i brought a W plate astra-g estate, 1.7 dti, when i drove it home the management light came on and it didnt pull, infact i had to pull over to the slow lane as i couldnt pick up speed. I thaught straight away it was the maf sensor but i pluged code reader in and got these codes.
00163 - Engine coolant temperature, no signal, not present
00002 - Engine coolant temperature, frequency out of range, not present
00164 - Engine coolant temperature, incorrect signal, not present
00017 - no engine RPM signal, present
i think from these that the thermostat needs replacing as the needle for the temperature is stuck on 80 degrees all the way home, the air was hot when i put the fans on tho..
Thats my first problem so any help would be great.
Also need to know what oil to put in her, i have loads left over from a few petrol astras so if the x17dtl uses different oil then someone can have the bottles i have here (vauxhall stuff)
The last thing, is there a service guide for this engine here? Its my first deisel so need to know im not missing anything.
Thanks for any help or advice and ill get some pics up when my das6 has gone to work on her lol
