  1.4 non turbo P0171 code
Posted by: Mohammed_Malik - 13:th-Feb-2024, 16:31:53 - Forum: Mechanical - Replies (1)

I have a 2013 Astra 1.4i and the EML light is constantly on, the garage has reset the light but it immediately comes back on and also gives the code P0171.
also when the car starts the fan switches on straight away. I have found some info about a PCV sensor or something? I took the oil cap off and its filled with gunk.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

Been here a long time (registered in Jan 2017) and for unknown reasons the forum went down a couple of years ago and my last post on here was in Sep 2021. 
It's only this week that I have found the forum is finally working again. I almost gave up bothering to check occasionally.

Anyway, seems very quiet in here. Hopefully it'll pick up sometime soon once other members realise it's up and running again.

  Dipped Headlights queries
Posted by: Michael C - 5:th-Dec-2023, 11:29:15 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC - Replies (1)

Struggling to find information online. The dipped headlights for my Astra GTC are terrible(hard to see 3meters infront of the car when driving on dark roads), the full beam is pretty bad too but I'm lead to believe these lights are from the same bulb in this model. Has anybody replaced these bulbs with LED ones and if so could you recommend which bulb you used or even reliable manufacturer, seeing so many different types and a wide range of prices, would like to get good ones without having to trial and error different bulbs. Any information would be much appreciated, thanks!

  1.7 cdti engine judder in 5th and 6th
Posted by: ScottN2211 - 21:st-Oct-2023, 16:27:48 - Forum: Astra-J/GTC Common Problems - No Replies

My 2011 astra j 1.7 cdti is juddering when accelerating from 1500rpm to 2000rpm in 5th and 6th (worse in 6th) no juddering above 2000rpm or when just cruising, only happens when you try and give it some gas. Changed MAF sensor, fuel filter, air filter and suction control valve. Cleaned EGR valve and MAP sensor, also had front wheels balanced, still no joy. Anyone had it before or got any ideas?

Custom made adapter for steering wheel controls to work, and 3d printed adapters to fit new cluster on original spot.
