2004 Pontiac Aztek Problems

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.

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

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

2004 Pontiac Aztek Recalls

Due to variations in the manufacturing process, or exposure to high heat may lead to a fracture in the tank inlet check valve. Fuel vapors may pass through the fracture and accumulate on the side of the fuel tank. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank. The recall began December 4, 2007. The GM recall number is 06230.

Contamination of the ignition relay contacts may cause high resistance inside the relay. This can affect signals to the powertrain control module, resulting in intermittent vehicle stalling. The vehicle may not restart immediately, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ignition relay to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin during May 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05014.

On 79 vehicles, a weld between the fuel tank inlet check valve and the fuel tank can fail. As a result, a fuel odor or leak could develop and/or the Check Engine Light could illuminate. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank by serial number and replace it if it's on the list of affected fuel tanks. The recall began during November 2003. The General Motors recall number is 03055.
