SOURCE: My car engin dose not start,it is 1993 nissan bluebird ARX?

This def sounds like a fule pump issue ...it should be located in the gas tank its self although i would check the fuses first before getting into the tank.
If this is in a 240sx the way into the tank is through the trunk.Lift the carpet and you will see on the mid right side a small 6-8" lid with some wires going into it. Unscrew that and your on your way in.
If you do pull out the pump just be careful handling it as to not break the sensor unit attached to the pump.

SOURCE: dose the engine oil top up the gearbox oil in the toyota rava4 19

NO the engine oil only tops off the engine it self and the gear box uses a different oil and to top it off and check is different from the engine dip stick. Good luck and your manual should tell you when it's time to service your gear box oil.

SOURCE: how do i replace the gearbox of a holden VR?

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

SOURCE: when setting the ignition timing

The engine timing markers down on the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley should be aligned with the timing indicator on the engine block to "0" degrees when the engine is in the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, and this is TDC or "Top Dead Center". When something blows out of the spark plug hole that only means that the piston is coming up on TDC, but the crankshaft will still have to be turned until the timing markers are at "0" degrees. You should be sure that you do know how to properly align the timing marks to "0" degrees, and the timing marks must be set at "0" degrees before the distributor can successfully be installed.

Be certain that the timing marks are set at "0" degrees and on the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder, or the timing will be 180 degrees off when you install the distributor. This has to be precise and guessing will not get the distributor properly clocked in so that the ignition timing can be correctly set.

Once you are certain that the timing is set to "0" degrees "TDC", then mark the distributor housing where the #1 position on the distributor cap will be when the cap is installed on the distributor, so that the distributor housing shows a reference mark where the #1 position is, then the distributor should be installed so that the ignition rotor is pointing directly at the #1 position on the distributor housing, or just before the #1 position mark according to the rotation of the ignition rotor. The distributor should be able to turn and point the ignition rotor on either side of the #1 position mark to provide plenty of timing advance or ****** so that the ignition timing can properly be adjusted to specifications after the engine has been started.

Be sure that you follow the proper timing procedure for that vehicle and remove any timing spout connectors that are described in the set timing procedures

Also, be certain that you are actually using the #1 cylinder to set the engine to TDC and to actually time the engine with a timing light. Here is a firing order diagram that should also help to assist you. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Wat kind of v8 is suitable for a 1997 3.8 v6 holden commodore excutive


your VT /VX came out with a V8 engine

you could go up the next commy V8 model it has roller rockers
you can have a v6 or v8 supercharged if you like

once all bolted in you need a mutt 2 diagnostic reader to reset all the keys and modules and immobilizer for it to start and run

My battery went flat and I jump started my car (Holden VT) now my stereo is locked. Dose anybody know how to unlock it. It's a eurovox radio unit.


Samantha, You need the VIN and the radio serial number. Take those into a Holden dealer to get the radio code and programming instructions from the dealer. They may want a small fee for the #. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Give me innapropiate


Hello

Are you want to take revenge. Let me know if you are.

I am not expertise in solving case for Car.

Sorry, My mistake, I take it in wrong. I think you are expertise in Computer and Hardware, So I had asked the question from you.

  • 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
