I have topped up twice since September just about a pint each time. The other day I noticed it was down again so went and bought some VX antifreeze and topped up with that, so as, to not weaken the mixture.
I wonder if the water pump is showing signs of starting to fail? There has been no tel-tail of anything on the path outside my house. Lewis Administrator. Rusty Administrator. After a lot of investigation it ended up with me concentrating in the dashboard area. I started a strip down by taking off the door rubber then the panel with the air bag switch and the light switch panel.
After that I found two bolts 7mm and gave those a bit of a tighten up under that panel. At that point I had the light switch in my hand, which when moving it around seemed to rattle. I also gave the clips that keep the various panels in place, a bit of a bend to tighten their hold when I put them back in.The Vauxhall Astra is one of the most easily recognised cars from this popular manufacturer on UK roads.
It started life in and was the first Vauxhall to utilise front wheel drive, making it an excellent alternative to the VW Golf. This can be solved by simply cleaning the contacts in some cases, but will often require you completely replace the motor.
Is your potential purchase spluttering and not providing you with a smooth and easy ride? One potential culprit could be the mass airflow sensor, which is known to be one of the weak points in the Astra. It supplies information to the ECUwhich in turn controls the fuel and air mix in the car. Another problem that occurs on starting in the Astra is a fault with the top camshaft sensor. This could be responsible for slow starts or the car failing to start completely.
Again, the sensor can be cleaned to restore full functioning and allowing the car to start smoothly. Thinking of purchasing a 1. Check the ground where it has been parked for a serious oil spillage. If you see a large patch of oil then it may be suffering from a problem with the crankshaft seal, which will also cause a severe juddering throughout the car when you engage the clutch.
The part is quite simple to replace, but the damage caused to the engine from a poorly lubricated crankshaft could be extensive. Pay attention to your position on the road and handling when taking your Astra for a test drive.
If there is any kind of wobble or problem with holding your road position, then this could well be down to erosion in the front suspension bushes or the corrosion in the top turrets. These will need replacing to regain full control of the vehicle. Problem parts can be replaced, but be aware of the costs involved. The Astra is a car that will hold its value reasonably well over the years, providing you with many miles of solid motoring.
VAT No.There are very few major flaws on the Opel Astra J, but there are a lot of annoying little things. Many models have experienced problems with front brakes and disc vibration. The wiper sensor is prone to inaccurate reading, which causes them to start when there is not a drop of rain on the windshield. Due to improperly tuned control software on diesel models, DPF filter regeneration did not start until it was completely clogged. The 2. In both cases, Opel has upgraded the software.
Diesel engine failures are not uncommon, and the oil pressure indicator could break, causing the indicator light to light, suggesting a low oil level in the engine. The hum from the ventilation after shutting it down is addressed in the warranty by reprogramming the climate computer. The error in the operation of the automatic headlamps was also corrected in the same way.
The chronic pain of all Astras from F to J is also the clutch pedal crunch, which can be partially resolved by lubrication. There was also a problem with the electric parking brake mechanism, the cables of which rusted excessively. The result was most often a single wheel lock. On certain lots, due to improper electronic connections in the power windows and malfunctioning of their switches, there was an automatic lowering of the windows when the car was locked and parked.
Despite the strong suspension, which has a semi-rigid shaft at the back with a Watt link, many of its components cannot handle the combination of bad roads and high mass for long. Suspension ends, abutments, shoulders and stabilizers are most commonly affected by suspension.

On the manual transmissions, the bearing scheduling and failure at the third gear synchronous have been recorded. The bodywork is well protected against corrosion and rust is most commonly attacked by the exhaust system and the rear pot.

Find out most common problems with Opel Astra J Many Astras will have gone to lease and rental car firms when they were new, so it is worth checking your potential purchase for marks to the bumpers, kerbed alloy wheels and any marks on the seats. Check the service history on cars that have done high mileage as the cambelt needs changing everymiles. Vauxhall does have this job listed as part of its fixed-price servicing scheme. There were a few recalls for the Astra.
Inthere was one for the front passenger seat moving forward without warning, another in to resolve an anti-trap malfunction on the windows and the most important, a recall in to prevent a potential fire issue — the same as the one that affected the Vauxhall Zafira. The cause in the Astra was said to be a shorting circuit in the cooling fan. Owners are generally happy with their Astras, according to our most recent survey.
However, some complained of rattles in the interior. This could be as simple as the alloy wheel locking nut if it has been placed in the glovebox, or it could be something harder to diagnose such as a broken clip or loose trim. Others mentioned the aerodynamic skirt under the front bumper.
This is there to decrease fuel consumption, but it can be caught on kerbs, especially if you prefer to drive nose first into a bay when parking. If your Astra has a diesel engine, then it is fitted with a diesel particulate filter DPF. This means that the car will need to be taken on frequent motorway journeys to ensure that the DPF can regenerate, as this process is only triggered at high speed. Check how the previous owner has used the car if you are unsure.
Other potential problems with the DPF-equipped cars come if it has been shut off partway through a regeneration. The result is contamination of the oil system with fuel, which leads to the oil level rising gradually over time. Vauxhall did manage to finish ahead of Volkswagen in terms of overall reliability across models.
Plus, there is a large network of Vauxhall dealers out there that can fix your car should the worst happen. What Car? Car buying and owning advice during the pandemic. Open Gallery 5 Images. What is it like?
