Hi everyone, first time here, hope I’m in the right place.
Please can someone tell me if I’m imagining this or if it’s actually possible.
I had a minor coolant leak on my 2011 diesel insignia, right at the front of the car on the passengers side. Took it to a garage, they said it needed a new...
Hi, I have a 2015 Insignia which has started to get hot rather quickly, it's not overheated yet as such but it's hot in minutes so I assume it will cook itself ultimately if it is an engine fault.
After driving just 2 miles rather gently the temperature gauge is almost at the point it would be...
I've replaced the Auxiliary drive belt after the tensioner failed.
Engine cranks over but will not run.
Injector fuel supply checked and okay.
Fuel priming pump runs.
Rev counter active when cranking over.
Cam and crank sensors checked and look okay.
Battery disconnected for about...
Hi all, I'm new to owning a meriva and I have the 1.7cdti 108bhp engine. It's 2013 and currently has 53k on the clock. I'm thinking of getting it tuned and regal tuning has quoted they can safely take it to 170bhp and nearly 300ftlb of torque. Has anyone else chipped or mapped the same engine or...

I bought the car a few months ago and was fine. It has been serviced and MOT. First it cut out on me with battery light and the battery WAS the issue. I replaced it and it ran fine only to randomly happen again. The car drives normally and all of a sudden the battery and oil light come on and...
I'm new to the forums. I have a Combo 1.3 Diesel from 2005. The engine revs up when in neutral and when the car is in motion. My mechanic says the 1.3 diesel doesn't have an IAC so I'm quite stumped. Also, it doesn't happen when it's in gear or the car is still. If anyone has experience...
I had a zafira B 1.7 CDTi.
There was an issue with it cutting out after idling and a belt squeal that progressively got worse and worse. I ended up replacing the SCV and the timing belt and fan belt as it was very difficult to pin point which belt was causing the issue plus it had 108k...
Are there any specific conditions that needed to be met for the DPF to regen? e.g certain speed,rev range,driving time etc.
There is a similar system on my wife's E87 BMW 118d(N47D20) where you have to drive a certain distance above a certain speed and I want to understand if any of...
Whilst replacing the fuel filter on a 2013 Vauxhall Corsa SRI CDTI 1.7, A17DTS engine I broke the two little plastic clips that secure the fuel pipe to the fuel filter. They were on opposite sides of the pipe and both pop up, one white and one blue.
Its not like any of the fuel clips I have...
Attempting to diagnose an issue with my Zafira B. The fuel reading has been wrong for over 2 months. When filling, there is often a huge release of gas. I've found when gas is released, the fuel reading goes right down, so leads me to believe the excess pressure is causing the incorrect...

I've recently purchased a Zafira 1.7 ECOFLEX.
I would like to change the oil but I haven't come across a sure fire way of telling the correct oil spec
My car has a DPF and some sources say
Where as others say 5w 30 or 5w40
I live in the UK and the car will be used for family use...
Hi guys I'm trying to get to the bottom of a issue I've been having with my car for a few weeks now, after many hours researching and a few trips down the garage, plus a few hundred quid later I'm still at a loss with it.
I started having issues with loss of power, I have a 2013 model zafira...
I have an old 2006 banger of an astra which I use for half year when I'm in the UK, otherwise it just sits on the drive. The last couple of years the Turbo would cut out randomly when driving, and when to get it working again I just had to turn off the car and on again.
But this year I got...
