New corsa 65 limited edition sluggish pull in first gear

Post by Help me » Wed Jan 27, 2016 11:36 pm

New corsa limited edition 65 plate. Had the car about 5 months and have noticed that the car isnt pulling away in first as it did before. Clutch realised gas and it used to fly but now and then it just revs with very little pull in first. Any one else have this problem? Also not sure if the turbo kicks in on first gear due to this.
Thanks

You're not the only one, mine definitely has something wrong in my own opinion. I don't have a turbo but now my car struggles to go into 2nd gear/3rd gear at times, so I go to change gear, push it where it would normally go and now it stops... I don't notice and lift the clutch to a crunching noise because it isn't completely in. Even at stand still and going through the gears, 2nd is noticeably harder to get in than the others.

But I do think my power is somewhat reduced at times when pulling away and I don't completely understand why.

When I first got mine I used to struggle a lot with 3rd gear but it eventually got much better,if it's the m32 gearbox that vx use its also had problems with the mokka too

Don't think vx use the m32 anymore. It was a 6speed box rated at 150bhp but the fitted it to cars that had that power. The box then got too hot and the bearings failed. I was under the impression they no long use the m32 for that reason

M32 was like " chocolate tea pot " as quoted by corsa d owners. It felt lumpy and not smooth at all.

My 2ND gear is crap. Had a service recently and mentioned it they said the gear "cable"had been adjusted too the mechanics delight. Must say it felt brilliant and smooth but then the next day it's back to normal. Next time there taking the undercarriage off and looking deeper into it. So just need book it in.

Drove home today from work and car is perfect. Awesome pull in first gear. But every now and then it gets sluggish in first. Meaning every other day. Noticed that the clutch doesn't realse smoothly sometime as wellwhen this happens.

I have the exact same problem, very slow pulling away in first gear but accelerates well in all other gears. I also struggle with gears sticking and wondered if it was just because it was new, it seems ok at times and then other times really having to push hard to get into 3rd gear.
