    • Hi all hope you are all well and keeping safe.  in the last couple of days I have replaced the fan/ utility belt and installed a new belt tensioner on a 2007/8 Vauxhall Astra 1.4 petrol and everything seems ok, however, the belt squeals when the steering wheel is turned in either direction and sometimes when the engine is first started I have checked the tensioner fittings and everything looks and feels sound.  Can anyone offer me some pointers / advice. Thanks in advance. Jim
    • Hi just joined today I am 67 years young and I help my son and his partner with the maintenance of their car and I hope to be able to get some help / support with info and advice to help them keep the car serviceable and fit for use.  I am a retired engineer and used to be a self employed car Mechanic back in the 80's 90's so I have a good background in car repairs and maintenance, however, my knowledge of modern cars can be a little limited so I hope other members will be forgiving and tolerant with me and I look forward to chatting with members.
    • Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have brought a mk4 astra van 1.7cdti sportive. It had a cut out issue. I can drive it for a while then it will cut out and start back up after 10/15 seconds, but will only rev to 3 1/2  I’ve changed throttle body, housing, Egr and pipe to the engine as it was coming up egr and maf fault. While doing this a blank plate (coke can) dropped out of the egr pipe. After this the van was fine for about 2 miles then back to same issue. Someone mentioned crankshaft sensor so today I have changed that. Again 2miles down the road it cut out and again it started back up. I gave it some power to see how it would react and it blew the front rubber pipe of the throttle body! However I can still use full throttle and it’s not flagging up on the dash or on a scan!  Thanks in advance!
    • Hi Dan....welcome to the Forum That's a varied collection of cars you've owned over the years, personally I was a big fan of the mk3 Rover 200 🙂 Hope you enjoy your time with the Astra and good to have you onboard
