don't have front fans, dear  ;D havent in a long time, they went the way of the air con condenser  :) ie: in a hedge not far from Lincoln about 9 years ago.

Cheers mate

was making a bit of a whiney noise a week or two ago
manually spins, fine
fuses checked (visually) though apparently on the list there is no cooling fan fuse for a 1996 car(!) older, yes, newer, yes.  :o bizzarre!
Tried to deciper the fan test, don't understand electronic speak! Doesnt make any sense  :D. I'm going to try and run two wires from the battery to the fan itself, just to physically check it is the fan for definite.

Well, nearly home and the old girl overheats close to 100oC after careful driving and parking up, I discover that the main fan ain't on, as it normally would be after shutting engine down - which seems pretty conclusive.

Coolant temp sensor new, some pipes changed, not lost any coolant, radiator less than a year old, HBV genuine and low mileage, all the usual suspects are 'fine', it has to be the fan, surely.

So, given Miss DBG isn't very keen on driving the car without a fan - has anyone got one? Obviously a couple of days time I can have from from ebay/similar, but we're ideally wanting something even quicker!

Can OOF help??  :'(

Cracking job so far mate. I've been there so know how long it takes  :)

I also have no driveway, or garage, nice to see a few of us on here dont either. I did my old 'Turbo Weasel' FL scabby sticky door trims in a 'piano black' which at the time the Astra VXR was pretty new out, and featured that look. Looked pretty good, and wore very well, i'd recommend to anyone with FL  :)

PS Dynax Underseal meant to be the best on the market, should you wish to put an extra layer of protection on the inner wings.

hmmm... what I was suspecting, then.. perfect example being the 'aforementioned' HTs, same thing, really.  :y

I might just go for this other 02 sensor, if noone can see any instance where it's going to be wrong. (looking at pics, cable length looks identical/near enough to Omega version)

So digging around various parts sites I notice your PFL V6 o2 sensor p/n is 90509169, which corresponds to Bosch p/n 0258003447

However, theres also listed an o2 sensor which fits Vectra, Sintra and Calibra 2.5 V6s (Bosch p/n 0258003765, Vx p/n 855338 , 90541930 , 90570582)....anyone have any good reason why they shouldn't be interchangeable? I mean they're literally the same engine. All 3 wire, same multiplug by the looks of it.

EPC doesn't seem to have any cross-pollination, but my usual example is HT leads - Vectra B ones are a totally different p/n but they do fit, even though 'computer says no.'  :-\

Anyone got any thoughts?!  :y

I'm keeping my eye out mate, as I run on FL springs on my motor, so always on the lookout for 'spares' Nothing as yet, but I'm looking, would gladly give you first refusal.  :y

Ahh, I tried, haha.

But glad they did go to decent home.  ;)

doesnt that chappy with the PFL being broken on ebay have a set of springs for sale? Satin red, as I recall (and is/was a member on here) gtstylebaby wasnt it?

Probably old news and long since sold, but just in case....  :-\

Many thanks mate

Just deciding whether I go used, or new route. New of course means remove my original sensor and refit. Will be in touch  :y

B n Q first employer in the UK to actively employ people over the 'usual employment age' ie: they have zero age discrimination policy.

Genuinely all the best in the near future, and I hope things do come good soon. At the end of every run of bad luck, there's some good luck.

i have a bag full of used (but  ok) HTs from V6s. I've kept them as spares, just in case I lose/damage one for any silly reason.

Want me to see what's in there? (Will mean a message to where they're stored ie: my old bedroom at my parents haha)

So, before i go ripping my knackered old cats off and replace them, i would like a spare 'just in case' I manage to snap/destroy the original sensor, or indeed I cant get the bleeder out!

I know they aren't the earth for brand new ones... at the same time if my original is working fine I see no need to throw it in the bin for the sake of it, nor waste money on a branny which will then lay 'on the shelf' forever and a day  :y

Hoping a known good 'uns kicking about somewhere. Thanks in advance.  :y
