    My 1.4 Petrol Astra J 2011 has begun making a sort of squeaking noise when it sits at idle revs. It isn't completely consistent and sounds bit like a belt squeak, however I went and got the alternator belt and tensioner done as soon as it started but it is still there (and getting worse). I've...

    Hi all, As i said water is sloshing around in my 3 door 2007 Astra. I for the life of me have tried to find any bungs that would release the water. Initially i thought it was the door however when i shake it no sloshing happens. Sloshing happens when i accelerate & brake and sounds to me...

    Hey guys, new here! My Astra GTC 1.4T (38000 miles) has developed a rhythmic squeak/chirp sound when accelerating. It’s like a ‘squeak-squeak-squeak-squeak.’ The noise only happens when I press the accelerator when the car is in gear and moving. It usually happens in higher gears at lower rpms...

    So my Astra J 2013 1.4 was making a chirping noise while idling, removing the oil dipstick stopped the sound. After replacing the rocker cover, still made no difference. The actual cause of it was the Crank Pulley Seal. To get to this seal you need to support the engine, remove the left engine...

I have been...

    Hi everyone, I've been having trouble with my 2008 1.3 CDTI Astra H for a few weeks, and its been getting progressively worse.

    Hi All, Got a weird issue with an old Astra H 1.6 petrol from 2006 that my daughter bought. Warning light on the dash which I took to be the thermostat heater circuit. Bought a new thermostat but when I removed the old one I was surprised to find there was no actual thermostat inside the...

    Hi All, I own a Vauxhall Astra J 2011 1.6 Petrol (automatic). When braking hard or beginning to reverse, the engine sometimes stalls. It happens once or twice a day and has become extremely annoying especially when trying to park or do a 3-point turn. I've taken it to my local mechanic and...

    My car is an auto Astra 1.8 16v Energy hatchback 5d 1796cc. Whatever that means. When I went to work last night I accelerated quite hard out of a junction and the car instantly jolted, it stopped suddenly and went forward. Then I noticed a light came on with a car and a wrench in the middle, I...
