    Hi everyone , I’m getting loss of power on my Zafira 1.9 ctdi 2008. I wouldn’t say it’s full limp mode and can be intermittent. The engine light is on and fault codes 22759 and 242F75. From my research it’s pointing towards the dpf or egr valve . I’d be grateful for any advice as money is right...

    Hey guys, I'm having an issue with my Astra where on the first start there is reduced power and revs wont go beyond 3000. If I turn off the engine and restart the car it is fine and revs like normal. Plugged a scanner in and no codes are returned. Has anyone experienced this before? Is this a...

    Hello! Seem to have a boost issue on my wifes Zafira B cdti 150. No warning lights or fault codes stored at all. No black smoke or anything indicating a dpf or egr issue. The EGR was changed for a new one around 5 months ago but that threw up a fault code when it died (i think it just...

    Car is mk4 (-98) Astra 1,6l 16v (about 260,000 km). It started to use more oil, and quite suddenly also more gas. I had ignored some "knocking" in the engine until car lost some power. It always started and I could drive it but going uphill became suddenly tough. The engine had slight burning...

    Hi Guys, New member so I hope someone can help. 2011 Insignia Diesel 2.0. 92K on the clock. Basically I'm a keen amateur with about 20-years of home maintenance experience. So, the EGR cooler jacket had a leak, changed it BUT got a bit cocky and didn't mark up to vacuum pipes etc, just...

    Basically the car broke down at the weekend. All manner of warning lights came on the dash and I lost power steering etc. The garage thinks the cause is a blown control unit behind the dash and believe that it is due to aftermarket wiring, ie a mobile eye device (accident preventative...

I've had my eye on the MPG which recently seems to have dipped and yesterday on acceleration there was a sudden loss of power followed by an on dash message saying to "service soon". Its also nowhere near its service which isn't...

    I have a 2011 Corsa D 1.3cdti, when started from cold it is very sluggish with no power for the first 2 miles and then it returns to normal, this has only happened the last 2 to 3 days.

    Hi everyone, I'm new in here and reading some of your comments has me concerned! I have a Vivaro 14 plate with no issues so far, do I need to take this to a main dealer to get the water ingress problem looked at? I couldn't see if this effects the 2014 vivaro's. Also anyone any good at fault...

    Hi there. I have a 54 plate Corsa C. A couple of weeks ago an orange engine symbol illuminated on the dashboard. This warning light has subsequently gone out. However, the engine suddenly loses its power when driving or accelerating now. You can have your foot flat to the floor and it won't...
