Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Have just purchased a 2000 holden astra auto sedan 1.8L it has a small oil leak and my mum suspects either i need a new oil cap or something about the oil pressure that one day it may just explode? any thoughts on this and any ideas as to how much it may cost to repair if it is to do with pressure?

A small oil leak is not problem, one drop of oil can spread out to the size of Silver dollar. Oil leaks are very expensive to repair and hard to pin down without access to a car lift. Tell Mom not to worry her little head about this. Cheers mate.

SOURCE: low oil pressure light is on on 2000 lexus rx300

try replacing the oil preasure switch, if that doesnt solve your problem then have your oil preasure tested, if it really doesnt have oil preasure it will cause internal engine damage so start with the switch and then go from there, hope this is helpful.

I have a2001 holden astra 4 cylinder 1.8 litre can i remove the oil pan without taking the motor out


If had someone replace the seals you should take it back to them and let them fix it.
You can remove the oil pan without taking the motor out, but it's a LOT easier to work on if you do. You will probably take 3 times longer by trying to leave it in the car vs. taking the motor out.

My 2007 Holden Astra AH stutters while idling and when accellerating, why?


The engine is miss firing and changing the oil and oil filter will not rectify that problem because they are totally unrelated. There are numerous possible causes such as a vacuum leak in the engine intake system. If you wish you can remove the engine cover and check the condition of the rubber hoses leading to and from the intake system. The vehicle needs to be connected to an appropriate diagnostic scanner to see what fault codes are being thrown up so the specific cause can be identified.

Cruize control does not engage


Check the fuse box before you change anything, after that call a dealer or auto electrician/ knowledgeable neighbour.. Do you have a repair manual? Is there any reason the wiring harness has been hit, check the boot and bonnet connections, brake lights and reverse come through the side of the boot area. Has something pulled the harness?
