General Discussion Area / Calling our resident Gatwick expert....

What's the best car park to use, if parking there for a week.

The airport itself or off site? I've used Purple Parking before, but it's been a few years.

General Car Chat / Jack Pad Adaptors
« on: 12 September 2016, 12:14:39 »
On the VW and many new cars I noticed, there is no huge nice big area to jack the car up, unlike the Omega. They all have the rail, which the normal scissor jack slots into, not good for DIY jobs.

So after research found these:

You remove a gromit underneath the car, you assemble the two parts and essentially press them into the chassis. It's a one time fit, that then provides an easy place to jack the car.

YouTube: [Keep watching till at least 2 mins, shows them being fitted]

Further research has mixed views, some say all great, others say the car should not be lifted on a single side, that these should only be used on 4 post lifts.


General Car Chat / Oil Extractor
« on: 12 September 2016, 11:24:21 »
Can those who use an oil extractor give any recommendations?

With my new VW TDi, as the oil filter is accessible from above, I plan on using one.

Would need to have 5-6L capacity I think.  :-\

Omega General Help / Side Skirt Removal
« on: 03 September 2016, 09:06:26 »
I'm going to pop the side skirts off the 2.2 this morning, what do we think I'll find?  :D

If I'm serek fitting to fit new clutch, possible new suspension & air-con rad to my trusty steed, I think I need to double check it's not rotten there.

Never had an advisory to rust before, but it's always been fairly rusty underneath and the bottom of the doors and arches are starting to go.

Omega General Help / Air-Con Compressor
« on: 31 August 2016, 23:59:06 »
Option B instead of replacing the 2.2 is I splash some cash and give the 2.2 a bit of love, one thing that failed about 8 years ago is the aircon. But i'd really like it working again, so given the compressor has not fired since about 2008 I think a new one is in order...

Any other sources?

Omega General Help / 2.2 Petrol Clutch Replacement.
« on: 31 August 2016, 15:31:08 »
So for laughs I rang my local Vauxhall Specialist, as my clutch on 2.2 is on it's last legs. There is no way I could change one myself and a fatty little admin felt it's not a job for him and garage.

So I've used this local place before just for MOT's, been happy with what they do. Failed it on rear light and emissions two weeks ago, let me take it away and fix it and come back for a free re-test. Normally they say they must use their own parts, but had no problem me fixing a few bulbs.

Firstly I was told the DMF wheel must be changed with a 2.2 clutch?  :-\ He was clear this must be done, it's only available from Vauxhall and its 609+ vat  :o

Without DMF, but saying he would not do it without. Came in at 575 all fitted.  ;D

Might as well keep driving it till clutch let's go  :(

Omega General Help / 3.2 Coolant Leak
« on: 17 August 2016, 11:33:23 »
The 3.2 has developed a leak, I can see moisture around where the engine block meets gearbox bell housing. It's dripping from two torx bolts, that said there is moisture around the engine sump.

Checked HBV, pipes all dry. Appears to loose coolant on the move, nothing much on the ground after being parked up. Lost around 2 fingers worth from header tank from 25 mile run, clear whiff of coolant when opening the door after stopping.

Had good feel around back of the block, can't feel anything. Can only think of the oil cooler plate or coolant bridge? But would expect bigger losses, oil looks fine.

Just what I don't need this week.  :(

Thanks  :y

Omega General Help / LPG Injectors: Valtek Vs OMVL
« on: 13 August 2016, 19:38:36 »
If I do go the route of LPG'ing the 3.2, the two main kits on fleabay are the same bar the injectors.

329 - Valtek
339 - OMVL

Full Kit:

ECU STAG-300 ISA2 with wiring loom
Reducer SHARK
Injectors rail REG OMVLx2 3 ohm
Map/vacuum sensor PS-02
Temperature sensor

There is nothing in it price wise really, but what are the OMVL injectors like? I have Valtek on the 2.2, happy with them but with 3.2 need something bit more performance focused with extra horses it has.

Omega General Help / Play in rear prop shaft bearing
« on: 13 August 2016, 14:37:08 »
Would play in rear prop shaft bearing cause a knocking, from rear over speed bumps?

Get a metallic knocking sound on rough roads and speed bumps from the rear, can't find any play in anything but prop shaft bearing

They offer excellent value, something like this:

09 plate, loads of kit, low miles. Hummm, might need to drive one.

Think JasonM has the earlier model?  :-\
