    Exclamation To all 1.4 owners

    Can you check please the following:
    Do you get any whine in 3rd gear at 2500-2700 rpm? Just drive in 3rd up to 2500rpm and stablilise then slightly add power up to 2700. In some cars strange whine appears, currently Opel is checking their european database for complaints. Hopefully they will find out whats causing that sound

    Yes I have tried that test and I get the whine as you say. I also tried second gear and seem to get same at about 3000rpm. My car is 1.4 petrol basic with 5-speed box. Have you any further feedback? I wonder have you the same type of gear-box. If not the noise must be coming from some common part.

    Sounds like the gearbox is getting a bit noisy. How many miles on it? How well does the synchomesh work? I.e. can you change down the gears without it baulking. If it is don't worry too much it will go on for years.
