Holden problem

ok ok i know i will get heaps of sh!t hung on me for posting this, or for that matter even trying to help a holden person. But my work mate has just bought a brand new vx s commodore. its a manual v6.

the problem is every time you change gears the revs go up hang there for a second then fall down. i thought it was his driving but 5 different ppl have driven the car and it did it to all of us. the car has scince been back to gmh 3 times to get them to fix it and they recon the is no problem with it. (surprise surprise). the thing that has got me stumped about it, is that free reving it it will not do it. but when under load. it will

any thoughts would be appreciated


thanks

Tim

I was thinking the same there could be something obstructing the throttle linkages, I'm not familiar with the Holden setup though.

Tell your mate to buy a Ford. :s5

A good angle to use when trying to push the idea of an XR6 as a company car is that they hold resale value much better than a std model.

On the subject of the Comodore's problem - have a good look at the engine mounts and all the vacuum plumbing on the engine - a broken or loose engine mount can result in the whole engine moving around and affecting the throttle cable and vacuum leaks can do all sorts of wierd things on EFI cars.

Very well said, i read a post on carpoint when the VX came out
The poor lady said that in one day the bumper fell off, the starter motor exploded and gearbox got stuck in third
AU's might not be great racecars but they are awesome on the road. Don't dream it LIVE IT

throttle probs.

Just some advice for you if the vehicle is still under warranty. Go back to the service department demand to speak to the service manager and ask them to send a holden guy out to the dealer to test the vehicle for you. They do have service guys out on the field that look at these type of problems. You will be present as well at the time. They do this for customers. I have requested this. BUT you will probably need to log a call first with the Holden Customer Assistance center. It's a 1800 no. It will get escelated and sorted for you hopefully. Drive it yourself with him present in the car. The no. should be in the books supplied to you in the vehicle. At least this way he sees it you see it as well as the service manager. Good luck with it.

Sorry about the typos. Couldnt be bothered running a spell checker.
