Check the condition of the drive belt as it may be hard/cracked and slipping .check all idler pulleys for free spinning operation as a bearing could be failing causing the belt to slip.

It could be just a stuck valve or a failed shift solenoid, but it really needs to be diagnosed by a Auto Trans specialist. They can plug in to the computer and check fault codes which should give them at least an indication of what the issue is. It may even be a common fault, in which case they might be able to tell you what's likely to be wrong just from the description. Ring around a few trans shops and see if you can get any good info out of them, and ask what their diagnosis charge is, and get a rough estimate on a trans rebuild. Then price up a second hand trans with low kms and see if it's worth going down that track.
Hope this helps, Mark

SOURCE: car stalls, oil light comes on, smoke from under hood

sound like the overheating of the engine did some internal damage. ethier an intake or head gasket or maybe even a warped or cracked head. worse case senero would be a cracked block. check the oil see if it looks milky like a grey sludge. most likely it is a head gasket. have a leak down test preformed to confirm. the labor for the head gaskets is 9 hours for 1 or 11.5 for 2. I would replace both and have the mechanic check the heads and block for cracks while he has it apart.

SOURCE: problem with tempture gauge. keeps reading high

Hello! This is actually a pretty common issue on the '04's - and I've had it myself. There was a TSB put out about it, in fact. Here is the info from the TSB:

Subject: Speedometer Erratic Movement, Fuel Gauge Does Not Go to Full After FIlling, Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge Reads Hot and Coolant Temperature Light Illuminates (Reprogram IPC) #05-08-49-003A - (04/18/2005)

Models: 2004 Pontiac GTO Built Prior to VIN Breakpoint 4L296011
Condition Some customers may comment on one or more of the following conditions:
• Speedometer jumps erratically. Gauge may go up to 200 MPH or not return to zero. • Fuel gauge does not move off empty when tank is full. • Engine coolant temperature gauge reads hot and coolant temperature light illuminates. These conditions may be intermittent.
Correction Technicians are to reprogram the IPC with an updated software calibration. This new service calibration was released with TIS satellite data update version 1.0 available January 10, 2005. As always, make sure your Tech 2® is updated with the latest software version.
Important: Vehicles built after the VIN breakpoint must have the IPC replaced to correct these conditions.
Warranty Information For vehicles repaired under warranty, use:

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.

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
