"Check Coolant" Sensor gone - new tank?
« on: 03 June 2008, 14:42:26 »

Hi again all - am I right in thinking that if your sensor has gone (and cleaning doesn't work) it's new expansion-tank time please?

If so, are all petrol Omega expansion tanks the same please? Mine is a 3.0 MV6 2000 if this makes a difference.

Have shorted the sensor out and the error went away, there is plenty of lovely fresh coolant in there, bang on the mark.

Thank you
Alex

Yes. ;) Pretty sure they're all the same, just that some don't have the level sensor, just ask at the Vauxhall parts desk.  :y

Thanks for your answers guys - so quick too!

How much wonga would you reckon on parting with to get a new one please? If it's expensive I'll try my hand at a good second-hand one and clean it up :)

Well try a de-scaler in the header tank you have to.

30ish quid rings a bell for a new one

Lisles of Knebworth (now Marshalls) quoted me 42 three years ago when I first got my Omega; I settled for shorting the circuit and relying upon a regular visual check - the checks need to be done anyway, even with a working sensor.

Late now, I know, but worth popping the reed switch out and touching up the joints - found a couple of dry ones lately.
