Holden Barina 2010 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Barina 2010 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does the engine light keep coming on in my 2010 Holden Barina?

    A build up of carbon deposits (a by-product of burning petrol) is, indeed, a known fault with this engine. If it occurs, it can create the precise symptom you’re seeing (the check-engine light) but can also lead to an erratic idle and misfiring. There have also been cases where this engine has developed wear in the exhaust valve and valve-seat region, with similar end results. Unfortunately, the only fix is to remove the cylinder head and replace both the exhaust valves and their seats.

    I agree that 52,000km is a depressingly low mileage for problems like these to occur, so you need to make absolutely sure it really is the cause before you start to tear into the engine. A leak-down and compression test may throw some light on things, as can an electronic scan of the car. A fault-code of P0300 is a big clue that the exhaust valves are at the centre of the problem. This model Barina was another Holden that was simply a re-badged South Korean-built Daewoo with all that implies.

  • Why is the steering on my 2010 Holden Barina unstable?

    A car that feels unstable even in a straight line is a potential death trap. The higher speeds on the open road (as opposed to driving around the suburbs) are obviously amplifying the problem, but whatever it is needs to be fixed fast. To be honest, I wouldn’t be driving it at all.

    You could be looking at a problem with either the steering system itself, worn suspension or even a loose (or rusted) front cross-member that is allowing things to move in directions they shouldn’t. Don’t rule out poor wheel alignment or even incorrect tyre pressures, either. Has the car been crashed and repaired? Poor crash repairs can leave a car misaligned, making it steer and handle oddly. Either way, get it checked and fixed pronto.

  • What is the correct tyre pressure for the Holden Barina 2010?

    The tyre pressure will be shown on a sticker usually located in the driver’s door opening. The oil level is checked by a dipstick, which you will find on the motor. It will have a yellow handle. The coolant level can be checked by looking at the overflow bottle adjacent to the radiator. For the brake fluid level just remove the brake master cylinder cap.

  • Holden Barina 2010: Rattling noise in the gearbox

    It could be a number of things, bearings being one, but I would suggest you have a mechanic drive it to tell you with more certainty. I doubt you would need a new gearbox.
