  1. [Corsa B] [94-00] Poor MPG with 1.5TD in Combo van swap

    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Agila, Combo
    I recently successfully swapped a 1.5TD into my Combo B van. I love the engine. It's fast on boost, it doesn't leak, it's reliable. I did the white ring mod before fitting the engine, and a full service (filters, plugs, fluids). For the first few months after the swap, I had the fuel pump...
  2. [Corsa B] [94-00] Mechanical Injection Pump

    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Agila, Combo
    Hey everyone, I have a 1997 Corsa B 1.5TD and I have advanced the injection pump. The car feels way powerful than before but it does have a bit of black smoke from the exhaust, even in high RPMs with the turbo full. I wanted to reduce the injection a bit, but a friend of mine told me it will...
  3. [Corsa B] [94-00] So confused by this 1.5TD I've bought to swap into my Combo van

    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Agila, Combo
    Hi. I've been forced into doing this engine swap, although I love a challenge. :lmao: The original 1.7D engine leaks oil from all over the head, uses up coolant, and suffers overheating on the motorway. I had been thinking about an engine swap anyway, as more power would be nice, but didn't...

    Hey guys, In the near future I will be changing the power steering oil of my Corsa B 1.5TD from 1997. I will be following this How-To video from ChrisFix: Any one wants to give me any advice on top of that? Any thing I should be looking out for? Also, what oil should I buy? Thanks in advance.
  5. [Corsa B] [94-00] [CLOSED] Thermostat tubes and housing

    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Agila, Combo
    Hey guys, I have this engine, 1.5TD Isuzu from a corsa b of 1995. There's a few metal tubes on the termostar housing that have too much rust, we want to replace them with new ones. The question is: can this tubes be removed from the termostat housing, since they have that grooving in them...
  6. [Corsa Combo Van] Engine is in a terrible state. Easiest engine swap?

    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Agila, Combo
    Hi all, I absolutely love my combo van. I've had 2 of them, which add up to 12 years of customising the interior with camping equipment, gadgets, comforts and entertainment. I also had this one resprayed 2 years ago, so irrespective of cost, I'm keeping this little van forever. Just so that...
