SOURCE: My son went through a

ouch, sorry to hear that. i have seen that many times. and the easiest thing to do is yes install long block. but there are more choices to take, here is my thought. OK so they say number one is in the oil pan ? so they removed the oil pan ? OK well then how do the cylinder walls look ? um OK are the scratched ? scored or is the a huge gouge on the cylinder wall ? OK if the wall is OK then the piston took the hit ? they need to do their job not just shot gun it. have they took a borescope in through the spark plug hole ? to look for damage ? if the piston and rod are damaged and nothing else then replace the piston and rod. they are trying to get ya for parts. careful here cause they may get mad and jack the labor. stay calm and get several bids for the job. us techs are starving right now as well as the small shop owner. use this and take a loss for diag at the current place if ya have to. you would prolly save money at a machine shop type of auto repair who does machine work in house. good luck

The water pump is on the passenger side of the engine below the tensioner. Also look for coolant leaks from the head gasket.

Not familiar enough with Holden to say, but according to Wiki, it is an Australian version of a GM, German Opel.

Here is what the waterpump looks like:

I would suspect the thermostat has stuck closed. Drain the system, heater on hot, flush the system, replace the thermostat, pour in pure water and see if that cures the problem. If it does then drain the system again and pour in a 50/50 mx of antifreeze and distilled water. You also need to make sure the cooling fan is working and the water pump is circulating coolant in the system.

What each colourvwiringis for in vx ,2002,Commodore


The Holden Commodore (VX) is an executive car that was produced by the Australian manufacturer Holden from 2000 to 2002. It was the second iteration of the third generation of this Australian made model. Its range included the luxury variants, Holden Berlina (VX) and Holden Calais (VX), and it formed the basis for a new generation Holden Ute (VU) coup? utility and Holden Monaro (V2) coup?.
The VX series was produced between October 2000 and September 2002, as a minor restyling update to the VT series from 1997. It introduced greater model differentiation along with gains in crash safety. An intermediate Series II was launched in August 2001, featuring a revised suspension system among other changes.

Thanks,

Landon

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 need the engines ECU and the V8 gearbox
manual diff ratios can be optional

1997 -2002 engines will bolt in

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

How to install a magnetige pick on a 1997 holden v6


we dont have holden here, but the FSM on all cars cover that.
buy one?
the CKP sensor "crank position sensor" is found in 3 places on all engines.
(bolts to front of engine Front means below front at crank pully)
others are at flywheel
and some are in the center of engine, near impossible to remove.
so lets use google, (its best value if ever and search)
the best way to search is to know what engine, and V6 is not that.
its here.
An overhauled Ecotec (Emissions and Consumption Optimisation through TEChnology) version of the Buick V6 engine
so its and Ecotec, we narrow the field. (research 101)
but which one. ?
1997 holden when a little nuts, with opel parts, etc. very hard to track.
ok here it is series II
OMG a number the engine is and L36, wow.

our V6 is here L36
first google hit L36

http://www.gmforum.com/1992-1999-91/dtc-p0336-crankshaft-position-ckp-sensor-circuit-229719/

cant say for holden.
but look , see it?

better , post symptoms... far better than wild guessing.
