    Astra 2000 1.4 AC Car running fine. Not over heating .But when reaches normal temp cooling warning light come on and condenser fan runs. AC working very well -very cold.What is going on? Replaced thermostat, coolant and sensor .No change.Not keen on paying exorbitant GM dealer diagnostic fee. It ought to be Free and then they make their money out of you. You would be more inclined to use dealers and everyone would be happy.

Hi there,

When cold, remove plug of the temperature sensor usually found at the top of the radiator (but may be on thermostat area)

Check sensor with a meter - should be normally open (non conducting)

If faulty, fit a replacement. (undo cap of coolant system, then retighten, undo and replace sensor quickly to avoid too much coolant loss, then top up system.) You can drain the system, but sometimes causes airlocks and more problems.

Vauxhall mavano van lack of power in low gears pinking and white smoke going up hills


Hi

Its the EGR valve, take it off and clean it with some carb cleaner this often works rather than buying a new one, a new one is about £150 from vauxhall, its very common but do have a go at cleaning it, I got another 2 years out of mine on a astra van. EGR is exhaust gas recycler, its kinda like a little turbo, it reburns any unburnt fuel when they go wrong you loose about 70% of the total power of the van and hates climbing hills.

I would bet without any doubt that this is the fault

if you need any advice on removing it let me know, its a simple task.
Regards
Dan

Vauxhall combo van, the spanner light comes on and stays on when ignition is switched on, and the mileage stays illuminated at all times even when the key is removed, just bought van any clues, drives well...


Can mean many things, automatic gearbox, emissions problems and if it flashes, it is an immobilizer fault. The car can be driven, if running ok but the engine management system should be checked ASAP. You will need EOBD diagnostic equipment to find cause. vauxhall can check this 4 u but it will cost u £47 unfortuanely but 4 that price u can get the diagnostic reader ur self the port is under the ash tray or the cover below the hand brakeRAC.htm">http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/7402742/Trail/searchtext>RAC.htm

My car wont start, 1997 vauxhall astra 1.7 turbo diesel


This sounds like a problem in the fuel shut off circuit. When you turn the key on, it energizes the fuel shut off solenoid on the injection pump. When you turn off the key, power is removed and the pump is moved by spring to the fuel off position. Check for power at this terminal when you are having a problem, ( with the key on) If no power then I would check the wiring and connectors from this connection to the Ignition key. I believe it is wired direct. That can be checked at http://www.alldata.com/products/index.jsp

subscribe3 and get a wiring schematic for the car and see if it is wired direct to the ign switch of from a relay, I am sure it is a connection problem if you have no power.

A 1.7 diesel even if turboed, is dead slow in any vehicle let alone a van. Enjoy the fuel economy

good luck
