Holden Captiva 2007 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva 2007 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why do all the warning lights on my 2007 Holden Captiva turn on?
The Holden Captiva has a terrible reputation in this department, and plenty of owners have had ongoing problems with the electronics in these vehicles which weren’t actually Holdens at all, but rather rebadged Daewoos. It’s a bit of a surprise to learn that a scan of the vehicle doesn’t show up any fault codes, but that also makes us think that perhaps you have a major failure of the vehicle’s body computer which controls all the functions you’re now being warned about on the dashboard. And if the body computer itself is in the process of failing, then it may not respond to the scanning process in a logical manner.
That said, the problem could be caused by something as simple as a poor earth in the car’s electrical circuitry, but experience with the Captiva suggests it will be something more complex and probably more expensive. Don’t rule out a failed electrical connection somewhere in the car’s wiring loom. The catch with the Captiva is that the cost of repairs is often greater than the retained value of the car itself, at which point you’re at an ownership cross-roads. The reality is that your car is probably only worth about $8000 (perhaps less) and a lot less as a trade-in. Spending thousands of dollars to fix it doesn’t add up to too many people.Show more
Holden Captiva 2007: Why is the engine smoking?
As a rule of thumb, white smoke from a diesel engine suggests the fuel is not burning properly. If your engine only blew smoke when you first started it up each morning, I’d suggest the glow-plugs weren’t working properly and heating up the combustion chambers to gain a complete burn of the fuel.
But since it’s blowing smoke all the time, I think you could be looking at a fuel-injection problem. The injectors themselves could be bad (and it only takes one dud to make gales of smoke) or the system is mis-timed and not injecting the fuel precisely when it should be. These engines self-analyse themselves as you drive and it seems the car knows it has a problem, because it has turned on the check-engine light as a warning to you that something is amiss. Your first move should be to have the injectors checked as well as the injection timingShow more
