Opel Cars & Trucks - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Hi did you do the engine overhaul yourself? if so I don't think you have any comeback, but, is a registered agent did the work, you should take it back and get them to rectify the problem at their expense as they are the agents for the Opel company in Germany. Incidentally, General Motors sold Opel and Peugeot, France bought it, so you may have a battle to get satisfaction. Good luck!!

One possibility is that the turn signal switch has a bad connection on the nonworking side. Another is that both the nonworking side bulbs are bad.

Most common cause of jerking is a misfire but that would be likely to switch on the engine check light.

Certainly it would be a good idea to check if any faults had been recorded by the obd system and it would do no harm to check the spark plugs and replace if necessary and while the bonnet is open carry out a thorough visual inspection of the pipes, wires and cables and all electrical connections as a matter of good practice.

Without a more detailed description of the jerking it is difficult to make any other suggestions.

Unable to find anything either. You may need to find a complete used car, sold for spares and swap engines.

Here's an example of what I'm thinking;

The reason they work with the engine OFF is that they are not spinning so there is nothing stopping them moving in and out of position.
Ill need a bit more information to give you more help.
Is this a manual or an automatic vehicle? Does it do anything else when the engine is running? Does it make noises like grinding or crunching? Does it jump roughly as it goes into gear or slip into gear? Please comment below and I'll try to help you more.

Too rich? Look for vacuum hose leak from intake and PCV tubes. Clean the intake flow sensor and throttle plate properly.
