UK Auto Repair Questions?
Any warning lights come up at all on the dash since or prior to the issue?
How do you mean shudders,does it do this at stationary? like a vibration or the car bunny hopping on take off?
Normally with these transmissions they have their own ecu if you like..you dont mention if its the semi automatic easy tronic..they will always put up and F warning on the dash if the easytronic motors are failing or not changing gears..mechanically other then the easytronic side they dont give much issue,as long as the oils changed in them every 40,000...Do you have code reader at all? if you can plug it in and then drive it to see if you can replicate the fault or see if the check engine light comes on then refresh your code reader still pluged in of course,but dont cycle the ignition as you may wipe the fault from the ecu and restart and see what codes are set..that way you'll get a little insight into what type of fault it is or idea...to me petrol i asume? check engine light it likely to be engine related..maybe a igntion coil breaking down..isnt uncommon to come across on corsa's of that generation.
Yes easytronic (automated manual ) the ignition coil is easy..lift the engine cover off..coil underneath.2 hex/allen bolts..one multiplug at the right hand side of the coil..pull the coil pack out..the coil serves all cylinders...but its best in my opinion to try and get te fault the surfae..the coil pack isnt the cheapest of things..certainly if not backed up with evidence as and when the engine light comes on and having the codes..you could of course pull the coil pack out and inspect the inside the rubberboots on the end of the coil..taking care not to loose the small springs inside,as they serve to allow the voltage from the coil reach the spark plugs..seen alot of corsa's build up powdery white residue inside them or oil or even water filling the sparkplug tubes..might be something to look at?
