    Hi, it happened to me. It was the Head Gasket. It is indeed very pricey to repair or to replace. It will be your decision what to do. I decided to repair, because I cannot buy a new car at this point in time, but I am also very sentimental about my "Skedonkie", which is a 1994 160i Opel Astra.

SOURCE: Plymouth Breeze 1998 ... no heat.... "check engine" light

He's givin you the truth and nothing but the truth those are all symptoms of a blown head gasket wich is usually a pretty pricey job. I guess you need a final price and then weigh out whether its more economical for you to save it or replace it. It Happens Good luck.
p.s If you keep it make sure the entire cooling system is flushed to prevent further problems

SOURCE: 1997 Neon dies, starts after electric fuel pump relay swapped

Hello, I would assume this is your fuel pump inside your tank. I would first however do some basics like a general tuneup. For starters I would replace your spark plugs and wires, rotary cap and button and check your fuses. Run some injector cleaner through your system. You know quick simple cheap things before you get to the fuel pump inside the gas tank which can be kinda expensive. The warm up then dies can be caused by, "blownout or fouled," spark plugs. I hope this gives you a general direction in which to go. A sidenote is that coil packs do not normally run an igntion code and I for one do not like them becuase they are expensive.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on upon start up

Yes the shops technician got it right. as per the error code which you mentioned.These 2 codes are usually caused by a faulty crankshaft sensor (P0321) & possibly an ignition module (P1361). When replacing these parts part attention to the female electrical terminals in each connection. They will sometimes "spread" & cause an intermitten open circuit. Check each female electrical terminal with an opposing male terminal. There should be a small amount of "drag" when connecting the two of them. Thanks.Helpmech.

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.

Guessing just wastes money . have the fault codes read first and find exactly which sensor/s are causing you a problem
not all faults energize the engine light and remember the engine light also refers to problems in the transmission

Opel Astra 1.6 16v wont start but has power.


The engine light has been an indication you may have a "battery charging problem"...This could be a bad battery, bad alternator, or just dirty battery post connections (or loose) Try the cleaning and tightening of the posts first...(least costly) dirty posts will allow the lights etc to work, but do not allow the full current needed to turn the starter...Hope this helps.

Reset (replace) computer box


The fact that all your electrics disappeared including all dashboard lights indicates a faulty battery/connection.

Check the battery terminals for cleanliness and tightness. Check the black earth lead for cleanliness and tightness where it connects to the engine block/bodywork. Try adding an extra black battery lead - connect it to a suitable point on the engine or bodywork

Opel astra club model.bt it smoke with engine operation what is problem?


gray smoke is water ( check water level )
black smoke is oil (check oil level)
also check if you are parked on an incline, if back of car is up un air then water can sit in the exhaust over night. and it can take upto 2hrs of driving to get it out. this will also give you gray smoke.

94 subaru legacy wagon stalls when engine is warm then starts when cool


Have the battery and alt tested for free at the local parts store.
Tell them what it's doing, and start suspecting a fuel issue.
Could be getting the right amount of fuel but not burning it. (plugs, wires, coil)
Or could not be getting enough fuel.

Still hard to say, so get the charging/power system checked first.
Let me know what you find out as I'm real curious now.

Same happened to a friend and it was the fuel pump....
Same for another friend and it was 2 bad coil packs.
