  • ABOUT: VL Commodore... good looking car.
1 First generation (1978–1988)
  • 1.1 VB
  • 1.2 VC
  • 1.3 VH
  • 1.4 VK
  • 1.5 VL
2 Second generation (1988–1997)
  • 2.1 VN
  • 2.2 VP
  • 2.3 VR
  • 2.4 VS
3 Third generation (1997–2006)
  • 3.1 VT
  • 3.2 VX
  • 3.3 VY
  • 3.4 VZ
4 Fourth generation (2006–present)
  • 4.1 VE

In my opinion your car is around 1978 make.

A Brief Introduction of VL Commodore:
Marking a high point in terms of sales, the last-of-the-series VL Commodore sold in record numbers, finally managing to outsell the Ford Falcon in the private sector.The 1986 VL represented a substantial makeover of the VK and would be the last of the mid-size Commodores. Designers distanced the Commodore further away from its Opel origins, by smoothing the lines of the outer body and incorporating a subtle tail spoiler. A thorough redesign of the nose saw the Commodore gain sleek, narrow headlamps and a shallower grille, while the Calais specification employed unique partially concealed headlamps.

By this stage, Holden’s 30 year old six-cylinder was thoroughly outmoded and would have been difficult to re-engineer to comply with pending emission standards and the introduction of unleaded fuel. This led Holden to sign a deal with Nissan to import their RB30E engine. This seemed a good idea in 1983 when the Australian dollar was strong; however by 1986 the once viable prospect became rather expensive. The public quickly accepted what was at first a controversial move, as reports emerged of the improvements in refinement, 33 percent gain in power and 15 percent better economy. An optional turbocharger appeared six months later and lifted power output to 150 kilowatts (200 hp). In October 1986, an unleaded edition of Holden’s carburettored V8 engine was publicised. Holden had originally planned to discontinue the V8 to spare the engineering expense of converting to unleaded. However, public outcry persuaded them to relent. VLs in New Zealand were also available with the 2.0 litre six-cylinder RB20E engine.
Negative points:

The VL suffered from some common build quality problems, such as poor windshield sealing, that can lead to water leakages and corrosion. Awkward packaging under the low bonnet meant the six-cylinder engine was especially susceptible to cracked cylinder heads, a problem not displayed on the Nissan Skyline with which it shares the RB30 engine. The Used Car Safety Ratings, published in 2007 by the Monash University Accident Research Centre, found that first generation Commodores (VB–VL) provide a "worse than average" level of occupant safety protection in the event of an accident.

I think it is sufficient information, as per your question.

Let me know if you wish to know more about your Car. (:P)

Best of Luck & Regards

My batter want stay chareg an i got a new alternater

batterys generaly consist of 4 cells if one cell goes bad usually the battery will function but not at top preformance some batterys are sealed by the manufacture so you cant service them others have a plastic removable square plug which plugs two of the 4 cells very carefully remove one of the plastic covers from the battery remember sulferic acid burns a lot.... if one of the cells in the battery is dry add water or if you are a mechanic you can purchase acid in a plastic container at any auto parts suppier if the battery doesnt put out at least twelve volts i recomend replacing it servicing batterys should be handled with extreme care any they range from 40 to 140 dollars buying a new one may be the safest ansewer

Radio dont work

hi.there...i hope it's not too late to give you solution about your problem....
after i reading your problem i think the main problem is at your battery car condition...did you know every battery car have a life time even if you use a dry cell battery... if you already try to recharge it twice but it's only work only for two or three days..that's mean you must replace the battery with the new one.. just make sure when your repalce with new battery it must same type with the factory recomenned (ex: NS 70 ZL or else ).
after your replace with new battery car with new one you can add car stereo tape that what you want but still you must be carefully with cable installation.just give it to the expert one.
the life time for the car battery is usually (if you use standart application) is about 1- 2 years. more longer if you use dry cell battery the life time is around 3 yaers but the price is more expensive for the dry cell battery....

96 ford mustang gt charging problem

ignition coil not powering right

also some useful info
batterys are refurbed these days and sometimes an unlucky person can still get a dead cell battery several times even if the you bought brand new
i took mine back 4 times before i found a good one that kept its charge
dead cells dont show them selves very well on battery tests even though dead cell the tester would show good show dont think that there is something definatley wrong you could be in same ditch i was before with my batterys
alternator testers at some shops are not reliable enough i recommend a voltage tester to battery
