    Ok, so not long ago just after buying my zafira I had to change the starter, upon stripping old one, Haynes said I need to unclip oil pipes from a braket attached to starter that wasnt there, thought nothing of it. Many swear words later I got the starter out to find the ends chewed up and soon...

    hi to those reading, Currently in a horrible situation due to my Astra mk 5 1.6 petrol. Tonight about 50 miles away from home my car has had to be abandoned due to it not being able to start.

    Hi all, I’ve just had my starter motor replaced. I drove it home with no problems whatsoever and five minutes after arriving at home I have gone to start the engine again and it died completely.

    hi again, So I’ve found out that I need to replace my starter motor... now keep coming across motors which state they fit both 8v and 16v engines. Now is this correct? Could I possibly put a 16v starter motor on my 8v cdti? Would it possibly turn the car over better by putting a 16v starter...

    Hi, I recently replaced the camshaft inlet sensor with a cambiare one due to a huge lack of power and having the p0340 -04 code. Car now runs perfect with no glitches apart from starting issues, which is a bit weird Quite often when starting (but not all the time) it won't fire the first key...

    Hi all, My knowledge is limited so bear with me. I have a 2003 1.7 DTi Astravan, that has been sitting around for a while with a faulty starter motor. Today I replaced with a shiny new one, reconnected that battery, and started up the car. At first all seemed good, started up and was running...

    Turn over on my 2.0 2008 vivaro has been getting more and more sluggish in the cold weather, now it won't start or crank at all. I assumed the battery was on it's way out, but have replaced it and the new one's no different. On turning the ignition there's a click, but no crank. Or sometimes...
