Holden Barina 2001 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Barina 2001 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Does my 2001 Holden Barina need a new clutch?
By 'rides' I’ll assume you mean 'slips', which then slowly allows the car to build up to speed (as in, the rest of the car catches up with the engine). There are two major causes of this, the first is a clutch that is out of adjustment, and the second is a clutch that really needs replacement.
The problem you have, though, is that even if the clutch on the Barina is adjustable (and some clutches aren’t) the fact that you’ve been driving it with the clutch slipping suggests that you’ve already damaged the clutch to the point where it would need to be replaced anyway. Continuing to drive it can also put 'hot-spots' on the car’s flywheel (to which the clutch attaches) and that can mean the flywheel also needs to be resurfaced when you replace the clutch.
I reckon, at the minimum, you’re looking at a new clutch kit. Ignoring it will eventually wind up with the clutch expiring completely and you walking home.Show more
Ford Focus: Can it run on E10?
The Barina will run happily on E10 and I doubt the dealer's advice about the "emission light". Ford, on the other hand, recommends you use the higher octane rating premium fuel, hence the advice not to use E10. Your Focus will run on E10, probably without any trouble, but it will run better on premium unleaded.Show more
Holden Barina 2001: Slow to start in the morning?
HAVE you switched fuel recently? A change of fuel can have the effect you complain of. Of course, it's worth checking the basics to make sure the engine management system is doing what it's meant to be doing, particularly during the cold phase.Show more
Holden Barina 2001: Brakes need replacing at service?
WHY are you having your car serviced before you need to? Why 39,900km instead of 45,000km? Generally, modern cars consume pads and discs at a faster rate than older cars do, and European cars generally consume them at a faster rate than locally produced cars. It's largely to do with braking performance, as well as the switch away from pad materials containing asbestos, which are outlawed for health reasons. Ask to see the discs and have the dealer show you that they need to be replaced, including having him measure the discs in front of you. I would be sceptical about claims they're worn out at such low mileage.Show more
