20 Most Recent 2006 Opel Corsa Utility Questions & Answers

Hello Sibusiso,

(From the 2009 Corsa Owners Manual)

Your Immobilizer system checks whether the engine is allowed to start with the key being used. If the transponder in the key is recognised, the engine can be started.

The electronic immobiliser activates itself automatically after the key has been removed from the ignition switch. If control indicator "spanner light" flashes when the ignition is on, there is a fault in the system; the engine cannot be started.

Switch off the ignition and then repeat the start attempt.
If the control indicator continues flashing, attempt to start the engine using the spare key and seek the assistance of a workshop.

See 2009 Owners Manual at the link below.

wow ,im soory to tell u that litle can be done ,but try to check the valve underneath that is activated by weight or load, as it supply rear brakes with braking fluid might be faulty cuasing ur braking force to be more as if its laoded, most likely cause is how u have adjusted your hand brake, if its too sensitive , it will cuase ur rear wheels to lock, which means they get activated first then ur front brakes, re adjust your hand brake to 3 clicks , not one.
thank you

How do you know this? Any fault codes? what is the fuel pressure?

The cause of high idle are vacuum leaks or a bad or dirty Idle air control. Check pcv valve to see if its working properly. pinch off the hose that supplies the PCV valve. The engine speed should drop slightly. If the engine returns to a normal idle speed, the PCV valve should be replaced. The Idle air control regulates engine rpms.

Check your oil dipstick. If there's a grey/creamy sludge on it that means water is finding its way into the oil system. Your cylinder head gasket/cylinder head is faulty.

Fill your coolant bottle. Leave the top off. Start the engine and watch the coolant level. To begin with, you will see air bubbles escaping. This is normal. If bubbles continually appear or the coolant level 'shakes' violently, this indicates that exhaust gas is finding its way into the cooling system via a cracked cylinder head/faulty head gasket. Also look at the exhaust gas - is it clouds of white? If so - that's steam from water being burnt in the engine - a head problem.

Over heating is a sign of a cracked cylinder head/faulty head gasket.

The other causes of overheating includes a stuck thermostat or a leaking/blocked radiator.

If there's no sign of a coolant leak underneath your vehicle - suspect the cylinder head gasket

that sounds like a throttle passion sensor, have you scaned OBD for any codes?

Rick mixture or stuck choke. Get it to a garage and get it on an exhaust analyser. Will save you money in the long run with the saving in fuel. I presume fuel costs as crazy in Australia as they are in the UK.
