2.2 ignition control module (coil pack) boots
« on: 07 August 2018, 18:24:42 »

I recently had to replace the cam cover seals on my 2.2 16V as it was leaking. The plug wells were full of oil. I removed the plugs and they looked serviceable, so I put them back in. However 3 out of the 4 rubber boots for the plugs had a small split in the lower skirt. Perhaps 6mm to 8mm in length. The main body of the boots was OK, just the bit that's deepest in the wells are split.

The splits didn't look like they might spread upwards towards the plug caps. So do I need to replace these boots? And is there any urgency?
Are spare boots even available?

Thanks,

Might as well get done at that price...

Don't fit them until you have done the breathers and camcover gasket ;)

Also be a good idea to replace the thinner hose from the cam cover to throttle body as that's probably turning to cheese... It eventually develops the consistency of chewing gum.

somthing like these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-NEW-Ignition-coil-pack-Spark-Plug-Rubber-Boot-connectors-Springs-Repair-Kit-/302464175896
Yes, something like!

Do you know if the boots and the springs in the listing properly fit a 4 pot Omega? (Not sure that the resistive caps are required.) There's no mention of an Omega or even a Vauxhall/Opel with a similar size engine in the application list.

Buy that, fit the boots and worry about something far less trifling  ::)
