Opel Astra 2001 1.2 ecotec - Hard to start and engine with hick-ups on idle

My Astra wont start anymore normally unless I use a trick, starting the engine in 1st gear so I jerk the the car in 7-8 starting attempts and in 90 percent cases it starts finally when Im 15 meters from my house. - When I am on my destination it starts normally but starting problems comes always after no usage for 6 hours Both EML and check engine ligts comes and goes but never both- Would you think this is a sensor problem or a fuel injection problem or something else? - The problem started 1 month ago when engine started cutting off when slowing down but it changed into starting problem

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

I want to do any oil and filter change on my 2006 Astra 4 door hatch it is Holden GM model AH CDx it has an ecotec 1.8l unleaded petrol engine


So what is the problem? The new filter for a Z18XE screws directly on to the front of the engine block behind the radiator, and the oil drains out of the drain plug at the base of the sump. The Z18XER only differs in that the filter sits in a round black housing visible from the top right of the engine and is requires a 32mm spanner to remove the cover. The filter is different from that on the Z18XE

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.

Car wont start with key but will start with push


Sounds like your Battery is on the way out friend, and not turning the engine over fast enough. A push start always turns the engine fast.via the gears.
New Battery Time !!!!! Save getting puffed out pushing.
