General Car Chat / couple of questions
« on: 17 October 2017, 20:38:39 »
Audi 1.8 turbo petrol. I bought this back in april and the guy said it drinks a bit of oil. Since may i have been in somerset and my daily commute is 48 miles round trip  over 2 a roads. Over the summer i think i topped the oil up once but over the last several weeks the warning light has come on saying min oil. The first time i put about 3/4 of a litre in which had it half way up the dipstick. Today the light came on again so i topped it up to max on the dipstick.

question 1. How far could i safely travel when the light comes on.
question 2. It is standard for a petrol turbo to burn this much oil.

I couldnt see any oil leaks also isnt smokey when you hit the loud peddle.

General Car Chat / weird noise
« on: 21 May 2017, 17:06:48 »
On my 2004 audi 1.8t. It drives and runs great no oil usage but when i turn it off it sounds like a jet turbine powering down. I have had a look on the internet i cant find anything. I have read a few threads on start up being noisy but none on shut down. Any ideas please before i bend over at the local audi dealers.

General Car Chat / rear parking sensors
« on: 29 March 2017, 18:19:11 »
I dont know if this is just a coincidence but yesturday i touched up the paint on my parking sensors and today now they are not working  :(.
 I just get a constant tone, i tried the quick omega test turning the ign on then car in reverse and checking each sensor for a clicking feel. I got nothing but if i tap each sensor the tone changes to  tapping tone.
 Can you put to much paint on..

They where all working in the terms of put car into reverse and it blipped once the bleep gets faster when you got closer to something

For the first time since 2004 i do not own a omega.

I would just like to say a very big thank you to all oof members that over the years have helped in supplying and fitting and repairing my cars to  keep me on the road. I know that if not for the help my omega ownership would have been a lot shorter.
 Due to moving down to somerset and being several hundred miles away from oof help I decided it was time for a change.

Once again Thank you

cheers Paul :y :y

Omega General Help / another issue
« on: 11 March 2017, 13:13:38 »
God i hate this car >:( >:(

Anyway over the past few days i have noticed a wet patch on the drive. I checked the coolant and yes it had lost a bit. Owell need a hbv another job.
Just had it to the list >:(
Went to work this morning and as it was dry i thought i would try and see if it was the hbv leaking it wasnt it looks like the 2 pipes that go into the cabin behind the dash are both wet with coolant also its directly above the wet patch on the floor.
The hbv felt dry so i dont think its that.
Any ideas please also if i turn the heating off will it stop leaking until i can get it fixed.
