Tell me more about the steaming up, please - mine seems to have started doing that and I suspected that the drainage pipe was blocked - cleared it, but still steaming.



After doing a bit of browsing around the forum, getting to know possible future problems, I noticed several instances where resets were required on electrical items, for example:

Windows, one click closing: Close window and hold switch until you hear the relay click.

Sun roof positions resets: Push button on fully open, fully up, and I think, when shut

Aircon recirculation flap (this one totally solved my steaming up problem): Switch on and off. The ECU then knows where it is.

It would be interesting to know, what else to check after a battery disconnect / reconnect.

I'm looking in with interest because I've been told I need my wishbones done, but not sure that I have the skills, nor, at 70, the will and energy to do it.
An Omega is also hard on the pension!

What a brilliant site this is! My thanks to one and all; wish the weather were more clement so I could get to it......

Thanks, Robson., and all other answerers. Where can I buy a Wahler thermostat? I looked up Unipart, as suggested, and found them to be expensive.
I certainly do need a new one as my car takes ages to show any increase on the temperature gauge - not good with the weather we are now moving into!
It will also adversely affect fuel consumption with the engine taking so long to reach its efficient operating temperature and I can't afford the extra petrol!

Has anyone changed the thermostat on a 2.6 V6 and is it as horrendous as I fear?

This charger can be left connected forever, as it drops back to trickle charge when bulk charging is complete, but you MUST disconnect the battery fully as it is a pulse charger and the pulsing will affect the electronics in your Omega if the battery is left connected.

Somewhere lurking in the depths of my mind is the thought that before you can change to fully synthetic oil from mineral you need to do something - flush the engine out, maybe?
Does anyone know what I'm talking about, because I don't!

On an allied topic, Santa brought me a YouView box, which I am happy with but apparently I need an Internet connection to be able to watch past programmes. How do I go about this? I have a BT Voyager modem for my computer, but I need something posher, yes?
Also, as I am on a BT Basic tariff, will downloading previously broadcast programmes go way over my download allowance and cost me a pension-breaking amount of money?Thanks in advance for your help, folks, and a happy New Year to all.

I've just bought 5 litres of Triple QX ATF Dexron III 5 Litre (5L) Automatic Transmission Fluid from "carpartsaver" on Ebay, as compared to £10 per litre from my local High Street factor, which I reckoned wasn't bad.
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to mention any links to the Ebay posting on here, so I won't, for now.


Are you sure it was entirely his fault? Before anyone is allowed to purchase a Bum-Wee they have to undergo an intensive course at the Company-run PratSchool and unless they pass they are denied the purchase.
I like the cars, but could never own one for that reason, unless it were a prize in a competition, as my wife spotted in a magazine recently: that way, the competition organisers would be the "owners" and THEY would have to go on the PratCourse, so I wouldn't have to! :y

Thanks to you all. My money has to be on the one I overlooked, Fs27 - accessories.
The main and ignition-switched socket served by Fs14 also supplies a lot of other things that do work, so I'll go looking.
