Holden Captiva 2014 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Captiva 2014 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why is my diesel 2014 Holden Captiva blowing black smoke?
Excess black smoke from a diesel engine is bad news as it can – among other things – cause the engine to run hot enough to cause internal damage. As for a cause, it could be anything from contaminated fuel to a block air-filter, a faulty sensor or a damaged intake system. Modern diesel engines like this one also have a habit of forming black deposits in their intake tract (a by-product of the engine’s own emission controls) and this can cause all sorts of problems including black smoke.
Another possibility is that the car’s diesel particulate filter (DPF) is blocked and the car is trying to regenerate it (clean it out) by dumping lots of fuel into the engine, and that’s causing the excess smoke. Either way, it needs to be fixed to avoid the potential for costly engine damage, not to mention the environmental havoc the car is causing in its current state. An electronic scan of the onboard computer would be a good starting point.Show more
Holden Captiva 2014: Smoke coming from engine
It’s hard to diagnose from a distance. As the engine appears to be running ok, the noise and black smoke might well be a particulate filter burn-off event, but you wouldn’t normally expect to see smoke or hear what sounds like an explosion. The dealer can check the filter and the burn-off history, so they should be able to see if there has been an event. I would think the transmission problem is a separate issue, and the transmission might need servicing.Show more
Holden Captiva 2014: Oil leak
There's no reason why Holden should replace your car because of an oil leak. The company has an obligation to fix the leak under warranty, so it should not cost you a penny. To write it off as a lemon at this stage doesn't make any sense. I wouldn't bother approaching Holden for a replacement.Show more
What mid-sized SUV should I buy?
Moving out of a Statesman you will probably want some luxury, so that's definitely not a Captiva. I'd suggest you test drive a CX-5 and a Subaru Forester, both of which get The Tick, and choose between them.Show more
