Firstly please can i have a huge welcome to this forum Currently own a Vectra GSi, but have just bought mysely a Corsa C SRi to add to my collection, great car Have encountered a small problem though, which is when i change from 1st to 2nd gear and then from 2nd to 3rd theirs a strange knocking sound from the engine bay. Was told it may be the front engine mount, which i changed today, but the problem still persists !!! If anyone could shed some light into this problem i would be extremely grateful!!

Deffo when when you let the clutch out quick, no pulling or knocking through steering wheel, i wouldn't say it was a loud bang, it almost sounds like its a perished rubber or something. Got my mechanic mate to have a quick look over it but apart from the front engine mount he couldn't see anything wrong. It's a 54 plate and the 1.4 version if this helps further.

God i hope not, only bought it a few weeks ago!!! Was kinda hoping someone on here had had this problem before. Vauxhall said they were happy to take the car in for a few hours for me whilst charging their ridiculous hourly rate!!

If it was me id personally start off by dumping a bigger lump in. You'll only get small gains otherwise for a lot of money spent. Just my opinion though
