High and low, pressure valves can leak as well. Replaced both of mine, still leaks.

I gas mine at the start of the year, lasts least 6 months. So it's now just an annual job   ;D

Wow, yeah can see that snapped  ;D

Luckily I've got spare pair in the garage for when one of the 3.2's goes, surpassingly they are lasting well.

Not had any issues with mine, wifi stretches to the garage and front of the house. But mine is a modern house with no solid internal walls.....

Do you have a Q box?

After 3 days of lift share buddy driving, Iíve had enough of BMW M sport suspension, looking forward to driving tomorrow.  8)

Bet the aircon wonít work though.  ;D

Works, but weak. Enough to keep cool on way in, will struggle in evenings though. Got next week off so will get it booked in for a top of in gasssss  8)

Used the AC on the Mondeo the last couple of days....first time ive used it this year.....nice and cool car....tho with it only being a 1.6TD, with the AC on, you have to give it extra wellie to make it move.....

It's now an annual service item to gas the aircon  ;D

There is a knack to it, first side was a right b@stard to do. Second time did better, I used a small screw driver to pull spring up if I remember right.

Discussed a lot here:

http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/index.php?topic=142172.0

I find my local dealer decent enough, MOT for £27, wash/vac and good service.

Found the sales man utterly, utterly useless. I asked about the last of the previous shape Insignia Elites, as I noticed they had upgraded/different leather style sports seats, also all came with the TFT speedo display. I wanted to ask what year that came in and few other questions. He just replied "you've got me there, did not know they had those style seats".

So if they sales are falling, might want to look at their rubbish reps!

Eg these type of seats.

What was the fault that made the work necessary?

This ^^

When read that V6 has had heads off for potential head gasket work wonder what other bodgery has gone on.  :'(

I'd bet a fair bit that the heads did not need to come off!

General Car Chat / Re: omega gearbox problems
« on: 16 April 2018, 12:11:26 »
You any good with the spanners?

First port of call is to check the fluid level of the gearbox, bet you it's low! Get some Dex III auto-transmission oil, eg something like this:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/172989260027?chn=ps&adgroupid=54713418609&rlsatarget=pla-411723800790&abcId=1133926&adtype=pla&merchantid=101474286&poi=&googleloc=1006472&device=c&campaignid=1057752920&crdt=0

Take car for a drive, get it up to temp, then go home jackup one side and pop some oil in. It should be level to the plug when warm, so when you drop it back down make sure something is underneath to catch extra oil you might put in as some will seep out. Or if you have access to a ramp etc, get them to top oil up with oil hot.

Then re-test, the Omega gearboxes on petrols are near bomb proof and should be easy for 300k with only fluid change.
