The plug wells on mine were full of oil on the offside and the nearside had some water too. due to the fact the plugs hadn't been touched for quite a while before I bought it if I had not bothered to check when I did I doubt that one of the plugs would have been able to be removed before much longer due to the rotten state of it.

I don't suppose anyone has a glovebox handle in beige or whatever the colour it might be for my car as it finally gave up yesterday and now I cant even close the thing up at all.

Changed the oil and filter and smashed my thumb on the idler. and then opened the glovebox and had the handle fall off completely and now I cant even close the thing..

Hopefully stopped the coolant leak and topped up with antifreeze. and despite my testing the alarm horn out of the car and finding it working it never did work again when I put it back on the car. so in went another horn I've had for years and when I deliberately set the alarm off it tooted like it should so im happy. just the oil/air/fuel filters to sort now with a couple of other items and it should keep going for a bit longer with any luck..

In my worn out state I never noticed that one of the o rings that seals the plenum to the intake had fallen out hence the leak. but luckily it was still sitting on the airbox waiting for me to pop it back in. and I also cleared the fault code again.

The power sounder on my car had been removed before I bought it. but the horn that sits next to it used to work when you opened the door with the key after you had locked it with the remote but now only the hazards flash?.

Omega General Help / Idling problem.
« on: 03 April 2019, 22:25:52 »
Hello all,  Well after having done the cam cover seals and plugs the other day the engine has started to idle slightly faster than it normally does. and also when revved up has a tendency to stick at 2000-3000 rpm until I really rev it when it will eventually settle down to the slightly fast idle. im sure I put it all together properly and have gone around checking all the pipes and making sure everything is tightened correctly but it still continues to do the same thing. and today I have had the engine light illuminate and when I checked for codes I got the P0173 came up on the reader and which I deleted but which will probably come back again. can anyone shed some light on what the problem or problems might be..

Changed the cam cover seals and spark plugs and what a messy pig of a job that was. and with any luck it might not leak..

Its a pity they never printed an updated one for the facelift cars etc. I realise there's not a lot of difference with the later cars but it would have been handy to have..

Does anyone have or know where I can get these asap because I don't want the engine cooking itself if all the coolant escapes..

It's the top one at the moment. but I thought it would be good to replace both at the same time as they are in an awkward place and I don't want to cook the engine if I lose too much coolant.

I suppose i'm asking for the impossible here, but does anyone have some new heater hoses that I could buy for my car because now that I have replaced the radiator the heater hoses have decided to let out my coolant everywhere. and I know i'm pushing my luck filling it with plain water..
