    Hi, I took my car (2009 Corsa 1.3 CDTi (diesel)) in for an MOT a week ago and was told it had an oil leak. Must've sprung recently because I check my oil levels often and they'd never dropped. Checked them after being told of the leak and the level is now at around 2/3 of the dipstick. The...

    Tailgate central locking is not working. Fuse is OK. I have replaced the Tailgate Solenoid, I have eliminated the boot switch by shorting with wire. All 4 doors work fine with the remote fob and dashboard switch. Just the tailgate is faulty - and so is my back from climbing through the rear...

    Hi, Im looking to add an aftermarket air filter onto my corsa, im not too bothered about any performance gains from this, and I know they are negligable.

When you turn the ignition on the fuel pump keeps going for over 5 minutes, and if u try to start the car before it fully primes...

It will then stop my windows from going up and down - but if I never adjusted my mirrors in the first place then...
