Hello,

My partner has a Corsa D 1.4 that has a constant engine management light on, splutters and drops in/out of limp mode when driving and also when going round certain corners - the engine cuts out completely, with no warning.

We have been told it was the crankshaft sensor by numerous different garages, however we have now purchased 3 different, brand new sensors, and each time I put a different one in the same happens - the car starts first time, revs to around 30,000 rpm, then immediately cuts out and the engine then won't restart until I put the old sensor back in.

I've read about Cosra C needing a throttle body clean, would this also apply to Corsa D?

If anyone could offer any insight i would really appreciate it.

Thank you.

It's obviously got to be something else if it keeps happening...

Have you checked the alternator isn't giving out?
Check the coil pack.

If there’s a light on the dash it need a code reader plugging in, you can get a cheap one from euro car parts, and see if there’s any codes for yourself but I’d look at coil pack as stated above and do a spark plug change while I was there just to be on the safe side and see if that helps.
