Holden Jackaroo Q&As

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

  • Why is my 2000 Holden Jackaroo's transmission overheating?

    I’d be taking the vehicle to a transmission specialist (as opposed to a general workshop). A good transmission expert will be able to tell you a lot about the condition of your gearbox by giving it a once over. That will include an examination of the level and condition of the fluid as well as an inspection of the contents of the transmission filter which can offer up an enormous amount of detail on what’s happening inside the gearbox.

    When was the last time the transmission was serviced? The fluid in these units is a bit like the oil in your engine; left unchanged for too long, it will degrade and won’t be able to do its job which, in the case of an automatic transmission, includes both lubricating the unit as well as providing the actual driving force to turn your car’s wheels. If your problem was intermittent or was solved (even temporarily) by switching the engine off and back on again, then I’d be inclined to suspect an electronic or sensor problem. But since the problem only happens when the transmission gets hot, it does sound potentially mechanical in nature.

  • Gears not working in 1992 Holden Jackaroo

    There are two possibilities here. Either the shifter mechanism has jammed or failed and will only allow you to select second or fourth or, the gearbox itself has failed internally, and the ensuing mechanical carnage has jammed it up. The wild-card is the clutch which could have failed. If that was the case, though, I’d imagine you wouldn’t be able to select any gears at all with the engine running.

    The first step would be to check from underneath whether the gear linkages and selectors have somehow got tangled up in each other – it can happen – but if that’s not the case, then I’m afraid it’s probably a gearbox-out job. Make sure you fit a new clutch when it all goes back together.

  • Holden Jackaroo 2000: What's causing the engine to rattle and blow smoke?

    It could be a problem with the diesel pump, it might be a problem with the turbocharger, or it could even be an internal problem with the engine itself. Get it to a diesel mechanic for a proper diagnosis.

  • Jackaroo gasket

    It could be a blown head gasket as your mechanic suggests, but he should be able to test it to determine if it is blown or not. You should also be able to see evidence in the form of a milky substance in the coolant if it is a blown head gasket.
