Omega General Help / Re: Drain torque converter
« on: 04 July 2018, 10:34:32 »
how much auto box fluid is in the cooler rad and lines ?
is it worth draining ?
do you disconnect both lines and let it drain out or will it just drain with the sumps removed anyway
i have to do mine soon
TIA  :)

Pop off the bottom pipe to drain it, check guide under maintenance guide/index which details the pipe removal

Had a look through rads with torch and can clearly see right through fins. Not really convinced they are blocked bad enough to cause it not too cool. While my pressure gauge is showing into the green, compressor kicks in and fans running when an on, any other thoughts what it could be. I measured temp of compressor and pipes with infra red temp reader, getting 40 oC on LP pipes, 70  odd on comp and associated pipes. Condenser was about 38 on passenger side, 32 on driver side

I am thinking of changing box oil soon and reading the guide seen that only 5 litres got removed from a possible 8. Does tc also have a drain plug? Don't see point in leaving 3 litres of old oil in there.

You can, but you'll need to remove the radiator and condenser in order to remove the fans...


Not just the 2 fans behind grill, they have to come out backways towards engine? There is one fan in front of rad, 2 at grill side. I take it air con fans don't come out front ways?

Is it easy enough to access the condenser,  do I need to remove the fans only to get in to check it's clean?

Just removed the power sounder for peace of mind. I seen that someone had already unplugged the sounder but not the siren so perhaps was causing problems for previous owner.

Certainly the box "looks" ok but I don't know what it is like inside. It looks like it is sealed together so I think I would need to break it to get it open or at least prize the shell apart, which would potentially break the cover.

Disable the touchscreen, and see if that improves it - it might be ultra sensitive.  If that cures, then look for reducing sensitivity in driver.

There is touch point app thing that opens each time I start machine, I just closed it there and it seems ok.

I've just inherited a Packard Bell M3700 integrated desktop, basically a big screen with a computer inside. It has this on screen touchpad thing which I don't need and it sits quietly in the top corner of the screen. It also has this peculiar problem where the mouse is jumping about the screen, right clicking and doing weird stuff. It also seems to change the tabs and if I am typing the cursor just disappears as if it had clicked off the screen' it's happened about 8 times while typing this. It also seemed to refresh this page when I was typing this out so had to type all again.

I've tried virus/malware scan, done all the updates, checked another mouse, turned off all the usual guff that was running in the background and it is still doing it. I even tried running in safe mode but was still doing it. I am going to try running virus scan in safe mode as I had that before on another PC where the virus could hide itself from the scanner in normal windows mode.

In the meantime any other things I can check?

Block of wood between subframe bush bolt area and where rear chassis leg comes out from that area, jack up, then axle stand on rear sill jacking point. Doing that allows jack to be out the way enough to get axle stand on sill.

Getting back to the original point. Out of curiosity I have been out and had a look for the TPS on mine (assuming in the region of front of plenum) but cant find it !  ??? :-[

There is a plug on left side just under and to the left of bellows air intake bit, i think that's where it resides. My plug securing clip was broke off when i done TB so had to secure plug with tie wrap as it was actually causing running problems and codes

Biggest problem with the dealers on there, was regularly the parts had been sold, and the advert was months out of date.

Yeah i noticed that with quite a few bits, would make sense to link it to the national dealers stock so it was a bit more up to date.o

Boo hoo where we goning to get cheap dealer ex-stock now?

That'll be that damn PSA takeover probably! Have noticed a lot of parts suddenly becoming obsolete since that takeover - coincidence?

I had this on my 2.6 and it turned out clip holding plug onto throttle area was broke and the plug was drifting off causing intermittent connection and subsequent stalling. Just put a tie wrap round ot till i get round to splicing a new plug onto the loom.
