Pontiac Aztek ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned, the transmission system should be completely flushed.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
Pontiac Aztek QuestionsMy climate control panel is dead. (1 answer)
The climate control panel is dead (the knobs to turn on the fan and blower do not work, but the AC sensor light, rear defogger and rear hatch opener all work. The fuse that is listed in the book looks ok....so what else could it be. Radio works fine too.

Pontiac Aztek RecallsThe Fuel Tank Inlet Check Valve Can Crack and Leak
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.
