Thank you both for the quick replies.


Omega General Help / Do later front wings fit the prefacelift Omegas
« on: 15 February 2020, 17:46:22 »
Can anyone tell me if the later front wings will fit a 1995 Omega? Just wandered if they are different because of the bonnet style.

Someone has decided to put a big dent in the wifes passenger wing.

Thanks in advance for any help.


General Car Chat / Has anyone looked into 90467543 Top hat 3D printed
« on: 13 February 2020, 14:04:31 »
As the subject says. Has anyone thought about having the top hat seal 3D printed? Surely in this day and age, to make something like that should be simple to make? There must be a filament that can withstand the heat of the engine?

Just thinking aloud.

General Discussion Area / OOF Shop will not let me order

I have been trying to order the V6 Cambelt DVD. I cannot get past the registration details, as it does not have County Durham in the drop down list of the State/Province section. Is there a way to get round it?

Thanks in advance

Mouse on laptop decided, to play silly higlighting everything. When trying to unhighlight it caught font size. But may be he might just notice.  ;D

I have been trying to get hold of him. As was going to ask if he would do the rocker cover gaskets as they are starting to weep, at the same time as he was doing the belt and waterpump that I have purchased on his recommendations.

Yes I am now living in West Cornforth. As you say not far from you. :y

General Discussion Area / Does anyone speak to Daz (Darth Loo Knee)?
« on: 05 February 2020, 14:16:58 »
I know it is a long shot but does anyone speak to Daz? He was going to come upto Scotland to do my 2.6 timing belt. I have sinced moved and the Mobile Number he gave me, to make arrangements is incorrect.  If anyone does speak to him, would it be possible for you let him know that I have been trying to get hold of him. And that I will leave him a PM on here, or if anyone could PM me I can give you my Number for him to contact me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Fuel filter, or maybe fuel pressure regulator faulty? Do a google on the symptoms of these. See if someone can do a fuel pressure test for you, will give you some idea of how the fuel system is working. Someone else with alot more experience will be along, to give you more ideas, of where to check.

Omega General Help / Re: Coolant problem.

it will help to see the UV dye if it is reasonably dark, as the UV torch is not powerfull in bright light. As I have one of those kits, in my toolbox.

Did you burp the system. Another suggestion given to me, was make sure the Coolant system is burped. Apparently it doesn't always automatically burp itself, causing airlocks.

Hope you manage to sort it out.

Another area, is on the top left side of the Radiator. It can have a airline crack in it, but the coolant can go down over the week. I had the same symptoms on my Omega, (it is a 2.6),  As suggested on here, removed the plastic cover, over the radiators then pressurised the coolant system. The leak could be seen then. Replaced the radiator no coolant low warning since. Except when HBV went. :y

It was me, considering the price of Vauxhall the 30 asking price was good. Also got a Lucas IAT to replace the old one. So hopefully over the weekend will be able to fit them, and see what happens. :y

Thanks for asking.


Yes replaced O2 sensor with a NTK OTA7L-3C4 one, as told NTK are the best. Checked on their webcat and fitted the one for the car.  The car is a 1995 2lt 16v four cylinder X20XEV first registered 13 October 1995 not a V6 :y

You are correct the ECT part was Siemens 5WK90601, Fuel Parts equivalent is WS1044. Cleaned IAT it is showing 22c with engine not running, temp outside is 10c off met site.

Found this for IAT Seems correct? Are Lucas any good still?

Even with the temp sensor fluctuating as you said?

Exhaust is new from downpipe to back box, as old one had too many rust holes. Made sure downpipe to manifold and cat to middle section were ok, with no leaks.
