    Torque converters failing 16/17 models

    Starting to see alot of reports of torque converter failures on the 2016(my17) and 2017 models. If you have a shudder effect taking off from a stop, accelerating or towing you might have one that is dodgy. Reports i have read have been around 30,000km to 80,000 km on the odometer. If you do...

    Even though a digital copy has been online for a few years i find the paper version useful in the shed so i might have to order one too.

    Free wheeling hubs

    The same could be said about proving there is no fuel efficiency gains by installing them. Just because CTL wants to believe there is no gain does not make it true and he needs to prove his claims too. Fuel economy is not why you should install fwh imo anyway :rolleyes:

    Free wheeling hubs

    Yeah mate it is easy as and well worth it, you can even do it without jacking it up and removing the wheel. Just a note for 2016+ collie owners you cant install these as they changed the hubs on the facelift models.

    Free wheeling hubs

    As for the who fuel saving argument... prove it "scientifically" that it does or does not save fuel. Dont fit the hubs if you are chasing fuel efficiency because that is not why you fit them. Just buy a yaris and you will save heaps on fuel;)

    Free wheeling hubs

    The colorado is not a constant 4wd vehicle and the "wear and tear" is not on the hubs mate.

    Free wheeling hubs

    Dont bother about the fuel consumption part of it all just fit them as there is pretty much no reason not to fit them. I have had the avm433 on my collie for a few years now without issue and you will have reduced wear on parts that do not need to be spinning for 100s of thousands of km of 2wd...

    RG Auto Headlights

    Talk to someone at holden parts and ask for the part number for the ambient light sensor for the 2017 model your switch came from. You might find it on ebay or need to order it through holden parts

    Colorado 7 / Trailblazer long range fuel tank

    Then i would guess it is not designed properly because the sender unit does not measure liters so 50 or 5000 does not matter to it because it should measure the level in the tank and if it was designed properly then the gauge on the dash would display the level regardless of its capacity.

    Colorado 7 / Trailblazer long range fuel tank

    If it is designed properly it will display the correct amount of fuel in the tank as in full/empty but the "fuel range" calculation might be off because that will be based on the old capacity tank
