    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, 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 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...

    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...

    Bought second hand Zafira (2016, 1.4T Petrol) in July. On September got a warning light for overheating engine. Checked coolant level and saw it was low, assumed dealer had neglected to fill it, but to make sure put it into a local garage, who told me I actually needed to replace the overflow...

    So I have a 2006 Astra 1.6 Twinport that overheats. It has had a new coolant sensor and new coolant however nothing has changed. The fans refuse to kick in even at 112° however the fans have been tested and do work! Any ideas on a next move?

    Hi, I've noticed a few issues with my car lately, and I don't know if they are all linked or just a coincidence. I have a 2016 Insignia Sri 2.0 CDTi eco I pay quite a lot of attention to my MPG (average and instant), and have noticed that on some trips (not all), the instant mpg is much lower...

    Hi folks, I’m hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction I bought this as a cam chain guide failure, put a recon head in it, new chain kit/head gasket etc and it’s running great. Half way through the job I found why the chain guides had prematurely failed - it had got HOT...

    Hello I bought a second hand car (Opel Astra J 2012 1.7CDTI 110hp) and found out it has a problem. It gives a false overheating warning where the temperature goes from 90 to 130 degrees. The power of the engine reduces and I go from 120 km to 90 km per hour. I went to the garage and they...

    I have an Insignia 2.0T petrol Elite Nav 4x4 with the A20NHT engine. It has been overheating that started with boiling coolant on a motorway journey last summer. So far I have changed the Expansion tank cap because it was clearly not holding pressure and thermostat although the one that came out...

    So on Friday I was driving home and my car started over heating. Usually it takes the car about 15-20 minutes to heat up properly and always sits on 90. But minutes after driving the car it has almost heated up then starts over heating. I have to sit with the heaters on to keep the gauge down...

    hi there My Vectra overheated yesterday (I had not noticed until it cut out). There was a shhh shhh noise when accelerating for about 1 mile before this. I was following another car we had just ironically collected from the garage and I thought it was coming from that car but turns out it was...

    Any help would be appreciated. I have a Vauxhall Meriva B 2010. Twice in the past few weeks whilst sitting in very heavy traffic the engine has overheated. Blowing the fans with hot air has cooled it down. When the engine has been overheating a Code 4 error has came up which the handbook states...

    Hi, sometimes after a short ride I hear the engine fan come on when I'm out the car. The temperature gauge stays at the middle so I'm not sure if it's over heating? It's had a recent service however I still hear this noise, not all the time just sometimes. Thank you :) P.S I took the car for...
