Re: Engine Ticking/Rattle

For anyone looking at buying another breather valve, don’t make the same mistake as me and buy the wrong one! So did you change it yourself or took a car to a Vx garage? I changed it myself. I am having the same problem, I am eagerly waiting to hear regarding the breater valve. Is it something you ...

Re: Engine Ticking/Rattle

Same problem here, ticking that comes on when engine is up to temperature. Find that it goes after about 3000rpm or if travelling at speed. Very frustrating ticking noise but I’m hoping the solutions mentioned above will fix the problem for me. I’ll have a listen and find out!

Re: Tyre pressure monitor system showing wrong tyre pressure?

The garage I took the car to in order to replace the flat tyre have swapped the wheels around for me. I’ve bought a TPMS reset tool anyway just in case.

Thanks all.

Replacement tyre repair kit sealant

Hello,

Any ideas where I can get some replacement sealant/whether I need to get some genuine Vauxhall stuff or whether any old stuff will do? I've looked into getting a spare wheel instead but that seems a right old faff as well.

Thanks!

Tyre pressure monitor system showing wrong tyre pressure?

Hello all. I've had quite an eventful evening, with a flat tyre. The tyre pressure monitoring system works great in that I knew I had a puncture, but it was showing the wrong tyre with low tyre pressure! It came up on the dashboard that the back right tyre had low tyre pressure, but it was actually ...

Re: Hello

I’ve a 1.2 petrol and my fuel economy is awful - averages at about 35mpg, despite smooth driving and early gear changes. A lot of my driving to work is uphill all the way though, and that’s the only place I’ve been driving to recently, but nevertheless I’ve always struggled with fuel economy in mine.
