Corsa b (lite). 1.4i. 2001 model. Starts, but no power

Asked by Jun 02, 2018 at 02:27 AM about the 2001 Opel Corsa

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all.

Can anyone help. Got a 2001 corsa lite. The car
starts and idles perfectly, but revs up very sluggish,
like it's struggling and will hardly move when I try to
drive it. Checked all vacuum pipes and sensors. I'm
getting a smell of petrol (has a new petrol pump)
as it has a intermittent backfire but no smoke. The
car gets hot very quickly, but manages to cool itself
properly. Which is confusing (why is it getting so
hot so quickly) just by idling.

Any help or guidance on this one?

check your coil pack, and your crankshaft if it has any play
