If the car can be driven that far (under 200 miles), take it to SOSautomotive.
If all else fails Serek will give you an excellent repair and/or engine swap at a more than fair price; well worth the journey.
Let's hope it doesn't come to that and the fault is simple and cheap to cure.

If going down the replacement lump route, throw a 3.0 or 3.2 in it :y

Rude not to while you are there...

.. and change the auto box for an AR35 too. ;)

Reading your other posts, the heads were removed because the oil cooler failed, and presumably still is... No mention of it being replaced during the work.

Fundametally your engine has had a lot of unnecessary work without either diagnosing or fixing the actual issue...

Incidentally, fixing the oil cooler is around 200 in parts/coolant, and circa a days work once fully flushed.

Someone owes you an explanation, apology, a refund and probably a replacement engine.

Best do the slushbox too
I wouldn't fancy running a 3 or 3.2 with a AR25 fitted  ;)

Cant begin to imagine why anyone would remove the heads because of oil cooler failure.  ??? :-\ :o
If they did, they shouldn't be allowed to check tyre pressures, never mind let loose with spanners.
If it does need a new engine, Serek at SOS may well have a ready supply. I remember him having a few good 3.2 engines off me when I was breaking Omegas.

It is only the end of your Omega when you can no longer afford, or can, keep it going.

Realistically us on the OOF have, I suspect, mostly spent far more on our beloved miggies than the "book value" - I know I have - but our love knows no bounds and if we want to keep it going we just keep spending and working on them.

All the many replies on this thread prove Omega Geezer, there is always an effective solution to keep your Omega going if you want to! :D :D :y
