    Not really too sure where to start, but I want to rebuild an engine, I was thinking of starting by getting a block and building it up from there

    I have to say, this is one of my favorite Corsa B's, the colour is just stunning.

    Car is juddering under acceleration and deceleration, gearbox is whining and the revs will stay at 2000 when idling

    Edit: also has an air leak from inlet pipe to idle control valve

    nope, Oil cooler hose has now ripped open on the same curb that ripped the bumper off and there is a line of oil on the road for about 2 miles, and the MOT has now expired, going Turkey tomorrow so will have to wait till we come back
