I meant to say the car is an automatic and I took it to diagnostics but they hooked it up to 2 different computers and could not get a reading. I think this is due to the car being 16 years old

When I am driving along the car seems to suddenly start pulling back and straight away the orange management light comes on. Initially it came on and went off straight away and it was only happening when I started to accelerate from 30 mph upwards but now it is coming on at all different times and much more frequently and is also staying on a bit longer than it was initially before going out again. Can someone please tell me what this is and what I need to get done to get the problem sorted? Thanks

2002 Vauxhall corsa 1.2 16v sxi starts but immediately cuts out. Only two dashboard lights come one when you turn the key. The engine management light, which stays on and the air bag light which goes off after a second. Dash board would sometimes cut out when driving then come back on after a few seconds but car would drive ok. Any ideas?

Vauxhall Corsa

Good day I have a 2009 Corsa 1.4i Essential. It has happened twice now that the engine runs really lumpy when starting the car. The engine light, and the this morning, gear box lights came on. I just switched of the car and started again and then it was running smoothly again and all the warning lights went off. What could this possibly be? The car has 85000 miles on the clock and as serviced less than a 1000 miles ago.

I have a 2008 opel corsa D 1.4 petrol manual transmission that has an unbalanced idle that hardly lasts without my foot on the accelerator,and if let to idle dies and when driven once I brake at an intersection the car stalls,no fault codes from an opel dealer could be obtained,lately at instances the accelerator stops responding when brake is pressed,the accelerator has a sensor that communicates with the throttle at the engine.which has a six pin connector,and I noticed the butterfly keeps shaking when it has this (rough)idle,as well it misses at instances when the accelerator is moved up or down,I seek help on this problem,I wish to run a check on any voltages between the pedal and the six pin connector as well as the ECU,anyone with the correct voltages could be of great assistance or else I might need to replace blindly and change the throttle unit from the engine as I have done with the accelerator pedal,thank you

Hello so i have bought this car as my first car of a private seller. when i purchased this car it had just been put through its MOT in feb 2016 and had done 34000 miles so all in all a good little runner. A month later and its all gone wrong. MY BACK BOX on the exhaust has eroded, so that needs replacing and fitted. MY DIALS AND ELECTIRCS keep loosing POWER when driving im having to bang on the dash to get them to come to life again. I am constantly filling it up with water as i think i have a slow leak somewhere and now it decides to not start FIRST,SECOND,THIRD TIME, it just starts chugging the cuts out... when i do get it started it drives okay but this morning i reversed put my parking bay and it cut out then cut out again whilst driving down a country lane. i know this is an old car and would like some advice on whether to get it all fixed and serviced. what the total cost would be from anyone else's experience or whether to get a new car. Thanks Guys

Really strong smell of petrol inside of car

Answers

Expect you found the problem by now. Check the fuel line where it doubles back on itself near the top of the firewall just right of center and then goes to the throttle body. There should be a rubber sleeve over the point where it crosses the metal fuel line and retaining clip.. If the sleeve has been moved out of place the rubber line rubs on the metal fuel pipe and will fail. A pin hole but very noticeable fumes in the car. Jamie Brown from Bristol

Hi, I have a 2003 Vauxhall corsa 1.2. Sometimes when you turn on the ignition only two warning lights come up and no gauges. The car will start but cuts out immediately. Most of the time the car starts and all of the gauges are working and runs perfectly. Nothing comes up on the diagnostics test. What is the fault?

Answers

One of the biggest problem with intermittent electrical faults is diagnosing them... they can only be diagnosed when the fault happens.. and you can't always make it happen.. In the interim I'd be looking for loose wires or connections and corroded or dirty connections and loose plugs. Rule out what you can, It may come down to faulty ECU or console.

I own an opel corsa 2004 it was ok until I suffered this problem as the car will not start if left for a couple of days . I changed the drained battery , checked the alternator and cables however after the new battery was connected I worked fine until I left it for 3days and the new battery was drained again have you any possibility what is the problem of my car best regards

Answers

If you have a security system,eg alarm/immobiliser/tracking device.It would be best you have them tested for drawing current when your vehicle is idle,these are generally the appliances that remain active even after you take your keys home.your battery may not be good enough as well,get it tested,the other suspect would be a malfunctioning alternator or atarter that is shorting out.-good luck Ottaviani from South Africa
