i have just recently got an Holden Vn Commodore 1990 Auto and i was wondering if any of yous have an estimate on how many k's and holden VN 1990 needs till ya need an new engine i currently has 347,476km on so there is a lot of k's on it if any of you could help it would be appreciated
If it still works it doesnt need replacing.
i have just over 300,000 on mine and i think that it is time for a new engine, it is starting to idle very rough and always overheats, but could be just a cracked head. it also depends on how you and the person before you drive it...
When it starts going too slow for you to deal with or breaks : ), LPG engines should go over 500,000 without much trouble but I think most of the petrol ones are pretty had it somewhere in the late : ) 400,000's all depends if you had mostly highway ks or city drivingOriginally Posted by chaos_driver
You saw a VN reach 1 MILLION ks on the orginal motor? : )? I'm impressed
LMFAO...ah. i know what you mean.
thanks guys i appreciate the help
i have seen 800,000 on a car and i was told that it has been around 1 time so 1.8 million and its a rusty old bomb!
my web sitestuff on the XF throttle body conversion, calais interior and lots of other junk!
I reckon this is a hard question to ask, it all reli depends on how its been drivin and how often she is service/ mods etc.

well im on 225k and its sweet as . it still breaks down here and there but thats expected of a 15 year old car .
257 here, rough idle but that just needs a idle ajustment, other than that runs like a dream... excpet the suspension which is like a pogo stick, a VERY BOUNCY ONE
Well im on 308, I also have a rough idle and alot of shakes and rattles, but she still goes hard.
357000 on a early 92 Series 1 VP, so it's the basically the same as a VN. Mostly all long distance stuff and it still feels sweet and goes hard. Yeah, other shit dies and gets replaced, but the motor & box are still going strong. (now watch the thing die on the way to work next week!)
