Question about 2002 Opel Corsa

Opel corsa problems

I have a B class Opel sedan, after I drive 30 kilometers my speedometer stops working, then a yellow light on my dashboard flashes every now and again, then when I apply breaks my car does not idle and cuts out. Once my car is cool again she runs perfectly. I thought it was my crankshaft sensor so I changed that, but I still have the same problem, I heard that I should probably change my speedometer sensor and my temp. sensor as that might be the problem, all of these problems started after I had my front end straightened after a mechanic noticed my tires were running squew from an accident the previous owner had that conveniently never told me about, I suspect that my sensors need replacing considering they might have gotten damaged after the mechanic straighten my front end, but I do not want to waste money on parts and do all the handy work myself if that is not the correct way to go, could someone please tell me how to stop my car from doing this as I do not feel safe in my car anymore.

You need to have a thorough diagnosis made by a competent mechanic to determine what's really wrong and needs to be fixed. Otherwise, you will continue replacing parts at random.

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.

SOURCE: opel corsa 1.2 easytronic 2007 car starts roaring at a full stop

Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

My Opel corsa Lite 1.4i, 2005 model cuts off when idling or stopping. I've replace the ignition coil as it was suggested but the next day the problem continued. I've replace plugs, filters, ect. When I'm approaching a place where i have to stop i see lights on dashboard coming out and the engine goes off if i stop or if i put the second gear it kicks again. Please assist as none of mechanics in my area know where to fix now.
