Omega General Help / 2.0 Engine dying - best remedy?
« on: 04 February 2010, 18:13:20 »
I have started having a bottom end rattle when starting from cold. Once the oil light goes out the engine sounds sweet.

I have recently had the head gasket repaired, tyres and tracking sorted, new clutch new exhaust including the Cat, have both front legs to replace (courtesy of Daz), overall the car is in fair condition for its age. its a '96 N reg.

My problem is what to do with it.....

I asked Daz about rebuilding it, but he thinks it's good money after bad, and a big job to do.....

I could replace the engine, if I could get a good one....

I say sod it and get rid of it and get a replacement.....

Firstly, has anyone got a GOOD 2.0 engine in their back pocket, maybe even the whole car at a push......

Is there anyone who is interested in rebuildng the engine.... Must be capable of having the car and remove and refit the engine and reliably rebuild the bottom end.... depending on the cost!

The other option is another car.... It would have to be reliable, and preferably had the Cam belt changed but this would not be an issue if it was a 2.0, not bothered what it is, drive, age and body is not an issue, but would prefer a 2.5 if changing car....

I am open to suggestions, I've got about 400 to spend, either on the engine, a replacement engine or another car.

Omega General Help / Play in steering
« on: 02 December 2008, 23:12:15 »
Just a quickie...... 'N' reg 2.0 Omega saloon.
When my steering wheel is straight and the engine off, there is no play.
If my steering is at an angle, and the engine off, there is a fair bit of free play in the steering wheel.
I have checked all the track rods, no play.
I have checked the bearings, all ok.
I have been underneath while the wife shakes the steering wheel but can't see where the play is.
The car passed its MOT with no advisory, so my question is where to look for the play.
All suggestions gratefully received.
