The HBV leak may be slowdd by adjusting the cabin temperature settings to the opposite of what they are now, which I appreciate won't be great given your location.

That part is typically €20 and can be considered a service item.

Oil cooler failure is unfortunately going to involve a creative solution as they are less common than a zero alcohol Finnish vodka in a bar.
Allready swapped the HBV (which was leaky), identified the leak from the back of the block with my finger. Thought I felt it from the centre, not above where the oil cooler is, i.e. no hose leakage as I would persume.
Silly question, regarding it's an oil cooler, but would it contaminate the water? No water in oil.

Maybe an idea pressure-testing and having an inspection camera at the back would be an idea to visibily see the leak...

Any ideas or thread of these creative solutions regarding the oil cooler? Haynes only recommend putting (vauxhall) "sealant 15 03 296" in the groove and new sealing washer on the pipe union.

And a failing fuel pump will start the car but may not hold any throttle for long... Idle would be fine.

A failed pump simply won't start the car.

Then there's the obvious question of fuel quantity...

If there's less than a quarter on the gauge and the car isn't precisely level, assume it has run out and put at least 10 litres into it.

“To discourage urination in the streets”

I remember when towns provided public toilets free to use , not pay to use gimmicky space capsules with the frisson of the door might open if you took too long. Where did it go wrong.
I believe those originated in gay Paris. And were a naked improvement over the draughty pissoirs, aka holes in the ground.

Car is running great, revving as it should. No other symtoms of it being HG other than, yeah ... oily water (and some silly smoke, but not excessive), oh and also the ridiculous leak, empties itself when driving normally. Not while idle though. No water in oil so what ever.

found the oily water just now, after doing some not-so-kosher intervention to the coolant water.

Why im asking here. Hate even to think pulling the plenum apart. It's not that bad, is it?

Could well be the OIL cooler failed
the coolant leak at the rear of engine could be HBV (heater bypass valve) very common fail  ;)

Welcome to the Forum  :)
Hio Dave!

Fingers crossed. Guess it doesn't add up not checking. But im stomped, Dead end big sad right now, cant even eat lol.

Yeah, the HBV ... strange thing, why doesnt 20xev have it? Must be something about higher pressure in the v6.
Anyway, yeah it was leaking. Swapped it recently, not the hoses though. But it was spraying a mist of coolant when it became active. Never seen anything like it.

Hio, first post hope not last.

So I've had this omega for 2 months now, stomped to discover oil in water, dreaded.

Also have niagria-fall waterleak in the rear side of the engine (opting it's the oil cooler though, havn't looked too deep into it) since bought.

What else can it be. . And how hard is it to break the engine in two and change HG? Never done no more advanced than timing belts ... im big blue right now.

if were talking omega then the pump filter rubber bobbin is the usual culprit but you said rear too ?
different car (or estate !)

I think the washer bottle pump on the Signum serves both front and back  screens.
Does on my humble Vectra, so you are probably right.

There is absolutely no relationship between the humble common as muck Vectra, and the majestic, rare, and highly desirable Signum, Ronny. ::) ::) :)

Oh dear, the delusional upper classes.  :P  ;D
Signum review (Retired Police Interceptor) clicky   ;D
