Problem with a VAUXHALL CORSA 1.2 16v 2005 40k

Engine misfire when driven and fault codes stored for multiple cylinder misfires. Various components checked and replaced spark plugs, air flow meter, timing chain kit and EGR valve. Fault not cured and misfire still present. After further investigation the fault was caused by the carbon canister under the O/S/F wing being full of water and the fuel contaminated with water.

The fault was cured by replacing the carbon canister, fuel filter and draining and replacing the contaminated fuel in the fuel tank.

Due to the misfire fault it is also recommended to use Forté Advanced Formula Gas Treatment and Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush to remove contamination from the oil and fuel system.
