Holden Commodore 1997 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore 1997 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Commodore not starting

    It's the old story; it's either a problem on the fuel side or one of the spark side. My inclination is to check the fuel pump, Commodores had problems with the in-tank pump, and I'm thinking it's not supplying the fuel.

  • Commodore loses power

    Intermittent problems are always difficult to find if they don't occur when the mechanic is there to witness it, but I would be looking at an engine sensor, crank angle or O2, as the most likely cause.

  • Holden Commodore 1997: Overheating

    It's odd that these problems should start after you had the new radiator fitted. I would suspect that whoever did the work did it poorly. Take it to an air-conditioning specialist.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra Commodore conversion to LPG

    Many thousands of V6 Commodores have been successfully converted and there’s no reason to be afraid of converting your car. It would be fitted with an old style of system rather a new injection type, but there’s nothing wrong with that. A word of caution, however, is that you should make sure your engine is good and healthy before you convert it. It’s an old engine and I’m guessing it’s done lots of kays, so it’s worth having it thoroughly checked for tune and compression before you commit to the conversion.
