    Hello As Long as the omega is 2.6 or 3.2 can't see why not. 2.5 or 3.0 won't fit tho.

    ok, i see lol, ones square and ones round, i have had my 2.6 gsi estate in three garages last week, costing 750 quid, and back rockers still losing 3 litres oil in 100 miles, my plan is to ask vauxhall to fit a new plastic omega 2.6/3.2 onto my bus, im gonna have to scrap her if it doesnt work, i really love my vectra but i really need a newer car. shame. i even brought a new bosch maf, new plugs and ignition coil last week aswell ffs!

    2.6/3.2 use coilpacks (Square holes) 2.5/3.0 use ht leads (circle holes). have you tried replacing the rubber gasket on the rocker cover?

    Vauxhall rarely stock anything these days for the vectra or omega.

    yes its had 3 gaskets, my local vauxhall can get the gasket ordered in, im going to ask them to fit a new 2.6/3.2 plastic cover, and clean the breather system, and pipework, and replace with new if theres any doubt. will go ask in morning, and double check with the vaux spares website that it is in stock! Thanks for the help, i hope it gets repaired.

    Plastic cam cover didnt lign up with plenums etc, vauxhall put a straight edge on my metal cover, cleaned lots of oil from engine bay, and no leaks from either bank. i am so happy. mot in april! Its due a cambelt, they quoted 520.00

    Update, the car developed a misfire on cylinder 6, i could feel it lol, i ordered a new bosch ignition pack for cylinders 2 4 6, as it had new plugs 3 weeks ago, and sent the car into vauxhall, i feared the worst. maybe the rockers were leaking again?
    well they phoned and all fixed, no leaks, so happy its fixed as i am out of cash, and need it for work! do a good 400 miles a week getting to and from work, so its a relief tbh. Cheers. Adam.
