Discussion in 'VF Holden Commodore (2013 - 2017)' started by GMVPSS, Dec 1, 2017.
Does this apply to the Chevy SS?
I think they were all 'built' prior to July.
do we know from what engine or vin is affected?
Yes the VIN range would be a ideal way of working out who is affected, how good is a warranty
How many do you know of that have actually failed?
More than 25
Just in Australia?
How do they actually fail?
Yes in Australia. They fracture at the end which touches the valve and snaps off. Some take the valve out too.
Actually, Engine number range would be more useful than VIN range. Vehicles weren't built 100% in VIN sequence.
Chevy SS finished around May IIRC.
i picked up my motorsport a month ago and done close to 2000km in it already but haven’t had any issues so far knock on wood. it’s a september build so seeing this gets me thinking a little now.
Thanks for the info, sounds like a heat treatment problem, like they haven't been annealed properly.
Think I'd rather have a snapped rocker than a failed bearing letting all those needle rollers loose through the engine.
Ah well, my Director that was built late July/very early August is probably going to get new rockers.
I wonder if the courtesy tilt tray will bring the car to the closest Holden dealership to get the fix done or will bring it to my preferred dealership?
Would love to see the engine number range that were effected to keep as a record.
I spoke to customer care about by mid August director, said it could potentially be an issue, and I should have a dealer inspect it lol
There is a service bulletin for LS3 inlet valve rocker arms affecting MY17 commodores. I have been told that the VIN list is very long and the service bulletin indicates that the outlook for parts is December 18. As the VIN list is very extensive and not in any order my sept 2017 build MSE was not able to be found easily.
Is it chiseled into a stone tablet or something ? Surely its electronic and searchable....
well i guess this problem gives a `new meaning for holden going out with a bang for some unfortunate holden owners
Or a loud sounding ticking sound
New Owner. Bought my car last week but haven't taken delivery of it yet. Dealership said my car is subject to a recall and won't release it to me. I don't have any more details than that. Anyone received a letter has taken their car in yet?
The 'letters' are supposed to go out today.(11th Dec.)
