    Astra, Corsa, Zafira, Meriva, Adam, Cascada, Agila
    Hi all, Hoping someone with knowledge can help me! My Astra J seems to be whining, altering with the revs. It's louder from the drivers seat more than anything. I've taken a short video to see if you can hear it. Also it's just been back to the dealer to have the exhaust Flexi pipe replaced...

  10. [Vectra C] [02-08] Cylinder not Working?

    Cavalier, Calibra, Vectra, Signum, Sintra & Insign
    So I have felt that on low gears that there was a lack of power and with low revs it rumbles very heavy. Having a look around my engine I tried disconnecting the cylinder switches one by one whilst engine was running so I could hear if they worked.. 1 of the cylinders (second from left) made...
