    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 everyone Some of you may know that I've had several problems in the past with the throttle body, ICV, TPS etc, but the car has been running fine for well over a year now. Recently I've noticed a faint smell of fumes in the cabin when sat in traffic (it goes away when moving). It only take a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Hi I have had this car for four month. I got it cheap as it had a timing chain problem which I got sorted out. Since then it has been running a dream until now. I was causally driving down the bybass when the engine warning light flashed and then stayed on. There was a sudden lack in power and...

    I have a Corsa 1.0L registered April 2009 which seems to be using a lot of oil. Vauxhall tell me it is within limits but I cant really believe this. Does anyone know the recommended amount of oil a corsa should be using and / or where I can find the official figures?

    corsa b x10xe 1999 1.0ltr: was noticing a patch of oil underneath the car so looked at engine and it was coming from the oil pressure sender unit area but strangely not from the thread it seems but from the plug itself, I unplugged the lead then started the engine and oil was coming out from...

    x10xe 1.0ltr 12v 1999 corsa - I have my throttle body in bits at the moment giving it a good soak in petrol to get rid of the carbon and muck on the throttle plate and inside. I disconnected 2 breather hoses that lead to the top of the rocker box of the engine on the right hand side. I just...

    I have an 02 corsa 1.2 gsi and recently had the oil warning light coming on. I checked the oil but it was full. I then did a full oil change having put engine flush in first and replaced the usual filters. The opil warning light doesn't come on now but I have an oil leak on the left hand side...

    I have a 1.0L corsa C with 48K on the clock. There is a pretty bad oil leak that looks like it is coming from the region of the crankshaft oil seal behind the flywheel, as it is mainly coming out of the engine/box joint. There is also oil over other parts of the lower engine. A couple of weeks...
