General Car Chat / Zafira Tourer - Service ESP
« on: 12 September 2018, 10:51:41 »
So, MrsT had to stop abruptly at a round about this morning, straight after this 'Service ESP' came up on the dash.

I'll pop the code reader in tonight, but googling other forums is a bit rubbish, no real detail on what the problem is.

Generally suggests ABS sensor, with mostly like cause washer broken.  :-\

This is about best thread I've found.

Anyone else seen this before?

General Discussion Area / Question about extensions
« on: 06 September 2018, 14:22:28 »
Our house is detached, therefore I can extend 4m back from the property within permitted development.

What happens if it's just outside that? say 4.1 metres? As to extend and match the garage wall line, which is what I want to do, it is fractionally longer than 4m.

Would that need planning permission?

Builder said he's only had one inspector measure and that was due to neighbour of the extension complaining.

Finally had a decent builder around and quote is within budget, so it's plan B for us if we cannot move.

General Car Chat / E10 Petrol
« on: 28 August 2018, 21:03:05 »
Stumbled across this:

It states that cars registered prior to 2002 should not use it, given Omega's engines date essentially from 90's guess it's going to be a problem?


"Drivers are advised to contact car manufacturers with any questions surrounding their specific vehicle. For example, Vauxhall says ďE10 fuel can be used in all petrol-engine Vauxhall vehicles except models with the 2.2-litre direct-injection petrol engine (code Z22YH) used in Vectra, Signum and Zafira.Ē

As they mention Signum/Vectra that's not been in production for years, suggest GM V6 still good?

Rumoured E10 fuel will start to be sold here soon, to meet emissions targets.   :(

General Discussion Area / Big thanks to b4ndit
« on: 22 August 2018, 20:37:56 »
So as many may know, the rear brake servo pipe to plenum on my 3.2 suffers from a leak, which I have temp fixed.

I posted in parts wanted and b4ndit posted me a complete pipe and it arrived today.  :y :y

Best bit, is he would not take any PayPal moneys, not even for postage, no matter how many times I asked for his details.

So true OOF spirit  :y :y

*if anyone does have his PayPal, please send it to me, so I can force some monies on him!

General Car Chat / Zafira Tourer - Service
« on: 22 August 2018, 12:53:11 »
Time for the Zafira to get a service, but I'm really tempted to do this DIY. Since I can do a V6 Omega, how hard can it be.  :D

Firstly I was tempted to use Vauxhall, so I could blag an Insignia for the day, to see what they are like, but all they would offer me is a Corsa.  :(

Secondly, they automatically added on a brake fluid change at cost of £40, because Vauxhall "highly" recommend it, but the chap kindly informed me he put it on there for me...... like he was doing me a favour. As it was not part of the 'Full Service' - So for £288, feel I should do this myself and do it right.

But I'm struggling for resources, appears to be nothing out there for Tourer, but it's better for the Insignia.

For oil filter location, is it same between Insignia and '14 Zaf Tourer? (2.0 CDTi 163bhp) eg:

On another note, why can't Vauxhall put the oil filter in a sensible location? VW it was easily accessible from engine bay, looks like I need to take wheel off to get access.

Air filter looks ok, coolant looks a pig to fill tucked away at the back.

Pollen filter looks like need to take glove box out, but cannot find any guides on this.

General Car Chat / Astra 1.6T Petrol - Coolant Leak
« on: 12 August 2018, 15:50:20 »
Next door have a 1.6 T Astra J, it's developed a water leak. I've offered to get it up on my ramps for a look, I've never stuck my head under the bonnet of an Astra.

Off to Google for common areas, but any areas I should really check? I'll be looking around belt areas for water pump leak, HBV (if I can locate it) and radiator area.

General Car Chat / Fitting Wheel Spacers
« on: 25 July 2018, 10:45:23 »
Not for me, but car share buddy's 2018 BMW M140i.

As I've got the tools/driveway space, doing it at mine. I've looked a few videos, looks simple enough: Remove wheel, adding spacer to hub, put wheel back on and using the longer wheel nuts provided.

Anything else I should look out for?

General Car Chat / Just 6 Omegaís on autotrader....
« on: 23 July 2018, 22:09:42 »
Well, 9 technically but 2 have sold and one is a limo version.

Just 6 standard ones on there, can remember a time with 100ís listed.  :(

Omega General Help / Sunroof Seal
« on: 13 July 2018, 20:45:32 »
Itís not leaking, but there is an awful lot of wind noise from the front of it. Iíve had it open a few times in hot weather, to cool car down quicker. Sure itís noiser, perhaps not sealed as well. Nice steady 85mph cruise, I had to close the blind itís that annoying.

Does look all cracked and such, it is a 16 years old...

Easy to replace? Worth doing?

General Car Chat / Uh-oh
« on: 05 July 2018, 16:57:14 »
My car share buddy has just ordered a M140i, with manual box.

Hopefully it proves more reliable than Jimmy's  :o

Does make me wonder though, he is about 6 years younger than me, does own/mortgage his own place. But cruises around in brand new high spec BMW's.

I just use a 16 year old rusting banger barge  :-[  :D  ;D
