Swmbo came back with a 'Bug Zapper' from Aldi....cost about £7. Has a wire mesh each side and another in the middle. Shows a violet light when on. PP3 battery (9 volt). On the case it says, '2000 volts...this is not a toy'. I thought, what a load of crap. Sat looking at it and pondering, then I made my mistake. I pressed both the sides together. Geeeeeez….did I get a bolt, flippin' arm went numb. How the hell do you get that power from a nine volt battery !!!!!!!! :)

I bet you were the kid that had to put your fingers in a light socket to see what happens. ::) :o :-[ :D :D :D ;D

Other versions have one, sometimes 2 AA batteries, but with the same resultant high voltage.
It's worth remembering that they hold a charge after you have released the button, so still do not touch the mesh!

and adding the BMW tax. After all, you might be a typical BMW owner and nobody can afford to underprice those jobs....
I think most of the knobjockeys have moved over to Mercedes, if my experiences are anything to go by...

...more common than Fords, and universally driven by cockwombles.  At least Beemer drivers only used to not indicate, and sit on your arse with space only for a rizla.

Yes, at least most BMW drivers are youthful enough not to have completely lost their spacial awareness. :-X

Which is why they don't need indicators!  ;D

Its got a couple of gallons of diesel in there at the moment.  Typical. ;D
Im actually confident I would get at least what I paid for it even if the engine is fooked. It will cost  lot more than that to buy another half decent one though.

Its not as simple as the fuel shutoff solenoid on the pump?

Cracked the injector pipes open and fuel is getting up to the injectors.  :(
Gut feeling suspects are - air leaking into fuel supply, which is known to cause havoc. Knackered pump, which almost certainly means the end of the car. Head gasket, which will probably be the same result as knackered pump.  :-\
I will try to find out from tomorrow when I should have time to have a play.

For awareness, you can still get fuel.to the rail with a knackered solenoid (as I discovered recently on a 1.6D VW engine).

However, there is no pressure behind it so it does  not crack the injectors (Bosch pump).

It's worth applying 12V direct to the solenoid to see if you can hear or feel it go click  :y

Will need to check, but I don't think there is a solenoid or anything else electrical connected to the pump. I think its all mechanical.

We don't hate spreadsheets. But they're like using using a laser level, expensive adjustable cordless drill and complicated fastener for a job that a hammer, nail and weighted string will accomplish just as well.

You don't have enough posts to post in the for sale forum.


PM one of the moderators and ask them if they'll let you. What you have is a rare part, so they might be agreeable. Very limited market though.

Thanks for that got offered  £215 ,but  that's not the problem it's too good to scrap


That's your opinion. The tricky part is finding someone else who thinks the same and is prepared to pay what you think it's worth. There would have to be something very special for an Omega with good longterm prospects to fetch more than £1000.


Good luck.

Mercedes were an early adapter in the '91-'98 S Class with more and more complexity* in subsequent cars...

* this is actually an achievement as the W140 is stupidly over done :D

Jesting aside, is there a decent, straightforward book about CAN in order to get a better understanding of how it works?
