It's a bit like saying 'my lawn doesn't go stripey when I mow it'. You'll be offered101 suggestions as each one doesn't quite work. Then finally, you mention that you use a goat instead of a roller mower, and, by the way a whole family of moles live under it.

If you believe that the chip is the root of your issues, fit a stock ecu and report back... ;)
Thanks Doc, I love your simile. I thought that Senator ECUs were interchangeable, but Omega ECUs were not, as they contain customised information like ignition and alarm codes.
Post 96 ones are paired to the immobiliser

...Just checked who I ordered some Omega bits for a while back that hasn't turned up yet, and yup, ATP.

Fickless 'tards  >:(

As said earlier via text, its blatantly obvious how it fits to servo when you have the replacement in front of you.

I have known the elbow to break on removal, probably due to age/brittleness, so don't attempt it until you have the new servo to plenum pipe.

I get a feeling I've been over that one.

I'm more upset about the damaged bridge on the A422 between here and Banburyshire though.

If you have a proper name, you don't need a number ::)

Or if you got in there Google have been reading your email for years ago..  :D

FTFY. :y
I did have the sense to pick a decent Gmail address a long time ago and very useful it is too  :y But I do assume that Google is reading everything I send and receive  hence the desire for a separate email account.

Considering they track anyone making searches or using Google maps, even when you've told them not track you and have location services off, it's not a far jump to reading email.
Not to mention all the shit Chrome and Android report back...

...and of course google read email, but probably for no other purpose than to target ads.

Got nowhere trying to fix the Infotainment in the Pussy. I have a sneaking suspicion this could end up being expensive...

You really shouldn't be getting a dpf warning the way you drive. How many miles on the pussy?
Since the 460 mile trek back from Scotland? About 10 when the DPF warning came on.  Its now out following a steady drive up the dual carriageway.

Get a domain name.  Will save all these issues in the future.

Very few ISPs offer web space now. Try to remain independent of the ISP...


I'm with Zen, no issues, but not the cheapest. I have "odd" requirements, including OOF, which means moving would be a lot of pain.

Fark, a house full of gas wouldn't have done a TB - it probably would have levelled half the street!
Make me seem like a mere amateur. I only took out my garage, the neighbours garage, and less than 5k damage to my house, and 20k damage to my neighbours. And of course wiped out the car of the nice couple who liked opposite.

And from a small camping gas bottle. Imagine a house full.  That would flatten half of Merseyside :D

TB....has your phone suddenly gone dead ;D ;D ;D
I have phones lines? Here? In Brackley?

You can't consider yourself a yocal here until you accept electricity hasn't been invented, and running water is a luxury.

Broke the infotainment system again.  Bugger.

Now be honest, did you punch the screen for showing you the DPF warning?  ;D

I understand the DPF warning comes about as a result of durdling about, get yer foot down man!
I can claim innocence by starting the DPF warning comes up on the other screen, not the touchscreen. Phew.

As it happens, both things happened at almost the same time, give or take an hour.

Is the code 19 still present?
On the earlier V6 if you read the codes with the ignition on but engine off then it will always report code 19. It should clear when the engine is running. Else the sensor is foobar or the connector still has an issue.
Cobblers ;)

A 19 is always a corrupted signal. And is 99.9% of the time the sensor, with that 0.1% being a faulty flywheel or ECU.

With engine not running, you get a 30 (No RPM signal) on a pre 2001 V6

Hmmm, never noticed it as a problem, and never had an issue putting wiring back in cable tray before.
