    I think i,ve found the problem, I may have a pin hole in the heater coil, poss solution is to put a rad-seal into the main rad and run for 15 mins, if not it could be costly.

SOURCE: My Opel Corsa dies down during driving, it will only start again after 7 to 10 mins, l have no clue whats happening.

No idea offhand to be honest i would need my head under the bonnet to know what wrong .could be anything from the gauze filter in the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump becoming chocked up and leaving the car allows it to drop away to a faulty pump overheating or the contacts ,maybe even a ignition module overheating ,Best advice is ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as normally these early opel corsas with the 4 cylinder engine are bullet proof they are even valve free if the timing belt snaps .

Why do i smell fuel when i start my opel corsa bakkie 1.4 fumes coming from exhaust smell off fuel


Rick mixture or stuck choke. Get it to a garage and get it on an exhaust analyser. Will save you money in the long run with the saving in fuel. I presume fuel costs as crazy in Australia as they are in the UK.

Air vent schematic


air for the inside of the car comes from the vent at the base of the windscreen or is recirculated inside the car
if you see what appears to be mist, fog or smoke from the ac vents ,it is extra cold air from the ac system that is seen as fog when it hits the air in the car
you will know exhaust fumes by the smell

Windscreen keeps misting when car is parked


Is it fogging up when you use the heat or a/c? Is it fogging up after sitting outside on a particularly dewey night?

An easy fix and one to try first is turning the temperature gauge over toward heat, and setting the directional controls to defrost. Up the power on the blower for a moment. The warmer air will usually clear up a foggy windshield in seconds on a chilly or even not-so-chilly morning. The condensation on the glass needs a change of temp in order to evaporate. Sometimes you can get the same effect by using outside air to circulate through your car's blower system. Most have a way of circulating either inside-car air, or outside-car air.

If the glass fogs when you're driving down the road and have the heat on, or the a/c - do you smell something sweet or see white smoke coming out of your air vents? If so, you could have a faulty heater core. I wouldn't imagine this is the problem on such a new vehicle, but it could still malfunction.

Of course, if you're trying to wipe this fog clean and it won't go away, maybe you've got someone smoking in the car and leaving a film on the glass. It would take a lot of smoking to make the windshield look foggy though.

Bad smell in side car. smells somewhat like a mold or dampness problem.


Hi,
Check the carpet on the passenger side and see if it is damp or wet. Also, have you noticed white smoke coming from your vents? Does your windshield etc. fog up rather than defrost? If so, you probably have a heater core that is leaking and needs replaced.
Hope this helps! Good luck.
