  • [Corsa D 2006-2014] Losing power


    This is the first time I have been on here so appologies if this has been answered.

    I have a 1.3cdti ecoflex 13 plate that has an intermittent problem.

    When travelling at 50mph or above the car starts to judder and loses power. This has been going on since about May but last night it was really bad.

    When I reached 50mph on the motorway yesterday the car started to judder and I lost about 10mph. I dropped down into 4th gear, increase speed and when I put it into 5th again the same thing happened. This happened about 4 or 5 times before it was ok. Also the car was struggling to accelerate even with my foot to the floor.

    It is not only limited to speed, but it also happens when i am climbing a hill in lower gears.

    I have taken in to Vauxhal but they cant find any faults, and it is going back on Monday, but in the meantime I would be interested to see if anyboday else has had the same problem.

    Try disconnecting the EGR valve and then driving it - you'll get a fault light for the EGR but ignore that for the time being.

      Hi, I've just come along your post and I'm wondering if you ever got the issue resolved? I am having the exact same issue and they cant find a fault code and I am desperate for help.
