Holden Rodeo 2003: Oil and fuel use
It would be possible, but I wouldn’t recommend doing it, as there’s too much work required. I would recommend converting it to LPG, you’ll get the savings and it won’t cost you anything like as much. Use a good quality sequential LPG injection system, and check the general condition of the engine before making the conversion.Show more
Holden Rodeo 2003: How to reduce fuel consumption?
THE 3.5-litre V6 petrol engined RA Rodeo has a reputation for being thirsty. There is a factory-approved dual-fuel kit available, and this may be the best way to reduce your fuel bills. The jury is still out on the economy of the new Alloytec V6 Rodeo. When asked, Holden wouldn't say if the new engine was more economical than the old one.Show more
What's the best ute for 4WD and beach driving?
The trade holds the Hilux up as the best of those you've mentioned. The Toyota turbo diesel is easily the best, but the downside is that you'll have to pay up to $3000 more to get behind the wheel of a Hilux. The others are OK, and all rated equally, but there are plenty of reports from the trade about problems with the Nissan turbo diesel so I'd recommend caution. If you were to consider a Navara, make sure it has an extended warranty for peace of mind.Show more
Holden Rodeo 2003: Leaky turbo diesel
Holden's service people say the problem was fixed with the introduction of a new seal last year. Holden's response was: "Vehicles undergo a continuous cycle of product development." To this end, the O-ring on the Jackaroo Turbo Diesel model was revised, and last year a procedure was developed in order to allow fitting of such by Holden retailers, as required. "To our knowledge completion of this replacement has resolved any issue." If you have had the new seal fitted and are not satisfied it has fixed the problem I recommend you return to the dealer and register your complaint.Show more
