    Hi, im new here.

    Hi, Im new and have a situation going on.

    (Heres a bit of a ramble)

    I just thought id join here coz im in a bit of a dilemma...

    I have a White S reg Astra, had it for about 4 years now and its done 74000 miles and had 2 lady owners before me. But in the past 6 months its lost its power and just doesn't run like it should, Ive give it new spark plugs but its still the same, my fella is a Mechanic but he doesn't know whats wrong with it (he thinks its somethin to do with the pistons or somethin? I dont know, im not a car person lol), he's had a diagnostic thing on it but nothing comes up.

    Does anyone know what it could be?

    My dad is certain for getting a new car and getting rid of my white one coz its not worth spending loads of money on it to get it fixed.
    I would love a new car but I just feel really sorry for this one because I really like it. My fella says in all the cars he's seen/worked on, he's never seen one so clean underneath and says its in really good condition apart from a few slight rusty bits on the wheel arch bit.

    So at the moment im getting a new car and going looking on Saturday hopefully. Ive got two cars in mind and dont know which one to go for... I LOVE the Astra SXi (cant afford the VXR), but now my dads pointed out a Corsa and im now confused, which one would you have? And is it time to move on?

    Thanks for reading and your comments are appreciated.

    Welcome Can you expand on the problems/symptoms with your current car? Could well be the usual EGR valve fault which causes things like power loss, hesitation, cutting out and others. An easy part to replace too!
