Would you go for it? Ignore the price ::)  that's how it is where I live and it's negotiable anyway

3.0 manual with 155.000 miles on a clock, elite spec,  former state owned car
Are these manuals more reliable than auto?
Thanks in advance Stan

Winter tyres of course but you can slide every corner whenever you want to.

Me again guys, yesterday EML lit for a second right in the middle of some Italian tune up while accelerating from toll booths (which I don't consider ilegal and even less dangerous ::)) when changing from 3-rd to 4-th at 6000rpm. I went to check for codes today and got 12, 31, 74....So IIRC 31 is normal, 74 is MAF sensor voltage high but what is 12? ??? Or did I misscalculate flashes....
BTW, she s going to turn her 100.000 miles today which is quite low mileage for almost 18 year old barge :y

Yes I saw, will order oil cooler from your country - it's cheaper than from Germany, already have the stat, reuse the pipe - just replace O-rings, already have water pump and aux belt pulley prepared. Only things to get now are washers for coolant bridge, cambelt set and aux belt. Then just some rust repair in summer and I hope she'll be fine for next 4 years.

This one should do the trick

Well I changed coolant 3 years was blue coolant in it before. I'll change oil cooler for the sake of it while it's all apart, just need to find all bits and pieces now.

Those were my thoughts exactly, thanks :y
Is this sealant the right one for oil cooler plate seal?

Hi guys, last year I found a cause of coolant leak and decided to sort it out at the same time as cambelt which is planned for this summer.
The question is: Is it adviceable to replace entire oil cooler while I'm there or just reseal an old cooler plate?
Oil cooler isn't mixing oil and coolant  for now.
If anyone has any parts laying around  I could use here, let me know.
Thanks in advance, Stan

Omega General Help / Re: Engine temperature gauge at over 100C
« on: 13 October 2017, 19:58:19 »

I believe it's lower one, with three pins. As far as I remember on my previous 2.0 16v, fans kicked in at around 96C as stage one as you say and never reached over 100C

Could it be thermo switch fault? Disconnect thermoswitch and short the wire therminals to see which fan should be activated when temp reaches 96 deg and speed of it.
Thermoswitch is cheap as chips and easy to replace for a start

Not worth it - my opinion only. I had one before, sold it after HG failed. It never ran again after next owner tried to fix it. Why not buying good X25XE engine? MPG is the same, only thing that is different is as you said maintenance work. But when you have engine out you can replace alternator and starter motor which are in akward places.
Just found one close enough...rottten as hell, no MOT but running engine and a lot of parts...and LPG

The result....
After checking on cambelt and timing - everything is still spot on and looking ok.
Then I went to search for a coolant leak and found oil cooler plate leaking.
Assembled it all together without touching anything than aux belt which was close to failure. Sometime next year omega will need cambelt replacement due to mileage and I'll do it all together while I'm there.

Has anyone tried ebay oil cooler that cost around 150?
Those are the cheapest I could find. Regards, Stan
