When weather gets hot we get a screeching noise from the car. It appears to come from the outside of the car. It does'nt happen all the time. Last summer it done it and we had it checked and they couldn't find anything wrong. And now we are getting the noise again.

Can anyone please tell me if their Vauxhall Corsa has a rubber seal as standard under the bonnet? Had RAC to the car as it kept misfiring, there was loads of water in the spark plugs. The RAC guy said there should be a rubber seal under the bonnet to prevent water spray getting under the car but there was never one from the off. To be fair this car hasn't got much of anything, really disappointed with it, only 3 years old and has had new coil pack and timing chain done too, pretty rubbish considering it`s only got 42,000 miles on the clock. This will be my first and last Vauxhall I'm afraid, very very disappointed

I have just got a corsa 1.0 breeze year 2000. I notice that although all the warning lights go off when you start the engine the EPS light takes longer to go out sometimes it doesn't go out until i go into 1st gear to move off. is this correct - if not a)what is it & b) what should i do about it. Otherwise everything appears to be working fine - engine, steering, gearbox, lighting etc.
