Holden Commodore 2001 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore 2001 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What type of differential is fitted to the 2001 Holden Commodore?
The standard differential on this vehicle was a non-LSD (non-limited-slip) unit with a final-drive ratio of 3.08:1. Some owners changed the gears in the diff for more acceleration, although this was more commonly done in V8 models where owners were chasing performance at the expense of a little fuel economy.
If you’re in doubt, you can put the car on a hoist, mark a spot on the driveshaft and then turn the rear wheel a full revolution. By counting the number of times the driveshaft rotates during that process, you’ll know the ratio. In this case, one full rotation of the rear wheel should equal 3.08 rotations of the driveshaft.
The transmission in my Berlina has collapsed
Yes, it can be rebuilt or replaced and an automatic transmission specialist would be able to do that for you. Cost for the job would be around $2000 to rebuild or replace the transmission on a changeover basis.
Holden Commodore 2001: Brake master cylinder problem
It sounds like it could be a problem with the brake master cylinder. Take it to a brake specialist who should be able to sort it out for you.
Holden Acclaim coolant leak
I wouldn't rush into doing anything, there doesn't appear to be much, if anything wrong with your car. It's not using oil or overheating, so leave it alone until there is a clearer sign that something is wrong. If you are concerned have another mechanic, one that you trust to tell you the truth, check it, as your current mechanic would seem to be trying to get you to spend money you might not need to spend.
Holden Commodore 2001 Towing capacity
The Holden Commodore’s towing capacity ranges from 1600kg to 2100kg. Some models also offer heavy-duty or towing option packs which can increase towing capacity, as well as options which can hamper towing capacity. Towing capacities can vary wildly on a large number of factors. These include engine, transmission, model, and options chosen. Always check with the manufacturer or in your vehicles handbook before attempting to tow anything.
