Pontiac 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.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Various issues with the electric power steering system may develop and could require replacement of steering column assembly.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The turn signal switch may fail causing the hazard/turn signal flasher to continue to click even when the turn signal switch is off. Replacing the faulty turn signal switch will commonly correct this condition.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The front window sash brackets may break causing the window to come off track. Our technicians tell us that new brackets are available and can be installed on the old window glass if it is not damaged.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The passlock sensor in the ignition lock cylinder may fail causing an anti-theft system fault and a no start condition. Our technicians tell us that the ignition lock cylinder should be replace to correct this condition.

I WAS AT THE RED LIGHT AND MY CAR JUST SHUT OFF WHY

I have my pontiac for five yrs. it has 130,000 miles on it.I have not had any issues with it. and now everything is starting to act up. my power steering has been locking up. and my drivers side window will not let down anymore. but i'm going to fix her up and keep on moving because i love my car.

I really need to know if I should try changing my resistor blower motor since my heat/AC stopped working when I turn it on high?

I've had my 2007 GT since 2008 and I love it! Only issues I've had is the back brakes sound horrible (briefly) after it has rained and there is a clicking noise with the air/heat on. Other than that, this car has held up, everything works just as it did when I bought it. Pontiacs are really good cars. Hated to see them go.

Great value car. Owned this car since 2008. It is now 2014, and she has over 125,000 miles on the odometer. I got the base model with no power locks, windows, etc. Never had any major repairs at all. Replaced a rear strut after a four drive on rough gravel road and had a a/c hose break, replaced the accessory belt once...regular wear stuff, that's it. Been coast to coast and over terrain only trucks usually brave. Too bad they don't make them anymore.
