Hi, I have an omega that have had from new, it was first registered in 2002, it has a full service history and it has done 47,000 miles, I have been given another more up to date vehicle so my intention was to give away my Omega but the other day I noticed that the coolant warning light was on and was surprise as I had only a week before filled it up so I took it to the garage for them to check and they said that it was a little bit worse than that and that the cylinder head would have to come off at a cost of £500 They did say that it may be something that they can fix or it may be that I may need a new engine but until they strip it down they would not know, I don't want to scrap the car as it drives like new and bodywork is good, I just wondered if anyone here would like to take it as a project, the car is like part of the family and we would wish it to go on for another 17 years.

Sounds like they justvwant your money.. Could be any thing frim a leaky pipe or heater matrix or radiator etc.. Could be leaking from tbe water pump.. It might be letting coolent into the bores on acceleration due to a weak head gasket.. Get a compression test done first and adk for the readings as a print out and post them here please
