Holden Commodore 2002 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore 2002 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Holden Commodore 2002: Engine misfiring
A problem like this could be caused by any number of things, James. Electronically interrogating the on-board computer is a wise first step, as the error codes that will result will possibly lead you straight to the offending component.
In cars like yours with electronic fuel-injection and engine management, there’s an array of sensors that need to send the correct signal to the car’s on-bord brain for everything to function properly. Replacing these sensors one by one until you fix the problem is a very time and cash consuming way of proceeding. Have the car scanned instead and see what fault codes show up.
Meantime, if I had to venture a guess, I’s say the problem sounds ignition related. An engine will often idle properly with no load on it, but when you select a gear, there’s suddenly load applied and, if the ignition system is not spot on, the engine can suddenly do all sorts of crazy things, including dropping cylinders. The other thing that occurs to me is that your battery might be low on charge. Injected engines absolutely do not like a lack of volts.
Holden Commodore 2002: How can I fix a broken interior vent?
Something has possibly broken in the vent. Remove the vents from the dash and check, or have a mechanic do it for you if you’re not confident of doing it yourself.
Holden Commodore 2002: Why is it not starting properly?
It’s possibly a blown head gasket. Have a mechanic check it for you.
Holden Commodore 2002: Removing coolant reservoir
First, pull the radiator overflow hose out of the side of the coolant reservoir fill neck and turn the steering wheel to the hard left to get room to get tools in. Laying on the ground undo the two screws on the front of the reservoir and screw on the frame rail, and you can then remove the reservoir.
Holden Commodore 2002 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.
