    Hi all, I own a Vauxhall Astra 1.6i 16V SRi 5d 2011 and I'm having an issue with it. I've broken down several times in the last couple of weeks and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. 2 weeks ago I was driving for about 90mins and noticed my car starting to shake quite...

    Had a chuffing noise (almost like a steam train) for a while now, took it in thinking it was a bad injector, was told it was the swirl flaps. Had a swirl flaps removed and deleted and noise was gone when I picked it up. Been away for a couple days and just got in and it’s still there but goes...

    I have an Astra J A16XER. I have oil leaking into the coolant tank. I am quite certain it is the seals on the oil cooler, however I just want to be sure. I have checked the dipstick and it has no water residue or milky residue on it, so I believe the head gasket is fine. I can see oil on the...

    Hi all, I'm pretty new owner of Astra J 1.6 turbo, have it for almost 4 months. The car is in good condition, just under 50k confirmed miles, but so far it has been more negative feelings than positive ones, mainly due to automatic gearbox work. Facing two issues: 1) Just recently noticed a...

    Hey guys. I took my car in for 4 new tyres last week and the mechanic pointed out I have an oil leak coming from front passenger side somewhere. It’s collecting in the plastic bit you can see in the pic. Rubbed finger along it and quite a bit of dark oil. I’ve attached a picture so you can see...

    I've seen a few posts with the same issue but am yet to find a fix for mine. In desperate need of advice as to what to troubleshoot next. So far I have checked fuses and relays and fuse box lines themselves with a multimeter and they seem to be fine. The fan itself works and comes on with...

    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...
