« on: 09 April 2017, 01:04:55 »
Hi all,  Have a coolant leak.... on the tray below the engine looks like I found remnants of the radiator( like strips concertina type weak alli metal) .. very brittle  too touch.. I run the engine to a hot temp and noticed  a drip passenger side near rad... think its the radiator will remove the protective  tray and hopefully see more clearly... if it is the radiator any know where to find a replacement .. the cars old but shes worth it lol .. any guesses to a second hand price replacement... thanks all.

Omega General Help / 2.6 Auto 2003 OMEGA Engine Oil Leak
« on: 09 January 2017, 10:43:26 »
Hi all, have had a small engine oil leak now for some time...( found a yellowish coloured oil on the drive today not seen this colour before maybe outside temperatures causing this) its coming from drivers side of the engine(upper rear corner area) which leaks onto the exhaust  and smokes when hot.. any ideas for gasket kits/ replacements and cost... I know it wont be cheap considering what needs to be removed... shes an old bird but runs sweet would like to keep her running as long as possible.
Thanks in advance.

Omega General Help / Fuel Pump(Suspected)
« on: 31 May 2016, 17:41:30 »
Hi All and thanks in advance.
car - Omega 2.6, 2003 saloon. Automatic
Car engine stalled suddenly no warnings no engine management light came on.
Called out the break down services who could not find any codes/diagnostic but said it was the fuel pump on its way out.. Once home and after a couple of hours I tried starting the car.. it started I left it running for half an hour all seemed ok.
The following day I again left the car running for an hour or so all seemed fine.
I took it for a spin and after 15 minutes it cut out again.
The breakdown recovery guy tried an easy start solution and the car started again  and he followed me home but on the way the car cut out again.
Seems like the fuel pump intermittent problem and can only get worse so I have arranged with my local mechanic to have a new one fitted with a new filter.

Wondered if you guys  would blame the problem on the pump?
Is the pump in the tank and if so does the tank need to be removed...(added a full tank of fuel )

looking at the prices of pump some go from 35 upto 160 but ive seen one on europarts  for 105  which came up after I added my car registration - (is this ok)
Bosch Fuel Pump (In Tank)Product Code: 441720070
Fuel Pump (In Tank)
Non-Stock Item - Available to Order(Usually Dispatched in 24-48 Hrs*)

Thanks all

Omega General Help / coolant leak
« on: 30 September 2014, 07:03:50 »
Hello all,   Vauxhall Omega 2.6 2003 model auto saloon.
I have noticed the car seems to be leaking coolant more regular than normal.
on my last trip I topped up the filler tank and completed a round trip of approx. 500 miles, upon my return the filler tank was approximately 50% full.. I don't think this is normal.
I have been monitoring this for a week or so  but cannot find leaks anywhere near the pipes/connections.
There are no signs of oil on the dipstick or oil filler cap.. just clean regular oil.
I have  read a little about this and a lot say it could be the water pump.. now when I start the car from cold  I can hear a slight rattle.. but it goes within a minute or so or even less, but the rest of the day nothing will be heard when firing up.
Just wondered if you good people had any pointers.
Thanks In advance

will get back to you in a few days on hols internet connection  is poor lol.

Omega General Help / Autobox Fluid
« on: 28 March 2014, 18:58:52 »
Hi, I have owned the car for a few years now (2003 Omega 2.6) and have not changed the autobox fluid... but I am planning to have done in a couple of weeks time because I do tow a caravan and maybe that gives more reason too.

In the good old days we could check the box fluid level - How is it done on my vehicle ..or am I missing something. :-[

Thanks In Advance

Omega General Help / Water Leak -Name this part lol
« on: 25 March 2014, 09:31:35 »
Hi, I realised I was loosing a minimal amount of water and it is minimal.. after looking everywhere I noticed  a small drip coming form this part please see the photo.
The leak is where I have added the white line and it appears to be in the area where 3 screws connect one part to another.. maybe its a gasket fix .. What is this part? or any here fixed the same.

Thanks in Advance

Hi all, had a blockage within the windscreen washer lines... I thought I  would take off the pipe connected to the pump and clean/flush the system..... whoops the pipe came off but it came off with the small plastic tube which is suppose to remain on the pump.. so now need a replacement ..
wondered if any here  have  a pump to fit a Omega 2003 2.6 saloon for window washer only (smaller pump of the two).

If you do PM  me please.
Thanks In Advance.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / XENON Ballast Box
« on: 29 January 2014, 17:12:19 »
Hi all, sorry if there is already a thread regarding the same .. I have tried to find one  with no joy.

I have a Omega 2003  model with xenon lights.

The passenger headlight some times lights up and sometimes does not when I turn on the lights.
When it does light up after turning on and off quickly the bulb will stay on for ever, until I turn it off again.. and then the same procedure is required in most cases.

I think the ballast maybe at fault.. is there a vid showing how to replace it or its location, any information will be appreciated.  I have seen a replacement on ebay  with a bulb  >>   

Thanks in advance.

« on: 06 June 2011, 12:16:33 »
Hi all I noticed only one of the front o/s drivers side tyres is worn on the inner only about 2 inches, the other n/s tyre is fine.
Is this a tracking or wheel alignment problem?
I have never had one wear before normally both front, any ideas?

« on: 12 June 2007, 15:53:21 »
Hi all, recently my coolant needs replacing more than usual, saw no signs of water/antifreeze on the drive.. i got underneath for a better inspection and found a clean orange thickish in texture substance. my antifreeze is orange(longlife). the substance doesnt drip like water.. i noticed a orange ' ish area nearer the top n/s/r of the engine only visible from underneath.. sounds to me like a cylinder head gasket.. :( checked the oil no water contamination, filler coolant bottle is also clear.. the car performs as it should.. running temp normal. 2003 2.6  a liitle over 50,000 miles lol serviced every year.. thought the gasket would last longer than that lol... any ideas..?

Thanks Dave
