    Sunroof knocking noise.

    Hey guys and girls. I'm having an issue with the sunroof in my Calais Wagon. When I'm driving and go over sharp bumps, even very slight ones, the sunroof makes a knocking noise as if it's loose when closed. It's not leaking but cruising at 100 kays there is some wind noise. Wondering if anyone...

    So of course she did what they always do, once you're going to take it to the mechanics the issue stops. Started her up this morning, made the same ticking noise for about 4 seconds then stopped. Went to get it looked at anyway and the verdict is in. And according to my mechanic(who I trust and...

    Ugh so first real mechanical issue with the wagon. Half way into work today engine light she comes on, still running fine but I pull over open the bonnet to try listen for anything, nothing out of the ordinary. I get into work and as I pull into the rear car park I rear a really loud ticking...

    So I work at a bottle shop that supplies a few pubs, yesterday we got a big order and the boss wasn't there with his Ute, so it was the wagon to the rescue. Usually sits probably 30mm higher than that, but 32 slabs got her tucking a bit of rim lol just glad the tein coilovers have such a stiff...

    The other night after a quick clean, still need to give her a proper wash and decent sealant application. Actually surprised at the lack of swirling in the paint, it has some scratches but where the paint is solid there are hardly any imperfections. PS apologies for the poor pic quality, need a...

    Engine Light flashing / ESP off / Miss firing / Rough Idle

    Close, was injector #6 Hahaha also got the spark plugs done at the same time as I don't think they'd ever been changed, now with the injectors flushed and new plugs it's running sweet as a nut.

    Thanks guys, I'll have to take a few more pics soon. Yeah I love the pentagons, they've got a few bits of rash here and there but nothing I can't fix. Just had new plugs put in(fairly sure they'd never been changed) and got the injectors flushed as I was having some issues with it stumbling at...

    Engine Light flashing / ESP off / Miss firing / Rough Idle

    Sounds exactly what happened to my 08 Calais Wagon this morning. Rough idle, no rattles just stumbling over itself, engine light on and esp off light illuminated also. The fix in your case was a faulty injector? Also assuming given your name is chappys ss it's a V8?

    So, it's been a long time since I've been on the forum, for many unfortunate reasons, but that's beside the point. The point is I'm back and in a good place :) So back to the story, this is my 08 Calais Wagon. I've had it for 2 months and am already madly and deeply in love(upgraded from a...

    [VIC] Wrong address on fine

    It's called being mature. Own up to your sh*t. The end of last year I was pulled over for having a headlight out, as a result he checked my tyres, I knew this was going to be bad, 50,000 city kays had obviously taken its toll and I got defected. Even though I had to get a loan from a friend, I...

    Best bang for YOUR buck? Save your money for a while and buy some good, comfortable running/walking shoes. As you'll need them once your car is done.

    Torana may be on its way back

    My dream for a new Torana. For holden to just pick a model of torana then copy the body shape really closely. Just change it a bit, smooth it out for some better Aero, then ignore any engine with 4 cylinders and you've got a car worthy of the badge. Just imagine it, 1300kg and 327kw. Plus...
