    Bloody Car

    Having a few problems with the car, ive got a very lumpy idle and the car keeps cutting out when coming to a stop at a junction (the engine just dies) ive changed the amf and that didnt work. it comes and goes it will either do it all the time or not at all but to day has been really bad, cutting out at every junction. Now to top it all of i have been getting turbo chatter. I have an open airfilter and its been on for over a year and had no problems with it and im using the standard Dv, any help???? are these two things even related?
    Cheers Nick

    are you using an aftermarket DV too? Or the one way valve mod for the DV?? The one way valve made my car stall at junctions.

    Have you done the pedal test? Our old Corsa was a bit lumpy, and cut out once, no spanner light but showed a crankshaft sensor message, new one fixed it.

    Ok, well i took the car to the garage to have it checked out, the guy said it chucked loads of fault codes at him, he cleared them all as most were prob old, he said to drive it for a few days and take it back to him so he can check it again, the car has been driving fine since, ie not stalling and there seems to be more power than before and its allot smoother. just hope it stays that way.

    Only problem now is the turbo chatter has any one got any suggestions what could be wrong?

    ok i did the pedal test today i gave me one code 1106, i think the turbo chatter is linked to the stalling which it is still doing, gonna check all the hoses and see what i can find, but i dont really know what hoses to be looking at lol

    check the vac box under the car some people have had these pipes pop off and caused chatter or disable the rear BCS and Vac box
