It seems this only happens when the car warmed up about 1/2 hour driving.we been on the Internet and it said about changing the coil pack. Please can you put me in the right direction

Hi there good evening to you and sorry for the delayed response Ok from your description I would suspect a fault within the ignition system The 1.4 petrol varoebt is prone to coil pack and plug issues so this would be the first port of call The coil packs can be very temperamental on the corsa and we seem to see a influx of them failing from time to time A non manufactor coil pack is a lot cheaper than the Vauxhall one so I would advise starting with a new set of plugs and a coil pack as they are a very common cause of this type of issue Also something to look out for with this concern would be a loss /drop in the coolant level (coolant may be entering the cylinder when engine has warmed up Check the coolant level for any signs of low level If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice evening Brian
