I have just had my head sorted by headway on a K 16v Calibra. Everything appeared to be ok until realised the sump was cracked so gotta get a new one. Any ideas where from cause £180 from Vauxhall. On the way home I also notiched that my oil pressure (I think) guage keeps coming on and going off again. What are the main problems that this could be. Cheers
i cracked mine in multiple places after a slight misfourtune with my sump gasket replacement. I had mine welded up at a local engineers for 20 quid, reeeesult. They have to be able to alloy weld, which is more specialised than just steel or whatever.
Funny you should say that mate but I've got someone having a go at that today. Its snapped off round one of the bolts and cracked at another. (Due to me being a total div!!!) so dunno whether they'll be able to do it but worth a try
i had hairline cracks around 4 of mine, and one major crack. they welded the lot. I was under the car fitting a new starter motor last week, noticed that some of them are hairline again, not enough to be leaking drastically, so its gonna stay like it.
hmm, interesting question....I dont exactly know its age. Basically I brought the whole engine from a breaker, and put a low line rear wheel drive sump on it.
All I know is....its alloy, from a XE with a dizzy Astra me thinks, I can take some digi photos tonight and mail them to you if you want. I'm about to go home now so you can give me a ring tonight when I've got the sump in front of me, or text me if you want pics on 07941035734
