  Having a break.
Posted by: Rusty2009 - 13:th-Dec-2017, 08:05:27 - Forum: Site updates - Replies (6)

I would just like to let all members know I am going to be taking a break for a bit due to some personal issue's which I don't want to go into at this time.

This may mean there is a delay in processing threads / posts that fall into the moderation que.

This will also result in a delay in a response to any PM's that are sent me.

I'd like thank-you for your understanding at this time.

  Can't get in gear - clutch problem?
Posted by: klargon - 9:th-Dec-2017, 16:21:11 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - No Replies

Howdy!  Got in the car last night and it would not go into gear (meant I had to run to the football instead!).  Can stick it in gear when the engine isn't running.  If I put it in gear before starting, I can't get out of that gear.  I'm assuming this is a clutch problem, but I haven't noticed any indication of a problem developing.  I drove it for about 80 miles the previous night.  I have, however, been intermittently getting a Service ESP warning on the dash for the past week or two.  It's obviously pretty cold at the moment - I'm not sure if this could have triggered/exacerbated an issue.  Any ideas what the issue is likely to be, and if there's anything I can do to get it in a drivable state so I can get it to a garage?

It's a 2010 2.0 CDTI Elite.  About 40k miles.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

  Car Plans for 2018
Posted by: sparkyscfc74 - 6:th-Dec-2017, 15:50:52 - Forum: General Chat - Replies (3)

I thought I’d start a new thread to see what car plans people had for next year!
At the moment this is what I’ve got planned or want to do next year.
First will be fitting my DAB+ add on for my Android head unit I’m having for Christmas.
Then in January for my birthday I’m getting an MTech short shifter.
A K&N air filter is next on the list followed by a Maxton gloss black spoiler cap.
In July, my MOT will be due so a service along with timing belt and water pump will have to be done which will be the biggest expense of the year
The other thing I really want done is a refurb on my alloys along with a colour change to either pewter or light anthracite
It’ll be nice to see what everyone else has planned and I’m sure something will inspire me to spend even more money

  2013 GTC 1.6t engine under tray
Posted by: Padster - 6:th-Dec-2017, 15:48:03 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (4)


Quick question - Should a 2013 Astra GTC 1.6t petrol have a plastic under tray? I was filling the screen wash in my car and suddenly realised I could see the ground beneath my engine.

I can't remember my last car not to have one.
