think they were 150Bhp from memory, but after a time used to see most of them parked up on the Hard Shoulders   :(  :-\
SOunds like the redtops. A powerful motor, with occasional niggles, but still well regarded in the reliability stakes :y
Aye, porous heads on some of them, can't remember if it was the Coscast ones or the GM ones now.

I don't know whether it's just me or not,but I'd be interested to hear others views.I have a RWD-the Omega-and a FWD-the V70-and I've owned other RWD/FWD cars in the past.Now in ordinary day to day driving[round town/to the shops etc.]I find no particular sensation that would tell me which wheels are providing the thrust,likewise when travelling the motorways at motorway speeds.Yes when setting off from a standstill using a bit of "hooligan mode" the driven wheels will spin up a lot easier on a FWD car,the turning circle tends to be greater on the FWD[given similarly sized cars and on the "twisties" there are also differences to be noticed.So what other sensations do others experience[which I obviously don't]that screams at them RWD or FWD?

Just done the BBC’s budget calculator, we will be £20 a month better off from next April. Better than nowt.
I'm around £8 better off, but the questions are a bit wank, as my weeks vary so much, and I have no idea what I earn (other than "not enough" ;D)

I was in the process of buying one back around 2003, Metallic Grey, I suppose it was a case of Ive all ways fancied one, when a Black RWD Cossie Sapphire come up for not much more money, so it was a bit of a no brainier which one to buy in the end.  :)

A mate had a hatchback pre frog eyed one, and it was a nice enough place to be a passenger.  His was underpowered, though I forget which engine it had, and we've long since lost touch  :'(. The low power and heavy car made it a less satisfying car to drive.

Bro had a proper Grandad for a while, Mk2 2.8i Ghia, which was a very nice car to driven around in in its day, and went well (by the then standards). It was just too unreliable, so he replaced it with a Chavalier SRi 130, which as we know was bombproof.
Ive had a few them as well, plus the younger 1.8, 8 Valve jobbies, really used to love my ones, you use to have to rag the revs and get them in the right gear to shift properly, but once you mastered that they were really nippy, even by today's standard, not bad for a little 115/130 Bhp lumps.  :y

The one I really would have liked was the Cav 2.0 GSi, think they were 150Bhp from memory, but after a time used to see most of them parked up on the Hard Shoulders   :(  :-\

Thanks omegod.

Zirk, good points. Yes, runs fine on petrol. Had it in my head it would be ignition as LPG more sensitive than petrol to ignition problems and ignition components haven't had any maintenance for a while. But should really have more of a think about it before jumping in with a new DIS pack.

I've not checked for codes, but I guess I should.

Spark plug wells should be fine, as I recently did the gaskets and breathers, but will check them also.

Was rushing a bit as I have a mate in the area at the weekend who works at a garage and gets me parts very cheap. But I think I should investigate a bit first.

Thanks for the advice.

Tim

I'm suffering CBA, so no idea how much I'm getting screwed for.
