If ur car has a distribuitor it wont have a crankshaft sensor, the problem might be in your distribuitor, check the connector and its connection to the inner coil of the distribuitor... u said it was a ecotec engine, as far as i know ecotecs are 16 valve engines, in your case it would be a x14xe engine, with two camshafts, but that engine has a ignition coil, no distribuitor hope this helps

Why and what must I do. Spark plugs are wet of petrol. Mechanics take me for a ride every time.


Could be many things, but start with the basics. Use fuel pressure test gauge to check for leak down after shutting engine off. Could be leaky injectors. Could also be weak spark preventing fuel from complete burn--bad coil or ignition module. More likely bad coolant temp sensor making ECU think engine is still cold after it is warmed up. Another possibility is clogged exhaust.

Opel corsa problems


now! no doubt you fuel up at Tesco's, whether your car is petrol or diesel your injectors will be clogging, get some injector cleaner, put that in your tank run your car for a good few miles, I mean a lot, I had same problem in my Jaguar just recently, a couple of bottles of jet cleaner in with fuel when I went to fuel up, 1 week later smooth as a baby's.

I hope this solves your problem, it the cheapest way to start diagnosing.

Opel corsa bakkie-Cylinder 2 and 3 gives no spark


The ignition coil package is a kind of two coils. One is delivering to spark plug 1 and 4, the other is 2 and 3. So I think the coil is the problem.
