Holden Colorado 2013 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Colorado 2013 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Can I increase the brightness of the dash lights in my 2013 Holden Colorado?

    On the lower-right corner of the dashboard, you’ll find the rotary switch that controls the headlights. On the same switch panel (just to the left of the main headlight switch) are a pair of sliding controls that control the headlight aiming (the right-hand slide) and the dashboard-light brightness (just to its left).

    When the car’s headlights are turned on, the dashboard lights are automatically dimmed, and sometimes this provides insufficient light to see the gauges clearly in bright daylight. But by holding the adjustment slide in the up position, you can turn the dashboard lights to their brightest level of illumination.

  • Holden Colorado 2013: What are the known issues for this model?

    As with any four-wheel-drive that is approaching middle-age, you need to treat every Colorado on its individual merits. How has it been driven? Has it been used as a work truck? Has it spent every weekend off-road?

    Beyond that, the Colorado is subject to the same concerns that challenge all owners of modern, common-rail diesel engines. Those start with the soot filter which can clog up and require manual cleaning. The solution is to make sure you do at least one decent freeway journey every three or four weeks as a means of allowing the filter to regenerate as it’s supposed to.

    The other thing that catches many owners out is a build up of black gunge in the engine’s inlet tract. The black ooze is a combination of oil mist from the crankcase ventilation system and soot from the exhaust (a modern engine consumes a proportion of its own exhaust gasses as an emissions-reduction measure). When these two compounds mix, the black, sticky murk is the result. If it’s bad enough it can trigger a check-engine light on the dash and can lead to poor running and fuel economy. Left long enough, the whole intake system will need to be removed and manually cleaned. An aftermarket oil separator stops this is it traps the oil mist before it can enter the engine and is a good addition to these vehicles.

  • Holden Colorado 2013: Why is my engine failure light on?

    I doubt that it is a low oil pressure problem; it’s more likely to be an electronic issue with the car’s computer or a sensor associated with the ECM.

  • Holden Colorado 2013: Known issues

    You’ve had a pretty good run so far, and 133,000 km is not a lot, so I would stick with it for a while yet. But it’s a fact of motoring life that cars are likely to suffer an increasing number of problems as they get older and the kilometres are racked up. Judging the right time to get out of a car is not easy, it might be a good idea to have a mechanic give it the once over and give you an idea of how it’s going.
