Problem with a VAUXHALL CORSA 1.2L 2002 74K

Top end noisy due to hydraulic valve lifters and failing MOT emissions test. ( CO 5.45%, HC 351, Lambda 0.852).

The fault was cured by using Forté's Clean & Protect, a 45 minute Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush adding Forté Oil System Protector to the new oil.

The engine was then run at 2,500 rpm adding half a bottle of Forté Specialist Injector Cleaner directly into the inlet manifold slowly drawn into the engine via a vacuum connection and adding the remaining Specialist Injector Cleaner and an additional bottle to the fuel tank.

The vehicle was taken on an extended road test. The emission re-test passed; CO 0.003%, HC 68, Lambda 1.004 and top end noise cured.

Thanks to Andy at The Service Centre in Tamworth, Staffordshire.
