Hi i have vauxhall corsa 1.2sxi twinport 2005, i recently had a mechanic run some tests because it was losing power there was little bit of cream round the oil cap, he did compression test and emissions...


Sometime it is hard to diagnotic head gasket when leak is very small, Put pressure on 15pound air pressure in cooling system when cold and check leak.

You could find it with exhaust gaz analyser in the radiator cap(exhaust leak from head gasket) if so try BARS leak or head gasket sealer in radiator sometime it work for small leak

Hi do i need to replace the main bearing and the conrod bearing bolts on the opel corsa 6W engine 2006 model


it is good mechanical practice to replace all bolts that are operating under tension. That includes con rod bolts , big end bolts fly wheel bolts , head studs and crank shaft bolt. Some manuals recommend the replacement of cam shaft sprocket bolts as well. This practice is recommended where the engine is driven at high rpms. It is recommended practice because the tension effect actually twists the bolt and this combined with the tensional stress makes the bolts prone to failure. As it adds considerably to the cost many mechanics do not follow the practice but will charge for the new bolts as well.

Change head gasket on 65 mustang 200


Drain antifreeze -DON"T POUR IT DOWN A STORM DRAIN - then remove valve cover, Remove exhaust from head assembly. On this engine the head is also the intake manifold - it's cast as a unit. Remove carb and remove heater hoses from carb base plate. Remove head bolts and discard. Break head loose from block - may have to smack it a time or two to break gasket loose. Get a buddy to help lift the head off the block - it's fairly heavy. Clean gasket surfaces on both head and block. Install new gasket onto block - pay attention to gasket orientation - it goes on only one way correctly. Reverse procedure to re-install - USE NEW HEAD BOLTS! Silly to try to save $20 bucks on bolts and ruin an engine.

Head gasket problems on vauxhall corsa 1.6 1999


The heads will need to be shaved at a head shop, but should be $15 each or so. The block's gasket surface needs to be spotless also. When reinstalling the heads, make sure all the blots go in the same place they came from. The bolts also need to be tightened in steps in a cross pattern, so as not to warp the head under pressure.
You can remove the valves with a spring compressor and clean them out really good.
You will need an entire gasket set...the intake manifold and exhaust....etc...it all comes together.
You may want to use a tap & dye set on the bolts and block to clean the threds.
If you can remember how things go, or use a digital camera....you will do fine. BE CLEAN when it comes to the gasket surfaces. Start with a wire wheel on the block, and work down to some acetone to remove all oil.
Torque the head bolts to the specs!
Good Luck!
