Question about 2006 Opel Astra 1.6

1 Answer

I am driving a 2006 opel astra 1.6. About 3000km after my car was serviced ma car started to make a funny noise and it sounded like the lifters is making a noise. I did my research on my car and saw that it must take 5w-30 oil i replaced the oil hoping it will take the noise away but did not help at all. No my question is that if the wrong oil was placed in my car when it was serviced can this damage my engine?

SOURCE: opel corsa 1.2 easytronic 2007 car starts roaring at a full stop

Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

I have a Opel Astra G (T3000) 2.0 16v Ecotec motor...Bad metal rattling sound developed from motor and there after in the course of driving water started spilling out from underneath the car..


Sounds like water pump has given out. If you can slacken the belt that drives it and then run engine again briefly. If the noise is gone when you have done this it will be water pump for sure.

Sounds like the wires may not be hooked correctly on the starter; maybe one was left off. Or you may have blown the fuseable link in the cable. Check all the connections to verify they are correct, then verify there is power reaching the starter to verify the fuseable link isn't blown.

Noisy start in the morning


I am assuming that you used el cheapo oil filter rather than a known brand in the service. Oil filters have a non drain back valve built into the filter to stop your problem but some cheap or wrong filters do not have this valve hence your problem.. The noise goes when the oil pressure fills up all the hydraulic lifters and oil pressure is achieved.

Opel astra twinport 1.6 2006 Z16XE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START


Hi, Have a diagnostic scan done and also a mechanical error trace ,
the solution to the problem could be the CKP crankshaft position sensor or a wiring related issue, it could also be the fuel pump , the pump relay , engine management actuator . In order for your engine to start it requires the following:
Compression
Fuel pressure and volume
A proper spark
Correct valve timing and ignition timing
A decent battery vitally important as all engine management relies on it.
Hope this helps a bit
Regards Higgins.
