What if I've run out of fuel(diesel) 20013 captiva CG/lX and it won't start


The manual does describe how to bleed air from the fuel line. Can be done from the drivers seat without getting hands dirty. I did it once when the fuel line popped off.

I have a 2016 LTZ Captiva Diesel. Recently the yellow spanner light has come on and the car is over revving when idle. But goes back to normal when I press the brakes. Anyone know what the issue could be?

There is a way to reset it. But all my attempts have failed. Holden can reset it for you. They charge though..

i have Holden Captiva LTZ 7 seater MY18 from 2018 till now. it has done about 73000km and my mechanic suggested to me to sell it as normally holdens start to have problems after 80k kms. i didnt had any major problems so far. what should i do?


Mine is 2009 diesel and done 117000km and has been good so far. The most expensive job has been a new radiator and top coolant hoses ( $1200) which has just been done. My mechanic has also been warning me regarding Captiva the last few years but I feel it’s been good value for me. I’ve usually heard 100,000km as being the “scary number”.
Upgrading to equivalent two year old Toyota will be $50,000 and I’m not prepared to go there until I’m forced to.

Hello all. I have a Holden Captiva 2010 petrol.
I have had extensive repairs on this car with putting in a second hand motor which has been great but my issue is possibly the transmission although that was replaced.
Maybe gearbox?
Hoping someone can help.
It seems to be fine until it warms up then the gears seem to jolt and at times rides going up or down a hill or when changing from forward into reverse it seems to clunk a bit.
Any ideas what is wrong with it and how much to get fixed please.
