Get yourself a diesel. The oil level goes up instead of down in one of them babies.  ;D

The Terracan is a diesel 😎

Then your injectors are not leaking diesel enough to keep the sump topped up :o  ;D

This concerns a pre-facelift 2.5 V6, doesn't it?

I'm struggling a bit to understand how a hole in one of the centre boxes can affect the lambda reading, as the centre sections are downstream of the cats and the lambda sensors? How would a new exhaust fix that?
any hole in the exhaust will suck air in (venturi ) , the MOT emission machine has it's own lambda sensor (does not use the cars sensors ) so, extra air screws the reading ,results in a fail , even though the cars pre and post cat lambdas are working and adjusting the mix

plug the holes in the exhaust and lambda will return to tolerance  :y
I grow increasingly alarmed about reports on this forum of MOT failures on Omega brake pipes. I've done plenty of mile in older(ish) Carltons and Senators and never had to replace a brake pipe. That said easily repairable.

but the original steel pipe is far better/stronger , you just need to clean and protect brake pipes before taking a car for an mot ,as part of an pre MOT check over.

congratulations on the pass  :)

I've always cleaned examined and greased metal brake lines and the ferrules on the flexis ,every year during a pre MOT check .

MOT testers have a corrosion assessment tool, the screwdriver end is to scrape rust on things like brake lines to asses if the rust is serious enough to warrant a Fail .

I guess they just cover themselves with that advisory note

could well be the fill solenoid leaking cheap and easy fix :y

assuming the machine has a dedicated waste  :-\
(not a shared waste with a sink ,which, if partly blocked, could backfill the machine with sink water .

Just buy the love of your life a new washing machine Varche. She deserves it rather than you buggering around with a 15 year old example!
what will Mrs Varche do the washing with  :-\

That machine is not like an Omega of that age, and is just fit for the scrappy :D :D ;)
I doubt a new machine will last 15 years  ::)
