Hello everybody.

I'm a French driver of an Astra K 1.4T 150hp (MY18). My car has 18500 miles, since two month I have sometimes LSPI ( 5 or 6 times). I have read that the MY18 has an Ecu upgrade and Dexos 1 gen2 that normaly solved the LSPI.

Is it normally that I have LSPI??

I'm a Litle bite affraid that the engine will break down ( next week I will do 1200miles for holiday)

Sorry if I have do english fault

I'd definitely get your oil changed to the Dexos 1if you haven't already done it,
then contact your retailer about any possible software updates

Hi Jos68
A lot of 1.4t suffer from lspi , the ecu upgrade and oil were done to sort it out but still it exists in some cars after these were carried out. My advice is to check with your local dealer to see if any upgrades are due on your car even though 2018 car.
VX arnt the only manufacturer with cars that suffer from lspi. A lot of these new direct injection cars sound awful at times..diesel like. It is worrying though , my old 1.0t Astra k suffered from it and sounded like a bag of nails at times so got shot of it.

Ask him to check with your chassis number if any updates due . Tell him the lspi is getting worse and needs looking into.

If you are flooring it at them revs in 4th gear there is a good chance of lspi occurring in any gdi engine. You need to alter your driving style by dropping a gear or two before accelerating hard, the internet is full of information about lspi and the need for the driver to alter driving style in some situations.
