  3. Engine Oil: what's best?

    Like my other thread about transmission and TC oils; I now want to understand what the recommended engine oils are and the pros and cons. The AWD is coming up for a service and I notice that the oil is dark black. I'm surprised because I had this done only about 8000 kms ago just after I bought...

  9. AWD stalling at idle

    Hi guys, just after some advice. Our TL AWD, which we've had for more than 10 years, occasionally stalls when idling e.g. waiting at traffic lights. It just cuts out and you need to re-start it, but it re-starts straight away. We had some issues a couple of years ago with stuttering while...

  12. What is this paint code named?

    Hello all, I'm trying to figure out what the paint code KA (a metallic white with a pearly grey-green cast) is named, can anyone help? It's in a 1999 KA Verada. I've looked all over the internet, but this has eluded me.

  13. AWD Transmission failure

    My 2005 KW Verada GTVI transmission developed a grinding noise a couple of weeks ago. I had the RACV tow it to my local mechanic and gave it a road test and came to the conclusion that there was some flaring. The noise had disappeared but it turned out to be a failure in the overdrive unit. Lots of...

  14. good tyres for dirt/mud/snow driving

    So, I need new tyres, as my front ones are suffering from the painful outside edge wear that from what I tell is a common issue. It's certainly been an issue the time I've had the car, however i think the tyres I have on it are the quickest ones to wear down. I'm a bit disappointing, as I was...

  16. WhiteAWD returns with another whiteAWD plus 380swap

    I'm not a young man, and probably emblematic of the Magna driving caricature. As I look back my big regret was trading my AWD for a VZ Monaro, it was a fine car but wrecked by coilovers, from a suspension company known for getting things wrong. The ride was so awful on the Monaro it was replaced by...

  17. HM headers and Lukey exhaust?

    One difference i noticed immediately between the FWD Verada and the AWD is the perceived loss of power, (due to all the extra weight on the AWD I believe). Most of the time it's not very noticeable but occasionally, such as when overtaking, it's really apparent. I'm interested in any simple mod...

  18. AWD whine on acceleration

    Hi there, we've just inherited an 03 Magna AWD and after just a day of driving I love it to bits. Such an easy car to drive and is so quick at the lights when needed. As with all older cars it has some problems and niggles that we'll get the local mech to have a look at, but the rear diff (I...
