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

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.

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!

My VF Storm 2015 appears to be a lemon sadly. Purchased brand new and at 32K shot a fuel pump needed towing. At 63K yet again a fuel pump failure towed again allegedly fixed then after 80 klms same again and towed. Has anyone else had this issue.. Dealer not being very helpful?

Hi Shane. My son has a similar problem with his 2014 VF SV6. It has stalled several times and required towing. He has only done 70,000km. Nobody at the local Holden service centre seems to be able to diagnose the problem. Have you had any luck with yours since this post??

Hey Michael after it was towed for the 3rd time and 5 weeks without it. The 3rd new fuel pump was put in and a section of the wiring loom replaced. So far so good but I dont trust the car now sadly. Holden warranty is useless

I have heard on other forums that the fuel pump wiring can get trapped when the tank is replaced. Sometimes the section of wiring loom is replaced, or simply insulated. Perhaps the dealer has done this at the last visit, or should do. Maybe if it happens again, seek the support of an experienced auto electrician. I mean experienced! You dont want some hick learning his trade on your car.

My: 2013 Holden Evoke
I have Water Sloshing Back & Forward.
On the drivers side of my car; I've checked the front & back doors.
But there wasn't any water in the doors.
I think the "Water Mite Be in the Side Channel under the doors"
Can someone "Please" tell me how to fix this problem?
Thanks hope to hear from you.

Do you only hear it, when the fuel tank is full?
