    bulkybob has started Which Engine Oil Do I Need ? in Voyager 4th Generation (2001-2007).
    hi everyone i've just bought my first grand voyager it's a 2007 deisel and i was wondering what is the best engine oil for it ? any help will be gratefully received cheers rob
    • QinteQ
      It's your choice I use 5/30 full synth. Chrysler manual says 5/40 but even here in top north east we hardly ever get -10C. Cheepo to full synthetic is a price decision. Filters change equally critical.

      I'm an infrequent driver, I use full synth for engine protection. Your choice. Best of luck.

    • oldginger

      Thanks for the help QinteQ. I will get my wife or grandson to help me with this because once you go to downloads and the rest your talking gobbledygook. I will add though, that I can happily take them apart and rebuild them as daft as that may sound. Once again many thanks. As a side, in my opinion the much aligned Austin Maxi was the most versatile and mechanically friendly car designed and once relaunched with the 1750 engine and rod link gear change I found it excellent especially with a wife and 3 small kids. I would be interested in the opinions of any members who owned or experienced these cars, regards oldginger.

    • QinteQ
      Agree, I clearly remember I was more interested in the 'bench' seat at the time.[wistful smile at my age].

      Sorry about the gobbledygook. Cursor over, left click, right click, download to, your puter will ask/tell to point, send it where I said earlier. Best of luck.

    Hi guys,   I need some advice. The Red Handbrake warning light has started illuminating and giving a "Ding" when it does.   This is intermittent but is becoming more frequent.  ...
    • Sentech

      Thanks for the inputs.

       

      The fluid level is spot on,and the vehicle sailed thru its inspection less than a month ago.

       

      I'll check out the other adjustments recommended this weekend and give an update.

    • bignev

      I know you say the fluid level is spot on, but is it at the top?

       

      The warning light is also for low fluid, so if it's intermittent it may be moving fluid, just my thought but if it isn't already bring it up to max, and if the light coming on is "repeatable" under circumstances you know, then maybe fix the float up and drive it to see if it comes on at that.

       

      Or is it the handbrake switch become loose? And moving and coming on when the lever is fully down?

    • QinteQ
      I only ever use Chrysler recommend oil which is ATF+4. It doesn't have to be their Mopar brand but I'd never put anything else in my friend. Ditto recommend engine/coolant/brake fluid even.

      The tranny is a sensitive hydraulic fluid coupling / converter not just a lubricant. Best of luck.
    • bignev

      Slip doesn't sound good, maybe some new fluid to drop out some of the dirty contaminated crud that might be getting in the way of the friction plates will help. A change of fluid certainly shouldn't make it worse!

       

      Be aware though that even at somewhere between 4 and 5 litres of the ATF+4 you will only change about half of its capacity. Loads of fluid is retained in the torque converter, but you do NOT want to empty that - a whole world of mither will follow.

       

      So if it helps a bit, and your wallet can stand it, do the change again a while later, after the new dilutes the old nicely, and of course the new filter cleans it up too.

       

      And a word of advice if you're doing it yourself, it's not difficult, but when you undo the transmission sump bolts, leave the corners in place but unscrewed say a quarter of the way, so when the seal pops it won't totally bladder all over the place. Personal experience that is.

       

      A large washing up bowl strategically positioned will be a good idea.

       

      As the cars are quite sensitive souls,  and mine is a rather ungrateful sod, I personally wouldn't risk anything other than the Mopar fluid on this.

    • 03GVCRD
      Yes, it's very simple. The upper cluster is a unit in itself and fitted with clips. You just need to gently prise it out. There is one multiplug to take out and the bulbs are a simple twist fit.
    • RichardM

      From the manual (basically as above but the Yanks are quite verbose ;

      MESSAGE CENTER
      REMOVAL
      (1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
      (2) Using a trim stick (special tool #C-4755) or equivalent, gently pry up on the front side of the message center and lift out of instrument panel opening.
      (3) Disconnect the wire connector from the back of message center.
      (4) Remove message center from vehicle. 
      NOTE: If the message center lamp needs replacing, twist out defective bulb socket and replace with a known good bulb and socket.
      INSTALLATION
      (1) Connect the wiring connector to message center.
      (2) Place message center in position on instrument panel and firmly snap into place.
      (3) Connect battery negative cable.

    • QinteQ
      GV's do not like AGM batteries and the Optima is AGM. If memory serves me Chrysler invented 'on alternator logic' as long as the 80's and still use similar set ups of pulse-width modulated (PWM) voltage regulation now.

      Red Tops are a straight swap big clob starter output, I decided not to use about 6 months after their very successful release because worldwide rhumor at the time said the quality had gone down the toilet, this aH charge duration is usually overcome by run time. In my case not overcome because of what I describe as "lifestyle" or too short too infrequent run time. This time frame coincided with the world and mama Mercel banning the previous virgin lead in SLI batteries and the abortion that is a % of scrapyard lead recycling for the green brigade in the EU.

      BCM/IPM/button thermocouple under battery sends.uninelligible AGM control info to logic in alternator. I bought an F21 AGM and had charge rate problems everafter. It took me five years to evidence the FACT that the F21 manufactured two identical ID numbers one was AGM/grey the other SLI/black and I have photographic evidence of this.

