Hello Everyone!

I recently bought a Corsa C 1.0 51 plate with 67k on the clock it run like a dream when i took it for a test drive! However since getting it home ive found i cant use all my throttle as it seems to bog down when i use more than half? Also sometimes the revs can be very juddery and sluggish, and sometimes it cuts out on me altogether!

It been a bit of a pig to get started the last couple of days! I had a friend plug his diagnostic computer in and it spit out that we had a crankshaft sensor error and an O2 sensor error, I am going to a garage to get these sorted tonight hopefully.

Has anyone else had a problem like this?

(P.S I had to call out greenflag the first time I broke down and he checked the coil and said its fine and that my oil looked perfect)

I took it to my mates local mechanic, he's fitting the sensors for me today both the O2 sensors and the crankshaft.

However he came across a bigger problem in that the oil pump is on its way out, everytime the car idles once its warm the oil light starts to flicker. Does anyone know where I can order a pump from as me and a friend (ex-mechanic) are going to fit it so we avoid the massive labour fees! :eek:

Don't blame the pump without first determining if the oil switch is faulty, or even that you have the wrong oil in it!!

Two ways to check the switch: (1) Replace it. (2) Remove it and fit a pressure gauge in its place. That is probably the better way, as then you get to know exactly what the oil pressure is.
If you wish to fit a permanent gauge, you will also need a 'T' piece to accept the switch as well as the connection to the gauge.

If you wish to buy a gauge, have a look at www.vehicleproducts.co.uk

Regards
