Vauxhall Corsa Starting Problems

Post by tom » Sun Mar 05, 2006 6:33 pm

I have a little old Corsa that has suddenly decided it doesn't want to start. It worked fine yesterday morning but by the afternoon it won't start. I've checked all the plugs, leads, distributor, battery is charged and there's fuel in the tank. I've even had the breakdown out to check, he got it started but you have to keep the accelerator to the floor to keep it running. The slightest lift off and it cuts out. He said it's more than likely a sensor. Does anybody have any ideas what it could be, I'm thinking the Idle Speed control or the TPS.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Mass Air Flow Sensor?

You don't say which engine it has, but suspect you might be better off asking one of those Burberry clad fellows..
