check the oil level in the sump, coolant level, coolant temperature (overheating), transmission oil level if auto. The limp mode is energised by any number of sensors that register a fault that is detrimental to the engine/ gear box. Run the fault codes and repair any faulty units . Reset the CPU with a scanner .
It could be one of a number of things. the valve stem seals maybe worn if the car has done a few km's. worn piston rings casing oil to get into the cylinders and burn with the fuel also caed by high kms'.Does the water in the radiator seem to have an oiley feel if so you may have a blown head gasket it may pressurize the radiator but tthere may also show with the color of the oil in the sump..
Holden Rodeo 1989 2.6mpi , start and only runs for 2 or so seconds themselves stalls, after putting on a fuel peesure gauge, fuel looked okay and slowly dropping, found the ECM relay was intermittently switching on and off, gave it a tap and the engine kept on running, relay not repairable, replace with new part. Located in the fuse and relay box on the right hand side of engine bay next to battery. Hope this helps.
Taking the oil from bottom sump is correct n yes putting it back via the dip stick is correct too. But b4 u guage, start up the car, engage gear with leg on the brakes if stationary, try reverse too 4 a while, legs on brakes again if stationary bring to neutral, still on hand brake up. Then guage to d required dip stick mark. Note: b4 starting up n engaging gears be sure u ve put in some oil first n pls do not let it over guage, go past the mark on dip stick, if it does drain a bit at a time till u get it right.
The filter doesn't take any oil, but when they figure the quantity, they figure either filter change or rebuild, the filter change uses about 5 quarts and the rebuild is 12 quarts. I don't have the exact amounts in front of me, but if you need them,I can look them up. Also, I am not familiar with the Holden dual cab, But most automatics are about the same. Hope this helps.
