My Corsa 1.4 utility cut off the engine within 1 min after starting.


Asked by May 07, 2013 at 07:29 PM about the 2008 Opel Corsa

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After servicing my opel Corsa 1.4 pik-up, I cleaned the engine with the presurerised water mostly focusing on the gearbox and bottom of the ingine. With start-up my car started to cut off the engine within 1 min after starting. the direction of the petrol filter is correct. Testing of spark plugs was positive, but the plugs were wet with oil or petro on the threaded end part as if the plugs were not working. and are still new. What can be the course.

the cause of your problem might be the coil pack which is realy sensitive on the car you can also try resetting the computer box because it might have a problem on it because it sensed a problem in the engine when it got wet

on this one too, you know on your air box, there is something that is like a switch I don't know what is it called but on that switch there is a small pipe that suck air if that pipe is disconnected it will cut or sometimes the idler will increase but mostly it cuts the engine. also check the crankshaft sensor if it in correct position.
