Thread produced to show the range of exhausts available for the corsa (or others if you fancy). Idea is to save people searching about and posting threads all the time asking which exhaust/what noise etc.
Anyway, post up a vid of the exhaust,
say what it is (irmy, sportex etc)
This sticky is for members to post up their recent rolling road results. Please use the following format.
Peak Power(bhp) at engine/wheels: 98.32 / 77.72

a) Using a higher RON fuel will prevent engine knock
b) Using a higher RON fuel will give me better performance
c) Using a higher RON fuel will give me better economy
a) Keeping this simple, let's say YES. There are situations where this is not the case but it...

Hi I have a corsa 1.4 twinport and emissions light is on would a blowing exhaust cause it to come on .it's blowing at the flexi pipe
I don't think it's the tappets. Although it does seem to be there all the time (especially under load). But i can't help thinking it's something else. Could it be the timing chain?
The car has only done 64k miles but if it's going to need a new chain i'm wondering if it's going to be time to...
Hi I have a emissions light on my corsa c 1.4 sxi and the code says lean mixture and a purge vacuum solenoid valve malfunction has anyone had this before and are they easy to change.
Just about to start this and have most the parts needed for the conversion I've been told that I need an early Mk4 Astra cable throttle pedal with the Saab Lump being cable throttle I've also being told that its not a bolt on job and needs welding on is that true as it doesn't sound a great...
Does anyone know if the backbox from a 1.4, 1.8 or the 1.3cdti backbox will fit on a 1.7 cdti?
I want to upgrade the backbox but cant find one that suggests its for a 1.7 cdti (unless i pay silly money)
As the title suggests, I have a problem with my 2006 Corsa C 1.2L Twinport Z12XEP. (It's silver, if that helps). With the help of this forum, I've kept my car running pretty well. It's regularly serviced and it's been a great car, up until the past few weeks. It had a service back in the beginning...
As stated by Warren G in this post I think that the exhaust manifold of an A14XER will fit into a Z14XEP.
And since A14NET is a turbod A14XER the exhaust manifold of an A14NET may fit a Z14XEP as well?
If this is correct, i am stuck with the turbo used in th A14NET manifold which got...
so I did a compression test at the weekend and all 4 cylinders came out pretty much bang on 230 psi now is this good/bad/too high etc the cars been really well maintained and currently stands at 120k miles
i bought a corsa c , it has a receipt for the timing chain being changed about 3-4000 miles ago. i dont think the engine sounds right when reved, i know the 3 cylinder engines sound different, but this is to loud.
when googling i found threads saying if the sump wasnt removed before refitting...

Does anyone know what screws/Bolts are fitted on the Corsa C 1.2 2004 EGR and can you damage the threading if you screw them too hard?
First post so apologies in advance if I'v posted to the wrong section. I can't find a description for this particular set of symptoms in the forum.
For completeness/background, Driver's side door has long since refused to lock via the key fob. However, unlocking via key fob has always worked...
Found out the otherday that my car will roll in gear (parked with engine off in 1st gear) and took hand brake off and car rolled backwards. Never heard of any cars doing this. Car drives normal and all that. Any idea whats up and can you try this on your corsa and see if it does the same?
Has anyone upgraded the turbo on their 1.7 CDTI?
If so what turbo is the most plug and play (of course a remap would be needed and a fmic)?
would a turbo upgrade be worth it?
only asking as i am looking to upgrade to a 1.7 CDTI
so following a Camshaft siezure I replaced the cylinder head with a reconditioned one. (Z10XEP).
The engine turns over nicely but car won't start and here is where we are at :

Today I went to test drive a used Corsa C today (I've been driving my dad's Corsa D but wanted my own car). I drove round the block and the engine just didn't sound right, I suspect it was the timing chain. But as I went to go up a hill I noticed the Clutch started to slip and wouldn't go into...

ive searched everywhere for a solution but only seem to find out info on the fault if the voltage was too low
thanks in advance for any help
So, I messed up and plonked one of these onto my new linkage without knowing I can and need to adjust its length by twisting the nuts and sockets.
Will I be able to remove this without taking the entire new linkage out? It is on pretty solid so I'm not exactly sure how to pop the sockets off...
New here, Only had my 2005 1.4 Twinport Corsa C for 3 months.
I know a fair bit about cars before owning one so have done all the work needed myself thus far.
My Pressure Oil Switch is leaking. Badly.
I've already replaced this part and thought something was wrong last time i...
its been a while since I have been on here.
but i was doing some work on the corsa (putting the interior back in) and my dad put the battery back in but did it the wrong way round and smoke started billowing out from the alternator, I quickly disconnected it and turned it round and...
I was topping up my engine the other day with some oil, when I saw some grime, so I thought id try an wipe it away (inside of the engine, under the rocker cover)
so I wiped it and noticed it felt quite metallic, I pushed my finger in a bit more to see what else was there, and I guess...
Hey Guys & Galls.
I shall soon be starting a z20let conversion on my 1.2. Anyone got any tips or advice before I start? Engine & F23 gearbox has come off a zafira gsi.
So the only way my radio works is if I have the ignition switch on my 2005 corsa set to live. So whenever I'm parked up or whenever I have to wait in the car for a while I have to turn the radio on which means keeping the ignition switch on live for however long I'm waiting. So I'm wondering is it...
I've noticed my 2001 1.2 sxi is leaking a little coolant every day and dripping from the underside of the bumper. It looks to be coming from the bottom left of the radiator (if you were to be looking at the car from the front). I jacked it up and had a quick look from underneath:
Which companies make good performance cams? I'm thinking of getting so camshafts of ebay from a z12xe to get regrinded for fast road/rally use. What cost would i be looking at and what sort of performance gain? Thanks in advance

