I no this post is from ages ago but I had the same problem with my 1 liter corsa kept on bogging out when cold an stalling on low revs and reversing up hills until the engine was warm I ended up getting under Bonet and my inlet manifold was a bit wobbly an came off the engine block a few mm it turned out the bolts had snapped off witch was causing it to come away from the engine causing the engine to stall cause there wasn’t anuth vacume in the engine so I just got an new inlet manifold with bolts because I couldn’t find any bolts on there own I had to use a blowtorch to heat the bolts up after I removed the manifold to get the bolts out an now runs spot on I would recommend if you do this to clean your throttle body at the same time as doing this as you have to take that off anyway

Welcome to ccuk, Dazed. That's handy info but this is a long-dead thread. Why not copy it and write it as a "One-litre manifold fix" new thread? I'm sure it would be appreciated.

Reading this thread makes me a little concerned about Des, is he not supposed to chug like a diesel when reversing?
