I'd say they only mention SSV and Calais is because of the projector headlight.
But I've got an SV6, with SSV headlights.
Straight swap out,...
Yeah they'll fit. Complete swap over, plug n play.
Just make sure you get the right series - 1 or 2
Nope - completely different
yeah I'd get some SSL for the rear, otherwise with the SSSL it will be head up, bum down.
Mine sits at 95mm ground clearance (centre muffler)....
I literally just done this to mine last weekend (albeit a Wagon).
The V6 model, there is no "ultra low" for the fronts. It shares the same part...
Checked the oil? If it looks like ice coffee,coolant and oil are mixing because of a blown head gasket.
I was of the understanding that the only difference between the LLT and LFX intake was that the LFX was composite and there for lighter than the...
The alloytec engines in the last of the VZ and first VE were notorious for stretched timing chains.
If the later SIDI LLT or LFX engines had had...
The new SIDI engines from late 09 onwards, are brilliant if maintained properly.
Im going to give myself a plug here and say, my 2010 SV6 wagon...
You'd be able smell if the catalytic converter had blow all its guts out. IT STINKS!!!
Even though I love the V6 Commodore's, getting a "nice" note out of them, just doesn't happen.
I put a stock V8 exhaust on mine, and its just...
there should be a relay that you hear click and the fan turn on at idle when the air con is on.
Check that that is happening. If not, it could be...
I had it.
Was the exhaust bouncing on the centre cross member.
The exhaust rubber mounts had stretched over time so it was moving a lot
lets just say the car weighs 000kg, you've only got to hold 500kg each corner.
I've got 2 sets of 1500kg. so holds up 750kg each corner.....good...
not quite in my opinion.
the car weighs 1800kg (near enough)
you'd need 2 sets of the 1200kg stands to hold the whole car up.
If it says STD suspension...its just the same as the Omega, Berlina etc.
Its not FE2
And for your LSD tag, there is a sticker on the bottom...
Could be the head gasket man.
Oil and coolant can mix that way too
I'm the same. I use CarScanner, but the same PID' s you've mentioned, and nothing.
But on a scan tool, I can see the ATT, so it's there, just...
Mine does it too sometimes.
I think it's when it's a dry window and there's not enough power in the motor to drag it all the way down again.
If you want something different....mod the V6.
If you want the dame, get a V8
There was also a massive compression ratio difference between the Falcon Lpi and Petrol engines, which I read somewhere really made the petrol...
To me - it looks like the LY7. Which is the one in all those videos I posted earlier.
[ATTACH] - 3.6L LY7 Alloytec (series 1)
[ATTACH] - 3.6L...
The 3.6L V6 factory LPG in the series II has a power output of 180....why is it not as powerful as the SV6's LLT / LFX at 210, if gas has a higher...
Ok do that
Then if it’s a 2009, it must be a late 2009 and would be the new SIDI engine.
In which case you don’t have to take anything off.
The coil packs...
Give these ago
Not exactly the way I’d do it, but mines a different engine.
[MEDIA] - this one actually shows how to take off...
No special tools are required.
But with the HY7 engine, the intake manifold has to come off, because the spark plugs and coils are...
no mate. I had single zone. Now I have dual.
Was completely plug and play, just had to get the console VIN programmed.
It all works, dual zone,...
Not sure man. Once I got my dash apart, I swapped out the HVAC and the centre console in about 10 mins. Put it all back together and it all...
You have to have the SSV or Calais centre console upgrade, which has the schematics built into it and the buttons on the facia to be able to...
If you feel the need to, go ahead. At the end of the day, it’s probably $10 adjustment?
Yeah it’s normal
I can’t see the video but yes it’s normal. Few beeps and clicks all normal
Had the same thing
Was the seal of the flexible rubber cable harness holder thing - technical term that is
New rubber - fixed
Is a C$@t of a...
You have to change the whole arm
The SIDI straight gas engine put down 150rwkw (when new) which is down about 40 rwkw compared to the SIDI petrol (when new).
It also uses about...
I've seen those little suction pumps that are on eBay where you stick a tube down the dipstick and suck out the oil.....is ridiculous. (in my...
Not sure mate.