I've read countless tutorials, and videos, but each end of the fuel lines refuse to budge, despite being able to spin the filter. I don't actually understand why it seems like it's stuck...
Just changed the spark plugs on my corsa 1.0 2001 reg. she was misfiring and had codes
After I done the pedal trick.. the new plugs fixed these codes but then the car spanner light came back on and I had the code
0355 crankshaft position sensor "A"
So the car was now running in...
I've aquired a tidy little 1 lady owner low mileage 2001 1.0 corsa c and I'm tempted with a nice simple 'track' build, I'd like to do a z18xe conversion from an sri. Just wondered if anyone can help me out with some advice as to what's needed and is it reasonably straightforward?
Opel Corsa C 1.2 Twinport 2006. 1460000 KM
Today the car was hard to start. After first atempt it stops.
Pulled out the key, tryed again and at least it started putting in some pedal.
Used it for a 70 KM trip and it works without problems. I read the foult code on engine.

Hi all, I own a 1.2 six twinport and recently I have gotten a knocking noise, it sounds like it is coming from the front. Can hear it when car is in gear (no acceleration) sometimes taking it out of gear stops the noise, but I have had it out of gear too. The noise stops completely under breaking...
I posted a video here https://youtu.be/FTcttuAsPO8
Does this sound like it needs a new Timing chain because it hasnt been changed and it's done over 100k miles now.
Hi all hope everyone has had a good xmas and start 2 the new year, I'm going 2 pay someone 2 do my timing chain as its a bit more than I can do, Can you tell me if its worth getting the headgasket done the same time ?? Dont think anything is wrong with it no mayo BUT I do get white smoke more than...
Can i use the long oil filter for engine code: 19CA0955? as my engine uses the smaller one but didn't check engine code in log book first (not thinking) and got the wrong size. Can i use it or should i swap for correct size. Also read that corsas from 2003 use the long filter and mines 2004. If...
All of a sudden the car has developed a front end shaking.
Only happens when accelerating. If the car rolls, it doesn't happen.
Had the wheels off and found this...
Time to replace?
Replaced the egr valve a couple of years back and now got the same fault code back again. If I was to blank it off will I have any issues with the eml light or spanner light coming on?
It's a 2005 z14xep twinport
I have emissions light on my corsa c 1.4 i changed the maf sensor it's made no difference i now have a code p0170.when car starts it revs to 2000rpm then drops in think it's the lambda sensor.
Hi when I do peddle test I get these codes which means faulty lambda sensor.but when I use a maxiscan I only get p0170 I have changed the maf but still the same and I have emissions light on .so could it just be lambda sensor and how accurate is the peddle test
Came across this mod and wondered if it works for works on 1.7 isuzu engines.
I have recently changed the engine in my corsa c. There is a strange vibration coming from the NSF wheel area the doesnt get worse under breaking and isnt really felt through the steering wheel, my question is could I have put the clutch/ flywheel on wrong? I thought they only went on 1 way! Could...
Hello to all!
I have custom made 4-2-1 exhaust manifold for my Corsa C 1.8. After we fit exhaust in place, I have problems with lambda sensor and I can't pass MOT because of bad exhaust emissions. I also have Catalysator installed and one lambda sensor in front of CAT and one behind CAT but...
Where is the pressure regulator on my corsa? 2004 1.2. I can't find it though admittedly haven't had a huge look for it. Where is it as I'm thinking of replacing with an aftermarket one
I have an issue with my triptronic corsa c 1.2 2004 reg, so basically when my engine reaches normal temperature, my car starts to jerk/jump when I'm at very low speed e.g parking or pulling out a turning.
I have engine light on which is code p0170 , I have changed spark plugs,...

Yesterday I purchased a Corsa C 1.4 Exclusiv (2005) 45k miles on clock from a garage, he said it was from the trade, I tested it and it seemed fine, checked the engine, seemed fine, too much oil on the dipstick but I thought I'll be...
