Omega General Help / Torque settings
« on: 23 November 2018, 10:12:45 »
I've  just bought a set of Vectra alloy cam covers after replacing three pairs of plastic ones over the years.
Does anyone know if torque settings for alloy covers are the same as for plastic ones?
The plan is to replace them next month because it's already cambelt time.
Thanks in advance, Stan

Omega General Help / Cambelt change side jobs
« on: 20 August 2018, 14:05:02 »
Hi guys, I'm planning to do a cambelt job in week or two, have all the parts already bought and in garage.
I'm thinking about replacing both sensors screwed into coolant radiator while I'm there as they seem to be hard to reach without all the air hoses out.
I know one sensor is a fan switch but I don't know what the other is for..?
And does anyone have part numbers for those sensors?
Thanks, Stan

General Car Chat / Part number or at least a name
« on: 04 July 2018, 21:37:50 »
Hi guys, I'm without my Omega this week due to rust repair - replacement of both rear panels.
I'm searching for part number or at least a name of the black piece of protection that is glued on the body panel and 
is hidden when the door is shut. It follows the rear arch line from cill covers toward the lock on the panel.
Curently searcing for a pic of it :-\

Omega General Help / Alloy cam covers
« on: 06 June 2018, 18:44:53 »
Can't get those anywhere. I'm planning to repair rusty rear panels  this month followed by cambelt change and everything that goes with it, oil cooler too....I'll see if I'll replace leaking AC compressor ....long story short - if anyone has Veccy's  alloy cam covers just laying around for affordable price it would be the right moment to change them while I have it all appart.

Omega General Help / Another air con question
« on: 31 May 2018, 20:46:51 »
Hi guys, my air con never worked as it should - at least when I compare it to my previous MFL... Regased it last year - a little improvement shown but not as it should. Today I went to work and all I got from vents was slightly cold air.
Concidering that system has no leak, compressor kicks in, everything mechanicaly works as it should , would it make any difference if I clean/wash condenser? It could be full of all sort of things since it sits in front and maybe just can't work as it's supposed to.
Any thoughts about this?

General Car Chat / Another cup holder solution
« on: 27 April 2018, 17:23:38 »
I obviously had too much time on my hands so I did this  ;)

Can't find a way to paste pics directly, I'm really sorry.
I found this item on ebay for 10, ordered 2 din mounting frame, painted it black and made a frame around radio and cup holder from plywood leftovers which had to be cut, sanded, primered and spray coloured black.
As you can see cup holder is a bit to near to shift knob but isn't touching it

General Car Chat / Opinions please

Would you go for it? Ignore the price ::)  that's how it is where I live and it's negotiable anyway

3.0 manual with 155.000 miles on a clock, elite spec,  former state owned car
Are these manuals more reliable than auto?
Thanks in advance Stan

General Car Chat / MOT
« on: 20 February 2018, 19:21:31 »
Passed it today with flying colours 8) and no advisories (don't take rear wing surface rust as advisory ::) )
Another year of motoring for my Omega. Paid 155 road tax and 330 for insurance.
She needs some work to be done when summer arives but nothing major  :y

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

Omega General Help / Is it urgent?
« on: 24 August 2017, 18:30:24 »

Done only 45.000km....who knows what cambelt looks like  :-X :-[

General Car Chat / Thank you
« on: 22 August 2017, 10:56:44 »
Omegod, for aranging delivery of abs unit to me - thank you million times and thank you for this forum guys.
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
