Noticed this on MOK tonight, seems to happen when turning right at around 10mph or more. I assume its an oil surge, but this has never happened on other corsas I've driven.

Checked oil, and last owner has filled up way too much, so much is goes on the metal of the dipstick :palm:
So it's not low oil,

Could the high oil level not be causing it?
My 1.0 really spat it's dummy out when I bought it and it had been overfilled.

Love how everything with MOK gets blamed on the unnamed 'previous owner'

I jinxed it dammit! i said its last ageees! Last owner was my retarded cousin, mental level of a downsyndrome.

But mark we never put oil in it, we only ever serviced it once. did you check the oil after running it? or even wipe the dip stick first lol?

Are these a pain to change? Behind cambelt iirc?

No chance it's oil pressure sensor

My old Corsa did this when it was too full/empty, the pump may be failing due to higher oil pressure from increased oil level?

The pump is behind the timing belt, have to take it off to change I think k, not 100% sure though, not had much experience with these engines past changing plugs etc
