My mums Corsa has decided to give up the ghost. It is a P reg 1.2 8v. She tried starting it yesterday morning and it apparently kicked into life for a second then cut out again. It turns over but will not spark. Sounds as if there is no fuel in it but there is a quarter of a tank in there. As far as I am aware my dad has replaced this dispack but still no joy.
Also when I took the oil cap off to check to see if the cam was turning there was so much gunk it was untrue. Looked like head gasket had gone but no loss of coolant and no residue in the coolant tank. Could be residue from caused by excessive cold running. Could this be an issue, crank sensor maybe?
