Start idle

  • 45,000 MILES

Why does my Opel Corsa 2007 ulility not start, affer I switched it off? After two hours it started, straight away, this happen two days ago and never since.
This never happened before.
It had all its services on time, now at 65,000km.
It didnt give any trouble ever.
It didnt get wet.
I take it every month for a good run on the high way.
Is this common to Opel?
Could it be the pc control board that neaded to reset?

Do you
have the same problem?

Next time it refuses to start don't wait for it to make up its mind-do below immediately to determine if its fuel or spark problem

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
