First off, I'm new here, my friend recommended me this forum since he said everyone was really helpful. Hi, how do?
Just bought an 04 plate Astra GSI, seemed fine on the test drive (bought it private) but when I got it home I noticed a few problems.
For starters the computer started telling me the oil level was low, which was odd since it's been serviced a thousand miles ago or so. So I had a check and indeed it was extremely low. Topped it up and off I went, with a bit of blue smoke coming from the exhaust every now and then.
The exhaust pops quite regularly, I'm not sure if this is normal or not since this is my first turbo pertrol car, can anyone confirm?
Then on my way home the engine management came on... no idea what's caused this, but when I pulled on my drive I checked the dip stick again and the oil was quite low again
Starting to feel like I've been done a bit here, since all this has happened within first few hours of me buying it. It drives fine, pulls great up to "some speed"...
I don't know... what do you lot think?
