one-maintenance-guide-holden-commodore No matter what model of the Holden Commodore you own, each of them performs efficiently if it is serviced regularly. You can follow a very simple maintenance plan where you have to do the following 5 checks every week to keep your Holden Commodore good as new.
Checking the Engine Oil Level
First off, park your Holden Commodore on a level ground.
Your Holden Commodore’s engine must be warm, give it a few minutes so that the oil is settled.
Pull the dipstick out and clean it with a cloth.
Insert it again and after around 4-5 seconds, take it out.
Make sure the oil is within those two circular marks on the dipstick. If not, refill the engine’s oil.
Checking the Tire Pressure
Make sure your Commodore’s tires are cold.
Remove the valve cover from the tire.
To check the pressure, put the tire gauge on the valve stem.
Make sure that the pressure matches the one mentioned on the placard found inside the car’s door.
Repeat the same procedure for the tires.
Checking the Air Conditioning
You just have to turn on the AC for a couple of minutes every week, especially in the winter season.
For hay fever issues, you can ask your dealer if your vehicle can get a pollen filter in its system.
Checking the Brake Fluid
First off, check the brake fluid level through the tank without taking the cover off.
The fluid level must be in between the minimum and maximum lines.
If there is a dropping in the fluid level, go to your Holden dealer ASAP to get it fixed.
Checking the Engine Coolant
Refer to the instructional guide of your vehicle to locate the coolant tank.
DO NOT open this tank if the engine is hot.
Always, check the coolant level before starting the engine. When it’s cold.
Make sure you use a Holden Commodore suggested coolant with clean water.
The ratio of the mixture can be found in the instructional guide of your Holden Commodore model.
