Opel Corsa 1.0T-Ecoflex 2015 model

Post by Stax23 » Mon May 03, 2021 8:52 am

Hi all, I'm looking for some help. My car has been standing now for a little over a month now and am having serious withdrawal symptoms, I want my car back😪

The following issues were initially noted, and then she's been standing ever since.

Massive loss in power
Refuses to go over 2000rpm
She is smoking badly (white smoke) but not on decompression
Guzzling petrol
Using a lot of oil

The following steps were taken at the time:

Have replaced the spark plugs (not oiled up)
Replaced the oil filter
Oil change
Air filter
Have tested the coil pack all fine

Removed and cleaned the 2 camshaft Sensors and the pvc valves.

I was advised that my turbo could have a carbon build up and have since used turbo cleaner, however the problem remains, with the addition of a a new noise almost between a suction and a click, more or less under the heat shield of the turbo, on decompression.

No fault noted on the computer.

Please can someone help me I'm desperate.🙏🙏🙏🙏

How many miles has it done?
Any warning lights on dash?

The 1.0 engine is known for Piston failure on cylinder 3..might be worth doing a compression test..

She's still a baby, maybe 65 000kms on the clock, no warning lights on the dash.

Sounds like turbo has failed.

You need to get the turbo off and get it checked out ASAP.

Don't drive the car as you could cause damage to the engine
