Problem with the EDC [electronic diesel control]. You will find this item on the side of the block near the injector pump. Had the same issues and replaced the part but had to re code the vehicle to suite the controller.

My Corsa 1.7DTI Has broken down 3 times within the space of 2 months. It seems to be the Injector EDU which is bolted to the back of the engine block. It was a secondhand unit in there. I opened it and they have bridged some circuit with a wire. There were probably a few dry points with the soldering also. What happens is the engine cranks but will not start. You can tell when it's about to fail. The bakkie misfires and jerks for a bit then just cuts out completely. My Oil light came on and stays on. It will only go off when the engine starts and runs. The solution will probably be to get a new EDU ( Ouch ) or secondhand one with a guarantee period of some sort. Hope you manage to sort your issue out!

Hi GuruXTZQW, Get your Diesel EDU tested. It's at the back of the engine. Passenger side. Bolted onto Engine block. Take it to ECU Express in Kya Sands if you are near Joburg. I bought a secondhand one there for R3500. New one is about R8500. Plugged it in and it started one shot. They also do testing there. It'll take about a day. They can even repair your existing one. Good luck!
