    Had a chuffing noise (almost like a steam train) for a while now, took it in thinking it was a bad injector, was told it was the swirl flaps. Had a swirl flaps removed and deleted and noise was gone when I picked it up. Been away for a couple days and just got in and it’s still there but goes...

    Took the Parkinsons Warrior out it's first run in weeks, Sri 150 on mostly A roads. Forgot how much I enjoy driving it in comparison to the wife's auto focus. Thought I managed some good numbers

    Hey all, I hope you are all well and preparing for this upcoming lockdown 2.0? I thought I'd share a video I made on my dad's Insignia. I quite like how comfortable and quite his model was!

    Hi. I have a 2011 Astra J 1.4 (Non-turbo) SRi and posted here a few days ago about a wobbly clutch. Was advised it was pedal box and that has been confirmed with a visit to Vauxhall I was just wondering how urgently this would need to be repaired? And if it needs a new box or the current one can...

    This thread is split into two questions: first, my brakes are shocking. The braking power reminds me of a train, under emergencies, it simply does not slow down. I had a slight weeping from the clutch which helped bleed the brakes so it may or may not slow down. However, ever since the slave...

I've tried the Petro Putty stuff but one of the holes started leaking when i started the engine after leaving the putty to cure for 24 hours. So i will need to buy a replacement fuel tank. Would all...

    Hi all I've started to experience some problems with my Vauxhall Astra SRI 2005 1.8 Petrol (H Chassis), and me and my mechanic have more or less boiled it down to a faulty (or soon to be dead) ECU. Now it all began with the O2 Bank 1 Sensor 2 Code arriving some place between Dublin and Belfast...
