Question about Cars & Trucks
To change the coolant in any engine you need to firstly remove the bottom radiator hose when the engine is cold not when the engine is hot and drain the whole system.
You then need to get some coolant from your local supplier and it will tell you on the container the proper ratio of water to cool it. Once you have put to cool it in top up the system with clean water.Regards

Taking out the tail shaft from the rear diff but before pulling out of the gearbox Drain the oil from the box,take out the shaft,Take off the battery earth lead,and now the starter motor.and the bottom metal plate at the bottom of the bellhousing (should be 4 small screws. and undo the 4 bolts on the flywheel metal plate which hold the torque converter on to engine. undo the bellhousing bolts and the top hose on the radiator ,and the gearbox X member and let down g/box slowley and slide it off WITH converter on the box ,
When refitting the other box its all in the reverse of removal (ALL OF IT) as well as the converter on the gearbox before it goes in as it fits on the shaft and turn it around and keep going untill it slips into the 2nd lot of splines and in line with the bell housing face.(Do not damage the g/box seal).
Let me know how you get on , Aussie Ron

Hi there i probably wouldnt use thread tape as those lines you have described are the transmission cooler lines and you dont want theread tape in your trans. remove the radiator make sure the fitting are dry and clean and use sikaflex around fittings and let it dry for 24 hours. this should fix yuor problem. I cant beleive they dont list holden. regards Ben

not necessarily, its actually a good idea to replace rotors or at least get them serviced due to the fact that they arent built to last forever. if the car is a 97 it probably just had rusted or even bent rotors. if at all possible see if you can get a mechanic to check out the surrounding parts to see if there is any unusual wear done to them.

is it an auto or manual? if its auto the selector band may be too loose or gone completely, check fluid levels and make sure they are good as that can cause it to play up, a service may help free it of clogged and cluttered debree.
