Vauxhall to repair engines with sticking valves

VAUXHALL has announced that it will repair free of charge engines with 'sticking valve syndrome'. The problem has troubled a small percentage of Vauxhall's 1.4 and 1.6 16-valve engines found in the Corsa, Astra, Tigra and Vectra.

The manufacturer has sold 85,000 cars with these engines over the past four years, and expects a maximum of 1,500 to suffer from sticking valves. The offer extends to cars up to three years of age and with fewer than 60,000 miles on the clock and the job can be completed in under a day.
