2004 Pontiac Aztek Problems

Engine -- Verified

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.

Engine -- Verified

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.

Brakes -- Verified

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

2004 Pontiac Aztek Reviews

I absolutely love my car. It gets great gas mileage, drives well even in the snow, and has never given me any problems. My only complaint is the spoiler on the back window that can create a visual problem, but you adjust to it.

Great car. Wouldn't trade it.

I own a 2004 Pontiac Aztec. I love the body and inside design. However!!, I have had the most electrical and ignition problems. I can not read the odometer, radio settings nor does the gear shift light works. I have been told that a new fuse will not fix the problem but that someone will have to go behinde the panel to fix the problem. The motor in the window stopped working and the window will not let down. Also, I have had the ignition switched replaced twice (2009 & 2012) and the stearing colume has been replaced once, with the first ignition replacement. The key sticks and the last time the ignition switch was replaced because the car would not turn off. Although, I have a new switch and key, the key still sticks!! And yeah, at times it is difficult to put the gear in reverse,OMG, not the transmission. How can I fix the lights and what may be the cause of the other problems?

2004 Pontiac Aztec, everyone laughed at the shape...My kids called it the geometrical object.
I have 212,122 miles on it and not that many problems. I have put brake pads on about 5 times. It's good in all weather. Condensation gets in headlamps have replaced 2 or 3. It's
security system locked me out due to a blown fuse and had to be towed to the nearest dealer-my radio said that the vehicle had been locked. The alternator was replaced while on warranty
I have been on this site to see if any one has had a transmission problem?.
