is...

    Hi all, My Corsa D 1.3 CDTI (2008) makes a rattling noise between 1100-1300 RPM as I accelerate then it goes away and comes back when I drop back down to those revs. When it is a cold start, it is at its worst. When the car warms up it won't be as loud and doesn't seem to rattle too much...

    Hi guys, I was checking the oil level in my engine when I noticed that the pipe where the dipstick goes in was loose and it was moving around. I quickly realized the missing screw but there was something else, too. I also noticed that this pipe got loose at both ends, so not just where the...

    I was travelling on a dual carriageway at 70mph when the car started slowing down and behaved like it was in neutral (was still in 5th). I tried taking it out of gear and putting it back in 5th and I tried 4th gear but it made no difference. I rolled into a lay-by and tried moving in 1st gear...

    Hi guys, I posted a similar thread yesterday but wanted to start a fresh one with more complete info. So - a while ago I had the engine management light come on, took it to mechanic, changed sensors, not long later light reappeared, took it back he tried again same thing etc. He advised a few...

    Hi guys I've got an 09 plate Corsa Life D which has had an engine management light on for a while now. Initially it wasn't a 'problem' and we took it to a mechanic who we know and he recommended changing some sensors (possible lambda? I will pay close attention in future!) and he did so and...

    Hi All, New to this forum and looking for some suggestion/advice as I've exhausted all avenues I can think off. Got my first corsa a couple of month ago and been generally happy with it. Did the usual full service on it myself when I got it for piece of mind. It's now around 40k on the...

    Hi, I bought my car from new towards the end of 09 and it's beginning to feel like a Friday car, many things are going wrong with it. I seem recently to be having an issue with the car stalling, and from what i can tell it seems to mainly happen once it's been going for a while (hot) and then...

    Only had my 13 plate corsa for 2 weeks and it has come up with the engine management light on the dashboard. Thing is I was just sitting at some traffic lights when it came on so it was nothing of my own fault? I have had a look online and tried to do the pedal diagnostics test but when I try...

    Hi guys, I have a Corsa C 1.0l 3 cylinder engine. Every morning for about 2 months now when i start the engine cold there is a horrid rattling noise come from engine but after like 5/10 seconds it goes away. My oil level is full. What could this be? Should I be worried. Ever since owning the...

    Hi All, new to this thread so forgive my ignorance but my problem is that I have a Corsa C twinport 1.0 engine which has completely seized. I was wondering if I could replace it with a non twinport engine i.e z10ex or equivalent. If so what are the pros and cons. Look forward to hearing from...

    Hi guys this issue has been niggling at me for some time now, mainly because I can't do a simple motorway journey without needing to stock up on new bottles engine oil! My car is a 1.0 Corsa C Ecotec (2001) and I have noticed ridiculous oil consumption, I am talking 3 litres every 450-550...

    Hi guys! need to do an overhaul on my engine so... Shall I just drain everything then remove every tube and try and slip it out the top? Has anyone got any jacks, engine stands to recommend and cranes? I've only got a jack that goes to 35 cm but I believe I need one to go as high as 65 cm...

    Had a problem for about 4 months where my hydraulic lifters (I think) just make an irritating tapping noise every now and then after high revs, well one does. It's slowly getting a little more often and it's beginning to annoy me. Noise is more apparent when my engine/oil is warm (90oc) Put...

    Hi all, My mum just bought a 08reg Corsa Breeze and after a couple of days the ECM light has come on. She is a very slow driver, but did feel that the car needed a lot of acceleration to move. In my opinion, it is seriously under performing and it doesn't sound fantastic. I know its only a 1...

    Recently what I think is one of the hydraulic lifters has been ticking over loudly for ages, sometimes it stops but when the engines warn you can hear it well. and if I've been down the motorway it sounds like a diesel afterwards. Oil has Been changed making it appear a little less but it's...

    One of my hydraulic lifters on camshaft is making a tapping noise as it's worn slightly and receiving a lack of oil when warming up. Cars serviced well and full of fresh oil and there is no point in replacing the whole camshaft. However I've heard on old cars (16 yrs old) that oil/engine...
