    So had a go at the paperclip method there and it brought up 2 codes: 12 which is the Air Flow Meter, and 43 which is the Throttle Position Sensor. Now I cleared the 2 codes and started it up again, thought all was well but again as soon as she started to heat up she idled like a b*itch, didn't driver her but im assuming its no better. Went to check it again and the only code i got up was 55 and thats the 'no faults to report code' so i dunno what the **** is going on.

    What about the coolant temp sensor? I'm thinking it's this cause all goes to pot as soon as the temp gauge starts to rise. Been looking it up and apparantly this sensor can cut the fuel from the fuel pump, and if its faulty then it could be doing it at the wrong time, which could be my issue.

    Back to the Opel Corsa for the time being anyway

    when you get a coolent temp sensor, best to go to nissan or get one off someone on here (for like next to nothing), as the voltage output of aftermarket ones chances are it will give a different signal range... not hard to come by i have a couple sitting around from intake manifolds from previous things, collant temp sensors can muck with more then most people realise.... the whole my car runs fine when cold then stalls when hot normally is that sensor on any car

    DONT get a ebay chinese replacement part........ if the voltage signals are not exactly what your ecu understands for what temp, your problem will only get worse.... and how good do you think non OEM sensors like that are at being consistent or accurate, its such a low cost item even to get a good one...
