    On start up

    That sounds like fun with your radio. My brother in law had a Nissan primera estate, and when you turned left the volume went up, but it would never come down low when you turned right at straightened up. Fun on roundabouts.

    Top end tapping ..

    Thanks Trevor. That certainly is better news than I was expecting. Going to get oil and filter tomorrow, and hopefully, if weather allows, change at weekend. Will also see about can cover gasket. Its had a tiny oil leak since I've had it, but never been able to find it. Oil wasn't noticeably going down, so I just kept a vigilante eye open. What would you recommend to use for the flush through?? And yes I will keep you in the loop. Regards Andy.

    Vibration on idle and revving

    Hopefully the replacement flywheel should resolve the issue....but also maybe worth checking the clutch assembly for anything that could cause an imbalance. The noise is on overrun so more than likely a loose turbo/intercooler hose clip or even a slightly split hose creating an escape of pressurised boost

    I would certainly be interested in seeing some parts lists too. Need shocks and front wishbones as a starter. Will also be looking for some decals as well, but they're not as important at the moment.

    Engine Breather Problem

    Thanks for the detailed feedback. The fact that air is escaping through the air intake could be that the inlet valve is still slightly open due to lower pressure not completely at BDC which would naturally occur when the pressure is high and the piston is forced downwards. Alternatively, if you had some way of securing the crank at BDC then try again. With the camcover emitting air, this again could be the piston at mid-bore which could have some ovality in the cylinder which is allowing air to escape past the rings. Try a small amount of oil in the bores to recheck the compression test to see if it improves the reading on the low cylinders.

    (Help) Vauxhall Zafira 1.8 coolant problem

    i would suspect the coolant pressure cap as being faulty. If it cannot hold the pressure beyond boiling point then the seal fails and releases pressure leading to coolant loss and overheating....simple and cheap fix, worth trying first

    Funny windows issue

    Hi, I guess it may be a faulty switch. It is possible the contacts have become worn or it may be bad wire connections. I would pull the door card far enough to get your hand behind and see if you can reach the connections. Try and wiggle them a bit, sometimes they can corrode and not work properly. If that doesn't work you may have to take it out and check the contacts. There may be a spring inside so watch it doesn't pop out. Check the contacts and use a bit of wet and dry to clean them if they look pitted. My previous Astra had faulty rear door electrics which was due to the wires becoming work hardened after the door being opened and closed lots of times. I don't know if yours has central locking but if that and the door speaker are working you could probably rule that out. Try giving the wire a wiggle where it goes into the door while holding the switch. You never know! If you take the switch out you can check it first using an electric meter to check the resistance, that should tell you if it is the switch is ok or not. If your not very DIY I'm sure someone you know will have an electric meter and be able to check it for you and at the same time you can check power is getting to the switch through the wires. The only other thing I can suggest is check the fuse. I would think that would stop both front switches from working so I would probably rule this out. This is what I would do but if you find the fault is the switch then you could just buy another rather than pull it to bits. Good luck and let us know how you go on.
  18. Hi, it's a bit hard to tell from the bottom picture but is the area at the bottom of the picture solid or is there an opening into the body work. With there being leaves in there and quite a lot of water I would guess somehow it is getting in through the wheel arches. I would have a look to make sure that the shields are properly fixed in place and are not loose around the edges.

    Car stops accelerating now will not start

    Oh dear...that can be expensive. It's not like you drove through a deep puddle or anything that you could claim on your insurance as water damage?

    I would certainly take it to a transmission specialist and determine whether it needs a fluid and filter change. If it is the bands wearing down then the fluid will be a dirty brown colour and smell of burnt toast, if it is still red and clean then it just may be low on the fluid level.

    Insignia DPF Issues

    I think if it was me i would take legal advice from the CAB or a solicitor to find out your consumer rights regarding the ownership of a car that is not fit for purpose. Seems unreasonable to have bought a car you cannot drive and that has been substantially modified with new components with no result at the end of it. Let us know how it all goes
