    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

    Top end tapping ..

    Hi Andy.....hope you are well? The tapping noise is usually a sign that the oil is not at it's best, and also maybe worth using a flush through the engine when you do an oil change. A good quality oil and of the correct grade should resolve this issue. It sounds like it could be a leaking cam cover responsible for the oil leak so I would programme this to be replaced at the same time as the oil change maybe? Keep us in the loop as to how it all goes. Cheers, Trevor

    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.

    Vibration on idle and revving

    SOunds very much like an inbalance on the flywheel or clutch plate (which would be unsprung for DMF) or the input shaft bearing not being a snug fit in the end of the crankshaft possibly? Alternatively it could be an issue with the engine misfiring slightly and being accentuated through the solid flywheel?

    (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

    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?

    Auto

    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.

    If there is a light tapping from cold and then disappears as soon as the oil reaches the top end then it is nothing too much to worry about. It may be worth replacing the engine oil for a quality oil of the correct specifications and grade to try to eliminate the rattle.
