yes

Keyless start (push-button start) metrics are usually checked as a matter of routine at service intervals.
It can also mean the keyless remote has lost the handshake code to correctly disable the immobiliser on unlock.

If the engine light is coming on The car is telling you it needs a service

Gary H.
Gary H.

Cannot wheelspin in VF Commodore because of anti-abuse in the electronics that does not allow it.
A 'pop' from exhaust is engine misfire, and may point to spark plugs, injectors or a combination.
Any time the Check Engine warning light comes on, book the car in for examination/service.

Are timing chains still an issue in the sv6 my17 series 2 sedans? As mine arrives next week. It has only done 34,000 km. And how much do they cost currently to repair if need be?

Cost depends on who does the job Holden dealers. Lube mobile. My car ( kmart tyre & auto) ultra tune. will charge 10 times more than a local independent mechanic Yes timing chains are still an issue some are failing at 50,000 km

Gary H.
Gary H.

Timing chains are *not* an issue in VF Commodores as they were in the VZ-series, where a faulty batch was mixed up with the correct chains, thus causing elongation and stretch, typically around 50,000 to 70,000km. The VF (SIDI DI) chain metrics are similar and same number of chains, but do not have faults. They should easily last the life of the engine without changing, provided service intervals are adhered to. Where VZ chains required replacement, it was a $3,000 job and 2.5 days.

Occasionally If I do a long trip on a hot day the fuel gauge stops working. The next day after a trip the fuel gauge works normally. Holden put the scanner on the car and the gauge corrected itself. can you please provide a possible explanation or is this a known problem. My car is a 2014 SV6 with only 70,000 kilometres.

Thanks Michael. I suspect that it is an electrical glitch in the fuel sender unit.

Really depends on the model. SV6? V8? Calais? You can get a really good series two maybe with still some factory warranty for that money.

I am considering buying a good second hand VF series two fairly soon, to replace a very reliable VX S Pack.
But one thing holds me back... MY VX has 331000 k's on it and while the engine is rattly, it still goes and is reliable.
Has the dreaded timing chain stretch issue that plagued the VZ to VE V6 models finally been sorted?
If so, just what did Holden do to resolved the issue? I know about the software "work-around" put in to mask the issue, but has the problem itself, been solved?
Thanks.
Jeff

Good question. I'm looking around for a second hand Commodore because the fords seem too small for me to get in and out of comfortably, but i can't afford anything 2013 onwards. A mate says to avoid these models due to the timing chain issue, he bought a very nice 2002 model i may have to buy something of that era.

Agreed . Room is one reason I bought the VX. With the front seat set comfortably for me, I can stretch my legs out (off the pedals) and straighten my knees! Great on a trip - set cruise, and give those tired old knees a stretch! Oh, and without moving the seat, I can easily get in the back seat (behind my seat) And have good leg room. I am 6'4 in the old money.
That's comfortable room!

SV6, VF 2014 model. Travelled 70,000 km. Occasionally will stall and go into "safety mode". It stop and fails to start again. It has been twice towed to the mechanics where it sits overnight and seems to start without any issues the next day. Nobody has been able to diagnose the problem. One error code said that the fuel rail pressure sensor low. Any ideas for trouble shooting. I can't trust driving it anywhere at the moment.
