The models covered in this publication are the April 1997 onward models, which were the subject of a model facelift together with extensive mechanical revisions. This manual covers models fitted with petrol engines, but other models in the range are available with diesel engines. A variety of petrol engines are available in the Corsa range, of 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 litre capacity and with single overhead camshaft (SOHC) or double overhead camshaft (DOHC) configuration. All engines are of the four-cylinder, in-line type, with the exception of the 1.0 litre engine which is a three-cylinder unit. The engines all have fuel injection, and are fitted with a range of emission control systems. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Vauxhall repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Vauxhall Corsa repair manual makes the ideal companion when you’re undertaking maintenance or repairs on your car.
