Starter Motor Problems

Hi All,

I have an annoying problem with my VL Wagon. It keeps killing starter motors. My mechanic has put in three and I have put in one and they always seem to die a few months later.

The ol' girl has always been a bit of a pig to kick over when she is cold, though not excessively so. I think I am out of patience with recon starters (this will be the 5th in a little over 18 months!), and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what would be the best option for me.

Are there after market or genuine starters that anyone can recommend and what can I do to help prevent this occurring?

how much for an LJ 4 door ? help needed

help needed, my nanna's LJ 4 doorr is goin to be up for sale. part of a deceased estate. how much for an original S or SL 2 owner under 100,000 miles? She used to complain about how it handled until it got to about 95-100 and we advised her of the change from miles to km's. she is 92 and last drove it about 4 weeks ago. the paint outside is not good but with no rust and a mint interior it would have to be worth something. please call me on 0422 459 377. please note i am not chasing a buyer at present, just an estimate fr settlement on my nanna;s estate. thanks john

OLD HOLDENS IN MOVIES!!

Heya everyone.

Took this hot arse chick to come see a scary movie with me tonight.. we went to see WOLF CREEK..

F'n great movie, scared the breasts off her. Scored easy points this way, with some finger up the skirrrttt.... i mean... ummm... theres a great holden premier in there (i think its a hx or something similar to that yeah?) anyways, its got a awesome driving scene in it where the bad guys in the holden chasing down a mitsubishi wagon.

Think the holden was a 350 by the unreal torque it had. Its worth watching the movie just for that, but its a great movie anyway.

so go see it and post a new thread on what you thought about it!!!

My HD

Can you help on the specs of my HD.
Its a Premier Sedan with disc brake front end and in original condition and complete and have owned it for 15 years, (second owner). Two questions, 1. it's original paint is a metalic blue similar to that of a WB Statesman, whats the name of the colour?? 2. the engine in it is a 186 HP engine, whats different about the HP engine to standard 186 if any, one person said it was a JP engine but it is HP in large block letters on the side of the block.

Respray Quality..

I have a Hj panel van and was wondering what quality paint job/respray i would get for 2000, the body is 100% rust free and has been rust proofed. I would be looking to respray it either original sandman mandarin red or Jamaican green with the original black side boards and door frames.

does anyone know of a good quality resprayer?

AM i dreaming for a good paint job at that price??

feedback appreciated..

Car Wont Start.

Not an old holden Question but thought you blokes might know anyway, I have VS Commodore, Somtimes it wont start in PARK, used to do it rarly when I got it about 3 years ago but stoped doing it, then it started to play up again, would try to start it in PARK but would not do anything, not even click, nudge the stick and away it would go, then it would not start in PARK at all, had to put it in neutral, Then it was fine again for ages, Now it wont start in neutral as well, but does start in both if I keep turning the key on and off, took me an hour and a half to get it going the other day. Any ideas or help would be great.
