SOURCE: service engine soon light keeps coming on. Now low coolant light

I would start by doing an oil change myself so you can examine the oil and look for water/antifreeze in it. You will be able to see it separate from the oil and you can smell the antifreeze. If there is then you have a leak between the water jacket and the heads somewhere. More than likely the LOWER intake gasket is leaking into the head. You said they replaced a gasket but was it the UPPER or LOWER? If it was the LOWER did they use RTV in the correct areas? Did they torque the intake bolts to the correct pressure and install the bolts correctly? I know you don't have these answers but these could all be part of the problem. It may be leaking more at #2 cylinder and causing it to foul more than the others. Also just because a mech pressurized the coolant system and didnt see any change in pressure (hopefully he wasn't just looking for visible leaks) the issue may not happen until the engine is hot, as metals behave differently when heated, especially aluminum which the LOWER intake is made. Have a mechanic or mechanically inclined friend (gearhead) remove the #2 plug wire, then kick the engine a few times without starting it, enough to let any fluid get into the chamber, this would include gas btw. Then remove the plug and look for any wet residue on the plug, gas will evap. quickly, antifreeze/oil won't. again try to smell the residue and if necessary, lightly touch some to your tongue, antifreeze has a sugary sweet taste that is easily detectable. Remember any time you are working with chemicals such as waste oil and especially anti freeze, minimize spills and clean them up quickly and completely and place the spent fluid in a sealable container and take them to a collection center for disposal. Waste oil is a carcinagin (cancer causing) agent and antifreeze (glycol) new or old will kill any animal (child, dog, cat,etc) that ingests it. Many auto parts stores and some other retailers that sell oil and antifreeze will take your wastes if you bought the replacement fluid from them, check before you buy.

Did your mechanic use a DRB III or equivalent scanner before performing the bleeding procedure after installing the master cylinder? This is a requirement by the manufacturer (Chrysler) when bleeding the brake system.

What causes heavy fuel usage on opel corsa light


common is air filter, spark plugs-failing dispack. and incorrect time setup. sometimes it can even be the ecu. as the ecu learns to cope with engine info and can adjust its own setting. using an ob2 devise you can reset them back to original settings, but its best to do a full service before doing this i e oil change spark plugs and air filter and fuel filter timing belt or chain depending on engine and water pump and replace belts. depending on the age of the engine it can improve mph by around 25% on old engines and upto 50% on newer engines.also if you have a/c on your engine this can use a lot of engine power, if the pump is faulty and not disengaged this will use more fuel. to check this take of the belt and turn by hand on the pump if its free and moves easy then its disengaged if its hard to move or makes a sound as turning its faulty and needs replacing.

Opel corsa baklie 1.6 sport 2007di engine light dont com on and dont haf sperk


the signal from the crank angle sensor thats mounted against the block pointing to the crank pulley is what tells the ecu that the engine is turning and to provide spark and injector pulse
so your possible problem area is the ecu
also check the ecu harness plug wires and pins
make sure the crank angle sensor is plugged in
