  7. On replacing both camshaft sensor solenoids the exhaust solenoid had a minute amount of silvery metal around it???? Should I be worried? Insignia Sri petrol 2009 1.8litre with 104k. Car runs silently with no issues now. It was stalling, had rough idle and serious drop in mpg.....
  8. ***UPDATE*** I have found out that the Astra G mk4/5, doesn't actually have a separate switch/sender for the electric cooling fan in the radiator. It is however integrated in with the sensor for the temperature gauge, and apparently the ECU senses the spike in temperature and tells the fan to kick in. But as mine isn't doing this because my gauge is not reading correctly, the ECU isn't sensing the engine temperature properly, hence why I've had some over heating issues.

  14. Hi Nev, and welcome to the forum. Have you tried replacing the battery in the key fob? I had the same problem with my key fob and central locking system. When I replaced the battery it worked fine, but then the key got dropped, and the battery carrier in the key broke away from the circuit board. So at the moment I'm doing it the old fashioned way with the key in the lock. Also if the battery is ok, then you may need the key re programming back to the car. Hope this is of help. Regards Andy.

  20. Hi Sam....welcome to the Club We wouldn't be present at the show unfortunately, Covid didn't help with shows in general as not having the take up as pre-Covid attendance and will maybe take some time for confidence to build with the public turning up at shows (if they haven't already been cancelled for this year)
  21. Thats a strange one, could be it be the compressor not operating as efficiently as it should, albeit the clutch is operating and the gas is present but just not up to par?
  22. Hi.....welcome to the Club You can get a small trolley jack in a carry box at a reasonable price from Halfords that will do the job nicely https://www.halfords.com/tools/garage-workshop/axle-stands-trolley-jacks/
  23. I would not try running it any more as if the coolant has entered the combustion chambers then it could lead to melting the pistons or even hydraulic lock
  24. You could try looking at the bottom of the radiator area possibly?
  25. That is a wonderful collection of manuals for what was a great car for that era How much are you looking for them?
  26. Probably best to shop around on the internet and maybe widen your search radius to get a better deal. Also, just because it is cheap doesn't mean it is good.....need to ensure it complies to all UK standards for towing and the electrics are correctly connected to the vehicle
  27. Hi....welcome to the Club I would start by carrying out a compression test on all the cylinders as it could be a sticking piston ring or similar which is not releasing until it has warmed up and expanded
