What isthe differenc between seris 1 and series2 of the vt commodore

The main difference in the series is the dropping of the Australian-made V8 engine, which has been replaced by an American-built Generation III 5.7-litre alloy V8. The American-built engine has more power and torque.

I've got a 1999 VT commodore, have had injectors, plugs replaced but still have rough running in nuetral. Would it the plate where the leads plug into?

i just had this problem i had water coming into the motor via the inlet manifold . the only way is to pull it apart and look and replace $75 for Holden for inlet manifold gasket and they have to be done up by torque wrench to 8-12 nm or 6 fpound only or you crush them big job if you know how also clean throttle body

Rough idle causes for a vt commodore 98 berlina V6 ecotec

Inlet manifold gasket loose (valley gasket) my vt was running like **** at idle only , tightened the 12 bolts near the injectors runs perfect now if that doesn't fix it the gasket may be wrecked $70 kit or get it done
Water was getting into the throttle body and into the cylinders causing irregular and irratick loping and rough idle it had me thinking it was all different things like leads , air leaks , bad fuel , bloked injectors , computers , coils
You'll probably find some loose one their is a torque sequence but try just tightening them start with middle side 4 first hope this helps and saves people money

Torque settings for valve cover (cam cover) on

89 INCH pounds. Meaning very little torque, they will snap if given just a tad too much torque.
