Omega General Help / Re: Oil on coil pack
« on: 09 March 2020, 11:05:36 »
The how2 in the maintenance section, is very good.  Follow it and you will not have any problems. I found that the most awkward fiddly part on the 2.2 I had was unclipping the cam sensor connection.

The only piece missing in the how2, is to check the metal pipe on the back right side of the engine, for crud in it.

This is taken from the 2.0 cam cover replace, in the maintenance section.

Inspect the metal breather pipe for clogging of any contamination. if contamination present then from underneath the car undo and remove the breather pipe from the main block. Once removed you must clean thoroughly to unblock contamination. Once this is done then replace but add a smear of gasket sealant to breather and replace. Do up the two bolts until tight.

2.2 how2

The pipe mentioned above is in this how2. very bottom picture

Hope this helps.

ATP wishbones EBAY

Complete kit

I have been looking at getting just the ATP and maybe fit Polybushes and lemforder back bush into the arms.  So can use the car while getting the replacements sorted?

That way don't have to worry about the tightening up of the wishbone, if using Poly bushes if I understand. Hopefully someone will correct me if wrong.

Before I ordered my NTK O2 sensor, I contacted NTK Technical Department. I gave them the  VIN:, Date registered, Registration Number. Make, Model, Engine Size and Engine Code. 

The O2 that was supposed to fit my 2ltr, was the wrong one. When they checked against their files, I needed the earlier one, OTA7H-3C2 (Stock code 0420) Titanium Lambda even though my car is a 1995 first registered, so can only assume it was a ealier build? The Titania Lambda, which their webcat and other sites say fits mine, is OTA7L-3C4 (0431), which is not correct. So might be worth you contacting them, to check?

NGK Technical Email address:-

Hope this is of some help?


He is still in Stoke on trent? The number I have for him, is not recognised anymore. Would love to have a chat with him again. Great guy to chat to when feeling crap. Cheers you up no end.

Still around.

Left car with MOT place, who got it through emissions. Never asked how :) I fitted a genuine GM thermostat, as the one fitted seemed to open early.

Have done a vacuum test, shows engine in good condition, so assuming no vac leaks. Done a fuel pressure test which was down slightly, so going to change out the fuel filter recently done for another one. Fuel pressure regulator seems to be working. When vac pipe is removed fuel pressure jumps up. No leak down when left for a while. So maybe with low pressure the fuel is not a mist but slightly droplets from injectors?

Car goes great, pulls even up steep hills and even happy to do national speed limits. Economy is also good.

As said in above reply, only other thing. Is that the cat is from a company I have used before on my vehicles, but it isn't a type approved. So might get a approved one.

Good luck with getting it sorted. If you manage to do it, please let me know. Will be worth finding out what it was.

Car is off the road for now, as some wagon reversed into passenger side front wing. So took out wheel well liner to check for hidden damage. While under there checked on wishbone bushes, as it is pulling to one side when braking. Brake system checks out ok, but wishbone bushes look ready for changing. So got poly bushes for front and normal for back ones. Read that polys give better handling, also the wishbones can be tightened up with wheels in the air. Then got to find someone closer than WIM to do geometry setup, not using manufacturers recommended ones.

Thank you both for the quick replies.


Omega General Help / Do later front wings fit the prefacelift Omegas
« on: 15 February 2020, 17:46:22 »
Can anyone tell me if the later front wings will fit a 1995 Omega? Just wandered if they are different because of the bonnet style.

Someone has decided to put a big dent in the wifes passenger wing.

Thanks in advance for any help.


General Car Chat / Has anyone looked into 90467543 Top hat 3D printed
« on: 13 February 2020, 14:04:31 »
As the subject says. Has anyone thought about having the top hat seal 3D printed? Surely in this day and age, to make something like that should be simple to make? There must be a filament that can withstand the heat of the engine?

Just thinking aloud.

General Discussion Area / OOF Shop will not let me order

I have been trying to order the V6 Cambelt DVD. I cannot get past the registration details, as it does not have County Durham in the drop down list of the State/Province section. Is there a way to get round it?

Thanks in advance

Mouse on laptop decided, to play silly higlighting everything. When trying to unhighlight it caught font size. But may be he might just notice.  ;D

I have been trying to get hold of him. As was going to ask if he would do the rocker cover gaskets as they are starting to weep, at the same time as he was doing the belt and waterpump that I have purchased on his recommendations.

Yes I am now living in West Cornforth. As you say not far from you. :y

General Discussion Area / Does anyone speak to Daz (Darth Loo Knee)?
« on: 05 February 2020, 14:16:58 »
I know it is a long shot but does anyone speak to Daz? He was going to come upto Scotland to do my 2.6 timing belt. I have sinced moved and the Mobile Number he gave me, to make arrangements is incorrect.  If anyone does speak to him, would it be possible for you let him know that I have been trying to get hold of him. And that I will leave him a PM on here, or if anyone could PM me I can give you my Number for him to contact me.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Fuel filter, or maybe fuel pressure regulator faulty? Do a google on the symptoms of these. See if someone can do a fuel pressure test for you, will give you some idea of how the fuel system is working. Someone else with alot more experience will be along, to give you more ideas, of where to check.

it will help to see the UV dye if it is reasonably dark, as the UV torch is not powerfull in bright light. As I have one of those kits, in my toolbox.
