SNAP, same colour as my elite.

Mine is the same too. it doesn't leak pools of oil like it used to but it does use more than it used to (especially on a long run obviously) and it does puff out some oil from the exhaust not to mention the clatter on startup which does quieten down thankfully but probably means the oilways need a good clearout before the engine eventually dies.

My tensioner completely seized up and started to shred the belt.. but I was lucky because I had just pulled up outside the house and noticed the god awful noise it was making and switched off quickly.

Hi Tony. You can have them for the cost of postage which obviously wont be much.

I don't suppose you have anymore heater hoses do you? as my top one has been leaking for months despite the trimming down and using a metal clip.

When I had problems with water coming in on the drivers side all I did was to squirt some WD40 down both drain tubes and that seemed to cure it which probably means it wasn't that badly blocked.

I used the reinz gaskets on mine and it doesn't leave pools of oil everywhere, for now anyway..

General Car Chat / Re: Ever had a car stolen?
« on: 24 September 2019, 21:44:06 »
Although it came close twice.. the first was a mk2 escort which I saw the git opening and shouted at to clear off which he did. and the second was a mk3 Granada that I found out someone had tried to pinch the following day when I found the door unlocked and a ford key jammed in the lock.

The MOT history suggests that its not been that well cared for...

I still need to get the blank key I bought from Alasdair cut so I have a spare for my car if I need it..

Tesco has been the cheapest again this year for me. but I obviously needed to cancel the previous policy as they wanted to put the price up despite no claims being made by me.


Omega General Help / Re: V6 engine rebuilt or what?
« on: 13 July 2019, 23:50:27 »
I have thought about fitting a 3.0/3.2 or better still a V8  ;D to my car as i miss the extra grunt that my previous 3.2 had. because even half decent 3.2 estates are rather thin on the ground.


Omega General Help / Re: Rear shock turret rusty - what to do?
« on: 19 June 2019, 13:07:15 »
When I changed the shocks on my x reg one the metalwork was solid so I greased them up for good measure. trouble was a Frenchman in a mokka slammed into the side of the car writing it off  >:(.
