Omega General Help / Overheating almost
« on: 05 July 2022, 17:56:33 »
Word men. Hope u r all good.

2.5 v6. Owned this car for many years now. Know it like the back of my hand. When on motorway it sits exactly at 90 degrees. Maybe touch under.

Round town and traffic etc. it creeps up to 95. Fans kick in. Down to 85. It then creeps up to 95. Fans cut in. And repeat.

Now a few times around town itís creeping up to 105. Fans cut in and it doesnít go in the red.

Obviously the fans work. However am i right that there are two can switches.. one for standard fan speed and one for omg about to explode speed. Iím guessing the standard speed one is playing up.

So 2 questionsÖ 1.) which is the fan switch that I need to replace and 2.) is there any other possibilities?

No coolant loss or anything odd other than this 👍

Omega General Help / Track rods

Omega General Help / V6 head removal
« on: 22 April 2022, 21:08:33 »
Hi guys hope ur all good

I have manifold gasket or cracked manifold causing slight fumes in to the car. I have one or more dead lifters. I have leaking cam covers. A duff thermostat. And slight coolant leak from the cooler plate.
My wheel arches are just starting to turn again. The front bumper has a recent scuff. I need at least two tires and two track rod ends.

And this is a car that Iíve always looked after. Talk about all things coming at once 🤣🤣🤣

Anyway I want to take me old man to the vaux fest again this year and I donít want to take my shed the way it is. All these things have honestly had me looking at new cars.

However the reality is I canít see anything that Iíd like as much and itís fairly cheap to maintain.

Anyway Iíve decided to stick with the devil I know and Iím gonna take it off road for couple of weeks and take the heads off and get all these things done with the plan to get me and the old boy to the vaux fest.

Iíve done this job before so I know what to expect. Couple of quick questions on things Iíve forgotten aboutÖ that metal coolant pipe that runs parallel with drivers exh. manifoldÖ. is it 1 bolt holding it to head or block and is it accessible?
Last questionÖ can u remind me where u put that green snot? If memory serves itís just under the front cam caps but honestly canít remember 🤣

Cheers in advance boys 👍

« on: 05 March 2022, 15:17:42 »
Good afternoon men. Hope everyone is all good.

As above I serviced the omega today and found a bit of play in the ball joints of the central track rod. Has anyone got a link for someone in theUK that sells these?

Cheers guys 😃👍👍👍

Thanks guys 👌

Omega General Help / Steering idler
« on: 01 October 2021, 18:42:59 »
Goooood evening guys. Hope ur all well. I need a steering idler. My one has got some play (yet more things to do 😬😬😬)

Anyhow I ring up Bedfraud Battery and they have two different sizes  :-\ new to me. Iím sure there was only one option before 🤔

Anyhow theyíre both special order and I donít know which one is correct. So Iím going to order it online. Any links for recommendations? I put this one on not so long back and I think it was a lemforder. But as it wasnít that long ago Iíd rather try a different longer lasting oneÖ. Unless theyíre all short lifetimes 🤦‍♂️😂😂😂

Omega General Help / Cambelt kit query
« on: 02 August 2021, 18:23:30 »
Gooood evening men. I hope u r all well:-)

So manifold gasket last week. Cambelt n WP this week 🤦‍♂️

Anyways got my kit from Bedfraud Battery and was very pleased that they have supplied me with a Gates kit. Iím on a bit of a time deadline with the car and canít really afford to have it off the road due to kit being wrong for example. So. Can someone confirm the belt length I have is correctÖ

It says on the beltÖ

5453XS - 225 x 30mm

It certainly all looks good and unlike conti kits it looks like Iíve got the correct tensioner backing plate too. But if someone can confirm the belt length thatíd be sweeeeet 😃😎😎😎

Ps itís a 2.5 v6 👍👍👍

Omega General Help / N/S exhaust manifold gasket (2.5 V6)
« on: 19 July 2021, 21:58:10 »
Hi gays, I mean guys. hope ur all well and staying safe 😎😃

I have tonight finished removing the n/s exhaust manifold to replace the nackered gasket and finally get rid of the exhaust noise Iíve had for ages now.

Firstly what a knob of a job this was. Iím very much not looking forward to putting it all back together 🤮🤮🤮🤣🤣🤣

Anyway rang Vauxhall earlier and the gasket is no longer available, though I was able to order 2 x manifold to down pipe nuts lol

So can anyone help me out and sell me a gasket or can you give me a link to a good online equivalent? I understand the layered steel ones are the way to go. Iíd previously fitted a graphite one which didnít last. But hey ho we live n learn. Cheers oof brothers

Omega General Help / Is this ATF ok...
« on: 31 May 2021, 19:37:04 »
Hi guys. Checked my oil level in my omega (has the ar25 box) and itís low. So I thought Iíll do a change. I usually use the carlube dex3 but canít get hold of that in time. I can however get this...$ja=tsid:94971%7Ccid:865695751%7Cagid:43902126655%7Ctid:aud-1122146652209:pla-327721643933%7Ccrid:202397318376%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:10614961453609681672%7Cdvc:m%7Cadp:%7Cmt:%7Cloc:1006959&gclid=Cj0KCQjwktKFBhCkARIsAJeDT0hBNql-kcci1Ng5CJ6uL8KZ4C_Dtl2RcZ_GOfovnXprdmpT2t8nGzUaApbCEALw_wcB

Would this be good to use. It says suitable for dex2 and dex3 and is fully synthetic. Your thoughts...

Cheers boys 😘😘😘

Omega General Help / Cat back exhaust for 2.5
« on: 15 March 2021, 21:03:39 »
Goooood evening gents. Hope youíre all well. As above, there was a link knocking about for cat back systems on the inter web. Would someone mind posting the linky? I got a whacking great hole in centre box and back box is looking ropey as hell 🤣
TIA 👌😎

General Car Chat / MG TF exhaust back box...
« on: 29 September 2020, 20:36:37 »
Hi guys. Iíve never worked on one of these sheds before except for maybe a service. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
Got to replace rear back box on one tomorrow. Iíve had it in the air last week (but part wasnít immediately available so heís dropping off tomoz) and nuts securing back box to catalytic converter are not even nuts / studs anymore so theyíll be getting cut off. However Iím curious to know if rear bumpers gotta come off. Looks tight to me. Itís no issue either way but as say just curious to know if it will slide in or bumper off. 😃😃😃😃

So firstly thanks to his royal D.G.ness for all help with the instrument cluster issue. No issues so far touch wood after cleaning the corrosion off and refitting. As I say ďtouch woodĒ.

So how does my omega repay me for doing that, servicing it and polishing it..... thatís right I find some water intrusion at the bottom corner of the NSF windscreen. Itís in the corner (approx 100mm by 100mm corner and seems to have turned white. I went to the bp car wash and only noticed it after that. What are my chances that it was just the high pressure water, itíll dribble out by tomorrow morning and I can put a nice smear of silicone poo at that corner? Or what are the chances Iíll have to get the screen resealed?

Anyone any experience with this Iíd be much appreciative.
