Fuse FI 20 is described as protecting Yaw rate sensor (ESP - then R in a circle, then PLus). This meant, and still means, nothing to me. Had it been 'Clutch Switch' then I imagine we would have come straight to it. Shame on Vauxhall, say I. Every other fuse protection is unambiguous, not FI 20.

IIRC as fitted to all Airbus A/C and the 737 MAx. ::)
That'll never be an issue tnen :D

I presumed you are in the same place as I brought over the lpg bits a while back... ;)

A US Destroyer has just taken out an Iranian drone. So that makes it quits, I guess.  ;)
Meanwhile, in other New, Iran Air are missing an Airbus :-X

Media is keeping that one quiet ::)
It was a tongue firmly in cheek reference to Flight 655 that the US shot down 'by accident' in 1988 ;)

The end is nigh.

Are our boards ready yet?
When I went to get them made, fella told me there was a 12 month waiting list  ;D

Then mine will be at Calais for 300 years stuck in customs waiting for your paperwork. You wont know what to send as parliament is suspended. People will miss the end.  Agh.
It ain't over until the fat lady sings her last...

Anyone seen SuBo lately  :-\

V90 is I think a nice looking car and if it holds to the Volvo norm it will be comfy too. :y As Sir Tig points out Volvo have followed most[all?]manufacturers and gone for form over function by sloping the rear and cutting down on loadspace.

It's surprising the difference this makes. My V70 is about the same size as it's predecessor the BMW 530d but I've been able to get stuff in the V70 that I wouldn't have been able to with the BMW because of the sloping tailgate. Sofa's for example.  :)

I've had Omega estate,w124 Merc estate and now Saab 9-5 estate,biggest load lugger was The Merc by far
Which given that they are relatively narrow is quite impressive  :y

That's a lot of outrage for entirely predictable things. Or are you genuinely surprised  :-\

The missing small tanker, the Riah, has been towed to an Iranian port for mechanical repairs. Mystery solved.
Ermm.....possibly. A ship of about that size has been impounded for 'smuggling fuel'.
Presumably they will empty it to check ::)

Omega General Help / Re: V6 engine rebuilt or what?
« on: Yesterday at 15:54:48 »
Apparently no longer available from Vauxhall, but I was dealing with a retard. Needed reg or chassis number, gearbox and engine ident code. Gave him a 3.2 reg and computer said no.

Take your car to your nearest Opel dealer and ask :y

The car will behave like a jelly whenever you accelerate or brake. Drop links bang as though a wheel has just fallen of at every bump :D

LPG injector surely
No harm in swapping it with the one on cylinder 2 and see if the fault moves banks... :-\

I thought that, but runs perfectly on petrol, and i did coils (Bosch) about 25,000 ago.
I will pull the plugs again.
I cant understand it.
Lpg is sensitive to weak plugs ;)
