SOURCE: oil pressure too high

nothing wrong ignore and stop worrying,change oil every 6000miles and use cheapest from supermarket,change oil filter every third oil change to save money and pollution of the disposal of old oil filter.If you worried about high pressure then stop beleaving the adverts for synthetic oil and putting in oil thickening agents like slick or duckhams.You could get the sender units changes for the oil pressure but just go for a burn and enjoy and stop worrying its only a car when all is said and done

SOURCE: Coolant leaking into engine Compartment

Most likely it's the heater coil leaking inside the car. This is located inside the heater/AC unit up under the dash. This is where the heat comes from when the heater is on.

SOURCE: Bad engine noise low oil pressure

as for the 93 model i would say if the oil pump isn't working properly chances are that the crank and con rod bearings will be damaged and possibly piston i'm not sure about repairers where you are but if i were to pay $1200 i would expect the motor to be rebuilt too if it has done some serious damage i woul suggest a reconditioned engine you should be able to pick one up for around $1500-$2000 and most of them come with 2 yr warranty firstly id check the oil filter and see wether there are any debris in it such as metal or brass filings as for the 98 model with oil pressure light flickering on and bad engine knock i would think it was either a small end bearing or a big end bearing probably best not to drive it to long with a bad knock because a worn out big end bearing can end up letting the con rod come loose and break or bend causing serious damage ask your mechanic to check the engine oil pressure with a guage and put a new oil filter on it (Could be blocked)

At how many miles should I change the timing belt on my vauxhall corsa 1.0

You didn't say whether it is a Corsa A, B or C but no matter as they all seem to have timing chains listed rather than belts.

There are no set intervals for chain replacement but that doesn't mean they can be neglected. It is a good idea to check them for wear periodically.

I have a rattling sound which is loud when my 04 corsa 1.2 engine is warm.I had the timing belt changed by vauxhall 6,000 miles ago.Took it in to vauxhall last week as the noise bothers me they did oil and...

Check the engine top heat shield and the undercarriage heat shields. They may be loose and rattling. Give 'em a bump with your hand and see if they rattle. If they do, tighten them.

The techs at Vauxall may have failed to tighten the upper heat shield when they replaced the timing belt.

1997 Vauxhall Corsa - turns over but does not start when warm

It sounds like the pickup coil in the distributor, when it gets hot, it goes open circuit. Changing the plugs won,t help
