General Car Chat / silly question
« on: 27 June 2016, 19:54:19 »
ive got a mini facelift 2000 mv6 3.0 in antelope mica , its done 180,000 just motd got lpg and irmscher bumpers and full heated leather , though the doors have bubbled through and both rear arches are going , so my question to the good people on here is it worth anything ,i know the other year  it took a few months to find a spare set mv6 wheels so i could have winter tyres on them and normal on my other standard mv6 wheels

thank you in advance

Omega General Help / heater never gets HOT ! help
« on: 19 January 2016, 17:14:45 »
ive owned this car for well over 6 years now and back when i 1st had it i really loved the way it warmed up the inside of the car very quickly , now its tbh total crap , i have done the following ...
drained flushed and refilled the cooling system , the engine gets up to temp very quick and sits just below half way and never moves now ,
replaced the heater bypass valve in the engine bay again ,
replaced the 'hedgehog' under the passenger side of the dash board ,

its really the most annoying thing with an otherwise lovely to drive and great car , any advice please as im fed up with it never really warming up , its even worse if you out the fan on full , i just leave it on 4 and put up with it

thanks in advance

Omega General Help / mv6 acting funny ?
« on: 12 August 2015, 16:09:42 »
hi all !

i was out driving on sunday when i started the car for the return home , i noticed the rev counter was pulsing badly , i stopped the car switched off the engine , blipped the alarm restarted the car and all was fine , however when i reached the motorway and went to engage the cruise control , it didnt work ?!?  all the home even with fuel stops i had no cruise control , yet yesterday the car had no faults and everything was working including cruise control  .

today after finishing work i started the car as usual however today there was no rev counter , no speedo and no fuel gauge working , i drove a couple of miles , the rev counter was small pulsing  , pulled over still no speedo or fuel gauage , stop the car switched off engine set the alarm , unset the alarm and restarted the car , fule gauge is working but no rev counter this is still pulsing  i drove home with no speedo and no rev counter , got home put the code reader on and all i got was rpm signnal (31) , my question to you good guys and gals , is the crank sensor fubar  , and is the car going to be ok to use for work ( i commute 52 miles every day) as i dont want the sensor failing during my drive as im shifts .

many thanks
