Does the instrument cluster of 2010 model fit into a 2009 lx model? Is it a straight swap? I want to upgrade it to a newer version where it has the headlight indicator

I have recently cleaned the EGR valve and throttle body of my 2.2L diesel captiva and now I can't get the motor to fire up properly. It will run very roughly on about half throttle pedal position for a short time before stopping. I've performed the diesel priming process many times, and even loosened the injector lines to allow air to escape. I can't run the recommended throttle position learn because the motor wont idle. Is there a specific EGR valve programming sequence I need to perform? I'm getting codes: P0405 - EGR valve position sensor low input; P0487 - EGR system, throttle position control circuit malfunction; and P0087 - low fuel rail pressure. Thinking the pump may not be getting enough supply from the fuel tank and lift pump, I checked and replaced the fuel filters which are due for replacement at 120,000Km (9000Km early) and bled the system. Still no better on attempting a restart. I should add that it was running fine before removing the EGR and cooler, but there was a bit of carbon build-up on the valve and throttle body that I discovered when replacing the intercooler hose.

ABS, traction control, anti-skid and descent control lights illuminated. Sometimes turning off. Checked wiring and was some damage to insulation, have taped.

This is most likely a faulty wheel speed sensor. Either check for any codes using an OBD2 scanner or just replace all 4 sensors. They’re cheap and easy to fit.

Please help. What is a EGR cooler problem?


Not a mechanic......these vehicles have the EGR system to meet the US emissions standards. What it means is that the engine runs cooler and can clog up with carbon unless regular long runs are used to raise the operating temp of the engine and burn off that carbon! There is an EGR cooler fitted as part of the system which is basically a Heat Exchanger with the inputs being Exhaust Gases and Coolant, with the intent to cool the Gases and force more through, (I believe). All things are possible so a Leak or Blockage can occur. Always expensive.

Holden Captiva 2010 Turbo diesel, where can I find the transmission fluid ? And how would I fill up the transmission fluid without pumping it in ?

Where is the transmission dip stick situated

Like many Holdens they do not have a dip stick for the transmission, I believe the transmission fluids are checked by unscrewing a bolt on the side of the transmission. They do not want people to be able to fill or check their own transmission levels. So they need to be done by a service center a real pain.

Navigation screen blacked out on 2012 Holden Captiva. Would this be a fuse issue?

I picked up my newer Holden Captiva CG LTZ MY18 on Wednesday. I usually keep the Car Radio Code in my manual handy shouId ever have a service and the mechanics disconnect the battery. I don't want to have to take it to a Holden Dealer and pay $33 for the code. I am wondering if it could be 117011 which is sticky taped to the front of the manual? Could someone let me know please if they know for sure? Thanks

I would recommend to take it into a mechanic, with this lemon it is not worth the risk and if you are unlucky you could end up spending thousands of dollars.

I’m trying to find a wiring diagram for the stereo. It’s the split system. Camera connects into the navigation unit in the top of my dash. Need to know what wire goes where on a new system. Ac and camera affected.
