It ran fine when I got home parked it but the next time I tried to start it, it just cranks. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Remote start quit about 6 months ago but has not had any problems since then. It won't even act like it is going to start, tried starting fluid and still nothing.
06 G6 won't start, good fuel pressure, battery, spark will crank but no start. on 2006 Pontiac G6

i am having the same problem as you are with my car. It was running perfectly fine and then nothing. I took the car to pepboys and paid almost a grand and they did not fix the problem. Now my engine just shakes and rattles when i am idle.

Nope, it was my buddy's car and they just let it go back. They called a shop and they told them it sounded like the timing chain and it would probably be better to sell it for scrap! He replaced a lot of parts trying to figure it out and it never helped.

I bought a brand new G6 within 6 years we had to replace transmission, racket pinion steering, Catalytic Converter. The repair man said this is ridiculous for a car only 80,000 miles. Then in the last two months the car did not start while visiting in another state, the car was towed and a new starter put in. I drove it three weeks and was in Pa again visiting parents from upstate NY and it did not start again. It was towed to the same location and when the car arrived it started up. They insisted there was nothing wrong whatsoever. Drive it again homeand for a week and it stops in the middle of the road. I got it started but then it was in turtle mode and something said engine in sleep mode to save... just like that it excellerated on it's own. Taken to a GM Dealer... nothing on diagnostic and another charge and it runs just fine. A couple weeks again doesn't start towed to different gm dealer. They said diagnostic showed 300 on Battery when it should be 600. Another couple hundred later we leave with car running great this time it did not start after 4 days. We cannot afford a new car. We asked about trade in. They were going to give us three hundred and in the last three years we invested 7 grand. And get this last year the transmission went again was under warranty and now cat converter light on and this was only two years ago. Does anyone anyone out there know anything about this start not start issue. When the car starts it runs great speedy no shaking nothing else. We bought new tires last year low profile expensive 800.00. I have to find someone to help us. Also I wrote to GM twice three years ago and they could not even address me after we bought three new cars from them. My husband has a 2001 Chevy truck that has not had a problem yet but normal break and simple things. Nothing to rip us off and this truck Silverado is old. Help anyone please. I wrote to Pontiac.... chances are they will not care since they don't make anymore. there is a recall on the 2005 g5 for ignition problem. What if this is the case on the G6.
