Why does the engine light keep coming on in my 2008 Holden Colorado?

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Jun 2021

If replacing the actual sensor doesn’t fix the problem, then you could be looking at a problem with the wiring that connects that oxygen sensor to the car’s on-board computer. Did the mechanic that changed the sensor check the condition of the wiring? This equipment all lives very close to a very hot exhaust system, so damage from that is not unknown.

There’s also a chance that the computer itself is throwing up a bogus fault code when it’s interrogated. Temporarily swapping the computer for another one is a reasonably simple way to rule this out. There’s also a chance (and it’s more common than you might imagine) that the brand new oxygen sensor you had fitted was a dud straight out of the box. This has definitely been known to happen, and it’s the first thing some experienced mechanics will think to check.

 It could be that they’ve replaced their pumps and the flow was too high for your car. Try tempering the flow next time you fill at that servo, and to be sure fill at another servo to see if it does it at other stations or it’s just related to the newly renovated one.

Holden Colorado: Why are my wipers noisy?

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Apr 2019

It’s not likely to be the linkages. The blades are the usual cause of such a noise, and it’s mostly because they don’t flip over when the wipers change direction at the end of each sweep. Try something like Rainex on your screen; that usually does the trick.
