Unleash Your Holden Trax's Potential: Abbotts Auto Care's Recipe for Success

Hey there, fellow drivers! Today, we're diving into a situation that might feel all too familiar – a Holden Trax TJ 1.8L with an engine check light on and frustratingly low power under acceleration. It's the kind of hiccup that can turn your joyride into a real head-scratcher. But fret not, because Abbotts Auto Care is here to show you how regular servicing can save the day!

Trouble in Trax Paradise

Picture this: you're behind the wheel of your trusty Holden Trax TJ, but it's not delivering the oomph you're used to. Your engine check light is glaring back at you, and there's a noticeable lack of power when you hit the gas. Frustration sets in as you wonder what's gone wrong.

This is exactly what happened to one of our valued customers. They brought their Holden Trax to us, plagued by the engine check light and the frustrating loss of power during acceleration.

Getting to the Root of It

At Abbotts Auto Care, we're all about unraveling the mystery of car troubles. We began by scanning the car's computer system, and what did we discover? Multiple misfires in the coil pack, that's what.

Our skilled technicians knew it was time to roll up their sleeves and get down to business.

The Spark Plug Sleuth

Our first order of business was to remove the coil pack and spark plugs. Why? Because we suspected an oil leak in the spark plug tubes, which could be the cause of these misfires. And our hunch was spot on.

We identified the pesky culprit – the rocker cover gasket was causing the oil leak. The good news is that we had a solution in mind.

Smooth as Trax

We replaced the spark plugs and the coil pack to ensure your Holden Trax TJ roars to life. After the new parts were in place, we cleared the error codes, and the moment of truth arrived – the test drive.

The result? No more engine check light, and the power was back under your foot! We did one last scan, and guess what? No new error codes to ruin the day. Problem solved!
