    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 I have a 1998 Vauxhall Corsa B 1.4 we recently changed the head gasket and since then the car is making a loud rattling noise when I reach 3000 revs. It sounds like it is coming from the timing or fan belt area. My fan belt has seen better days, in other words its got cracks all over and will...

    Hi Not sure if anyone can help? To cut a long story short my sons Corsa had a problem with the timing cover gasket that allowed water into the oil - we discovered this when the top end went noisy. We have removed the dump and cleaned out all the "jellied" oil, cleaned the oil filter housing -...

    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, This is my first post so sorry if I do it wrong. I've just purchased a Vauxhall Corsa SXI 1.2 2007 just over 2 weeks ago and have noticed that when driving it makes a quiet beeping noise. This beeping is quite a bit quieter than the noise it makes if you open the door with the engine on...

    Need some help in diagnosing this sound, any ideas, its a very faint but louder in person high pitch sound (Rubbing finger around the rim of a wine glass) when increasing and decreasing revs, you cannot hear it outside at all so dont think its the engine.

    My Corsa B creaks or makes clunking sounds from the rear when going over uneven roads or speedbumps. I've taken some pictures of the suspension. The left dampener looked as if though it might be leaking - it looked like there was some old oil on the top of it. This surprised me because the...

    Hi All, New to this forum, decided I would give it a go asking you guys what you thought before I took it to a garage to get checked out. My corsa 1.2 makes a loud knocking noise when travelling at low speeds, you can't hear it however once it gets above about 30mph? (approx), when the car is...

    Hello all I have a Corsa C 1.0L 12V. Ever since I've owned the car I've always heard a ticking noise coming from behind the drivers side wing. When I'm stationary it gradually kicks in however when I accelerate it disappears but then comes back when I'm about 2/3 revs. Anyway since owning the...

    I've had this problem for a while now, whenever I turn the steering wheel, even just the smallest amount, i'll hear a creaking noise. It's almost a rubbery noise. It's made worse when someone sits in the passenger seat too :( Any ideas? I was thinking it may be the strut mounts.:confused:

    Hi guys, Swapped out the pads on my b last Wednesday. Straight away noticed my brake pedal hitting the floor, but that seems to have sorted itself over the last two days (If something fixes itself I won't complain). Now every now and again the drivers side squeals. Funny thing is it makes...

    Hi, I have a 1.2 twinport (54 reg) so far all I have done Is place an exhaust back box on the car. I'm looking at air filters next and am looking for the added power and better noise. Is it worth doing on my car and will I need a cold air intake or is it not really needed. Also if you think I...

    Hi there! I currently have a Corsa (09 reg) 3 door, 1.3 diesel ecoflex and I've recently noticed an issue with my air conditioning - when the A/C is on there is a noticeable noise coming through the vents. It's hard to explain the noise, but it's like as if you've set the fans on to about 3/4...

    PAS pump or belt has been squeaking slightly, only noticeable at idle RPM, not affected by actually using the steering. My local mechanic just sprayed the belt with WD40 and the noise stopped. Today, it started making a much louder squeal. I can't make it stop, except it's quieter the higher...

    My 1999 Corsa B has developped an odd noise coming from the back of the car. I'll try and explain it and hopefully someone will know what the problem is! It sounds like a rumbling/roaring/bit like a plane taking off. Seems to be coming from the back passenger side however it only happens when...

    Hi I have a 1996 N reg 1.4 16v X14XE I am learning mechanics at college so when i new my head gasket was going i thought i'd use their facilities in the hope of making the job a little easyer. Now, after changing the gasket and skimming the cylinder head i started up the car, it ran but was...

    i fitted my hottuning coilovers today and we had a bit of trouble with the top mounts as we wernt sure on how they fitted the new coiovers so in the end we used the cone the new ones came with with the top mount (that has the two bolts that go under the bonet) but now the front end makes a...

    I've recently bought a Corsa 1.3 cdti (54 plate) from a main dealer. It's done about 80k and generally runs v well. However since day 1 I have heard a high pitched whining noise mainly at low speed and low revs, for example while driving in traffic or round a car park. It gets louder as the revs...
