Are you sure it is not a leaking radiator, like I suffered recently? A small leak in the header tank will be concealed by the radiator cover plate, and if only a pinhole will leak only when hot and under pressure, and not be obvious.

I heard that some factories were offline for maintenance, and another one(s) suffered a problem causing a long shutdown, so only 1 or 2 factories left producing in Europe currently.

wasn't that cause of the shortage of CO2  :-\

Thanks for all the replies, I will stick with the blue coolant seen as that is what was in it.  I checked the level of fluid last night and it was still on the full mark, after 3 days. The wife drove it last night and today and said no there were no problems, and the coolant warning didn't come on. I went to go out in it and the coolant warning was back on, when I checked the level it was just below the white dome thing inside the coolant tank, would this just be the car finding its proper level, now it has had a good drive? There is no water under the car, where it has been parked, also listened for anything that sounded like water escaping under pressure and nothing.

The coolant is still the same as it was before, no oil in it. And no water on the dipstick.

If you park any Omega for more than a week without disconnecting the battery*, expect to have to jump it.

But, do this more than four or five times, and you can expect to be buying a new battery.

* The caveat is to be sure that the key works in the driver's door lock and do not double lock it with the remote...
Most Standard Elites can easily withstand 3-4 weeks if all is in good working order, and the power sounder is in the bin. Lesser models should be a little bit better.
my CDX sat from 24th march to 18th may ,(8 weeks ) started first key  :)

The woman buying our last house was expecting to do so with cash from a divorce settlement... Ex was a Virgin B747 captain...

Clearly his solicitors were far more competent than the idiot she used to buy the house as she had to get a sizeable mortgage, which nearly bollaxed the entire chain >:(

Her dilly dallying cost us about £15k as we had a house lined up which we were unable to commit to. Fortunately, when our sale finally went through the house two doors up from the first choice came on the market, so we put an offer straight onto that and 18 years later...

I use red, just so I only have to change it every 3 years on so, rather than annually.  Cost is about the same, and the effort is the same, and I'm a lazy bastid :D


I've never seen the need to change it annually, so don't bother.
