I wrote the original review on this vehicle. I am disappointed to say that one morning it in inexplicably stopped. Cranks over beautifully, but will NOT start. I have done lots of research into this matter, only to be confronted with a plethora of possible causes, but nothing specific. Holden simply don't want to know (the Tech 2 computers say no faults). Even some money hungry mechanics refuse to even begin to look at it, as the 4JX1 motor has a serious history for stopping, never to be started again.
As investigative repairs are becoming more than the actual value of the vehicle when it was going, the Jackaroo that I was so in love with, will simply be sold to a wrecker to park alongside the others with the same issue and be broken apart. A shame really, as it is such a capable 4x4 great to drive, economical, and up until it stopped, very reliable. Now I have to buy another 4x4. I can't afford a new Colorado, so it will have to be something else.
Hi. Just wanted to ask you if you knew anything on the 2001 TD CRD L800A model jacks. I just bought mine with 195ks on it. When I test drove it, I got the wife to rev it on the spot and drive off under heavy throttle with no sign of any smoke (blue, white or black). I am reading a few disheartening comments on the vehicle, and am worried I have made a bad purchase.
Also, do the engines in these have timing belts or chains, and at what Ks do they need to be replaced?
Thanks for your time, Brenden.
