This SS VZ crewman is in very good condition It has had plenty of love and attention in its life....I've owned it for 2 years and has been a very reliable car... Very clean Rare Ss Thunder with the L76 6.0ltr motor and 6 speed manual... hasn't been used as a work vehicle, the tow bar was installed only a little while before I purchased the car.. I have spent quite a decent amount of money changing different sensors and lots of other items that were getting to the end of their life etc etc... al

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HOLDEN CREWMAN

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HOLDEN CREWMAN (2003-2007)

V8 versions of the Crewman need a close check of the engine for worn out hydraulic lifters, valve springs and rocker bearings.

A ticking noise from the engine on start-up is the first sign of trouble and while you're in there, check for oil leaks, particularly around where the engine joins the transmission.

On VZ (later) model Crewmans, the big issue is timing-chain stretch which affects the V6 engine. A rattle when the engine is cold or is revved and returns to idle is a pretty good indication that this problem is present. A new timing chain is the fix, but it's a big job.

And like any work-oriented vehicle, make sure the Crewman in question hasn't been worked to death by a previous owner.
