Are these manuals more reliable than auto?
Thanks in advance Stan

Omega General Help / Codes
« on: 14 January 2018, 12:46:10 »
Me again guys, yesterday EML lit for a second right in the middle of some Italian tune up while accelerating from toll booths (which I don't consider ilegal and even less dangerous ::)) when changing from 3-rd to 4-th at 6000rpm. I went to check for codes today and got 12, 31, 74....So IIRC 31 is normal, 74 is MAF sensor voltage high but what is 12? ??? Or did I misscalculate flashes....
BTW, she s going to turn her 100.000 miles today which is quite low mileage for almost 18 year old barge :y

Omega General Help / Oil cooler plate leak
« on: 12 January 2018, 21:41:14 »
Hi guys, last year I found a cause of coolant leak and decided to sort it out at the same time as cambelt which is planned for this summer.
The question is: Is it adviceable to replace entire oil cooler while I'm there or just reseal an old cooler plate?
Oil cooler isn't mixing oil and coolant  for now.
If anyone has any parts laying around  I could use here, let me know.
Thanks in advance, Stan

My Omega runs with abs, tc and speedo working now...if I ignore just a little bit of rust on rear wheelarch, she will stay my daily runner.
Many thanks again  :y

General Car Chat / Buying advice
« on: 14 August 2017, 17:06:35 »
Hi guys, I've found an Omega for sale, for cheap but has an issue. Owner says it wants to overheat and fans don't kick in until temp warning light doesn't appears. Radiator was replaced, looses ver small amount of coolant every few months and suprisingly doesn't leak oil (plug wells aren't full yet  ::) )
Problem is he lives 150 km away and in order to drive home I can't drive with overheating car.
The reason I noticed this Omega at all is how healthy body it has. Only a small almost invisible spot of rust behind rear right wheell.
It would be a shame for it to be scrapped.
What do you think what could be the reason for overheating?
Simple as a thermoswitch or something more sinister?
Thanks, Stan

Omega General Help / Vibrations
« on: 03 August 2017, 09:31:51 »
This is an issue for at least a year now, but there were many other things to do. Vibrations occure when accelerating on motorway in 3rd mostly and when breaking from motorway speed.
Discs and pads are new - all corners, new drop links. I believe front suspension arms are still original, could there be so much play in those when under stress? There's no obvious play in wheells.
Before I take those off and ruin the alignment - front ones or rear ones?
Thanks, Stan

General Discussion Area / Ebay buy issue
« on: 27 July 2017, 09:10:44 »
Hello, I'd like to ask a question about a seller I know some of you bought items from.

Above is the item I want to buy...well after my first contact  with him, he was very informative about what part numbers should I be looking for, to get a compatible part...but after I reminded him the item needs to be sent to where I live, there was no response from him anymore.
I have a few explanations - he got heart attack, he ran away, he didn't get my mail or he just doesn't want to have anything to do with some shady country from central europe ::) :P ;D

His feedback is 100% so i just don't get it. At least he could tell me to F... .FF.... :D

Hi guys, as above i relly need one , hopefully someone has a spare.
I'll post pics ob numbers on unit itself for compatibility reason.

General Car Chat / Side mirror question
« on: 05 July 2017, 17:15:32 »
Hi guys, almost had a crash today, but managed to escape with driver side mirror glass broken only (blo..y Italian old lady >:( )  Searching trough Ebay, all the mirrors are listed as estate or saloon... I forgot,  is there a difference between those at all?
And if someone has one laying around...I'd really need one for a reasonable price - UK passenger side heated mirror glass with mounting.

I hope this one hasn't been posted yet. That bloke was clearly pleasantly surprised

Omega General Help / Poor air con performance
« on: 16 May 2017, 18:10:42 »
Hi guys, it was 25deg outside today and all air con could do was warm air coming out the wents. Both fans are spinning when AUTO is pressed, both stop when press ECO. Tried vacuum one hour after engine was running , hissing  when I dissconnected vacuum pipe  so not vacuum related.
Should I regass it for a start?
Also, I reset it by holding AUTO and OFF buttons for 5 seconds - to no avail.
