A similar thing happend to me turns out it was the idle rev cold switch thing>
basically the switch which provides more fuel and revs when the car is cold, so that when you start the car it doesnt just die off.
the switch itself is a bit mechanical and is perhaps jammed on the full on position. If it happens more when the car heats up. then it is this switch.

what you can do is start your car one cold morning and see how high the revs are, if its still high then its probablly not the switch

SOURCE: My Opel Corsa dies down during driving, it will only start again after 7 to 10 mins, l have no clue whats happening.

No idea offhand to be honest i would need my head under the bonnet to know what wrong .could be anything from the gauze filter in the fuel tank on the bottom of the fuel pump becoming chocked up and leaving the car allows it to drop away to a faulty pump overheating or the contacts ,maybe even a ignition module overheating ,Best advice is ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as normally these early opel corsas with the 4 cylinder engine are bullet proof they are even valve free if the timing belt snaps .

There are many things that can cause this, each will set a fault code in the computer control module of the engine and drivetrain (both are fully electronically controlled). So you must have a fault code test run to read these codes and then diagnose the cause(s)

2005 Opel Corsa lite switches off with irregular revs


Front right lower side is the crank sensor ,in line with the crankshaft ,could be this playing up although i have had many problems with this type of engine ,one problem is the computer bolted to the engine ,seem to suffer heat fatigue ,another problem i cannot explain is it just will not start and for this i fit a crank sensor from the earlier version with the toothed front pulley and support then cut the wires from the crank sensor and run them to the one at the front of the engine but they are polarised on the wires so if it doesnt start reverse the wires to the crank sensor ,Now no doubt iam wrong as ever but i do think that the crank becomes magnatised and its affecting the sensor so by moving it to the front pulley it eliminates this problem .

I drive a 2006 Opel corsa lite. it revs itself up to 3000 when i clucth approaching a stop sign and it doesnt go off, just revs up then a few seconds then goes down, does it again while i stop.


I'm not sure if you have an idle air control valve or not, but my mustang did the exact same thing.
I replaced the IAC and the problem was gone.

Rpm and acceleration problem


throttle sensor fault. might be cleanable if removed. also could be a damaged idle valve, might be staying open this cal also give high revs. and tap and it will go down as its sticking. acceleration is the throttle sensor i may have blank spots. removing it and spraying in the switch breather hole and shake the cleaner around and turning it at the same time should clean the sensor. then shake and leave to drain out the cleaner. idle valve you will need to remove it and clean ti with some carb cleaner and a brush like toothbrush, clean it thorley out push the pin in and out to make sure its not sticking at same time spray it. then when clean leave to dry. then refit them. hope this helps
