Very difficult to advise without heariing the noise ,opel vectra (vauxhall) nice motors these ,if noise stops in 5th then it could be the gearbox like the layshaft needle bearings caused by low or no oil in the gearbox ,remember 5th gear doesnt use the layshaft its on the end of the mainshaft behind the cover next to the wheel arch

1999 toyota corolla. Car would not shut off went


I assume the car is a petrol! to stop a petrol engine the ignition needs to be shut down! if there is over run happening there are a few reasons for this. There is a problem with ignition mudule! spark plugs coked up! or the cylinders are coked.
If the car is a Diesel model then the reason for this happening is the shut off valve on the fuel pump is at fault.

Hope this helps.

I HAVE A SLIGHT PURRING SOUND FROM THE ENGINE... WHEN I PUT THE CLUTCH IN IT STOPS... ALSO WHEN IM IN 1ST, 2ND AND 3RD GEAR WHEN IM ACCELERATING THERE ISNT A GOOD SOUND FROM IT!! BUT ITS FINE IN 4TH AND...


This would be most likely the first noise of a wearing input shaft bearing. It will only get louder, and eventual failure of the bearing will probably mean catastrophic gearbox failure. It stops when you put your foot on the clutch because the gearbox stops spinning then, and it is quiet in 4th and 5th because there is no side loading (as there is in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd) on the failing bearing. It wouldn't matter what sort of car it was, the gearbox should be overhauled as soon as possible.
