Omega General Help / Re: Oil sump

As said I’ve seen it and I’ve seen them not leak. Not saying I’d do that.

Plus note some oil pans are not easy to remove. Would I do that if my oil pan was a ten year job. Possibly. That’s all I’m saying 👍

BMW are idiots sometimes using 7mm Allen slides and sometimes 8mm 😬😬😬😬😬😬

As for deep sockets Sealey do a comprehensive impact set. Only addition being a 36mm required for some hub nuts.

Everyone always puts down the younger generation but it really does seem this current crop are absolute moronic mouth breathers. No personality’s, no real interests. Just shit excuses for humans.

Rant over.

I’ve seen a few chemical metal repairs on oil pans. Seems to work absolutely fine.

*note this is not my recommendation, just saying 👍

*push and pull up and down that is 👍

Grab the bar next to the drop link and push/pull the hell out of it. You’ll feel the play. I’ve personally find that on the four poster (ie not jacked up) you can really feel the play. The mot tester will find the play this way 👍

They’re no different mate 👍 if anything they’ll be easier if they’re the crappy plastic ones. Rip the plastic arm/link off. Mole grips on the newly exposed ball joint. Buzz the nut off.

Or. If they give any trouble use angle grinder straight down the centre of the nut. Tension is then lost and again get ya mole grips on the ball joint and off it comes. 👍👍👍

What Nick said.

You may have luck with the Allen key / holding the nut if u soak it in wd and wire brush the threads. However if it gives u any hint of fighting then see Nicks post. Just do it carefully so you don’t cut the roll bar and/or strut link mount flange thingy. 👍👍👍

Yes. Drop links 😂😂😂😂

Corsas and Astra’s terrible for them 👍

Had a Range Rover (evogue?) in to top up what LR call “diesel fuel additive “. Or some horseshit like that. We don’t see many of these shite boxes thank god so I thought it’d be some special additive like the Citroen’s with their “elois fluid” that looks like a bag of blood and stinks!

Anyway turns out it was just adblue. They probably put the special additive so they go to LR and get it done as opposed to buying it cheap at Tesco. Morons.

Nope, standard AdBlue, same as added to all.

If you have the JLR service plan (which is actually a bloody bargain at 600 for 5 years), then AdBlue top up is included.

That’s what I said 👍


On the other point, is an engine light on an automatic fail? I have read of cars passing MOT with engine lights on year after year.
section 8  Nuisance
Engine Malfunction Indicator Lamp
defect (h) Engine MIL inoperative or indicating a malfunction. FAIL category MAJOR

This 👍
