  1. Small/Medium Vauxhall Cars Area
    Hi guys, I've got a bit of an oil leak on my Corsa and I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction. I noticed some oil under the car this morning, I've found the leak and tried tightening the nut it's leaking from which hasn't helped. I haven't gone mad with it because...

    Hi Guys, I have a 2009 CDTI Insignia with an oil leak around the 3rd injector which is filling up oil around all 4. I was wondering is there a rubber O Ring near the top of the injector or would this be caused by a damaged rocker cover seal. Thanks in advance.

    So this has been on my mind a while, so trying to get it resolved. Zafira B 2011 A17DTJ engine so 1.7 CDTI Ecoflex. Oil is around the front engine mount and beside exhaust leaving engine, so in the turbo area. Looking up you can see oil splatters all around this section, but I'm struggling to...

    My Zafira GSi (Z20LET) is suffering from oil leaks - Cam cover, turbo pipes, sump, etc. If I replace a seal the pressure finds the next weakest point. So far I've checked / replaced: - Compression - Looks OK with 170psi on all 4 cylinders (dry test); no smoke from exhaust at all - Turbo...

    Hi guys, New to the forums, just wondering if anyone knows the location of the oil pressure switch on the z20let engine as I have an oil leak and suspect the pressure switch may be the culprit. Recently I replaced the rocker cover gasket as that was also leaking, this did solve the main oil...

    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...

    I have an oil leak on top of the intercooler pipe. I can notice my turbo is slow. Takes longer to pick up speed and visable oil leak. I think I need a some kind of sleave or seal where the pipe connects to the gear box, does anyone know where I can get one? Instead of buying a whole new...
