Holden Commodore 1988 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Commodore 1988 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Vl keeping its cool

    YOUR Commodore has a six-cylinder engine bought from Nissan, basically the same that was fitted to the Nissan Skyline here. The engine is a fine unit, but there was an installation problem when it was fitted to the Commodore, and it can give trouble when air pockets develop in the cooling system, causing the engine to overheat. It's important to use the correct coolant if you have to top up the cooling system -- don't use water, and be careful to bleed the cooling system properly if you have to service it for any reason. The auto is generally reliable, but it is expensive if you have to rebuild it. One thing to check is the service history. Older drivers often consider servicing too expensive, especially if they do few kays. Find out if the car has been well serviced, and if it hasn't think about getting it serviced.

  • Wheeling and dealing

    SOME people think the VL was one of the best, if not the best early Commodore, because it had a Nissan engine. The Nissan six is a good, reliable engine and I'm sure you've felt its good performance. In the Nissan it was bullet-proof, but it had a few problems in the Commodore, caused by installation, not the engine. The Commodore's radiator was prone to breaking an internal baffle, affecting the flow of coolant, and mechanics often wouldn't bleed the cooling system properly after repairing the radiator. This led to overheating problems. If yours is in good condition, it's worth $2000-$3000, and would be popular with young drivers. It sounds as if the dealer doesn't want to take it off your hands. Do a deal where you keep the VL and sell it privately.
