    Smile Hi im new just signing in to say hello


    Hi everyone im new to this sort of thing. Only just joind today!
    Big thanks to HEV for giving me a flyer in the car park at cleck the otherday.
    I would like to know if anyone has a feb 04 astra gsi with the same problems as me. The lether part around the seat reclining handel comes out and the drivers seat creeks unless it is pushed right back. the main bug bare is that you can feel a slight kangaroo felling tru the turbo range as well can anyone help on this as vauxhall says that noting comes up on there computor tec thing. Iv tryd the new air fillter and plugs but still no result. by the way there is no mods done yet to the engine all still standard. i would much appreciate some help on these as the car is still under warranty and i would like it running properly. As its a excellent car to drive.

    My old cars
    x1 astra gte mkII
    x1 astra gte 16V
    x1 astra gsi 16V MKIII
    x1 calibra turbo 4x4

    Thanks for any assistence

    welcome to the site mate gonna be very difficult to get Vauxhall to chase a problem that doesn't show up on tech2

    best bet is get yourself along to one of our local meets and ask someone to go out with you in yours and see if they notice the problem. Could just be a characteristic you're not used to, but does sound a bit odd

    I had the same issue regarding the kangaroo turbo a week back. If i accelerated hard the turbo would spool up and then without moving my foot off the accelerator it would almost feel like it was dumping the pressure (DV fitted) but no sounds emitted to confirm this. it drove ok if you did not press it hard. only reason i can come up with - i filled up with regular unleaded at a TOTAL service station, - i usually use shell optimax or BP premium fuel. maybe it was down to dodgy fuel or a lower ron rating - i don;t know,. anyway i filled up with premium when tank emptied and prblem gone away....maybe just lucky....?
