  • [Corsa C 2000-2006] Corsa C 06 Engine management light appeared and car revving itself when idle

    Welcome to the Forum.
    I take it that you have a petrol model?
    As the problem started after you added fuel, there is a chance that the fuel is the culprit - is there any chance that you accidentally topped up with Diesel fuel? (petrol engines will run with small amounts of Diesel in the tank, but will probably produce a lot of exhaust smoke and probably damage the cat (catalytic converter) in the process.
    You could also have a lambda sensor fault, but rather than simply buy a new one, I would suggest that you: (1) Have the fault codes read; (2) make a note of any codes showing; (3)clear the codes that are showing; (4) drive the car as normal; (5) re-read the codes - any that now show will probably point to the problem.
    If you wish to 'experiment', you could buy a tin of 'carb cleaner' and clean the throttle body - which won't do it any harm (but it may not do any good either)

    Regards

        There is a chance that the petrol that you bought was contaminated, which could mean having to drain the tank as well as change the petrol filter.
