I had just bought fucker. Drove Nebraska to Minnesota 3 weeks later timing chain goes I got a new/used motor no ive just been having shitty luck. I noticed smoke in front off the car left side something is smoking but no light are on. And it is burnt never was be4Now it's starting to slip gears. I pretty much wanna know if it even still worth fixing 95 thousand miles was at 143000.. Seems like a guy can never get ahead with vehicles

I have a 2006 g6 gtp. I just changed the oil, filter, and replaced the gasket and filter on the fluid pan for the transmission, and added new fluid. I also cleaned the throttle body, and changed the air filter. Now my car is idling high at times. Sometimes when I slow down coming up to a stop sign, the car will idle high, at about 1000 rpm. If I let the car idle forward for a bit the rpms will gradually get higher until it shifts to second gear. Also when I'm on the highway, at about 50-70 mph, the rpms will be at about 3000, they are normally at about 1500 when the engine calms after shifting gears, I've noticed that the car burns gas twice as fast when this happens. Help please. Another problem I have is the power steering is leaking from somewhere I don't know where from though. I have to add every other day. One more problem is I have a oil leak. It's NOT the oil pan gasket, or drain plug. Looks like it is coming from above the oil pan on the left side if you are laying under the car.
this seems to be the only problem -- noisy? very frustrating -- haven't had a car newer than 1994 EVER, so I'm really excited about this adorable red car. price is only $1500 -- maybe $500 to have a mechanic do the wheel bearings? I just don't know!!!

My cars power steering went out yesterday while I was driving. I received a recall notice so I took it to a GM dealer. He made the comment that the recall only cover the motor and nothing else. He told us it might end of costing us money if it the pin or ssnsor. But I read a list on here that said it replaced anything to do with the power steering.
If I flip the relay it seems to start right up. Does anyone have any ideas on what it is? There's no codes but sometimes ignition key will stick when I start. Then I know it won't start. But now she started dying out as I Drive

I have a 2009 pontiac G6 and the engine light came on and the code read camshaft sensor. So I replaced the sensor and deleted the codes. Light is back on. I also noticed on the old sensor there was what looked like black burnt oil paste on old sensor. Not sure if that's command. Wondering what I should do nexted. Car runs fine but electric start won't work with engine light on.
My car is a 2008 ive only had this car for 3years....back in 2013 there was a recall on my shift cable i took it to the dealership where they said they fixed it (remind you its been the same shift cable in the car since 2008 when the car was made) Last week my shift cable went out....what i dont understand is if they fixed it the 1st time quote on quote then why 2years later the "NEW SHIFT CABLE" goes out in that case i should have kept the same one that was in the car to start from 2008-2013....i paid $216.00 to get my car fixed and they are telling me that i cant get my money back because they quote on quote fixed the problem in 2013 when i took it in for a recall....So my question is: Did anybody take there car in for a recall for the Shift cable and it still wasnt working or went out?
The sound changes in pitch dependent on the speed. It makes the sound regardless of engine speed as the sound doesn't change when I place the car in Neutral. It started about 2 weeks ago and it seems to be getting louder. At first it was intermittent but now it's constant. I replaced the front brakes but that didn't affect the noise. It seems to be coming from the front axle area.
Got transmission cable fixed on the recall then next day car won't start took it back now they saying it's the starter.the car act like it wants to start but wont.no codes came up
