Sat in one a couple of weeks ago, headroom I thought wasn't great (I'm 6") but bearable, rear and front leg room huge, boot huge (for any dead bodies)!

Omega General Help / Heard metallic clink on sharp corner
« on: 08 July 2018, 23:09:16 »
Hi Guys

2.6 02 saloon

Was cornering right hand bend the other day, it's a short sharp one, more of a sort of L bend for a mway on ramp, and took it a bit "keen" and then heard what I can only describe as a metallic clink sound, the noise was more "outside" rather than hearing it through the cabin; I had window down so heard it clearly outside. Haven't inspected anything as of yet and don't see anything visual like sagging from broken spring or anything, nor is handling any different or any other noises apparent, so going to have a look. Anyone had a similar experience and found what it was, or suggestions what to check etc.

Thanks

G

Found a place in Glasgow who does diagnostics, only 25 bucks for a diagnosis test, most garages round here are saying they can just top gas up.


They're not going to diagnose anything until the system is gassed and any obvious leaks sorted

That's what I'll be getting them to do. Check for leaks first, vac test.

Also found out what the little button is on centre too of dash, a sun sensor, something to do with climate control as well.

Omega General Help / Re: Drain torque converter
« on: 05 July 2018, 07:51:48 »
Pretty much all automatic gearboxes are the same and I've never seen one where you can drain the torque converter. If you hold a TC in your hand it becomes pretty clear why that's the case.

About the best thing you can do is replace the fluid you can get to, then flush the transmission with clean fluid via the fluid cooler lines. I have a theory that the AR35 returns fluid from the TC via the cooler lines. If/when I CBA to change my fluid I might test that theory. ;D

On the other hand, a partial fluid change is better than nothing, and it's the best any autobox gets, even if it's not declared to be "sealed for life".

There is a drain plug on my mk2 Grenada for tc.

how much auto box fluid is in the cooler rad and lines ?
is it worth draining ?
do you disconnect both lines and let it drain out or will it just drain with the sumps removed anyway
i have to do mine soon
TIA  :)

Pop off the bottom pipe to drain it, check guide under maintenance guide/index which details the pipe removal

Had a look through rads with torch and can clearly see right through fins. Not really convinced they are blocked bad enough to cause it not too cool. While my pressure gauge is showing into the green, compressor kicks in and fans running when an on, any other thoughts what it could be. I measured temp of compressor and pipes with infra red temp reader, getting 40 oC on LP pipes, 70  odd on comp and associated pipes. Condenser was about 38 on passenger side, 32 on driver side

I am thinking of changing box oil soon and reading the guide seen that only 5 litres got removed from a possible 8. Does tc also have a drain plug? Don't see point in leaving 3 litres of old oil in there.

You can, but you'll need to remove the radiator and condenser in order to remove the fans...

 ;D

Not just the 2 fans behind grill, they have to come out backways towards engine? There is one fan in front of rad, 2 at grill side. I take it air con fans don't come out front ways?

Is it easy enough to access the condenser,  do I need to remove the fans only to get in to check it's clean?

Just removed the power sounder for peace of mind. I seen that someone had already unplugged the sounder but not the siren so perhaps was causing problems for previous owner.

Certainly the box "looks" ok but I don't know what it is like inside. It looks like it is sealed together so I think I would need to break it to get it open or at least prize the shell apart, which would potentially break the cover.

Disable the touchscreen, and see if that improves it - it might be ultra sensitive.  If that cures, then look for reducing sensitivity in driver.

There is touch point app thing that opens each time I start machine, I just closed it there and it seems ok.

I've just inherited a Packard Bell M3700 integrated desktop, basically a big screen with a computer inside. It has this on screen touchpad thing which I don't need and it sits quietly in the top corner of the screen. It also has this peculiar problem where the mouse is jumping about the screen, right clicking and doing weird stuff. It also seems to change the tabs and if I am typing the cursor just disappears as if it had clicked off the screen' it's happened about 8 times while typing this. It also seemed to refresh this page when I was typing this out so had to type all again.

I've tried virus/malware scan, done all the updates, checked another mouse, turned off all the usual guff that was running in the background and it is still doing it. I even tried running in safe mode but was still doing it. I am going to try running virus scan in safe mode as I had that before on another PC where the virus could hide itself from the scanner in normal windows mode.

In the meantime any other things I can check?

Cheers

G
