Pontiac Aztek Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Pontiac Aztek

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 Body Control Module may fail causing the power windows to stop working and other various electrical system faults.

I still consider my 7+ year old car my #1 vehicle, have put less than 3000 miles on the new SUV. Those of who never bought one don't ...

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.
