I've normally used the short D fingering with the low C key added oxx|oooC on my cor (Marigaux 930) as that's better tuned than the full fingerings (with RH fingers 2 or 3 or both held down) and doesn't require much of my limited brain power.

Check the forked F vent fully closes with the low C key as well as the amount of closure of the RH2/RH mid fingerplate. The adjusting screws for these can vary from instrument to instrument, but the one that normally shuts off the forked F vent is usually the one going directly through the low C key touchpiece arm.

The RH2 adjuster is either soldered directly to the left side of the pip on the low C key touchpiece arm (like the Philly D adjuster on some oboes), or on a lot of older cors, it's the one mounted on a separate arm just off to the right of the low Eb touchpiece when you have your cor laid across your lap.

Some student model cors have a much simpler forked F vent arrangement which isn't closed by the low C key, so that can have an effect on some altissimo notes.
