Opel corsa problems

Sometime when I try to start my Corsa Lite it sounds like a tractor and it takes a while before she runs smooth enough to drive, while this is happening I have no power, she is also very heavy on fuel, 9 km / L. I have been told it may be the coil but I really do not want to go on maybe's. Can you please help

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.

    it still sounds like injectors, hence the black cloud, all the rubbish getting burnt off, its jus cheap fuel it happens regulsr, but eventualy gets to all cars through time the matter what type of fuel you use.

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 .

Sounds like you not getting enough fuel. Try replacing you fuel filter which sits under neath the rear near the tank. Just follow the line from the tank and you'll see it or it can be a faulty fuel pump You should get 3 bars pressure from it.

There are many things that can cause this, each will set a fault code in the computer control module of the engine and drivetrain (both are fully electronically controlled). So you must have a fault code test run to read these codes and then diagnose the cause(s)

2005 Opel Corsa lite switches off with irregular revs


Front right lower side is the crank sensor ,in line with the crankshaft ,could be this playing up although i have had many problems with this type of engine ,one problem is the computer bolted to the engine ,seem to suffer heat fatigue ,another problem i cannot explain is it just will not start and for this i fit a crank sensor from the earlier version with the toothed front pulley and support then cut the wires from the crank sensor and run them to the one at the front of the engine but they are polarised on the wires so if it doesnt start reverse the wires to the crank sensor ,Now no doubt iam wrong as ever but i do think that the crank becomes magnatised and its affecting the sensor so by moving it to the front pulley it eliminates this problem .

I drive a 2006 Opel corsa lite. it revs itself up to 3000 when i clucth approaching a stop sign and it doesnt go off, just revs up then a few seconds then goes down, does it again while i stop.


I'm not sure if you have an idle air control valve or not, but my mustang did the exact same thing.
I replaced the IAC and the problem was gone.

could be a blocked air vacuum line you should see a thin air line coming from the intake and go to the cam cover top check this line as they do block up after awhile and it will cause this problem. also if this is blocked you need to clean out the intake top as this is were it clogging up as well.
