    Hi all, I'm new here. We have a Meriva Exclusiv 1.4 from 2012. It was my in-laws and sat mostly unused during the first lockdown. A few months ago the car overheated. We noticed there was no coolant so filled it up (though it took A LOT of pressure to open the cap!) Not long after, we noticed...

    Hi everyone I truly hope someone can help me solve this mystery… earlier this year I bought a 2010 corsa 1.4 manual petrol. Never had any major issues with the car until I tried to drive a longer distance than usual a few months ago. The coolant was bubbling and evaporated entirely and the...

    If you get error "coolant level low add coolant", first check coolant level. It should be at middle on joint of two parts of reservoir. If it is correct, check float (white ring made from foam) in reservoir when coolant is cold. It need to move up and down freely, so push it down and check will...

    Hi The temperature gauge keeps rising when I am at a standstill and the fans kicks in to lower the temp back to 90. I’ve had it tested and the code is “insufficient coolant flow” We’ve changed the temp sensor in the engin but this hasn’t made a difference... The thermostat is 1-2 years old...

    Morning all. Recently iv noticed that when I put my heating on in my 58plate Insignia the temperature gauge drops down towards 80c but shortly after will work it way back up to 90c. Is this anything to worry about or does something need changing. The gauge doesn't go over 90. Just drops below...

I did a...

    I have this issue with my 2011 1.8 petrol Insignia, where it loses coolant within 5 miles of topping up. I get the low coolant warning every time I drive. The expansion tank doesn’t drain all the way which is strange. Once I top up, it’ll drain about 2/3 of the way and will stay there for...

    Hi, I have a Vauxhall Insignia Reg 61 car. Bought it 4 months ago. I have found the coolant leaking so took it to a garage to check the problem. They found out that the thermostat housing got a crack. They changed it. A day later I checked the level of the coolant and it was low. Tried to...
