About the Karl/Viva
The Opel Karl first made its debut in 2015. It then remained on the market until its discontinuation as a result of Opel joining PSA Group in 2019.
The model has also been sold as the Vauxhall Viva in the United Kingdom. It also represents a rebadged version of the fourth-generation Chevrolet Spark.
The city car was named after Adam Opel’s oldest son, Carl. This trend has also been seen with the release of the Opel Adam a few years ago.
Competition from the model comes mainly from the likes of the Kia Picanto, Hyundai i10, and Volkswagen Up!
One of the most common issues the Karl faces is fault code P0110, which represents an issue with the intake air temperature sensor circuit.
For Opel models, this sensor is part of the MAF, which means replacing the MAF sensor is one of the simplest fixes for this problem. This problem can also be caused by leaks in the intake system.
Another intake issue that the Karl is relatively known to suffer from is P0105, which indicates an issue with the MAP sensor circuit. Again, replacing the sensor is one of the easiest solutions. In some cases, the circuit needs to be checked for electrical issues.
Fault code P0301 is another problem that the model can suffer from. This code indicates a misfire from the first cylinder. Usually, there can be a number of potential causes for a misfire. However, it is likely that one of the first two codes may be logged alongside this code.
If that is the case, it is more than likely that the additional codes are the cause of the misfire. Other issues like faulty fuel injectors and spark plugs can also be the cause.
