Posted by: chuzzle359 - 14:th-Apr-2021, 18:23:08 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - No Replies

I'm thinking of buying a coolant pressure test kit to investigate coolant issues on my 2010 Astra J - These kits seem to come with a variety of radiator cap adaptors so does anyone know if there's commonly one for Vauxhall/Opel in these kits ?

  Engine oil level low ,Add oil
Posted by: Rocky33 - 14:th-Apr-2021, 12:56:53 - Forum: Mechanical - No Replies

Hi everyone ,interested to know if someone have had this issue before ,Yesterday i was on a motorway  , warning came on the dash board "engine oil level low add oil ,the first thing i did obviously was to check dipstick level and it showed the level was fine .I had already booked the car for oil and filter change this saturday before this warning ,last oil changed was 5K km /6 months ago.i did lot of short journeys last 2 months so decided to have it changed after 6 months as oil life  is sitting at 12 percent.after checking dipstick,i initially thought it could be the moisture in oil which might have evaporated and sensor might have acted funny but now after little online search ,i have seen that it could be a faulty sensor in oil pan ? This is the first time ever happened in 3 years ownership of this car.Do you think i should ask garage to change oil sensor ,is it expensive labour job ? I dont see any fault codes so not sure if its worth spending the extra changing the sensor if it is working fine ,i dont see any oil leaks inside or around engine bay ,so far it has happened only once ,does it point towards something serious if it is not just a sensor?  Engine is 1.7 CDTI  ,A17DTS ,Mileage 136000km Thanks Guys .

  Please advise - Z16LET engine (1.6 turbo, 132 kW) - is it a direct or indirect port?
Posted by: UseThe4s - 13:th-Apr-2021, 09:21:23 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (2)

Hello guys,

searching a lot I was not able to find if the Z16LET - 1.6 turbo, 132 kW petrol engine is a direct or an indirect port engine. I suppose that this 180 HP engine that was used in the 2nd gen of Astras H an then in Astras J is an indirect port petrol engine. And I suppose the 200 HP 1.6 turbo petrol engine that came later is already a direct port engine. Can anyone please confirm or specify this? Thank you.

Hi guys had a guy clip my mirror earlier and the glass. Popped out but didn't smash... Tried to put it back but all the insides are snapped... Can this be replaced or do I need a whole mirror?

  Air Con Hiss
Posted by: Craig2305 - 12:th-Apr-2021, 17:46:16 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (3)

Hi

My air con has started to make a hissing noise when it is switched on and is no longer cold. Is it worth trying to do a top up or is it likely I have a leak?
It’s a 64 plate and done 46k miles. I’ve never had it topped up before.

Thanks

It's really easy to join in and there are two prizes up for grabs - one winner will be chosen by us and one will be chosen by you based on LIKES.

  Fan speed button skickers?
Posted by: 75chrisc - 11:th-Apr-2021, 23:00:15 - Forum: Request for information - Replies (1)

Hi, I was wondering if there was anything like a sticker i could buy and replace the worn out fan speed buttons?

I have been able to find some for my other car (Audi A3 8l) but obviously a different size/shape and font.

Thanks in advance.
