  2. Recirculation Valve (P1243)

    Astra H
    Hey guys, recently I exerienced a flutter/turkey noise from my Astra H GTC 1.6T Z16LET and the P1243 was shown on the diagnostic. I was advised that it was the recirculation valve and I ordered one from the ebay to check it out. Has anyone used one of these 20-30 quid valves from the ebay or...

    Hi all Got a problem with the astra which occurred today - started sounding a bit weird yesterday after a sharp turn slightly too fast - power steering pump was almost screaming (only car i've ever driven where the PS pump sounds like it isn't fit for the job). Anyway this morning i got into...
  4. Astra H Engine Noise issues

    Astra H
    Hi all I posted two separate threads prior to this but thought i'd consolodate them as they may be connected. Been getting two different types of engine noise from my Astra H 04 1.6 petrol engine. The first noise is pretty much there all the time when I drive, it's like a high pitch chirp...
  5. Humming when idle/decelerating stops when braking/accelerating

    Astra H
    Hey guys! I am am new to this forum - bought a 57 reg black Astra H 1.6 (115) last saturday. The car needs some minor attention like getting the alignment done, regassing the AC, replacing cam belt etc which I will address in the due course. Today however I noticed a humming sound coming from...
  6. Loud Tapping, with engine note - can not track it down.

    Astra G
    Hello Forum, My astra has a loud tapping noise, not dissimilar to a 'tappet sound' but I can not figure out where its coming from. I have put it in the garage twice (different ones) and they simply do oil swap and say its fixed. It is not, not even slightly reduced. If I listen/probe the...
  7. Engine squeak when accelerating

    Astra H
    Hiya, I'm new to this forum, so hopefully I'm doing things in a forum friendly way.. Anyway, I drive a 2006 Astra H 1.7CDTi SRi, and I purchased it last April from some guy (private seller) I absolutely love the car, and everything about it. Apart from one thing.. I've had a constant...
  8. Intermittent clicking noise when rolling up the window once but press twice

    Astra H
    I'm having this problem, when I press to roll up the windows it will fully go up but there will be a intermittent clicking or creaking noise which it sounds like it isn't even fully up . Therefore I have to press the window button again to stop it from making the strange clicking noise and makes...
  9. Car is stationary and after 5-15 minutes, there would be a strange noise and vibratio

    Astra H
    I am not sure if it is normal or a problem but let say I am waiting for someone and my car is stationary with the engine running. After maybe 5-15 minutes or longer there would be a strange noise and a vibration which lasts for 5 seconds then stops. It doesn't happen just once but if I push the...
  10. --Turbo on the way out?

    Mk5 T8/T9 Owners area
    I haven't been on here for years - My 888 1.9 CDTi has been as good as gold until now ..! So I need advice on a possible failing turbo. The car is only on around 61,500 miles and is well looked after, but the turbo has started to make a terrible screeching sound (not to be confused with the...
  11. Astra J 1.7CDTi M32 6-speed Gearbox Issues

    Astra J/GTC
    Hi all, First of all I know this subject has been done to death, and I have done a lot of reading around but no one topic matches my symptoms exactly so I'd rather ask and be sure before parting with a lot of money! I have a 2010 Astra J 1.7CDTi (125) which I believe has the M32 gearbox, 98k...
  12. What is this noise during start up?

    Astra H
    It sounds like the astra J mk6, I hired when you release/pull the electronic handbrake but since mines uses a manual handbrake and is mk5. Just wondering what the noise is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOWYFveYsW8 2nd question: Does wet or dampness cause the car to have a rough start...
  13. Soundproofing 12 plate 2.0cdti Elite

    Astra J/GTC
    Thought you all may be interested in my recent experience regarding engine noise and road noise from 12 plate Astra Elite 2.0 Diesel. Having moved from a petrol 03 plate Merc C class the Astra was a far more practical car but the engine refinement and road noise at motorway speed was markedly...
  14. Clicking / Hooting Noise - CDTI

    Astra H
    EDIT: Hooting is a terrible description of the sound - beeping would be a bit closer ! Hi Guys, The other night I noticed a problem on my 2008 1.3 cdti estate. (you can save the underpowered jokes for later once this stops breaking my heart ;p) This came out of nowhere and I'm a bit annoyed...

  17. Rattle under dash near bonnet release.

    Astra J/GTC
    I have been trying for weeks now to find the source of a rattle, it sounds a bit like two pennies chattering together. It seems to come from the computer connection socket near the bonnet release. It was hard to find as you only get it when the car is moving and if it had been on the other side...

    Astra H
    Hi All, I have just bought a 2008 Vauxhall Astra 1.7 CDTi and have noticed a 'whistle' noise coming from the front of the car when accelerating at low speeds (under 30mph) At first I thought this was just the turbo but the noise is also there when easing off the accelerator when driving down...

    Hi all, Mainly been a lurker on here but I've recently changed from a 2001 2.0DTI Astra SXI to a 2000 1.8 Bertone with no history, reciepts etc @ 80,000 miles. The one with the X18XE1 engine. I've searched this problem but can't really find the answers I need. The car has been spot on since I...
  20. Noise on system - have tried everything (I hope)

    ICE & Electrics
    Hi all, my first post, so be gentle. I have a factory Vauxhall Stereo (CD 70 Navi) which is fine by all means. I installed a Parrot MKi 9200 about 8 months ago, and everything was great. (Sound Quality has never been amazing because of the internal amp on the Mki 9200) Dont get noise when...