      So we all make mistakes. That's what forums are for .. .. to learn from each other. Best of luck.
    • QinteQ
      See here : https://www.babybmw.net/viewtopic.php?t=81439&start=15

      I bought one of these BA5 battery testers about 10 years ago. It correctly reported the F21 as an AGM but of course the GV can NOT deal with AGM. The BA7 can not arbitrarily call it by any other type so DO NOT buy one:: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clore-Automotive-BA5-100-1200-Electronic/dp/B0017R5EQK

      I bought a much more up to date battery tester which does much much more including arbitrarily calling the battery an SLI, it was this one : https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=outul+KONNWEI+KW210+12V+Automotive+Car+Battery+Tester+Digital+Multi+Language+Analyzer+Tester+Tool&ref=nb_sb_noss

      Sorry DUP, damn VMmedia.

      REACH rules directive.

      Lead batteries are already 99% recycled in Europe – one of the highest recycling rates of any product. And advanced lead batteries are used to store renewable energy generated by wind and solar. Day-to-day lead batteries support emergency back-up power in hospitals, mobile phone networks and computer servers which support the internet.

      The claim is that secondary smelting is of the same high quality as virgin lead. Fake news? industry / EU spin marketing - take your choice. I do clearly recall the outcry about 6 months after the 1st release of spirals claiming they reduced the spec quality on SLI's and made comment on this forum at that time.
    • oldginger

      Hi, only just picked up this topic. I read lots of topics during my research into replacing the battery that came with my GV. Where I live is a very well known battery supplier and everyone I consulted pointed me that way. Without hesitation he recommended a red top and in the time he has sold them he has not had any complaints. It has performed very well and my trips are usually local & sometimes days apart. I bought my battery back in early November so a few cold spells and my very old Exide battery tester shows all's well. I will let the forum know the minute there's any change. I think I bought my car around the same time as you, broke all the rules, but touch wood I seem to have done well. There are obviously common niggles but the forum sure helps. A couple of Austin Maxi's have come up lately but she who must be obeyed says " your too old to mess with cars" so "NO". Soooo easy to work on Issigonis the working mans designer. Love the Voyager though. All the best.

      Hi there,

      sounds like a right nightmare this one.

       

      I don't suppose you bought it from a garage / dealer by any wonderful chance?????

      Because if you did just fire it straight back at them!

       

      If you've never looked at an engine you are not going to sort this one out sadly.

       

      However - if you search and post in the Vehicle assistance section, you will find some pointers, but you will actually need to know what your car is. Boxy shape front is the 5th generation, mostly they came in from 2008 though so you most likely have a 4th gen model, IF it's 2007 - check your vehicle registration document.

       

      Doesn't help with your problems but I'd guess it's more likely to be a diesel??

       

      And where in the country are you? Someone may know a friendly garage near you.

      Don't want to teach you to suck eggs, but earth yourself before touching the board. Also, how big is your soldering iron? I also had to replace those lights so I bought a soldering iron with a very fine end. You don't want to get that solder anywhere other than where it should be.

       

      But what a ridiculous set up those lights are! Every other car I've had the instrument lights that either screw in or are bayonet fittings. Having to get solder out is just stupid.

      BrownSugar, this has to be the greatest reply to a post ever written by a person! Almost sold it to me on the strength of that reply alone!

      Weirdly enough my date has an old mate in Stevenage who had a 300c!

      I’m going to see it tomorrow, it’s a tourer in black with grey leather heated power seats but no Satnav just regular cd/radio. Hopefully she’s sweet!

      Thanks again mate!

      Good lad.

       

      What a coincidence, Stevenage is my home town.

       

      A black tourer is cool. You'll have to get those windows limo tinted though.

       

      Like I said, there are plenty about, so if you're not sure, walk away and go look at the next one. Having said that, the 300c is an eyeful, when you walk up to it your heart says buy it and your head says hang on a minute.

       

      The driver's seats often wear on the outside edge. They suffer from front suspension noises. The diesel engine is a Mercedes unit and if taken care of should be good for at least 200,000 miles. However, the damn thing takes nine litres of synthetic oil, so an oil change will cost you 100 quid even if you do it yourself.

       

      But never mind all that, you've now got a hankering for a 300. The only cure is to get one. If you don't you'll regret it.

       

      Welcome to the club mate.

      looks a nightmare, something has to go in first though, just a pity it is not more reliable

      You know you're an Italian nutter when... You see the number 75 and instantly think that's an Italian (Alfa) car number, not British lol.

      Then you realise he meant a bloody Rover!  :lol:

      That thought occured to me after I posted.  :D  :D

      I guess as my car is older and over 100,000 miles I may be the first of many! £275 if Alfaworkshop do it (so common they have it on their menu) or £30 for the same genuine Vauxhall part from Lookers on ebay and I skin my own knuckles.

      Ah that makes sense. I know a few peeps that have had that exact EGR cooler problem, so like you say quite common on the earlier cars. What you going to do? Pay or play?
