    bad day!

    i aranged to px my astra 1.6 club for a corsa c20xe redtop... i drove to a town just past hull from sheffield to do the px, He took me out in the corsa and let me drive it and it was fine and fast just like i wanted, so we signed the logbooks to do the px, i started driving it home with my friend when we noticed a juddering, we thought it might be because it hadent ran for a while, so we pulled in to the petrol station to fill it up with juice, after i paid for the petrol the car would not start. so like nobs we bump started it in the petrol station and just thought it needed a new battery as he said (it hadnt run for a while) so we kept the engine ticking so we didnt have to bump it again, so i drive roughly 5 mile down the dual caridge way in hull and the exhaust starts back-firing really loud and the engine cuts out... so we knew something want right, so we tried bumping it agen and it started and ran for about another half a mile but this time we stared on our way back to the petrol station to get some oil to lubricate the engine. anyway the exhaust started smoking and started popping again then packed in again and had no power AT ALL woulent even turn onto ignition lights, i lifted the bonnet and looked in the coolant tank and it was full of a creamy substance therefore the head gasket had gone... luckily i parked over a puddle and noticed the water turning shiney and murkey, therefore that explains the oil light constantly on... it was pissing oil. so i phoned the guy who had just swaped the corsa for my astra and he came to us and gave me my astra back which i was pleased about but we spent 2 hours traveling arround 30 miles bumping the corsa every 2 mile back to his house... moral of the story. dont trust anyone

    Least he done the decent thing & gave you your car back.

    I've had plenty of xe's in a corsa & a let & they are a headache at times, so I feel your pain.
